Cape Town - Portswood or Commodore

In August I will be staying 4 nights in Cape Town with my nephews who are ages 12 & 14. Does anyone have recent experience at either the Portswood or Commodore? Is one better than the other for 1 adult and 2 kids?

I previously stayed at the Victoria & Alfred. How do they comnpare with the V&A?

Thank you

The Commodore is the big sister to the Portsowod in that they both come out of the same stable of Legacy Hotels. The Commodore is a more flashy hotel with a pool and slightly better rooms than the Portswood however with that said there is absolutely nothing wrong with the Portswood if you are looking for a no frills, comfortable, safe place of stay. Both hotels are well located relative to the Waterfront and in August I reckon you should obtain some good rates from both hotels. Btw you should let me try and obtain a further discount for you at any of the two hotels as I am 100% sure that I can gain you a lot of savings via tour operator commission that I pass on to visitors to my great city. If you write to me I will tell you more about this.

I assume that you want to know about the Portswood or the Commodore versus the V&A in your last question. In response the V&A is a lot more classy in decor and room size but then it is also more expensive than the Portswood or Commodore. The V&A also has good views from all its rooms which is not a guarantee at the Portswood or Commodore. If I had to choose overall then value for money I would choose the Portswood over Commodore over the V&A because of the amount of time that you stay in your hotel when you are on vacation the Portswood or the Commodore certainly fits this bill.

Hope this helps.
