About Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town Waterfront Breakwater Lodge


Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town Waterfront Breakwater Lodge offers value-for-money accommodation in the heart of the V&A Waterfront Development, Cape Town's favorite playground. Guests of the Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town Waterfront 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 audio-visual equipment and a dedicated function staff.
