I had the oppotunity of spending a night at the PH North Wharf during September 2008 and as a Capetonian I impressed...
I am a wheelchair user and wasn't to sure what to expect. I was expecting the worst but was super impressed with the ease of access, all the way from the underground car park garage, to the foyer and up to the room.
I stayed in Room 109, why they call it a room I'm not sure...
It's a 1 bedroomed apartment, with it's own fully equipped kitchen (fridge, oven, stove top, microwave, dishwasher, washer/tumbel dryer and all the necessary pots and pans you might need), bathroom with roll in shower (shower has a height adjustable hand held shower head and a fold down shower bench) with the much needed grab rails in the shower and by the toilet. Dining area and lounge. Apartment 109 had 2 tv's in it (1 in the lounge & 1 in the bedroom), as well as a DVD player, laptop work area.
The only problem which as a wheelchair user you might encounter is the kitchen space. The entrance into the kitchen is a bit narrow and there's no space to turn around, so you go in forwards and you have to reverse out.
The bedroom has enough space for one to enter the bed from either side. I did find that the bed was a bit high but I managed fine and slept well.
Room service was quick and the food was good!
Staff friendly and willing to help.
