We stayed on the 5th floor of Kylemore A ... brilliant! The whole place is itself very secure, and is in a safe part of the city - walking distance to lots of attractions and the sighseeing bus. Very friendly staff. Clean and well furnished apartment, with all key facilities. Lovely views of the sunrise over the harbour!

I stayed at the Village & life Waterfront Apartment with my 2 children aged, 4 and 7 and my sister with her son of 8. What an amazing place for a family. We stayed in a Superior 2 bedroom apartment Parergon 201 that had a wonderful view of the V&A and the Yachts in the Marina. The apartment was very... More

We had a spacious 2 bed apartment in 'Ellesmere' building - just right for a couple & single friend. Lovely view & a very short walk round the marina to the extensive amenities of the waterfront. A longer walk takes you to the centre of the city. The area is friendly & laid back - couldn't be better. Staff so... More

This was a very nice alternative to one of the big hotels at the waterfront, 5 minute walk from the aquarium/sightseeing bus and another 5 mins to the main hub of the waterfront. The waterfront was a great place to stay and felt very safe all day and night The staff were very helpful, I particular Vernon, who checked us... More

Waterfront Village Apartments is an excellent location for a longer stay in Cape Town. We stayed 5 nights in a three bedroom apartment. The location is perfect for easy access to the multitude of restaurants around the V&A Waterfront....all in walking distance. It's also only a 15 - 20 minute walk to central Cape Town if you are feeling adventurous.... More

Loved the place that we stayed in, the facilities, the cleanliness, the kitchen, the access to the areas close by, was just perfect to begin our South African holiday. The walk around the canal and seeing the birds, seals (yes we saw them), the canoes, boat races, and the boats made for a lovely view. The table mountains can be... More

Had a family stay of 4 nights in Bannockburn, 3 bed apartment and would have no hesitation in staying again and recommending. Apartment fixtures and fittings were clean and met every expectation that we had, remembering that 5 star and self-catering rarely go together. All appliances worked well and for a family, the ability to do washing and have a... More

Spent five nights at this complex. Staff were brilliant throughout and the location is great - although the waterfront is undergoing lots of development at the moment so there is a lot of building going on. Property we stayed in (bannockburn) felt a little 'tired' with the standard of decoration leaving a little to be desired and air con not... More

I am South African and stayed here with my husband in June 2014 and had a great apartment. I flew in to CT with three Australian friends. The book in was a fiasco. After 45 mins they finally had us booked into three apartments and the Manager took us by car to the apartments with our luggage. The car broke... More
