Once Cape Town's biggest prison, this national monument building has been well-converted into one of Cape Town's best hotels. The hotel has a small, attractive, tropical garden with a swimming pool that has a stylish water feature at one end. There is a cocktail bar that offers guests drinks both inside the hotel and at the poolside terrace. A gym, steam room and sauna are available to guests, as is on-site parking. (AHJ 07/08)

Just a 2-minute walk from Cape Town's famous Waterfront, the Portswood is also within walking distance of Cape Town centre, and is just 30 kilometres from the International Airport. The perfect location for those wanting to be in the middle of the city's best tourist attractions.

With its national monument status, the Portswood is an impressive historical building.

With its nautical theme, the lobby is a bright area with large glass doors leading through to a pleasant reception, with polished wooden floors and a seating area for guests. High ceilings give the lobby a nice sense of space. The reception has an elevated walkway, similar to a ship's deck, overlooking the central water and floral feature.

These relatively small rooms are of a very high standard. All are carpeted, have traditional dark wood furniture, a table and chairs for guests, and low lighting, giving the rooms a calm and cosy feel.
