“Fantastic Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

We stayed here for a week and the apartment was fantastic, we had a view of the harbour to the front and of Table Mountain to the side, the property was beautifully furnished, the beds are incredibly comfortable and the security is fantastic, the apartment is also very well located if you wish to walk to the waterfront and we did so, even in the evenings. The staff were very helpful and made restaurant recommendations and reservations and arranged our trip up Table Mountain - all in all a lovely stay and we were sad to leave

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

We stayed for 2 nights as a family of 6 recently . We had booked a standard 3-bed apartment, but got upgraded. The apartment was huge and very impressive. It was furnished very well and linen and toiletries were good.

The block is in a good location, and appears very safe. There is a 24hr reception and all the staff we encountered were very helpful
Make sure you have the right directions. I initially tried to follow Google Maps, which took me to the wrong place. There is also secure underground parking.

No complaints we would happily go again ...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

The staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful and it had a lovely view, however the apartment itself was not properly cleaned. Fish moths came out from under appliances, the tips of the knives were broken, once the apartment was cleaned by the staff, some of the utensils went missing. There were no basic condiments such as olive oil. Washing powder for the washing machine had to be bought separately and the machine was not user friendly and took over an hour to wash the clothes. The air-con didn't work in the master bedroom, despite complaints, nothing was done to fix it. Since it is located near the waterfront, it's not the quietest place to stay.

Stayed here for a week mid November in a one bedroom apartment on the second floor. A great apartment, well appointed, clean and well maintained. The staff we delightful - helpful and delightful and could not do enough to help out. We took advantage of asking Lawhill to arrange our airport transfer which was very reasonably priced and efficient. The location is perfect - access via secure key to the walkway past the One and Only hotel right into the heart of the V and A Waterfront. The hop-on hop-off bus and associated canal boat and the aquarium are minutes away, the main set of craft workshops, shops and restaurants a few minutes further away. Plenty to do in the day and at night and all within a short walking distance, with the apartments being just far enough away to ensure a peaceful night's sleep.

The apartment property is located directly at the VA Waterfront. Within 5 minutes walking distance you can find everything you need or want to do (restaurants, shopping & several attractions). The apartments are situated within a safe and secure marina residential area next to the One&Only-Hotel.

Our apartment (103) was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. WiFi-access is complementary and works well and a special price to the One&Only-breakfast-buffet is offered.

The reception staff is very helpful in dealing with all kinds of requests (airport transfers, restaurant reservations, private sightseeing tours etc.) and the service attitude is outstanding.

If I return to Capetown again I will definitely stay at Lawhill Apartments.

We made Lawhill our base pre (1 week) and post (3days) our wedding. We had a penthouse and 3 bedroom and a 1 bed booked plus there were other guests that booked their own apartments. All were happy with the Apartments and so close to the V & A Waterfront with everything to do there and all the places to eat as well. We all enjoyed our time there. So convenient and safe.

Stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it. The location can't get much better, as it's just a short 5-8 minute walk from the V&A. 24 hour reception was always helpful (even late at night when we couldn't figure out how to work the washing machine) and security was very tight. The canal view rooms are splendid. Housekeeping will wash your dishes in addition to everything else.

All in all, a great location, clean, affordable and great value. We would definitely stay here again on a return trip to Cape Town!

Room Tip: Get the canal view!
