The PortsWood Hotel
The PortsWood Hotel is seen as a piece of Cape Town’s history. The restaurant and lobby are built around the original well and holding cells for prisoners en route to Robben Island 300 years ago.

Today, The PortsWood Hotel is famous for its unique, personal approach to service - catering to the international traveller’s every need and anticipating their every desire. Rich in South Africa’s unique culture, The PortsWood Hotel is a must for any traveller looking for a historical experience within luxury accommodation.

The PortsWood Hotel is the type of place where you’re far more likely to want to extend your stay. Located a mere 22km from Cape Town International Airport, the elegant PortsWood hotel not only offers superior accommodation and a relaxed atmosphere, but a uniquely personal approach to service. This service commitment extends far beyond the leisure traveler to meet the demands of the international business people. Of course, no stay would be complete without one of the Quarterdeck Restaurant’s famous breakfasts or traditional Cape Malay dishes before taking the short trip to Cape Town’s vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront where a variety of chic boutiques and entertainment venues await.
