We stayed here for three nights, driving there directly from Cape Town airport. We hadn't visited a Protea Hotel before but we wanted to stay in this area and we have a loyalty card with Protea Hotels so we used it to get discount on meals. Saldanha Bay is industrialised but the setting of the hotel made up for this. It is set on the water's edge and most of the rooms have a fantastic sea view. Ours was light and sunny, clean and comfortable. The bathroom did need modernising but was clean with an excellent shower and constant hot water. The room also had a fridge. The hotel bar/lounge had sweeping views and a lovely outside terrace. There was also an outdoor pool. We ate in the restaurant, the food was good (especially the chips) not gourmet cuisine but simple and tasty. The breakfasts were very good, eggs freshly cooked in front of us; my husband loves a fresh chilli omelette which they were able to do. Some friends who have a home in S Africa stayed there after us and also enjoyed their stay.
