Good 6.0
A little date but absolutely fine
The Hotel was absolutely fine as we were only staying one night, it is a little dated and in the near future probably in need of a refurb if you compare it to the V&A (although there is a price differential). The benefit for us was the onsite parking and it was only a 5 min walk to the Waterfront

Amazing staff
Amazing visit with really helpfully and friendly staff. 2nd time we've stayed here and it never disappoints. Location is ideal right next to the waterfront. Already looking forward to booking our next visit to Cape Town and will be looking to stay at the Portswood again.
