Superb option if you are looking for self-catering, although being so close to the Waterfront very easy also to eat out. We had a 2 bedroomed apartment that had all you needed for a very comfortable stay, with a beautiful view over the canals. Being so close to the Waterfront made life very easy. The unit had 2 underground parking... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom luxurious apartment. We were really impressed by the large apartment (in Kylemore B block) and all the facilities it had to offer - 2 bathrooms (incl. huge bath), large dining area and lounge, all cooking facilities, dishwasher, washing machine & drier, fridge/freezer, microwave, large TV etc. Check in was smooth...

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment and we're delighted with its location, size and facilities. It had a dishwasher,fridge and even a washing machine and tumble drier. The location was brilliant for access to V&A waterfront, tours etc. and the apartment was clean, and very comfortable with stunning views. The underground parking was really handy and the area felt very... More

Before you read the rest of the review, we are not the "this is terrible" sort of reviewers. Unfortunately, the service we received at Waterfront Village did not live up to the standards we were used to from South Africa on our Honeymoon. On arrival it was clear that our apartment was not clean. There were crumbs in the living... More

The location is splendid and Apartments vary widely I understand but ours was super. The only issue was a blocked shower drain which caused some minor flooding. Very (perhaps overly) secure, convenient, clean, pleasant employees in the main, handy underground parking, perfect location for city's, Robben Island, V&A, great views of Table Mountain. On arrival the service was lazy and... More

Arrived to a very chaotic reception area with people unpacking and repacking suitcases! Apartment was very luxurious with stunning view. Wifi was down for the duration of our stay. Proximity to the V&A waterfront is good. Easy walk. One gate closer than the main gate. Very peaceful and spotlessly clean surrounds.

We stayed for 4 nights in an apartment which was comfortable and clean but the development and the area as a whole is soulless and lacking in charm. The wifi in the apartment was broken during the entire stay and the reception didn't seem to do anything to remedy the problem except provide wifi access at the reception office which... More

I am a regular visitor to Waterfront but recently was greeted by a miserable looking face behind the bar not the usual happy face I am used to at this establishment the gentlemen serving had grey hair the rest of the staff were happy and especially the Manageress Sharon who is always very good and courteous

We rented a three bedroom apartment for four nights. The location is excellent - a short walk to the V&A waterfront with its bustling life. It was billed as 5*. Don't agree with that rating but comfortable nonetheless. Great views of both Table Mountain and the marina/dockyard. Small complaint. It was hard to find the check in office and the... More

I must say that the location of the property is very good, with walking distance to the main attraction area at the water front which is extremely lively with tonnes of restaurants, and a mall. We took the three bedroom apartment and was mesmerized with the view of the city. The room was spacious. The only thing i was disappointed... More
