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

Beautiful view from room & lounge bar. Very friendly people! Rooms are clean and equipped well. I still can't figure out why it takes such a long time (1hour ) to prepare any kind of food, time between sitting down,starters and main is way too long!

We'd like to thank Lize-Marie Botha for wonderful service The hotel is lovely and clean and the team is so nice and friendly We really had good time. Only one thing, we felt that the breakfast buffet was a bit disappointing for R145 The atmosphere is not very romantic but the place is great for families with kids

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

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
