    Great location

    1. the window in the bathroom doesn't close 2. the receptionist wasn't there when we arrived, they said he was on his way when we had breakfast the next day but after waiting untill 9.30 (so we had no key en could not book our tours). We left a note (after he proposed that) with wich tours we wanted, he booked two totally other ones en said that he likes those better .One of the we could not change anymore altough we explicitly said that we dit not want cerain things in the tour. He sait all the tours were full (in low season !!!), since I told hem that i was not happy with that, al of the sudden he could rebook our second tour. 3. they charge you more than on their list for drinks (and 2.5X normal rates)

    We stayed at the pvgh for a few winter days in Cape Town with friends. The rooms are nice and clean. We liked the individual beds, the breakfast included, the excellent location and the very friendly staff, with helpful advice about what to do in the city.

    The staff and location were the best things about the place. The breakfast was definitely a great bonus as well!

    The location is great and easy to find as it's right behind the well known luxury hotel Cape Royale where you will also always find reliable taxis waiting outside. It's an easy walk from the waterfront, and walking to long street takes about 20 min. You're very close to the city but the location is quiet, relaxing and the air is very fresh. There's a lot of very nice (and surprisingly cheap) places to sit outside and eat on the street that Cape Royale is on. The pool and garden are great to relax in. We loved it.

    Our room got quite hot in the afternoon as there is no air conditioning. We didn't find this to be a big problem though as there's plenty of quiet space to sit outside in the shade in the garden or on the terrace. In the evening the sea breeze comes in and your room cools down very fast so when it comes to sleeping there's no problem!

    We arrived for our 1 night stay to a very conveniently located very pleasant guest house with a lovely garden/pool area. They have free wi-fi available. The room was basic but cooled with fans and we had a nice balcony. The staff were very helpful and offered advice and I would recommend this guest house.

    No air conditioning in the summer was hard to cope with but we did know ahead of our stay.

    The room have a nice balcony with sea view, the bed is very confortable. No noise. The staff is cool and friendly.

    No aircon. Not only this guest house but most of the hotels in cape town are expensive. Efects of the world cup maybe.

    I absolutely loved everything about Port View. When we walked in i though OMW, the room is so comfortable, nicely decorated and spacious, the garden is so soothing and homely. Alek, the guy that works there was so helpful and welcoming. The breakfast was delicious and the best part was the value for my money. I have found my residence guest house in Cape Town.

    Very good

    Really helpful staff who indicated the cool places to go and good wineries. Confortable beds and close to the nice V&A Waterfront. Really nice guesthouse, nicely decorated.

    The location is very convinient if you have a car, otherwise I would recommend a place closer to public transport.

    The manager (Alek) was very helpful in trying to accommodate us. On the first morning of our stay he provided us with useful information when planning our trip. He was very pleasant and nothing was ever too much when asked. We also booked our next stay there.
