Booked at De Waterkant House which is a Guesthouse in de Waterkant Village. The room was old and needed an urgent refurb and the room was really dirty.. It was very disappointing and will not book de Waterkant again..

We had booked a 3 bedroom apartment for 2 couples, believing we would have at least 2 fair sized bedrooms but what we got was 1 double with ensuite and 2 very small twin rooms & a shared bathroom so we were not so happy on arrival. The downstair's lounge diner was a fair size with fully equipped kitchen. Our... More

On arrival I was greeted by Dorian who welcomed me with warmth and a wonderful sense of humor. After explaining to me how the accommodation worked, he handed me welcome packets with coffee and tea and bathroom essentials. Dorian then directed me to where our apartment was situated. Do not expect that your accommodation to be in one complex/building, it... More

We stayed for 4 night over new year and were in studio 11 in the Charles building. It was recently renovated and stunning looking. The staff were, as always amazing and you could not ask for a better location. (Especially if you are gay!) There are a few glitches regarding the newly renovated room. The ceiling fan could only be... More

Warning, do not stay here....recently stayed at 101 loader street, whilst out during the day we had some cash stolen from our safe, we were very fortunate that we didn't leave any of our jewellery or other valuables in the safe provided, whoever stole the money had access into the room as there was no break in, which is even...

Though in a very good location, I would never stay here again. We were booked into the villages through our travel agent and after looking at their website which included listing the various units available, we selected a particular unit that included an upstairs deck. This was confirmed with the voucher we received before traveling. However, upon our arrival we... More

Stayed for a week in a three bed apartment. The place was big enough and had a nice view of Table Mountain. The location is excellent. However there are several things that need to be improved. There was no wifi in our apartment. To get internet we had to take a 5 min walk to the reception and even then... More

Lovely area and we had an outstanding view of Table Top Mountain. The apartment was spacious but a little basic and showing wear and tear. Welcome packs arrived after we had already been to local supermarket to buy supplies. Huge downside was no internet in apartment,you had to trek downhill to reception to use wifi there. Not ideal and very... More

We had a deeply disappointing and frustrating experience with De Waterkant Village (Village and Life). Because we were travelling with clients we made a very careful selection of a property with enough space and private areas to accommodate our needs. We based our selection on the descriptions and photo's on the booking.com website. On arrival we were placed in a... More
