I was received very friendly by the receptionist. The room was neat and clean. It had an additional exit door onto the hotel gardens and views of the harbour and bay areas. It was lovely to wake up the sounds of the sea. I will definitely stay here again. The breakfast was diverse and lovely.

Stunning well maintained hotel. Check in was good. Excellent breakfast spread. However, need attention to detail in the restaurant and understanding its policies, especially its child policy in the restaurant. I struggled for three days for them to apply the policy correctly. Also, more halaal friendly options would be appreciated in their lunch menu such as chicken strips and chips...

We had a wonderful time here after a very busy stay in Hermanus. The staff is exceptionally friendly, the breakfasts were enormous and I must add, I ate the best omelette ever. The seafood platter is also to die for. We enjoyed our stay. The wonderful views are really a huge plus point.

We recently visited Protea Hotel Saldanha Bay for 4 days. What a lovely seaside destination! The moment you enter the building you experience the peace and calm created by the beautiful shades of blue and white inside the rooms. Our room had a view of the sea and was very clean and spacious! The food in the Muscle Cracker restaurant...

A central hotel with recently upgraded facilities. A safe bet when staying in Saldanha Bay. 120 km southwest of Cape Town. South Africa. Service is average but friendly. There are restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. An onsite restaurant is available. Parking is plenty with security on duty at all hours.
