We only stayed at this hotel for one night on our way to the Shamwari Game Reserve and were pleased with our stay. We were given a complimentary upgrade and had a very large and comfortable room. Also, hotel location is excellent, just by the beach and a few minutes walk from restaurants and the local mall and casino. Breakfast... More

We arrived at the Protea Hotel Marine after about 30 hours flying from NZ and stayed there for two nights before beginning our tour of the Garden Route. We received a warm welcome and although our room was not ready, were invited to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine and a drink. Our room was clean and comfortable with a... More

Our tour group of 37 stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My ocean view room was not huge, but had everything I needed, including a mini refrigerator, safe, hair dryer, and a desk with a light that allowed you to actually see what you were doing - a rarity these days! The breakfast buffet was great... More

I stayed here as part of a cricket team (Ambassadors of Cricket) for 2 nights in June 2014. The hotel is located 50m from the Indian Ocean and therefore rooms facing the ocean have good views. The hotel is a short walk from the Boardwalk casino and the huge number of eateries and pubs there. The hotel has a colonial... More

Very happy with our stay there. Beautifully renovated. Lovely spacious room. Very good full breakfast. First stayed there as a child in 1946 and in 2104 still a top hotel. Near the beach and beautiful walk ways in Summerstrand. Very good value.

Spent one night on the 18th of June. Very friendly staff make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Had a nice big room and it smelled fresh and clean when I opened the door. Breakfast was nice and a waiter was frequently there to refill the coffee cup and to take away used plates. I was also handed... More

The last 2 nights of our travels were spent here. Super big family suite. Consistent across the group, aside for the over abundance of oily foods available at breakfast. Service there a little haphazard. Clean, comfortable and welcoming, what more could you want.
