Whilst the apartment are really beautiful and the location is great, what really lets these apartments down is the staff and the management. I regularly travel to CT for business and assumed this would be a great home away from home but sadly the staff were really quite rude and the management has no clue what is going on. You... More

We stayed in Penrith apartment early November. The apartment was very nice with good views of the Marina unfortunately our whole holiday was ruined as we had cash stolen from the apartment safe. This is obviously an inside job and the management must know about it, but Don't seem to do anything to stop it. We had £100 and some... More

The apartment was very nice and very handy to get to the V & A Waterfront. The supermarket was a short walk away. The apartment was well equipped but problem with tv and satellite. The tv n bedroom was linked to the one in the lounge and if you used the wrong control then you lost the lot. The WiFi... More

We perhaps made the mistake of coming to this apartment after spending a night at the Taj Hotel in Cape Town so to be honest we were a bit disappointed when we saw it. However, unlike some other reviewers we didn't have to spend too long going through the check in, possibly because it wasn't very busy at the time... More

I stayed in this apartment for 4 days and paid a bill over the password protected wifi. The next day my card information was stolen and used in several stores around the waterfront. I was left without a credit card for the rest of the trip. The apartment is nice, but the WIFI package is limited and you have to... More

We stayed in the two bedroom luxury apartment in Juliette building for three nights. Excellent apartment and location overlooking the canal from sixth floor. The balcony was huge and was with swimming pool! V&A waterfront was just walking distance and hence close to all activity and food! Very convenient location for couples with kids! Security was also very good and... More

Stayed here recently for 5 nights at the start of a 17 day Garden Route Tour. We were in the Penrith Block 001 on the ground floor. Check in was smooth as silk with great service. Free Wi-Fi in the reception area but you have to pay about £10 for 1GB within the confines of the apartment, that was fine... More

My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment in the waterfront village for the first leg of our honeymoon. Location wise, you just cant beat it. A short stroll to all the attractions, restaurants and shopping of the V&A and very close to where the red bus departs from for sighsteeing. I was a little nervous as I... More
