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

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.
