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....

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

We stayed 5 nights here in a very comfortable apartment with easy access to the V&A Waterfront and its great selection of restaurants. After booking, we read some negative reviews about laborious checking in procedures and having to hang around for security pass photos to be taken. We had none of that, check in was quick and easy with no... More

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and was amazed with the amount of space. Central heating, well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds were very welcome. Very central with waterfront a short walk away. Security and privacy very good. Recommending to all our friends!

We stayed at Waterfront Village – in Carradale 13th – 23rd April, a family of 2 adults and our 15 year old daughter Emily, in a 2 bedroomed 1st floor apartment. From the minute we arrived the staff could not have been more disinterested. The girl on reception hardly looked up at all as we registered. Zelda took us in... More

We (3 couples in our fifties) stayed in a third floor 3 bed apartment. Clean and serviced well but it's dated and the hot tub had some kind of green slime on it. No wifi. Limited view, the upper floors may be better. V good restaurants with great food around the clock tower (5 min walk), the restaurants in a... More

The flat we stayed in had a fantastic view and could be seen as luxurious, but only if you ignored the various items that needed fixing and maintenance. The flat was starting to get tacky. The jacuzzi wasn't working, the sliding shutters in both bedrooms were broken, the seater couch outside was broken, the carpets were dirty, the window in... More

We hired two apartments for a week over Christmas in the 'F' block which overlooks the canal. By far the best feature of these apartments is being able to walk to the Waterfront at a time of year when parking in the area is impossible. Both apartments were clean and well equipped with all of the basics (we managed Christmas... More
