I received a call to confirm my late check in which I appreciated. Parking was an issue as you only cater for three parking bays. My office booked a halaal breakfast for me, this was not available to me in the morning.

Location is great, central for exploring main attractions. Clean and comfortable rooms. Only disappointed in the mattress quality and very little effort in the breakfast provided. Lastly, only 3 parking bays so be prepared for street parking!

We stayed there with my wife and really love the place. Cozy, Friendly, Great Breakfast! The location is very central and wonderful to go around. Quiet, peaceful, restful. The style is nice and the deco and ambiance is very relaxing. We certainly recommend Port View House, this little piece of heaven!

“The room at the second floor are nicer, thanks to the views. For couples or family, the room on the ground floor is nice and convenient to go in and out. Plus there is a small area like your own garden where you can have breakfast or diner or apero outdoor. Very nice in Summer.”
