The Hotel has a great location, walking distance from V & A Water front , and Business center is also close by. Rooms are quite small corresponding to the price that you pay.

Also Hotel doesn't accept USD for settling billing which I believe shd be option with any international

Stayed here for a quick overnighter after arriving from Dubai. I was pre-upgraded from a standard Queen to a Deluxe King. Upon checkin was upgraded further to The Dock Suite - essentially a large open plan corner room with a large sofa & a TV/desk diving the space from the bed. T

I visited the Protea Breakwater Lodge because of their relatively new affiliation with Marriott and my elite status there. It was extremely reasonably priced, and I wondered if it would live up to my expectations. It exceeded them in just about every way.

We stayed at this converted prison on the last leg of our trip to South Africa.

There are parts of this hotel which remind you of its former purpose but it is perfectly acceptable accomodation although the room we had was a little cramped. Nevertheless it had all the amenities y

Hi, with a gold member of Marriott do I will be able to access the complimentary breakfast with your this property?
No you will not. My husband is also Gold member and I do not think they have a member's lounge and do not offer any perks like breakfast. Yo ufo get points and a check-in gift of points or water. They have a coffee machine and some cookies in the reception which is free for residents to take. That is what I remember.

Hi, The booking site states that there is building works for a new conference centre going on at the hotel until March 2019. Did you notice this, did the noise start early/end late or disturb your stay?
Sorry just seen this. We didn't notice any disturbance at all.

Hi, Chantal. What would you like to know about this accommodation? Is this the best Marriott to stay at in town for location? There are several, we are from the USA, and we have only three days. We'd like to do day tours, go to the beach, dive further south, and see Robben's Island. We'll be coming off of a nine day camping safari from Zimbabwe and Kruger, so we also would like to end the trip in comfort as well. Any advice regarding this would be helpful. We definitely want to stay at Marriott and appreciate any input, especially from someone who lives there.
We stayed here and found the hotel quite basic. If it's a bit of comfort you're looking for after your safari I would look elsewhere around the V&A Waterfront.
