    Very good

    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.

    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 .

    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.

    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!

    Superb

    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.

    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!
