Completely enjoyed my stay at Port View House. The rooms, service and breakfast were upto standard and all these at such an affordable rate! The location is also very central and close to most tourist attractions. I'll recommend them anytime anyday😊.

The reception and service was excellent. No problem was experienced at all; slept well and had a fully stocked bar fridge with all the things we could ask for. The view and street is superb. Thank you for a great stay.

Great stay. Feeling at home. Great staff. Going the extra mile. Nice views from the top rooms. Excellent value for money. We travel many times to Cape Town per year and this will definitely become one of our regular places to stay.

Our bathroom wasn't very clean (particularly the toilet) but when we asked them to take care of it it was done right away. Some beds were more comfortable than...

This was okay at best. The initial buzzing in took about 10mins and the greeting was subpar as the manager seemed bothered that I was buzzing as she was booked for the day. So it wasn't a pleasant welcome. Checking in went smooth as I was given keys and shown to my room. The overall room is okay but there...

Located just a 15 min walk from the Waterfront, also close to many shops and restaurants, with lovely views over the bay and fresh air, this guest house has a number of plus points. Pleasant rooms, very comfortable bed, good size bathroom (although a couple of towel rails would have been useful), minibar. On the minus side, there are only...

Lovely house, good location close to nice restaurants at walking distance Parking not easy and many stairs to climb. Our room was not ready upon arrival but it was a nice room. Bathroom ok and nice balcony.

Breakfast served too late, starts at 8am, our first meetings start at 8am. Contingency plan was to put breakfast in the rooms the day before, but only a hand full of options. Person on duty at night was not very welcoming or happy to be there.

I loved my stay here in port view guesthouse. It is a quite neighnorhood but in a 5 -10 minutes walk you are in de centre of waterfront. In the mornings I relaxed in the sun in front of the pool after my breakfast at the balcony. The employees are really friendly and helpful. I would recommend to stay here...

“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.”
