We come regularly to the Sea Point Protea and we are never disappointed. Service and comfort is unchanged over the years. Just want to say thanks to Amanda from housekeeping this time. You were so amazing and made the stay even more like home this time.

Stayed here for 2 Nights. Was upgraded to a suite without me asking. The suite has a nice balcony which overlooks the sea. The swimming pool was next to the suite. They had a complimentary espresso coffee making machine. Overall a very nice stay. Would definitely return.

I arrived at the hotel after 9pm after a long, hard day simply wanting to take a warm bath and crawl into bed....realized I left my facecloth at home. Called reception and was told that they do not have facecloths at the hotel... they don't keep any! Really???!!! Not a great first impression...Wonder what the response would have been if... More

Wow! Did I sleep really well recently when staying over at this hotel! Normally, I take a night or two to settle in, but this time round, I had a wonderful night's rest from the first night. I had room 608 which is nice and high up and I think it makes it quite a bit quieter. The room had... More

Leisl, Ruth and Lee Anne were fantastic and made our visit to the Protea, Sea Point hotel really enjoyable. The breakfast was a gem for such a small hotel and the swimming pool, although not huge, had a great view of the ocean. Our bedroom was clean and beautiful and our balcony also had a great sea view. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for one night during the peak season and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and tidiness of the rooms. The floor we stayed on seemed like it was recently renovated and we loved the decor and separate shower and toilet area. The room is a bit small for 4 people, but it served it purpose for one...

The staff were extremely pleasant and quick to respond. The room was clean, pool area was pleasant. Room a bit too small for a long stay, but the location is excellent and you can walk or get public transport from there very easily.

I´ve stayed at Pinacle Point Hotel once, and I would do it again. Is an amazing place, with awesome views! The personal was very nice. We stayed at a kind of "hose" and it was PERFECT! We were treated very well. The breakfast was Excelent and everything was perfect.

Our stay at the Protea Hotel Sea Point was poor, nothing stood out in a good way. We stayed for a couple of days in the peak summer months, and shelled out a small fortune, but I guess that is supply and demand. The room was very small and cramped, which made things worse as we did not have space... More
