Cape Town, 26 March 2019 – A modern, fresh refurbishment has taken place at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Durbanville, Cape Town, to create an appealing atmosphere for guests.
The reception area, lounge and breakfast buffet areas have all had a lighting upgrade to create a warm atmosphere, among other enhancements.
Urban excellence, rural hospitality
Situated in the heart of the Durbanville wine region, the hotel’s wine tasting area just off reception has had wooden dividers replaced by frosted glass panels to provide an intimate space that can also be used as a small meeting area or for private dining. This classy take on the wine theme extends to the conference rooms, where wine barrels with table tops play on the relaxed, wine farm feel.
In reception, the floor has been tiled with striking white tiles and the fireplace has a new look to it, for that cosy feeling guests have come to expect.
At the entrance to the restaurant and conference area, the wallpaper has also been changed to bring harmony to this space, as has the breakfast buffet area as you enter the Buonvino restaurant.
The conference area now comprises two bigger meeting rooms to boost capacity, with LCD TV screens, 65-inch projectors and screens, all of which are wireless. An upgrade to the Audio-Visual offering includes permanent white screens instead of data projectors, and the conference patio furniture has been replaced with two floating tables featuring international plug points.
There’s even more space to relax in the pool terrace area, with new tables and chairs adding to the ambiance. Environment-friendly artificial grass provides a low-maintenance area to wind down – it’s also suitable for birthday parties, as well as office and end-of-year functions. To encourage guests to enjoy this environment, there’s a buy-one-get-one-free cocktail special every Saturday.
In the lounge area nearby, there’s a pizza special every Friday, offering great wood-fired pizzas.
The rooms themselves have been given close attention, including the laying of laminated flooring, international adaptors in all rooms, bigger TVs, fresh wallpaper treatments and new blinds in all the one-bedroom and two-bedroomed apartments to offer a warm, inviting space.
“We are pleased to be able to offer guests a new take on Wineland’s hospitality – this refurbishment offers so much to those who are coming to the area for business or leisure. Durbanville is central enough to use as a base camp for exploring the W
