As part of its preparations for local tourism year-end holiday period, the KZN based Protea Hotel Edward has completed the construction of 30 new additional rooms.
The 13 sea-facing rooms and other new standard rooms will be available from 17 December. The new rooms take the total number of rooms in the hotel to 131.
“These new rooms are absolutely state-of-the-art and lend themselves to a range of uses including exclusive dinners, private break-away session rooms and small cocktail events,” said Danny Bryer, Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue for Protea Hotels.
“The rooms are kitted out with high-back chairs, 55’ HD TVs, drop-down screens, cappuccino machines and mini-bar facilities – making them among the most prestigious venues on offer in Durban.”
The hotel underwent a full renovation inside and out four years ago, being redecorated in a style sympathetic to the overall elegance and quality of the property. The style selected for the new rooms is consistent with the features introduced four years ago.
Cool and calming colours in rich, sumptuous fabrics were chosen for the graceful furnishings, but a nod to the modern era also meant equipping the rooms with LCD TVs, new electronic door locks, comfortable executive work stations and safes. These features have all been carried through to the new rooms.
