Was here for a couple of days for a business meeting. Clean and decent rooms even though they are quite compact. Good WiFi connection. Excellent service. Decent conference facilities. They managed good buffet breakfast and lunch with good vegetarian options. Good value for money.

The only good thing about this hotel is the friendly staff. I'm amazed Marriott placed their name on this hotel. My room was very small- about 80 sq ft if that. It did not include a sofa.

Easy access to the double decker red bus stop, and restaurants. My only complaint was the noise due to the thin windows. Every time the...

Great little hotel with ideal rooms and very attentive staff throughout. Rates also very reasonable compared to the hotels at Waterfront, which is only a 5 min cab ride. Would definitely recommend for either business or pleasure. Rooftop pool was good too.

Protea Hotel SeaPoint is a comfortable and well located hotel in the heart of SeaPoint. The rooms are however very small. There was no separate bathroom and limited space around the bed for belongings.

This Protea Hotel is well located; has plenty of parking and a contemporary vibe. The pool is small, but does the job. Staff were pleasant. We had a glitch with our booking - something that continues to amaze me. Our interleading room request became adjacent rooms. We were hardly going to put our young children in a different room -...
