Protea Hotel Cape Town Sea Point
Ranked #74 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Cape Town is a fabulous place to experience and the Sea Point Protea Hotel is a very great place to do it from.
The rooms are nice we checked out both the mountainside and sea view rooms and found that the mountain view rooms were smaller than the sea view rooms and the sea view rooms had the added advantage of a balcony from which you could see the sea.
I found the staff very friendly and helpful and know the area fairly well and were able to direct us to some great spots [See Patrick].
Being an avid fitness and outdoor person I found the gym on the small side although there is a Virgin Active gym close by [Green Point] unless the weather is really bad forget that you can run / walk / cycle on the beach walkway which is just down from the hotel and stop at the exercise points that are positioned along the way.
For the four days we stayed at the Sea Point it was great to workout and cycle along the beach road al the way to Hout Bay and Clifton Beach making it a great location.

The Spur is co-located within the hotel and provides room service but with in a 3 to five minute walk of the hotel you have great Thai, Chinese, Pizza, Steak and other restaurants some of which will delivery and most do take always. In addition within a 2 minutes walk from the hotel there is a Spar and a Woolworths food store.
You are not going to get bored or go hungry.

There is secure underground parking with elevator access to the room floors the cost of which is very reasonable.

I will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a Sea View corner room with Balcony.

Dear Drury P

Thank you for taking the time to post feedback on TripAdvisor.

Cape Town is a special city and we are so lucky to work in such a beautiful environment. With so much to do and so many sights to see, I am pleased that Protea Hotel Sea Point was the perfect base to do this from. Being located on the beach front, GUESTS have so many options nearby to choose from.

The TEAM is passionate about GUEST service and it is wonderful to hear that you found them to be friendly and extremely helpful. I will pass on your comments to them and congratulate them on their efforts.

I am happy that you were able to enjoy the outdoors and had the opportunity of exercising on the beachfront. With all that exercise, I am happy that the wide array of restaurants within walking distance was convenient.

I look forward to welcoming you back.

Kind Regards

Dear D-Ronak

Your title blew me away and put a big smile on my face. Thank you for posting your comments on TripAdvisor.

I could not agree with you more when it comes to the location of Protea Hotel Sea Point. It is very convenient to be minutes away from the local beaches, V&A Waterfront and popular sights.

We aim to provide the best GUEST service and it is reassuring to hear of your feedback, which confirms that we are on track for achieving this goal. I will commend the TEAM on their hard work and dedication.

Thank you for recommending our hotel and please be sure to visit us when you are next in Cape Town.

Protea Hotel was a very nice surprise. Great room, friendly staff, small but ok gym and great location.
From there i could go (by van) to Clifton Beach and Camps Bay within 5-10 minutes and go to Waterfront area by bus in 15 min.
The breakfast, though not included and expensive, is worthed every penny.
Staff was very carefull with me, as I was a lonely traveller. They gave me hints about walking around and what to avoid.
