Have stayed here before and reception wasn't brilliant. This time very different staff in reception were excellent and very helpful. You can if you ask nicely leave your bags if you have to check out before your transfer arrives. You need to purchase WiFi from reception. Very secure, clean and spacious. Serviced apartment. Lots of eateries although most not open...

We stayed for 4 nights and had a lovely apartment on top floor. Had a nice view of the V & A Harbour and One & Only Hotel. It's very conveniently located and a secure parking place is also allocated. Very quiet and modern place with AC, kitchen was equipped with the essentials, bathrooms with bathtub and walk-in showers, both...

I have just stayed in the Waterfront Village as one of a group. We should have realised all was not as it should be when we first arrived, reception was full and the process of checking in and obtaining keys and security passes was chaotic and time consuming to put it mildly. We were shown to an apartment that was...

I arrived with a party of 8 of us on 13/11/2016 as we were on a Golfing holiday for one week. When we initially arrived our apartments were not ready so as we were playing golf that day we were all forced to get changed in a small room in the reception area, not a good start. On arriving back...

We stayed here two nights and had a reasonable apartment. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a dedicated parking place close to the apartment. Because these apartments are privately owned there are quirky aspects of them. For example, the lights in the kitchen area were on a dimmer control but not the sitting or dining area....

We booked 2 apartments and one of them turned out to be the dreaded A202 (which I discovered only after trawling the reviews here). A202 is really a poor distant Cousin when compared to the typical waterfront apartments here. Well, the shower handle in the bathroom came off when we tried to turn on the water. The shower head had...

Our three weeks in South Africa climaxed in our week in this self-catering accommodation. We had a second floor two-bedroom apartment overlooking the marina. The apartment was spacious and very well furnished and kitted out with a huge veranda complete with a dining table for 6 and a couple of recliners. The kitchen had all the accessories imaginable and a...

After reading mixed reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. I stayed in a 2 bed, 2 bath with my husband and 12 year old son for a weeks vacation. We arrived early in the morning after 25 hours of travel and so I had requested, and even offerd to pay for an early check in, but we didn't get...

Check in was a bit hit and miss but they did take our luggage round to the apartment and then came back and collect us.

Stayed here for 5 nights. Very nicely appointed apartment. Situated alongside the canal. Quiet location with plenty of security. Allocated parking space. WiFi free at reception and available in the apartment for a fee. Towels changed daily. Short walk to V&A waterfront where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. Would stay here again
