Mouille Point Village
Reviewed 30 January 2014

From start to finish an excellent base for exploring Cape Town and the Cape. Due to the timing of our flight we arrived 6 hours before normal check-in (2pm) - but no problem, they asked us to sit by the pool for half an hour and then we were installed by 8:30 am all set for the day.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Very good location, quiet (at least on our side facing the mountains, you might get a bit of traffic noise in rooms facing the sea) except for Monday morning which is obviously bins day so there's a bit of noise then but nothing major. Two or three decent eateries in easy walking distance and safe after dark to walk back - we would include the Radisson on that too.

V&A waterfront an easy 15 minute walk along the front - loads to go at there - try the 400g kebab at Karibu - see if you can finish it!! We walked out and taxied back from there for the princely sum of R50 (three quid to you mate!). There's a massive 'Pick & Pay' (like Tesco) there for getting essentials like milk, fruit, wine etc

Meals for two including wine and sparkling water (you will get thirsty) typically about R650 (£40).

Hop On Hop Off bus is a treat - easily the best way to get to the cable car for table mountain without a car.

We walked all the way into Cape Town itself in about 30 minutes - take water as you will get warm and thirsty. OK to explore and easily done on foot - two or three slightly unpleasant encounters with beggars but no big deal.

Hired a car for part of the time - driving around the town and the cape was very easy, sticking to the main routes. You will inevitably encounter/pass through parts of townships but again although a bit unnerving we had no problems. Fuel is ridiculously cheap about 80p a litre for unleaded - just remember to tip the chaps R4 or 5 for doing the necessary - contrary to what we read credit cards are usually accepted for fuel.

Indeed credit cards usually accepted everywhere - in restaurants they will bring pin terminal to you or ask you to go to the till.

Only downside was we couldn't get a late check-out as they were very busy - if I did it again I'd book the extra day - in the event it was fine to leave our luggage at the office and go walkabout and have lunch until it wa time to go the airport.

Airport transfer we used ordinary taxis both ways (look for touchdown taxis on arrival - ignore the other touts) and the hotel will call taxi for return. R300 to 350 inc tip (about £20)

Altogether grand!

Room Tip: pick the ones facing the mountain

When we booked this we believed that there was availability in a top floor apartment and requested this on the booking 6 months prior to arrival. On arrival we were advised that we would need to book a year in advance to get a top floor room. These are not luxury apartments by any standard. The apartments are getting a little dated but they are clean tidy and had a comfortable bed. On a bus route and within easy reach of the V&A waterfront. Staff were friendly and helpful if you needed help. No Wi-Fi but access in the reception to a terminal to get online. We paid for a luxury apartment but do not believe that we had VfM.

Room Tip: First few floors on the sea side will experience some traffic noise but this is not excessive and do...

There is always good and bad.
Firstly be aware that this is not a swishy new modern building, and the apartments are not newly remodeled, but they are acceptable. The front desk staff were helpfulish.........acceptable but not ultra service orientated. We had a thick duvet on the bed in the height of summer and no aircon....EVERYDAY we had to ask the cleaning staff for a top sheet and for them not to put the duvet back in the cover. The apt was large with tons of closet space and a well equipped kitchen, with a washer / dryer combo. There is no dishwasher, but your dishes are washed daily by the staff ( except sun) towels and linens are changed every 3 days. I did have to sweep several times as walking on the tiled floor felt gritty, even after they had cleaned. There was stained carpet in the bedroom, hard beds with a thick duvet,nada safe in the room.. We had a mountain facing view which was beautiful, but there is a huge pond that is part of the golf course and the nocturnal birds make a huge noise at night....you have to keep windows open as there is no aircon, there was a floor fan but we did not need it. We are noise and light sensitive at night, and although the large windows and super view are great, we were bothered by the light in the morning, and noise when we were trying to sleep. Bathroom with tub and shower combo, not much storage space, and some days we got great towels, other days threadbare ones, but you can always ask for others.
Tv in both rooms, but the bedroom one never worked.....we rarely watched anyways.. Dining table and 2 couches, one was more like a bed! Great balcony with table and chairs,with super view.
Great parking unsecured but really no problems....there is secure parking for $8 per day.
The building staff ( security) are always around, and the downstairs lobby was always being cleaned! Shining knobs and cleaning the inside of the lifts. No wifi......you can buy time in the reception area only.
There is a small pool which we never used, but it looked good.
My husband jogs and he loved his morning runs along the beach front... Coffee places close by,a few restaurants, and waterfront close by by car. The light house is nearby and when foggy the horn sounds.......not too too bothersome.
Great garbage removal on each floor, 2 elevators. Private people do live in the building which is called Westridge, so don't look for a sign that says Mouille Point Village.
When you pay this price you should not expect 5 star anything, but it is good value and a great location. Good free parking, and good security.

Room Tip: Mountain facing great view , but noisy because of the birds, sea facing may be noisy because there i...

Old structure but very nice residence. Near the waterfront and Sea Point. Collegate with busline 104 and the double deck bus (red and blue line). Very large and confortable room. Next time I return in Cape Town, I return here! **** from Italy!

Great location, excellent price. Handy to have the kitchen and laundry facillities in the two room apartment. Very secure, cleaner was friendly and helpful. Great park right outside the door and a short walk to beaches. Easy access to the freeways and the Vand A waterfront.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the golf course are quiet and great views of the mountain.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment recently and I really would like to tell you that the fact that the apartments is conveniently equipped and modern with nice comfy beds is the only type of review I can give I will not be honest with you… The fact of the matter is that strangers (whether staff/cleaners) access your apartment when you not there (and not to clean your rooms either), but to sneakily troll through all your stuff and steal your money AND CLOTHES is a reality and it almost overshadows any convenience and comfort the place has! Management is not equipped to deal with the situation and they simply do not care about the wellbeing of guests...so they blame you in the end! So please choose wisely fellow travellers!
