      The warmth and welcome of the hotel staff - efficient service - dining no matter what time of day - was carried out with care and courteously - staff approachable with warm smiling faces.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      Convenience to the waterfront and safety (felt very comfortable walking around the area)

      The rooms are a bit dated but I understand refurbishment is being carried out.

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      The convience to every thing. The willingness of the staff to make our stay very comfortable

      That there was only Malay type food available at the Restaurant in the Evenings, meaning we had to go else where to eat .

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Both the Staff and the Facilities were of an excellent standard. The location, close to shopping & dining, was also good.

      The location so close to the V&A Waterfront was exceptionally convenient and the staff were particularly efficient.

    • Older travelers

      Very friendly and accommodating staff.

      The hotel is getting very run down. It is old, tired and needs to be refurbished.

      Excellent, friendly and personal service from all staff! Conveniently located with resepect to v&a Waterfront, parking, etc.

    • Single
      10.0

      The overwhelming friendlyness of the staff, their great support in arranging trips in this beautiful region. Their perfect location to both a magnificent harbour site (with a great selection of restaurants to choose from) as well as to a huge shopping mall with all shops you can think of.

      Very nice and helpful staff. Great location. Excelent price/quality relation.

      I would have liked to have shampoo and conditioner not in one bottle but separate

      Staff very friendly , well run and great location

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      My stay at the Portswood exceeded my expectations in the respect that staff were friendly, helpful and very efficient. This was our first trip to Africa and I found right through Africa that the service was excellent but perhaps more so at the Portswood. Keep up the good work!

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      Proximity to V&A Waterfront complex is the biggest plus but the quality of the hotel, the very friendly and helpful staff, the close at hand parking, the excellent restaurant, and the overall value for money are all important plus points too. To be welcomed "home" by name each time you arrive back at the hotel is a lovely extra touch.

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      The staff were amazing to me and my friend, so helpful and friendly, we had questions for them everyday and nothing was too much bother for them, they were great! The location is also great, just out the front door and down the steps to the V&A waterfront area. We loved our stay here and loved Cape Town!

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Excellent breakfast.,Nnice rooms and a lot of help from the desk and the concierge. All were very friendly and wanted us to enjoy the stay. The hotel is also located in a safe area of Cape town.
