After staying at the V and A Apartments in Cape Town, the Protea had a lot to live up to, but it coped admirably.The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable by comparison with rooms in some English hotels, and the bathrooms were extremely good. Although we only ate breakfast in the hotel, the food was excellent, with a great deal of choice. Its enviable situation among the hills made for dramatic sunsets and you could never forget where you were with FRANSCHOEK emblazoned on the hillside. A great place to stay in the most attractive town we saw on our three week trip to South Africa

This was the first of the six hotels/lodges we stayed at during our two-week package tour of the Garden Route. Despite being part of a chain, the hotel has a really individual feel to it and really oozes charm.The room and bathroom were excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The meals were top quality and efficiently served. Franschoek itself is a pretty little town steeped in history. I would recommend this Protea to anyone.

The Protea Franschhoek is everything you need in a home away from home. There isn't anything I could fault them on.... excellent, friendly, prompt and professional service! Clean and comfortable room, amazing bathroom and shower! Great dining! and Lazing by the pool, sipping your favourite cocktail while the mountains loom around the classic style hotel is the perfect setting to relax and take in the mood of Franschhoek in classic Protea style.... we will most definitely be back!

Room Tip: Most of the top rooms have a nice view of the mountains, overlooking the pool area, and easy access...

Good hotel and clean. Only after insisting several times, the hotel accepted a voucher for a free night with the Protea Gold Card. Looks as if it is a bit of a scam those vouchers; the card is worth it's weight in gold according to the publicity of the chain but it is extremely difficult to sell your gold. No upgrade either (but admittadly, the hotel was fully booked). Although the card guarantees the best price available, we paid more after reservation than the walk-in price that was announced outside the hotel. The restaurant is good but not great.
The staff did help us though when we wanted to leave and found out we had a flat battery. Maybe I shouldn't have been that negative?
