The 4-star President Hotel (Protea-Marriott) is a well-known and popular option in Cape Town. It is one of Africa Deluxe Tours’ preferred hotels in its class and we recommend it with confidence.
The Hotel is located in Bantry Bay - just beyond Sea Point - about halfway along the coastline between the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and Camps Bay (both 5-10 mins). The hotel is situated just back from the Atlantic Ocean shoreline and on the lower slopes of iconic Lion’s Head and Signal Hill. It’s about 10-15 mins from the City Bowl (CBD) and a similar distance / travel time to the Table Mountain Cable Way.
The modern multi-storey apartment-like building is curved towards the ocean with an outdoor swimming pool and ocean views as the focal point. For the best views the ocean-facing rooms are of course the best option. The back-facing or ‘mountain-facing’ rooms get better the higher the floor that you’re on. The hotel offer various rooms types, all spacious and well equipped - standard (double or twin), one bedroom apartments (double or twin) and two bedroom apartments (one or two bathroom versions).
The hotel has a selection of in-house restaurants and bars - also serving meals and drinks on the pool deck outdoors.
The establishment is serviced by various tour companies and excursions may be booked direct or via the hotel’s concierge desk. About a 100m walk down the hill from the hotel will put you on the Bantry Bay shoreline which leads to the excellent Sea Point Public Pools and the -Promenade beyond. The shoreline and Promenade extends a good 8km all the way to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and makes for a enjoyable hike or run.
