All aboard for seaside luxury

For a new variety of chic, waltz through the doors of The Portswood Hotel into an atmosphere of maritime delight. In the heart of Cape Town, you have the city at your fingertips and the reassurance of relaxation and service that surpasses convention.  

For the avid shopper, you could not get much closer than this to the revolving doors of Cape Town’s shopping paradise: the V&A Waterfront. Only 22km from Cape Town International Airport and mere minutes from Table Mountain and the buzzing CBD, The Portswood ranks high on the convenience list.

The stylish hotel offers a grand choice of 103 rooms, all embellished with classic splendour for an effortless and comfortable stay. As the sister hotel to The Commodore, this Waterfront hotel shares the nautical theme throughout the property. A Portswood experience is not complete without a meal at Quarterdeck Restaurant, filling the room with aromas of its specialty Cape Malay cuisine. Health and wellbeing is taken care of at the adjacent Commodore Hotel, and the striking Capetonian sunsets can best be enjoyed from The Portswood bar and pool area.
