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... More

Very good basic accommodation with all facilities provided even a mini bar and fridge. Bed very comfortable, everyone made us feel welcome. Breakfast provided even a full English if you wanted it. Well situated opp stadium close to bars and a 10 min walk to V& A . Very good value for the price.

My husband and I had an excellent stay here! The room was clean and comfortable and and we had a balcony overlooking the city and ocean. It is in a great location for walking to V&A Waterfront and there are lots of great restaurants close to the hotel as well.

I stayed at the Port View Guest House for 2 nights while in Cape Town. The service was excellent and the rooms were definitely large enough for me traveling alone. This is a mid-priced stay in Cape Town, but definitely worth it. The staff is extremely nice and helpful, the grounds of the house are awesome (jacuzzi, outdoor seating, patio... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Port View House. The location is ideal: within walking distance of plenty of good restaurants, pubs and short distance with V&A waterfront. It is an excellent base from where you can explore the nice sightseeings of Capetown. Nazeema and Aneesa, the managers welcomed us and were very friendly. We did appreciate... More

We spent about 4 nights at Port View House, from January 8 to 14, 2014 and it was really one of our greatest stay. We've traveled in many luxury hotels and resorts in Europe, Asia, Africa, US, and what we can say is that for a Bed & Breakfast Facility, Port View House is really an amazing place to stay... More

When I checked the comment that my husband made on this B&B, I noticed a comment of "I will never stay here ever again". I was quite surprised and wonder what happened during the commentator's stay there. I was particularly curious about the the comment on the breakbast being "not even up to standard". To me, the breakfast was certainly... More

Port View is one of the best B&B situated in a quiet neighborhood within a short walk to waterfront. It is in a safe area and we felt comfortable walking to nearby restaurants even in the evening. We're impressed from the moment I walked through the garden to the reception area...warm and comforting ambience that was felt the moment I... More
