September 2013: Protea Hotel Sea Point has opened its doors to show a fresh new face to GUESTS who are already enjoying the light and airy seaside feel.

The hotel was closed for winter to gut the public areas, restaurant and sea-facing rooms, and while the facade may look the same, the hotel inside has been completely transformed.

A surfboard resting on a mini beach at the hotel entrance sets the stage for the new public areas that are now an open space incorporating a 9m long communal work table, iPads have been fitted into the new communal work table, for GUESTS to take advantage of the 500Mb of free Wi-Fi they receive each day.

The hotel’s restaurant patio has been redone in a comfortable beach house style..

The hotel boasts family rooms that are more spacious and offer greater flexibility with the option of four single beds or two double beds; ideally suited for families and groups.

Protea Hospitality Group Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue, Danny Bryer, says the transformation of the hotel interior is staggering.

 “It’s a two-minute walk to the Promenade. Clifton and Camps Bay’s beaches and the city centre are a 5-minute drive away, as is the V&A Waterfront,” says Bryer.

“Protea Hotel Sea Point is one of those hospitality properties that provides a unique product offering for a range of different customers. It does immensely good conferencing trade, it’s a central location for business travellers and families love the location.”

Protea Hotel Sea Point is one of 12 Protea Hospitality Group properties in the city.
