Lovely place that needs more TLC
Our stay was very pleasant and place is very central to all amenities. I do believe that the room should have been vacuumed daily and that all surfaces wiped, especially during this COVID pandemic.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We had a great stay at the Protea Sea Point. The only issue was the sliding door onto our balcony which needed maintenance as it was very difficult to open. Overall the stay was very nice.
