Guest reviews for The Portswood V&A Waterfront

5 out of 5
This is by far my favorite hotel in Cape Town. The staff is exceptional and always makes me feel welcome and appreciated. The location is perfect for shopping, restaurants and even for work at the convention center. The breakfast chefs and team are just wonderful and always start my day off right! I will be back here again!
