I stayed in the Waterfont Village in January 2015, we were a party of eight and had two apartments in Kylemore B Building. The accommodation was of an extremely high standard and the small niggles we had were fixed promptly and efficiently. The complex has a very high security level with staff controlled entrance at the main gate and at... More

Waterfront Village Apartments are ideally located near the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. You can walk to many shops, markets, and restaurants. Apartment was adequate. Pro's: Views of Table Mountain and V&A Waterfront. Location. Walkable neighborhood. Washer and Dryer. Kitchen. Con's: The check in was not a fun process. The front desk manager wasn't friendly and unaccommodating. We'd requested a different... More

Apartment is spacious and well equipped, we chose this apartment b/c it had a washing machine and dryer,... More

We booked a luxury 1 bed apartment for the final leg of our honeymoon after originally staying here in 2013. Check in was fairly painless and we were showed to our apartment in bannockburn. There was NOTHING luxury about this apartment. We put in an official complaint to reception as the apartment was nothing like what they advertise on their... More

An ideal safe and secure place to stay in Cape Town. Well equipped and furnished with everything we needed. Ideally located for shops, restaurants and sightseeing Only downside was we arrived early morning and had to wait until the afternoon to check in.

Whilst the apartment are really beautiful and the location is great, what really lets these apartments down is the staff and the management. I regularly travel to CT for business and assumed this would be a great home away from home but sadly the staff were really quite rude and the management has no clue what is going on. You... More

We stayed in Penrith apartment early November. The apartment was very nice with good views of the Marina unfortunately our whole holiday was ruined as we had cash stolen from the apartment safe. This is obviously an inside job and the management must know about it, but Don't seem to do anything to stop it. We had £100 and some... More
