We stayed at the Waterfront Village as the first stop on our honeymoon at the start of October 2016. Although we didn't rate the centre of Cape Town itself the waterfront was lovely and the apartments pleasant and well located. Unfortunately, the day before we left, a large sum of money (more than £300) was stolen from our room when...

We had a huge apartment with a terrace overlooking the canal that runs through the village.We didn't self cater but there was plenty of equipment there if we had wanted to. It was serviced every day and was very clean and tidy. The security to get in and out of the apartments is very thorough which is an added bonus....

The apartments are in a gated complex with underground parking. Felt very safe and nice walk to the restaurants at the waterfront. The apartment itself was large and nice to have the washing machine. A few niggles; you have to pay for wifi but need a code. We asked reception for this but they never got back to us. The...

We were 2 females travelling to SA for the first time and this property was perfect for getting around the waterfront district and a lovely place to come home to after a days tour. THe staff were very accommodating even escorting us to the local gas station at 1:00 in the morning to get something to munch on after our...

This was our first stop on our trip to South Africa. The apartment was lovely, tidy and bathrooms were very clean. The apartment was situated in a great location with only a 5 minute walk down to the waterfront and a 5 minute taxi/20 minute walk into the centre of Cape Town. Felt very safe and all staff were very...

These apartments are very well equipped and clean, and in a very handy and attractive location for the attractions of the waterfront. However the checkin is a long process because of getting all the security passes and it is very disappointing that there is no free wifi in the apartments and it is very expensive for the daily rate and...

Just spent four nights in a well appointed apartment at the Waterfront Village in Cape Town. Great to walk down to the waterfront where there are lots of restaurants and just a short taxi ride into the city. Lovely apartment - remember to take South African plug sockets with you as they are very different to all the other converter...

Just spent 6 days at the waterfront village and overall our stay was pretty good. We had a one bedroom apartment in Kylemore A. It was nice to have a bit more room than a typical hotel room with the advantage of a galley style kitchen, large living room and a large balcony overlooking the canal. After spending a week...

We have just returned from a holiday in Cape Town and stayed in these apartments for 4 nights. Our first apartment was very smart, good wifi and air conditioned, with nice views. Unfortunately despite booking months in advance there were only double beds and we have 3 children who needed to be split up to sleep! I rang at 7.15...
