Excellent location, good value for money! The people were very helpful to accommodate us, 2 families with children. The house is situated perfectly to do all the touristy things that Cape Town have to offer. We would definitely stay there again.

This place should be registered as a backpackers, and not as a guest house. Rooms untidy, beds are aweful, and quality of service leaves much to be desired. No parking for cars is available (except if you are "lucky" to find a parking

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!

Location was fantastic , the staff friendly and helpful, the room was nice although I think the bathroom needs a bit of TLC, cooked breakfast maybe a bit more variety. The garden was delightful. All in all lovely stay we had.

Our stay at Port View house was pleasant. Friendly and respectful staff. One thing I was very dissatisfied with is vehicle parking where your establishment has 6 rooms and only 3 parking bays that are not secure parking. Unfortunately didn't sleep peaceful thinking about my vehicle still being there the next morning. On one night I had to park on...

“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.”
