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

We went to Saldahna to visit family and stayed at the Protea Hotel. Did not expect much but was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was nice enough but the service even better. We found staff very friendly and willing to help. Rooms looked out over the sea and when you open sliding door you are on the grass and 1min walk... More

We have stayed at the Protea Hotel Saldanha a few times before. This hotel has the best view. It is situated right on the waters edge. The best is to sit out on the deck and sip drinks while watching the birds and the water etc. etc. Really nice. The last few times that we were there, the hotel was... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 days. Many locals visit here and the staff give preference to them. At the restaurant we were given non window seats because it is booked. This is around 7 in the evening when you can have a sea view. Around 9 when we left and it is dark, most of the window seats... More
