This hotel has the most stunning view of Saldanha Bay from the Dining Room, Lounge and, if you are fortunate, most hotel rooms. The staff are generally very friendly and extremely helpful, top marks to them. The booking process was seamless and swift. A fruit and snack platter was present in the room, a very nice and welcome gesture .... More

We stayed at the protea hotel for one night, in the 2 suites next to the swimming pool. Stunning views and a very very nice room, so we really wished we could chill around a little longer. We were running a race in Langebaan very early the next morning. First they arranged awesome meal packs for breakfast and they even... More

The Protea has just undergone a refurbishment and has definitely flowered . Sea views and crystal clear pool make this a great place for a quick break without destroying the bank balance. This is a very quite and relaxing destination. Breakfast is outstanding and can be taken on the terrace The staff are very friendly and courteous. Housekeeping are ways... More

We spent 2 nights here during the Easter weekend. It's been upgraded in recent years, so the look is fresh and contemporary especially in the lounge area with beautiful furnurnishings and sweeping views out over the bay. Receptionist was very friendly and welcoming. The lounge has a bar area, service here was slow and not in line with most chain... More

I'm not usually a fan of large corporate hotels, but i stayed here for a few nights on a business trip and i could not find one single thing out of place. Breakfasts were really good. Room was very well designed with every little thing you could possibly need on a trip provided for. They supplied everything you could ask... More

Having stayed at Protea Hotels in the past we were keen to try the Saldanha Bay Protea on the West Coast as it is only a short drive from Cape Town. Although only a 3-star hotel, this is more than compensated for in the friendliness of the staff and the fantastic location. We stayed in a family room overlooking the... More

This was my first ever Protea I stayed in 15 years ago. It just gets better and better. Super friendly efficient staff. Made to feel at home, again. Great food. Lovely new rooms- Great view and placement, but not very private. Great view. Only sad part was there was no WiFi in our room.

We decided to go away on short notice and as I am a Prokard member, thought it a good idea to check out the West Coast. We were pleasantly surprise with the Protea Hotel Saldanha Bay! The staff were very friendly an when we asked whether we could be upgraded to a suite, they were very accommodating... The hotel has... More

We have previously stayed at this hotel. The service levels are excellent. The staff is very caring , polite and friendly. You just need to ask and they will assist. The manager is also very hands on and interacts with the guests if he is around, which is very often. I think there are not many hotels which can match... More
