The room is smaller compared with other hotels we stayed at in other cities in South Africa, but it is bigger than the Protea Hotel OR Tambo we stayed at in Johannesburg. The room is very nice - clean and nicely decorated. There is a small balcony that gives you a view of the waterfront. The location of the hotel... More

I slept like a child in the seriously comfortable beds here. Hotel staff went out of their way to help me with anything from getting extra room keys to printing documents and getting online. Housekeeping was great. I loved being 5 minutes from the beach and 2 minutes from banks, restaurants and supermarkets. Only complaints: the shower pressure was a... More

Not a bad hotel at all. I was initially put in a room without a desk - (really!) but on request my room was changed without fuss. Not sure how the booking process works but when a guest books under the name of a corporate, during the week, surely you assume the person is on business and therefore needs a... More

The hotel is lovely, but bare in mind, you will only get a partial sea view. Very clean and comfortable rooms. In South Africa, we only stay at the Protea Hotels. Protea Hotel Sea Point was our second choice as we always stay at the Protea Hotel President, but unfortunately they were fully booked and I understand why. But we... More

Stayed here for 5 nights, booked as a package through Kulula. Great hotel, friendly staff, comfortable beds. In an excellent location. Only downsides were the prices of parking and breakfast - but other than that, can't fault it!
