I spent my first night in the Garamond building in a one bedroom apartment. The apartment was on the first floor and the glass door with just a simple latch gave me a very uneasy feeling . The carpet near the TV had a large stain but it was the filthy throw pillow that really gave me concerns about the... More

Just what we needed.. Watching the seals jump in and out of the water , near the Yachts , Seeing the big Wheel with the lights on at night, I was in my own world. Just try it. The hospitality is so pleasing , no need to drive to the V & A Mall , take a stroll and exercise... More

It was the very first time for me to travel by myself, so I'm not used to be alone in a hotel. But during my whole stay in the Waterfront Village I felt very secure and comfortable! Everything was perfect: the apartment was clean and beautiful, the location could not be better and the staff of the Waterfront Village was... More

The apartment was based in Carradale building facing the shipyard who was all days grinding the docked ship(s) also on Saturday so very noisy and irritating. I would only recommend it if you are far away from the shipyard since the work starts early and you cannot enjoy the balcony. Kitchen was poorly equipment no tray nor a breadknife available,...

On arrival at the reception desk I was asked for my debit card and passport, which I reluctantly handed over (as it states in the hotel detail that these will be required on check in). These were taken through the back office where they were photocopied I was told and was reassured that this was normal procedure. During my stay,... More

We had a two bedroom apartment which was clean and very roomy. However, it needed some maintenance work, particularly in the bathrooms (broken tiles, sagging basin cabinets, etc). Our combo microwave oven wasn't working. Wifi in the apartment was an additional cost which should really be factored into the cost. There was free wifi in the lobby/front desk area, but... More

We were VERY happy with the location. Short walk to V&A Waterfront, restaurants, shops and attractions. Very safe and secure - locked/controlled access gates, security cameras everywhere and heaps of security personnel. Great to walk back to the apartment at night knowing you were in a secure environment. We had two bookings here with a break while we went on... More

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
