I stayed in this apartment for 4 days and paid a bill over the password protected wifi. The next day my card information was stolen and used in several stores around the waterfront. I was left without a credit card for the rest of the trip. The apartment is nice, but the WIFI package is limited and you have to... More

We stayed in the two bedroom luxury apartment in Juliette building for three nights. Excellent apartment and location overlooking the canal from sixth floor. The balcony was huge and was with swimming pool! V&A waterfront was just walking distance and hence close to all activity and food! Very convenient location for couples with kids! Security was also very good and... More

Stayed here recently for 5 nights at the start of a 17 day Garden Route Tour. We were in the Penrith Block 001 on the ground floor. Check in was smooth as silk with great service. Free Wi-Fi in the reception area but you have to pay about £10 for 1GB within the confines of the apartment, that was fine... More

A short stroll to all the attractions, restaurants and shopping of the V&A and very close to where the red bus departs from for sighsteeing. I was a little nervous as I... More

Having read some of the recent reviews I think that the comments about service must have been taken on board. We received excellent service and friendly assistance. Particularly from rudolph, who went the extra mile by driving us to a tour bus pick up point as we had just missed the nearby one. He also stopped on the way so... More

We began holiday here and found the apartment generally well provided and an excellent location. The reception and general service however was unfriendly and grabbing. We arrived from the airport tired and grubby to be told our apartment wasn't ready. We were given no map or clue on the area, and eventually allowed to park our car. Cleaning was hit... More

We did a taxi request for one morning and the person had no clue about it. Again an obvious lack of process to log, follow up and... More

We rented a 2 bedroom apartment which was roomy, well maintained, well equipped and had a lovely view over the canals. It's is beautifully situated for the harbour and that is very convenient. Dishwasher tablets, washing machine liquid, coffee, tea etc all provided. Car park space was also available. The only negative was the tortuous security procedures at check in,... More
