I was on business in Cape Town and spent 3 nights in Sea Point. This hotel has an excellent location and a friendly and accommodating staff, but it wasn't conducive to working (or sleeping). I found the room cramped not only because of its size but also because the plastic desk chair barely fit in the space between the bed... More

I had a very enjoyable stay at the Protea Hotel Sea Point. It is wonderfully close to the beach, which is a definite plus when you're visiting Cape Town for business. Rooms are comfortable, and there are countless restaurants and take-aways close by. The only repeated problem I had was the key cards that just randomly stopped working.

We enjoyed this hotel for it's clean rooms and great proximity to the ocean. Best of all was floating in the pool on the deck and seeing the mountain on one side and the sea on the other.

The hotel is good and adequate for a short stay. I stayed for four nights. Spur is the hotel restaurant and suffices for the odd occasion that one is not able to explore other culinary offerings of the city. The hotel is located well between the city and Camps bay and so allows one to go to Cape Town for... More

I stayed 1 night and would like to have stayed longer. Recent renovations gives it a sleak look. My room was below average in size not leaving much room if a second luggage bag was accompanied. Manager left a personalized addressed hand written welcome note in room which is a nice taste. Located 1 block from Sea Point promenade.
