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

Good location - within walking distance to the waterfront. Lovely breakfast - good spread of breads, fruits, yogurt, juices and nicely cooked bacon and eggs. comfy and clean bed.

Although Port View Guesthouse is not a guesthouse on the waterfront, it has a beautiful sunrise port view on the top floor rooms' balcony. When I stayed there, I enjoyed to take the sunrise photos every morning. The cheerful little garden of the house was welcoming its guests. Although the house is a bit aged, rooms are clean and bright.... More

The rooms of this Bead and breakfast are a bit small and old. Unfortunately the rooms are also not very well maintained. Specifically the bathroom and the windows could use an update. The breakfast however was of good quality and the staff was friendly and helpfull. The location is good, but for a Bead and Breakfast with the name Port... More

Relaxed. Accessible. Brilliant breakfast. Good rooms. I can easily recommend staying here for a chilled, easy going time in Cape Town. At this price really great value for money. You can walk to quite a few places around the corner, and at night it is quiet.

I really enjoyed my stay at this B&B, it was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was enjoyable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I think that this B&B is in a good location, because it is a close walk to the stadium so if you are coming to Cape Town to watch a sporting event or concert at... More

There is no parking. You park on the road. The outside is beautiful. This is a old house. They give you a room to stay in. It is very old and dated and very depressing to stay in. I would never want to book a place like this ever again. Very dissapointed. The breakfast is not even up to standard.... More
