The PortsWood Location Map

Situated adjacent to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Cape Town's premier entertainment and tourist attraction, the PortsWood is an oasis of calm and comfort alongside the active nightlife and vibrant restaurants of the Waterfront.

The PortsWood's success has been due to its superb service and excellent location. The hotel also is part of Cape Town's rich history, as the restaurant and lobby are built around a 300 year old well and the cells which held prisoners on their way to Robben Island.

The PortsWood offers a choice of Studio Rooms, Standard Rooms, Deluxe Rooms and Suites.

There is also a swimming pool for guest's enjoyment - ideal for relaxing by and sipping a cocktail after a day exploring the sights of Cape Town. The spa offers a range of treatments and a steam room.

The Quarter Kitchen is a relaxed, elegant restaurant offering an à la carte breakfast and comprehensive à la carte lunch and dinner menu specialising in Malaysian/Cape Malay Cuisine. For those who prefer the luxury and comfort of their rooms, room service is available 24 hours a day.

Directions For Drivers

From the N2 (Cape Town International Airport/the Winelands/Hermanus/The Garden Route): Take the N2 towards Cape Town. Keep on this road, following the signs for Cape Town North, and then M6 Sea Point. If in doubt, keep bearing right the whole time! You will then see the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) on your left-hand side (very large cream-coloured building), and there will be a set of traffic lights at a major junction. Go straight over this set of lights, and turn right at the next set onto Helen Suzman Boulevard (signposted M6 Sea Point). Keep to the right lane, and at the next set of traffic lights, turn right into Portswood Road - the hotel is then signposted.

From the N1: Follow the road to Cape Town, and you will see the CTICC on your left-hand side. Follow the directions as above.
