Stayed here with my Fiancee for 5 days recently. We checked in late and used the electronic check in via a letter given to us by the security guard as there is no reception after a certain hour. We were allocated a parking spot for our rental car which was nice. We had a studio apartment, which was a good...

We booked this through Trailfinders. Great place with lovely spacious rooms (an appartment really with lounge open-dining kitchen area. Huge bed, big ensuite bathroom & a separate guest toilet. The staff were friendly & helpful. You have you own balcony with stunning views of Camps Bay & Lions Head mountain. There's also a lovely infinity pool. Downsides - the Wifi...

Just the right tonic after a hard days work.. Ideal to come home to after work or even as a greta holiday venue. Close to all the major attractions and always against the tradfiic, the accomodation is luxurious and spacious. Really special and affordable.

Stayed at The Crystal Apartments in Camps Bay, Cape Town. The apartment is well appointed and conveniently located close to beaches and restaurants. We absolutely loved the fantastic view. I could sit on that veranda for a week and not get tired of the view. I would recommend that you use a taxi once you have parked your car in...

we were very impressed with our apartment 201 and especially the view over camps bay. Although the reception is in the underground garage and a bit of a hassle to get to the staff were very helpful.

To make it short I can confirm the lack of service and attention at that place. I had the same experience with the reception. To stay and sleep there was not vet pleasant especially if you look what they charge. - Duvets are upside down - cleaning cloth lays for the whole duration on the lounges chair ( no wonder...

We stayed here for one night and had a pretty badly serviced experience. The reception closes at 6 and as our flight got in after this we had to find the caretaker to get keys. There is no wifi in the room. You can pay (expensively) for some But it was not working so we had an unpleasant 30 mins...

Nicely tucked up the hillside away from hustle and bustle. We has one bedroom luxury apartment on ground floor which meant we had our own outdoor space to sit down and soak of the sun on the shared lawn with a small private patio. Apartment was very comfy and decorated well. The bed was incredibly comfy. Good secure parking. Only...
