We stayed for a week and enjoyed every moment. Its location in the city is very handy, as you are close to all the major attractions. The staff were all extremely friendly, the apartment was exceptional, and we loved the braai area. The view of the mountains was lovely, and we will most definitely visit again.

Neat entrance but unit a bit run down. Needs renovation especially the cupboards. Good white comfy linen. Second room very small. No space to put stuff down next to basins in the bathrooms. Friendly and helpful staff

We had a lovely stay here. All staff very friendly. Rooms tidy and spacious. Easy walks to good food and nightlife to watch World Cup matches. We also did runs up the hills to Signal Hill, Lion's Head, Table Mountain for regular runners. Nice view of Table Mountain from room. Parking available behind gated complex.

Always such a tranquil and homely place to stay. The staff are super friendly. Centrally situated and an awesome vibe only a few 100m. Perfect for a just a few days stay in the Mother City and you get to see Table Mountain close up everyday. This time, sad, but even got see a fire on the mountain.

I was a little disappointed in this venue as it does not have lifts or facilities for less abled persons and steps were very steep. The flats are neat and clean but the parking is also very restricted and large vehicles are not easy to park or manoeuvre in property. staff were however very friendly and neat.the shower in the main bedroom is very very low and i had to crouch to wash my hair. not much thought in that placement of shower head.

OK - it ain't perfect. The apartments are a bit basic and the bathrooms need an upgrade but the staff will fall over themselves to please and the location is perfect. 5 minutes from Table Mountain and 15 minutes from the city and waterfront. I love it!

Having stayed at many RCI resorts over the years, this one is a top of the line apartment block, worthy of more than its four stars. The staff were exceptional, to the point of assisting me in finding an auto electrician on a Saturday, with an address and clear directions, and pointing out the best tourist attractions in the area, with booking options. It is however, the rooms that impress. A Nespresso machine, with pods for sale at reception; four ice trays - all filled; bath robes; a bucket to collect bath/shower water that was then utilised by the staff; bathroom vanity unit with drawers and cupboards; more than adequate cupboard space; aircon in the bedroom; king size bed; good reading lights in lounge and bedroom and also no shortage of good plug points all around the rooms, with three and two-pin options – a pleasure in this connected world where most rooms have one or two plugs, plus free Wi-Fi. Full kitchen allows for cooking or snacking, with very adequate kitchenware. The best was the live CCTV feed of Table Mountain – we never switched on the TV, just enjoyed the endlessly beautiful view. For those who are bored by that, there is a second TV in the bedroom to avoid viewing clashes! In addition, there is a laundry DIY or assisted; secured parking and a library/games room with an honour system – we donated four books and took two. The shopping centre is just down the hill and the resort is ideally situated off Kloof Nek Road, gateway to most tourist sites. Definitely coming back on our next visit.

Excellent staff. The place was very neat and comfortable. A safe place near the city center. The parking is a pleasure. Do not expect a room with a view, but everything else was just "another home from home".

I was pleasantly surprised. I did ask questions about the restaurant facilities but wasn't aware that there was a fully equipped kitchen in the unit! My mom did manage to get up the stairs but I would have preferred a ground floor unit. Will definitely go back asap!
