“A home away from home in a fantastic and safe location”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

The Waterfront Village was absolutely brilliant when we stayed there recently. It wasn't the cheapest accomodation, but well worth it if you can afford it, will give you that home away from home feeling - if you were ever lucky enough to have this kind of home! The apartments were huge and I think they all have balconies overlooking either the Waterfront or the mountain. The kitchens are very well equipped meaning you can save yourself some money by cooking proper meals in rather than going out everynight. On a map the complex looks a bit of a walk from the V & A, but in reality is right next to it so very convenient. The security is also very good and you feel very safe there, which wasn't the case in some parts of Cape Town we visited. Overall, would highly recommend it.

This is the 3rd time that I stay here. The other times we had large and spacious apartments, so we were a bit disappointed, when we this time got an appartment half of the size and a balcony without sun. However, it still is well equipped and has a convenient position. It is extremely quiet during the night and it is easy to get wherever you want in Cape Town.The staff is very friendly and the rooms are cleaned minutely every day. Our next stay therefore is booked already.

Dear SnailNorway

Thank you for your review. As all the apartment differ from one another, you can request a spesific apartment when enquiring for a future booking, you can also ask the reservationist to assist by looking on your booking history, if you can't remember the specific apartment number.

We would also like to thank you for complimenting the staff of the Waterfront Village.

Kind regards

This place was recommended to me by my colleagues. At first i was a bit sceptical because i already had a place where i usually stayed at whenever i'm in Cape Town, and that's a lot! in my line of work i travel atleast every month for a week to keep therefore i needed a place that was home away from home and this was it!!

From the one on one attention i received from the staff to them organizing anything i needed for my stay, it eneded up being better than being home! This place is situated at the best location, with the view of the Ocean and the Table Mountain (new 7 wonders of Nature), What more can you ask for?!

The apartment was clean, spacious and very well decorated, the security superb, always friendly! The parking was a bit tricky but don't let that be a problem as one of the staff can escort you to your parking and after that, you won''t get confused as to which parking is yours.

If you are looking for the best accomodation for your holiday with or without your family, this will be the best place! I'm always sad to leave, honestly!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent, no need to worry about that! You may want to ask for top floors as they wil...

We stayed in 2x2 bedroom apartments. Altmore 103 and Bannockburn 004. Comfortable, clean and well equipped. We were welcomed by very friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us. Security staff that were sharp and on the ball, but greeted us with a friendly smile each time they saw us. Immaculate waterways and flowerbeds and an 5 mins walk to all the restaurants etc.
Would prefer to stay here than in a hotel. Maids came in every day and all was tidied and cleaned for our return. Would stay here again.
