Stayed here for four nights. Superb location, walking distance to bars, restaurants etc. Felt safe to walk at night. We hired a car and got free parking which was a bonus but the city sightseeing hip on bus is nearby and goes to lots of places. Apartment was huge, Modern and with free washing machine and tumble dryer. Definitely would...

On trips to Cape Town we usually chose to stay in camps bay but decided to try somewhere different. Really pleased with our choice. Good view of Table Mountain to the rear and the V &A from our front balcony. Perfect location for a week in the city. We will be staying here again. Handy for the supermarkets for eating...

Leg 1 of our amazing trip to South Africa we were booked into Waterfront apartments. For location, space, cleanliness, could not recommend highly enough. We had a superb apartment for four adults with great all round views. However, we inadvertently left our safe open (didn't think we had but the management did a special check on it) and we had...

Friends who stayed at the Waterfront Village 3 years ago, recommended the place so we booked 10 months in advance and really looked forward to our stay. What a disappointment! While the check-in procedure was handled very efficiently and the location is perfect as it is walking distance to the V&A Waterfront, the apartment itself was the biggest appointment of...

really great place to stay while in Cape Town - walking distance to everything and very well equipped apartments, some with lovely views. Seals often seen on the decking. The complex is huge and a bit impersonal and it was very annoying to have to pay for wifi in this day and age in the apartment but the advantages far...

We stayed in the Pembroke 3 bedroom apartment which was beautiful, fabulous views directly onto the Waterfront Marina from the main balcony and spectacular view of Table Mountain and Lions Head from the rear of the apartment. We stayed over Xmas and the New Year so customer service was a little haphazard, the freezer in the fridge freezer was broken...

We arrived at the check-in time of 2 pm only to be informed that our accommodation was not ready. No apology or explanation was offered. One of our party was ill, which we informed reception of immediately. The staff member who initially dealt with us, and who was extremely unfriendly, disappeared in the back room, not to be seen again....

Great location but very dependent on which block you are in. After hanging washing on balcony for 2hours we were called to tell us we had been fined as not allowed!! No warning & note in ' rules ' asking to refrain but absolutely no reference to fine & when we raised mgt company refused to remove as said policy!!...

Situated near the busy V and A waterfront of Cape Town, these self contained luxury apartments are worth every penny. They are very spacious with a large bedroom and bathroom, and an open plan living room and kitchen. A balcony or ground floor outside seating area compliment the arrangement. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful too.

We have just had a week there. We paid for a superior room but was given one that at best was 3 star, very disappointing 3 bed and not at all like the photographs. They were quick to respond the next day which was commendable and moved us to a much more luxurious one but on the ground floor. On...
