My family and I just returned from a week at the Protea Seapoint. We booked a family room. Although the room was slightly small, we found it to be modern, bright and airy, and well maintained. The staff were always friendly, and mostly willing to help. One thing that was annoying was that although the room was classed as a... More

We were absolutely not impressed with the lack of good customer service from this hotel, they could not even inform us before hand on whether we would need to pay for breakfast or not. To top it off when we expressed our disappointment in the service provided the staff could not even apologise. We asked for a sea view room... More

In sea point. Convenient to Waterfront and sea point beach front. Accommodation average. Breakfast average. Main road there is a Chinese which was awful. However there are lots of restuarants at the waterfront and in green side. Avoid the ones on main rd

My partner and I and her sister and brother in law visited the Protea Hotel Sea Point for breakfast during our recent trip to South Africa. We opted for the fixed price buffet breakfast which provided an excellent selection of foods. The food was cooked to order and was very tasty and enjoyable.

This hotel is where more typically South African's would stay when visiting Cape Town rather than the more touristic places around the Victoria and Albert waterfront. The hotel was modern with secure parking and the buffet breakfast, with cook to order eggs, was very good. The room was very well appointed with tea and coffee making facilities and the laundry...

Beautifully appointed with modern décor, furnishings, and finishes. Immaculate throughout with a large bathroom. Walk out the door and go left and you’re on the beach with Lion’s Head towering on the horizon; go right and you’re in the middle of downtown with lots of restaurants and shops. I enjoyed the nice view of the ocean from my balcony. The... More

We stayed here as part of a Cape Town/Safari group tour. We had no choice - and that's OKAY. Do know: I'm not really a picky traveller. Like many, if the room is clean, the beds are comfy and the service is good, I'm happy. Amazing: The breakfast. It was included for the tour - I don't know if it... More

The service was appauling, we had to call the reception 3 times before any of our requests were addressed. Our room was never cleaned for the full weekend.We also did not receive fresh towels or bedding the whole weekend. Worst service I have ever experienced in a hotel.

Reasonable price. Good family hotel. Well placed between city centre, Hout Bay, Camps Bay and the Southern suburbs. Adjacent Spur makes it easy with kids. Will make use of it again. One way street was a bit of a problem and parking a nightmare
