“Great Apartment, Wonderful Waterfront Location Near Resturants and Shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Lawhill Luxury Apartments could not be more perfect for size, location, convenience and for a touch of luxury. And best for last, the price is more reasonable than for similar luxury hotels. The apartments come with single, double or triple master bedrooms, a large living room area, a decent dining area and an ample kitchen with many amenities including washing machine and dryer. The apartments also have large, wide balconies overlooking Cape Town's inner harbor. And to top off the experience, the staff and service are first class..........and friendly. The Wow factor is there.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the inner harbor are sunny, quiet and have great views.

Family of five stayed in the 3 roomed penhouse apartment. The design of the apartments, the furniture and the utensils are outstanding. The views are marvellous. Two bedrooms and the living room open onto a lovely patio with a pool. Well cleaned and serviced.
It is close to the shops on the waterfront but you have to wlak through some quiet areas which would be a concern at night. Next to the One and Only hotel so the facilities there are available too.
Only downside is the internet. It is ABYSMAL. The speed was 0.25 down and 0.15 up Mbps. Yes those numbers are correct. Also there is a fiddly log-in process and servers going down frequently.
Didnt use it but the communal pool is very small, really a plunge pool.
Management at the hotel is VERY willing but not expereinced. 5 people receivedone set of keys at check-in. Broken shower door took two days to be removed.

Room Tip: The penthouse 3 bedroomed apartment is awesome

My reservation was lost through no fault of the staff. I was upgraded to a three bedroom at no extra charge. I would estimate the sq. footage at 1650 sq. feet with open spaces and modern appliances and bathroom fixtures.
Location was excellent with a ten minute walk to the V. & A. Waterfront with all of the restaurants etc.
The staff was most eager to make my stay as pleasant as possible. I would recommend this establishment with no reservations.
Why stay in a motel room?

Room Tip: Very quiet so a lower level is helpful when leaving your apartment.

Staying at Lawhill is just like chilling out at the home of a rich relative. In the two-bedroomed apartment the bed was comfortably firm with crisp linen and a sumptuous duvet just like my bed is at home.
Being fussy about what I eat, "self-catering but serviced" is the way to go for me. Woolies was close by and my husband and I put the oven to good use. The flat was always beautifully cleaned while we were out and I also appreciated the washing machine and tumbler drier in the kitchen. There were two flatscreen TVs (a great marriage saver) and free wi-fi, even accessed from the balcony, which had a lovely view over the canals.
Breakfast at the neighbouring One&Only hotel was overpriced and we found much better value at the V&A Precinct. Incidentally the spa at One&Only was totally overbooked. We couldn't get a treatment for love or money so perhaps they need to hire more staff.
However you can get a gr8 shoulder massage at the nearbyV&A craft market much cheaper.
We found our Lawhill apartment to be tremendous value for money and couldn't wait to come "home" from an outing so we could just enjoy having the place to ourselves ...
Lawhill is hard to find if you don't know where it is – and also not available on our GPS for some reason – but I can totally recommend it and hope to return one day ...

Room Tip: The views over the canal are the best as shown by the picture taken from the balcony of our Lawhill...

Recently I had the opportunity to stay 3 nights at the Lawhill. Hands down the best hotel I have ever stayed at. Keep in mind I travel quite a bit.
Upon arriving to the facility, we had to go through security at the main gate of the Marina. After clearing security, we proceeded to the actual Lawhill buildings within the Marina. The front desk staff greeted us at the entrance and were very helpful with the large number of bags. We were then checked in and taken to our hotel room/apartment.
My first impression was - WOAH!!! The room, the furnishings, the bathroom, the views etc all were absolutely amazing. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
The apartment is great for those who are visiting with friends or family but want to have multiple rooms/bathrooms. The kitchen was great when we felt like making something or just eating in. The living room and balcony were very comfortable and great for just hanging out with friends/family. The apartment has all conveniences and comforts that one would have within their room but with a lot more luxury.
Lawhill is located within the Marina community close to the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. The location of the property allowed me to enjoy many wonderful meals at the One and Only Cape Town (right next door) and at the wonderful restaurants on the V&A Waterfront. Many tourist attractions are within walking distance or not too far by cab.
I will definitely stay here when I visit Cape Town again and will recommend the place to all friends and family visiting Cape Town.

We are currently staying at lawhill room 503 apartment B.. Room is clean and fantastic with all the kitchen washing machine.. Room 503 is closest to v&a waterfront next to one and only hotel and two ocean aquarium. The view from balcony is superb .. The whole place is very secured and well managed ..

The walk to v&a waterfront takes approx 10 minutes but we felt safe the whole time but it gets quiet in the evening so I suggest to get back before dark.. For food, if you can order in from mr delivery and they have everything from asian to western food ( very efficient if you dont feel like going out at night) . Bfast is shared with one and only hotel but price is rand190 which I think a little steep.. So get some groceries and cook a home made bfast ...

Water heater is turned off between 11am till 5 pm .. And water gets cold unless you ask maintenance to turn on.. Reception very very friendly and they can organize tours and transfer to anywhere and safe..

Overall a good stay and would return here again
