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.

Other than the view, the service was the highlight of the stay. Simple things would have made it a five start stay; Wi-Fi access in the guest rooms, a gym / work out facility, adapters for out of country guests.

We had travelled to Paternoster from Cape Town, having heard that it, and other towns in the area, were old fishing villages and had some charming and historical atmosphere to offer. On that count we were a bit disappointed. But in no way were we disappointed with this Protea hotel. Our room was a reasonable size and the bathroom equally...
