Check in wasn't as bad as expected, parking near to the offices was not easy as cars have to have someone sitting in them and the businesses along the road came out and were quite rude about their spaces , but then I guess it happens all the time. We then had to drive round to the underground parking but... More

Walking distance of the restaurants and bars and a well appointed apartment. Self catering but could not find many handy supermarkets etc so ate out. A bit impersonal but fine if you want to be on your own or not with many people. Wifi in reception but have to pay in rooms - could not get that to work anyway!... More

Location could not be better - minutes from all the bars, shops, restaurants etc of waterfront. We had an apartment looking out over the waterfront at the front and from the back balcony the view was Table Mountain. It was a very spacious 3 bedroom apartment - room number was Pembroke 302. It was very well fitted out. I could... More

This complex of both owned and rented condos has a lot going for it. Our place was spacious, had all the self-catering equipment you would need including fridge, freezer, microwave and oven/hob. Importantly it has a washing machine and a drier tucked away behind a door. There were two TVs both with cable and HDMI input. A large furnished balcony... More

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

excellent location beautiful surroundings - like a slice of paradise - so what was wrong? the apartment while in a perfect position looked tired and plain . 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...
