4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our apartment was stunning - beautifully presented with views across the water. Staff on reception were lovely and helpful (Nicola deserves a special mention), but I felt so sorry for those staff having to deal with the wifi questions! Everyone is told there is wifi and heads back to their room armed with the code. Ours never worked (despite visits... More

apartment was nice and the view was amazing, near to the Victoria waterfront mall which open until late time, Price was expansive and no breakfast included, front disc some of them was helpful and the rest was ignoring our calls, in my next visit I will not stay there.

This is a great location as many others have said, but the problems began when we arrived and no one was at the main office (supposedly open 24/7) for check in. They had been told of our late arrival but we still had to wait 1/2 hour for someone to show up. We had 2 apartments for our group. Ours... More

We paid more for staying here as it sold itself as luxury apartments. Upon arriving we were pleased as was set in a secure complex near the v&a amenities. However during our 4 night stay we had various minor (but not consistent with price nor 'luxury' billing). No hand towels for 3/4 days. Bath towels were threadbare. Pillowcases stained or... More

We had a fabulous two bedroom apartment in the marina area. The apartment was very spacious and finished to a high standard. The location is perfect for the V&A shops and restaurants. No more than 6-7 minute walk. Security was very evident and we felt very safe. The downsides: Our apartment wasn't that clean (it wasn't dirty but I expect... More

I had mixed feelings about this place from the other trip advisor reviews, however, it turned out the be a very nice value for our family of 5. The location is realistically about 10 minute walk to the V&A waterfront shopping center or aquarium. There is no convenient store or restaurant around the area that is easily accessible. At night,... More

We stayed for four nights and had a great one bedroom apartment in the Pembroke building. We arrived by taxi from the airport (cost about £20) and were met by very helpful reception staff who checked us in, provided us with a guide, and escorted us to our block. The area is in the V&A Waterfront and is very safe... More

We stayed here in March. The reception is located in another building and then they drive you to the Village. We had a 2 bedroom - 2 bathroom apartment with a lovely patio. The security is very good so we felt very safe. The apartment was very clean but we found some maintenance issues. The bath in the second bathroom... More

Loved the location ! I could see table mountian from my room! Lots to do , lots of food choices. Great local arts to buy. Easy drive to many other locations, like Boulders beach to see penguins! Wine country was so pretty. Nothing like California wine county. First time in South Africa loved it.
