Protea Hotel Breakwa527A54


SOUTH AFRICA – Africa’s largest hotel group, Protea Hotels, will reopen on 1 October its ProteaHotel Breakwater Lodge after its 50m rand (US$6.7m) renovation. 

The hotel formed part of the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business with its own conference and meetings facilities for up to 220 delegates.

“But, while the hotel had had a complete revamp, we’re striving to ensure that it remains excellent value for money in what is a reasonably expensive precinct,” says Hotel General Manager Charl van Wyk.

The biggest changes involved the business suites and deluxe units, which were first opened in 1991. The units comprised a small bedroom with a separate small lounge. 

Protea Hotels has a footprint of more than 120 properties throughout South Africa and seven other African countries.
