Stayed at this hotel from 28 Jan - 01 February 2016. We had an okay stay at the hotel, we had booked a family room. The room was very small. Did not enjoy their breakfast at all! The carpet from the lift on 4th floor when heading towards the pool side, was always wet. You wait forever for a lift,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The place is clean and refreshing, wish i could have stayed longer. it is not far from the sea, and also near some restaurants and a big Woolworth making your stay a lot easier.

We liked being less than a block from the beach and promenade. Neighborhood felt safe to walk around in during the day and relatively okay at night. The breakfast was passable. The attached restaurant provided the room service and it was not good. Small but nice pool area, nice lobby, helpful staff.

We were in room 215 a small room en suite. Unlike some hotels we stayed in the shower was easy to use. My thoughts were it would be a great place to stay for 1or 2 nights as there's not much room for luggage. All the staff we en counted were friendly and polite. The breakfast is a buffet great...

A nice Protea hotel, tucked away only a block from the seafront, Rooms were very clean with a small balcony where you could look out to sea. No in hotel restaurant, but excellent eateries on the main road only a few minutes away, Staff were friendly, and keen to help with any problems.
