Protea Hotel Sea Point
Text Lauren Gormley WHERE: Arthur’s Rd, Sea Point, Cape Town, 021-434-3344 WHY WE LOVE IT: You simply can’t beat the location: a short hop from Sea Point’s vibey promenade, minutes from the world-class beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay and international shopping at the V&A Waterfront as well as easy access to restaurants in Sea Point’s main drag. Recently refurbished, the rooms are simple but comfortable and the new dining area, with its oversized lampshades and Suzani print cushions, is a cosy spot to read the Sunday papers while enjoying breakfast. X-FACTOR: A nine-metre long communal work table in the lounge area is equipped with iPad stations and guests can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi. For more information, visit proteahotels.com.
