An entirely wonderful experience
The Portswood V&A Waterfront is a terrific hotel. The staff are helpful & friendly. Our room was lovely and spacious, with wonderful amenities and touches. And the location is great. It's easy walking down to the waterfront and all the lively things happening there. We very much enjoyed our meals in the restaurant. The 1st night two of our party had a Malay sampler meal and it was truly impressive. And our waitress was so charming - one of our favorites we encountered on the trip. We really appreciated her service and her friendly humor. Everyone was helpful at the front desk and throughout the hotel.

GOOD LOCATION NEAR V & A Harbor in Cape Town
Great location only 2 blocks to the harbor and mall with many restaurants. Breakfast was included in my 7 day booking. All the action is at the harbor at both inside and outside the mall and was only a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Attentive staff.
