“Great location, safe and convenient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

Stayed for a few weeks in a good sized apartment in April/May. So, facilites are goo, security are courteous. Locations was ace. Lived that there was a working dock not so far away. Better to watch than some sterile view.

Village and life staff were pretty good on the whole, and being that close to the waterfront was brilliant. Some amazing food in the food barn there. Tours could be organised from the reception, and loved Mr Deliver and am converted to Steers burgers! Not classy, but hey, think it was nearly as good as Nobu at the one and only (ok, over stating it, but it was a good burger).

As to a previous review regarding items in rooms going missing, well that happens everywhere, and SA is still largely the 3rd world. So yes, it shouldn't happen, but you have to be prudent with your valuables anywhere, and Africa is definitely one of them. I locked anything like that in a bag and stashed it to minimise finger trouble. Remember that they earn very little.

Something worth noting after i saw a disgruntled northerner, is that the complex has many different management companies and a mix of rented and owned properties, so if your neighbour is having work done in the day, it's not necessarily anyones fault, and they may not have been informed. so dropping a cog at someone about something they may have no control over is going to ruin your day as well as theirs. Not something i was affected by (some drilling in the day but not at night) but just so you know.

So all in all - great.

Room Tip: Remember that this development has owned apartments as well as rented. If you are expecting a non w...

Character.

We where made welcome, the breakfast was AMAZING!!! The location rocks. But the hotel does lack a little personality.

The Wifi was always on the blink and every time I called up or went down to reception I was made to feel like I was a pain in the [--]. Not good for such an expensive place.... Wait not good for any place.

Everyday of the seven we stayed, we said that the Hotel was in the best location for a stay in Cape Town. The waterfront must be the safest place to spent your time.
The hotel looks after your every need. The amount of care we received could not be bettered. From the moment we stepped foot in the hotel we were treated like royalty.
The areas around the hotel has all you need from shops, fast food, cafe bars, a ferris wheel, medium class restaurants, top class restaurants, liquor store etc..
The free wi-fi in the hotel is a bonus and the fact that the V & A Waterfront offers free wi-fi all over the waterfront is just brilliant.
If I come back to Cape Town it will be V&A Hotel everytime.
P.S. Their breakfast is 6 star and matches the best I have ever had.

Room Tip: Even numbered room overlook the square at the back and odd numbered rooms overlook the water.

I would rate these apartments one of the best around in terms of quality o f accommodation location etc. Good service provided by reception but housekeeping staff removed several items from our room including phone chargers, clothes and other personal items. I would say the thieving is unacceptable for such a place. This is the only complaint I had during my stay.

We stayed in 305 Kylemore. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable with the great advantage of being only 10 minutes walk from the V and A Waterfront. Lovely to sit on the balcony and catch the early morning sun - lovely place to relax after a hard day's sightseeing

Room Tip: Best rooms overlook the canal

I lived here for 2 months and the location, service, security and LOCATION! are par to none! After a long day it was nice having such a central location to meet up with new friends and explore new areas. The Waterfront is just a couple minutes walk away. the price seemd a touch hig at first but when I arrived in my 3 bedrrom 3 bathroom apartment with a view of the canel from the second floor i new it was worth it. I plan to take my wife back with me the next time i return to Cape Town.

We stayed in a plaza facing double junior suite. Only stayed one night, used more as a base really to meet up with friends. Very good choice available at breakfast. Room out of this world. Good place to use as a base for walking around the waterfront to see lots of lovely little boutique shops and great fish & chips - freshly cooked. More business like compared to what we had experienced and what we were going on to (safari) but still fantastic.
