Value-for-money accommodation in the heart of the V&A Waterfront Development, Cape Town's favorite playground. Guests of the Protea Breakwater Lodge will enjoy comfortable lodging a far cry from that enjoyed by its original guests, when the building was known as the Breakwater Prison. Built in 1854 to house the male convicts working on the breakwater in Table Bay, it remained a correctional institution until the end of the 20th century. Today, this historical building is superb choice for those wanting to stay in the heart of the city. For those visiting on business, the corporate facilities are considered some of the best in South Africa, affiliated with University of Cape Town's Graduate School of Business, the hotel offers 36 conference and meeting venues, all supported by state-of-the-art audi-visual equipment, and a dedicated function staff.

Great Stay

Value for money; Very good location (at the Waterfront); and Friendly Staff
8.7
Everything about the hotel is excellent. Would highly recommend it.
Dean R. Solo travelers United States of America, December 3, 2013
Gem of a hotel in a perfect location

Located right on the V&A waterfront; step out to the waterfront restaurants and shops, close to the wharfs for cruising, hop-on-hop trolly off right at the door
9.7
Staff was most professional and friendly; housekeeping was impeccable. A portion is in an old prison, so the prison corridors with guard walks are still there; but very much cleaned and attractive. Rooms are recently renovated (larger than the cells must have been !). Front door of the hotel faces away from the waterfront, but thru the back of the hotel you can pop down some stairs right to the action on the waterfront: Hop-on-hop-off trolly to anywhere in the city, the aquarium, sailing and diving excursions, exclusive shopping as well as more local shops in the artisan centers; excellent and wide variety of restaurants. Truly a perfect location for enjoying the city as well as stepping off to go outside the city, Cape Point (southernmost point), wine country, penguin colony, robbins island (where Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years) and many others.
Sim S. Families with young children Singapore, November 29, 2013
Close to V&A waterfront

Walking distance to V&A waterfront shopping. Interesting Hotel to explore as it use to be a prison.Coin operated washing machines makes laundry very affordable and convenient in the hotel itself.
