Just returned from 11 nights in a one-bedroomed Helenslee apartment. The apartment was massive and had everything in it & more (washer, dryer, dishwasher). The housekeeping service was a bit 'hit & miss', but I'm not used to a maid service during self-catering so anything was more than welcome. I have to say that all staff were marvellous (especially Alida...

The accommodation was fantastic , I had two issues with the place. 1. you had to pay for wifi and secondly you had to pay for using the swimming...

Stayed twice in 10 days. Check in area is small and couldn't accommodate our party of 4 checking in with luggage, we had to leave some outside on the sidewalk. Check-in lost my deposit (paid in full) until I provided a copy of on-line receipt. Waited to be shown to room, there was no orientation provided. One staff member took...

We booked a one bedroom apartment on the V & A Waterfront and when arrived were allocated a two bedroomed apartment in the Helenslee block. These apartments overlooked the "island" where there were houses/suites belonging to the One and Only Hotel. The apartment was very clean, a maid came in every day, except Sunday. There was a bit of a...

Spectacular and gives panoramic view of the docks for a wide range of boats. It is replete with a wide choice entertainment and restaurants. As a first time visitor to V&A waterfront I found it absolutely fascinating and would recommend it for anyone who visits CapeTown.

V&A apartments are situated just few minutes walk from the Waterfront square with Cape wheel, shopping mall and plenty of restaurants. Apartments are specious and well equipped. We booked 3 bedroom apartment for 6 people and had everything we needed for 3 night stay. Apartments are in gated community with security. Staying in higher floor offers nice view at the...

Rented an apartment for five nights, staying with my son's family and <1 yr old grandson. Well situated for all top tourist spots. Not the easiest place for using a buggy and the cot rental was on top of an already expensive rental apartment. The cot was not that great so would recommend taking a travel cot. Although there was...

Unlike others we found the check in procedure worked really well and Marco was really welcoming on arrival. The appartment was very spacious and well appointed and what a location. However the appartment was starting to look tired.

As too the plus this accommodation is great for the waterfront only 10 mins walk and feels very secure so no need to get in a car. Compare to local hotels the apartments are good value in my view for couples and even better for larger groups. Very quiet and peaceful. Minus is that interiors are showing their age. Kitchen...

We stayed for 6 nights in our apartment in the Helenlees Block (arranged via Trailfinders Belfast). Checking in is never easy, especially after a 12 hour flight from London, but we were in our rooms after a couple of hours. Front of house staff were helpful especially Thiembe and Messi. Our apartment was cleaned daily except Sunday, which we knew...
