Thank you to the Manager on duty Darryn
The Suite, pleasant staff, Heritage
We were approached by the Manager on Duty on the easter weekend about out stay and after he heard our concerns he went out on a limb to make our experience and stay a very pleasant one. The Suite was very comfortable and we had very good service. Thank you the Manager that turned our experience around. We are truly grateful for making our honeymoon a memorable one.

Great experience
Location, Service, Rooms
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Protea Hotel Edward. The room was comfortable, and it was great to have a balcony to enjoy the weather and vibe of the beachfront. The location is spot on, and the meals were enjoyable. The best though was the experience with the staff. The reception were welcoming and helpful, the serving staff in the restuarant and barman were all friendly and attentive. The best however were the concierge staff who were incredibly helpful, from providing an efficient valet service with my car, helpful with suggestions and organizing activities etc. Although this is an older hotel, it has everything you need, is very well located, but the staff also made the experience for me. I will definitely stay again.

The hotel needs to be refurbished.
Food. Incredible customer service. Seaview from our suite.
It was ok. Nothing to go crazy over. The hotel is best suited for business, not leisure.
