Great hotel in a great location

A great hotel situated close to the waterfront. Good location, rooms, staff, food and wifi - what more do you need? Will happily stay again on my next business trip.

Perfect location

Posted May 6, 2014
Lovely hotel, very accommodating. Everything clean, friendly staff, but best part was walking distance to waterfront and sightseeing bus. Felt very safe as well.

Excellent location.

This hotel has the perfect location with under a 5 minute walk from the V&A . The pool area is nice but you can use the pool at the sister hotel 'The Commodore' which is literary next door. You can get free wifi there also. The staff at the hotel as so friendly and the breakfast was amazing. I'd definitely stay again! I had a lovely time.

Good Location

Well located for the V & A Waterfront, the Portswood is a comfortable, if not spectacular hotel. Priced on the "expensive side, its rooms are a little small but comfortable. The hotel location is its main attraction, as there are several better and more competatively priced similar hotels in Cape Town.

Great location near V&A Waterfront

Posted Jan 11, 2014
Pros: Friendly and accommodating staff, nice variety at the brunch breakfast, quiet atmosphere, internet availability.
Cons: The key card system could be improved. Several tries (and holding your mouth just right) may be needed to open some guest room doors.
Location: Just steps away is the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.
The Portswood is just across the street and up some steps from the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. There you can easily catch the hop-on hop-off bus for spectacular rides and views of the city's attractions. Taxi fare to the airport is about 30 U.S. dollars.

Great location but slightly tired hotel

Posted Jan 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel is ideally located for the Waterfront area and there's ample car parking (additional charge). The service was good, but the hotel itself is looking a little bit tired in both decor and serviceability (eg. door locks are temperamental and it can take a while just to get into your room). Also had a problem with WiFi connectivity, but this was rectified.
