The Portswood Hotel

Centrally located, The PortsWood Hotel is a good quality 4* hotel just two minutes walk from the V&A Waterfront. It is ideal for anyone wanting to explore Cape Town or use it as a base for a golf holiday in South Africa, playing the local courses.

The hotel is a small, low rise building offering a bar, restaurant, swimming pool. The decor has a nautical theme but is not too over powering! Next door at the sister hotel (The Commodore)  there is a fully air conditioned fitness complex and spa treatments. There is wifi throughout the hotel. For guests on a self-drive holiday there is car parking available at a reduced rate for hotel residents.

The Quarterdeck Restaurant which specialises in Cape Malay/Indonesian infused cuisine, that incorporate the subtle spices of this region. Sample the African style curries, traditional Potjiekos or the Spitbraai. The Terrace next to the pool offers light meals and snacks which are also served in the “Links bar”. For those that prefer a quiet meal in front of the tv, there is 24 hour room service.

Rooms at The Portswood
The rooms offer all modern conveniences, with en suite bathrooms, air conditioning, satellite tv, bar fridge and complimentary wifi. The hotel has 94 standard rooms either double or twin configuration and 9 slightly larger suites. The emphasis is on comfortable rather than luxurious.

The hotel is a stone’s throw from the V&A Waterfront where visitors can enjoy shopping and dining at the al fresco restaurants. This is one of the main tourist destinations in the city and is the home of the famous Aquarium. It is also departure point for the Robben Island ferry and the Cape Town sightseeing bus.

There is on-site car parking at R75 per day if you are on a self drive holiday in South Africa.

For our golfing clients, there are a number of excellent courses in the vicinity, less than 30 minutes drive from the hotel. The Royal Cape, Steenberg and Westlake Courses are tucked behind Table Mountain outside of the city bowl and along the coast you can find Atlantic Beach and Milnerton.
