We had been spending many weeks along the Garden Route staying at superb guest houses rather than the impersonal hotels one often finds these days.
We opted for self catering so we were not bound to any time scales for eating.
We rented a ground floor apartment so we could walk straight out onto one of the canals that run around the property.
On arrival we were early which meant we could not check in but we were able to park our car securely and walk down to the actual Waterfront itself.
The apartment was spacious and had one en suite and one family bathroom, a large lounge, kitchen and terrace. The furnishings were adequate.
The air conditioning did not work nor did the heating and as it was really winter time the apartment was quite cold. After a lot of chasing we managed to get some electric heaters and extra blankets which solved the problem.
This was not 5 star accommodation but what it lacks in quality is made up for by the very convenient location and ease of getting out onto the Victoria Waterfront itself which is full of restaurants and night life in addition to masses of shopping and craft outlets.
