The Waterfront Village 2-BR unit was spacious and well-appointed with full kitchen and washer and dryer. The location is a 10 min walk to the V&A Waterfront shopping area and is very safe. We stayed in Helenslee facing the canal on the first floor. Truly idyllic and peaceful walking out every morning and sitting on the balcony. Gate with security... More

We spent 4 nights here in a 2 bed apartment within the block known as helenslee. Great location within a fenced residential area with 24/7 security. The apartment was big, spacious and airy similar to a quality trendy flat on London docklands. Service from the staff/reception was good and they were helpful. We were self catering and the facilities and... More

We stayed at the Waterfront Village Apartments at the beginning of August. They were clean and extremely spacious. Good location close to the water front made it a ideal base for exploring Cape Town. Stunning views of Table Mountain. It was a shame there was a charge for wifi. Reception staff extremely helpful organising a private peninsula tour. Security was... More

We enjoyed our stay in the Waterfront Village as its proximity to restaurants/shops etc made our evenings easy to arrange – especially nice after very full days exploring Cape Town. The apartment was clean and large with all amenities required should you not want to venture out. One small criticism would be that on the day we arrived, the lady... More

• Disappointing stay • Check in is slow and not very friendly or helpful • After check in they provided me with a piece of paper for registration, they advised me to go around to another building where I will be parking. On arrival there was no one there to meet me, and the security guard assisted me to get... More

Let me start off by saying that we LOVED Cape Town. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Unfortunately our experience with Waterfront Village was less than satisfactory. When we first arrived, we thought the apartments were really nice and modern and especially secure (as you had to pass through multiple security gates that only opened with your key). However, the morning before we... More

So let me start by saying that I booked this 'Hotel' via one of the hotel websites. It was listed as being a hotel despite being apartments which I did not realise....however I can't blame them for how other websites advertise them - it's down to me to research and I can take it up with the website in question....

Dear Mr Tonyc32 Thank you for your comments. We realise that the companies we use are usually more expensive due to the trust we need to have in them as we often transport high profile tenants and public figures. We do sincerely apologise for the aircon noise issue, we do have a highly trained maintenance team that operate 7 day... More

We stayed at the Waterfront Village from the 14th May for four nights. We really enjoyed our time there. The apartment was very nice and comfortable. We had everything we needed for our stay. There was plenty of room to relax. The kitchen was well fitted with all the appliances you would need. Washer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle and a... More

The apartments are gorgeous. We were in Julienne 604. The front had views of the waterfront area and the back had views of table mountain. The units are clean and self serviced. One hitch is the porter.. Not reliable they arrived half an hour late to fetch our bags that too after repeated calls. Also the dryer in the apartment... More
