“Fantastic Stay, One of better ones!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I stayed at Portobello Place (PP) when riding the Cape Argus. It was a last minute booking and I was trepidant! But Mavis & George were welcoming & HOSPITABLE. The room was exceptionally clean, the breakfast was scrumptious and PP is close to shops and restaurants, and, of course, Cape Town.
But, I have 2 very SMALL suggestions.
I think it's important to make sure that there is soap, shampoo in the bathroom - I had neither and had to buy my own.
It's annoying to be watching TV and someone elsewhere in the house changes the channel!!!

Otherr than these 2 small gripes, I highly recommend Portobello Place, it's excellent value.

Hi All,

If you are thinking of staying at a B & B that is clean, spacious, hospitable, amazing and everything else, then you have to stay at Portobello Place. Everything within 10 to 15 mins drive away. Mavis and her husband are absolutely great and we highly recommend this B & B. We will definatly be back.

I first stayed here in 2008 and have been back often, to find that my original assessment of this place
being one of the finest B & B establishments in SOUTH AFRICA, is accurate. The location is close enough to everything (BEACH; CAPE TOWN CENTRE; WINE ROUTES; AIRPORT), yet I felt cocooned in a fabulous nest of hospitality; luxurious surrounds; the best breakfast ever and the warmest hosts.The rooms are well-appointed with modern bathrooms and the property offers a shady reading/ dozing garden where one could also refresh in a rock pool.The owners are consummate professionals and will go out of their way to please - something not often found in this industry. Mavis and George have the best recipe for success: CARE; DEDICATION AND SINCERITY. IT'S NO WONDER THAT THEY SOMETIMES HAVE GUESTS STAYING A WHOLE YEAR !!!
