We stayed in a lovely four bed roomed apartment for three nights. A great location within easy walking distance of waterfront shops, restaurants and bars. Good security entering and exiting apartment complex. I would like to suggest that guests are provided with a welcome pack on arrival. We arrived late at night and had to go to nearest garage to...

Had a 3 bedroomed apartment for 7 nights. It was very spacious, clean, well equipped, great views from the balcony - the Waterfront - and the back rooms - Table Mountain! - parking (free) in the basement and just about the perfect location in Cape Town with about a 5/10 minute walk to the heart of the Waterfront. The only... More

The bed was a few inches from the floor and v awkward to get out of! Overall it was a bit dirty - the rug in the lounge looked like it had been... More

We stayed for 3 nights; wish it had been longer. We were at the nearest end to V&A shopping complex, a healthy 10 minute walk. Likewise, lunch & exploring most of Cape Town on foot is possible too. But having requested a sunny balcony we ended up with one designed to receive minimum sun and our room 101 (yes, honestly)... More

This was my 5th or 6th stay in these appartments. Sometimes you are lucky (like Palgrave) and sometimes not (like Atmoore). When you stay at Palgrave you have a beautiful view, while you have kind of view from Atmoore, but it is a bit strange. At the latter apartment, we got a strange triangular appartment, where the terrace was the... More

We had booked so we thought a luxury apartment for 3 nights at the end of our stay in South Africa. We were shown to a studio apartment which was anything but luxurious and not what we were expecting, we made the long walk back to reception to ask for another apartment that was more in keeping with what we...

We booked this at the suggestion of Traifinders and it was a really good choice, especially if you have a car as you get free underground car parking. The apartments are really comfortable and well-equipped, and have everything you need. As it had a decent kitchen we decided to eat in most evenings (we'd had a month of eating in... More

The apartment (J507) was well equipped, spacious and had a balcony with an excellent view. The complex was well managed and secure. BUT the fixtures and fittings, both inside and on the balcony, were far from luxurious and some were stained. We brought these shortcomings to the management's attention: they explained that the apartment was privately owned but let by... More

We rented a super one bed apartment in waterside village in the V &A waterfront, large bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, luxury kitchen with all the right stuff, oven, hob, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Serviced everyday by housekeeping, so you could just do your own thing, we lunched out and then most evenings bought back a simple meal with a... More
