Fed up with hotels for long stays, we opted for an apartment at The Gables. The location is close enough to the centre of Westlands to walk there. But there are usually taxis almost outside the apartments. Security is good. Guards at the gate24/7. The apartment was spacious. We had a two room apartment. The beds were comfortable and the housekeeping service brisk and thorough. The living room had the kitchen as part of it, but the room was large enough that this didn't cause a problem. The furniture was comfy and reasonably modern. There were plenty of kitchen utensils and anything needed, such as a bigger cooking pot, was soon provided. The TV had the basic satellite channels, but the wifi in our apartment sometimes struggled. Would we go back - yes.

The Gables is safe, secure and comfortable accommodation within easy reach of local shops and restaurants. It is an ideal place to stay for a week, a month or more. Nice little pool within a shaded courtyard allowing respite from the heat on warm days. Friendly and courteous staff.

Very cozy apartments in a serene environment. Once you are in, you don't want to leave, except to the in-house spa! The relaxed ambiance at The Gables is even better now with the introduction of a coffee shop and salon. The staff are friendly and offer very professional service. It's always a joy to be at The Gables!

I stayed with my wife at the Gables on vacation, the grounds are beautiful, the staff are really friendly and the management really took care of us and our many guests and late night arrivals. Cleanness was overal well maintained the housekeepers were a delight the security staff were superb and very helpful. Unfortunately the beds were uncomfortable and unusually low in height but we managed it. and we had a minor problem with ants in the kitchen. Overall If your looking for a very secure, reliable, easy accessible from the town, which is extremely competitively affordable; then look no further then The Gables Apartments.

Dear Lloyd K, Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Gables and highly recommend us to your friends and family. We always encourage our guests to give us feedback during their actual stay if they are unhappy with anything. If you had told Management about your beds , we would have been more than happy to change them for you. Your happiness and comfort is our number one priority. Living in the tropics, ants may decide to feast on any food left in the kitchen if the windows are left open, but we quickly and effectively deal with any unwanted guests :) Thanks again and we look forward to hosting you and your friends again! Warm Regards The Management

When I left Gables , I was sad. I will really miss this place. The people here are so nice and professional in everything they do. Room service is great , the staff are all friendly and read to help. The gym experience at Kings was great as Gym instructors read to help all the time. The environment is quite and very peaceful for ideal stay. And in case you need help from the management the response and turn around time is perfect. You will never be disappointed to stay with Gables, I highly recommend this place
