Our stunning sea view room was comforable and the view was awesome. The staff were very helpful and extremely friendly. The pool looked inviting and drinks served out on the patio were just the thing for a hot afternoon. The food was good.

The restaurant has a very clinical look and feel, with rather limited sea food menu, but reasonable service. Has a lovely view of the bay. The food quality is average with slightly higher than average prices. Would not recommended for a romantic dinner, but for business it may work.

We visited the Protea Hotel Saldanha this weekend. The staff was so friendly, efficient and helpful - much better than some of the other hotels in the group with better ratings, like Fire & Ice, Stellenbosch etc. The accommodation was top notch, much better than we expected. Why is this a 3 star hotel? Should be at least 4 star... More

This was such a pleasant surprise. The staff are super friendly, the service us excellent and the hotel was great. Definitely go back there again. On a drive back from Springbok I had to find a hotel to overnight at.

Drove up to the hotel and thought what am i getting myself into. The facade of the hotel looks like a motel almost till you step inside to meet the most friendly welcome by tge reception staff. Beautiful sea views from the room, restaurant in chill area. What made the stay even better was the friendly staff especially Jessica at... More

Stayed here in June and since may last visit a few years ago there had been some improvements however rooms are still dated and could do with some upgrades. Also the restaurant service is very slow and you can expect to wait for your food which unfortunately for us was sometimes incorrect and missing items.

Don't let the 3 star fool you into thinking that this hotel offers only the basics. It's well manicured lawns, stylish lounge, friendly staff and tasteful buffet is well-desserving of a ranking higher than a 3 star. This hotel comes highly recommended for families with small kids. I loved the fact that the games room was not filled with computerised... More

During a week-long work assignment up the West Coast of South Africa, we were glad to have selected the Saldanha Bay Protea Hotel as our overnight sanity break. The venue is close to the bay, with broad views of nature and industry. Aces to main roads and local facilities is convenient ...and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. Certainly ,... More

The place is not warm it is not inviting it is terrible, it is cold and soulless. There is no proper parking for guests because the little bit there is, is taken up by the locals that frequent the restaurant so you are constantly concerned about your vehicle. The interior is terrible it was cheaply done over to patch up... More

Stayed in room 108 right on the waters edge, the sunrises over the bay and you can actually watch it from your bed! The room has a nice crisp modern feel to it with all the charm of a seaside hotel. The dining room is very airy with lots of natural light and great service from the Staff. Check in... More
