We always found the reception / security staff helpful, obliging, friendly and courteous. The foyer was clean and gave a good impression. The two lifts came quickly and we seldom had to wait more than 30 seconds or so for one to arrive. However, we found the accommodation itself, which was on the 5th floor, very noisy. Firstly due to a continuous flow of traffic in the main road and secondly because of drunks shouting at all hours of the night. The queen size bed was absolutely disgusting. It had a camber similar to a road, insofar as one had to make a conscious effort not to roll off while attempting to sleep. It was not possible to park our car in the bay we were allocated even though the car parked next to ours was right against the pillar. Both the cutlery and the crockery were appalling, with blunt knives, add plates, no cups and saucers - only mugs. It looked as though the kitchenware had been hastily bought at a secondhand shop or a fete. I would neither recommend this place to any of my friends nor would I ever stay there again.

I booked through QVI as this was their owned property and possibly after experiencing their other properties, I was expecting higher standards here as well. However, my experience was anything but high.

We (3 adults) checked in and were handed over a key to the apartment on the 6th floor (603). No paperwork.. nothing. A tiny lift and extremely smelly carpets took us to the apartment which looked like a jail barrack from the outside with the steel door etc.

Once inside, we were welcomed with a musty smell and very dated furniture. The kitchen had a greasy cooking top and a very unclean air filter. There were cockroaches in the cupboards and ants all over. The dining table had bar stools so high one could get a permanent hunch.

Next came the bathroom.. no lock !! and broken door. Quite embarrassing and one had to keep lights off inside while using for some privacy

We looked for a safe and found a tiny steel box nailed to the wall which was locked and without a key (so we couldn't use it)

We looked for an AC but the apartment didn't have any neither any fans.. keeping windows open at night wasn't a good experience at all.

The sofa cum bed did not open inspite of trying many maneuvers.. finally settled on the floor with a rather lumpy mattress.

Then we realised that the power sockets in SA were very different from anything we had seen anywhere else in the world.. on asking for an adapter at the desk, we were dissappointed to note that the building didn't have any spare for guests and we had to charge our phones next day after buying one.

However the location was excellent and quite convenient with or without a car.. that being the only saving grace.

Will avoid this place next time

This self-catering accommodation is, in my opinion, best suited for family vacation for those looking for last-minute peak season availability at budget prices, and not particularly worried about having just plain accommodation, without all the niceties offered by hotel brands. A big plus though, is the excellent location of this hotel, having a fabulous view of both sea and some scenic mountainous landscapes, within an affluent Sea Point Cape Town neighborhood. Another advantage is the abundance of grocery/retail shops and restaurants, without being necessarily noisy at night. A few dislikes, for future attention: Reception is dull, drab and 'cramping', and will be more welcoming with brighter colours and lighting, especially because guests desiring stable wifi (including my 7-year old son) needed to sit the whole time of wifi availability at the Reception, away from our 6th floor rented apartment. Also, the management should improve the quantity and quality of towels supplied to family guests. Guests booking this accommodation should be aware there are no AC units, only ceiling fan...we needed no heating in our case (it was hot in Cape Town in December when we stayed), and occasionally used the ceiling fan...

My family and I were in South Africa for a 2-week holiday this past August. For the most part, we found it a truly delightful (if rather expensive) country. We had booked our last 3 nights with the Centurion, a self-catering facility in Cape Town. We were fortunate that Ismail -- the friendly and very considerate cab driver who we used throughout our time in Cape Town -- also doubled as a guide and made up for the bitter experience that the Centurion turned out to be.

Like most other travelers, we had tried to search the net diligently for accommodation options. And I must say we got most of our choices right. But we were completely fooled by this particular hotel's trading advert and internal photos. To be fair, the area offers lots of choice in terms of eating places and is within easy reach of the city centre.

Anyway, late morning 15 August, my family of three (2 adults and an 11-year-old daughter) arrived at the hotel all fired up with excitement for the last leg of our thus-far very enjoyable holiday. A gentleman at Reception asked which suite we had booked, and politely explained that different apartments were owned and managed by different people. The apartment we had booked (Suite 601) was presumably managed by someone called "Vassi" and we were shown where to find him. We were met in a drab and crowded office by Vassi, who identified himself as the "Managing Director". After some 10 minutes of paperwork, he took out some discoloured sheets and an extra pillow (presumably for the sleeper couch which the online brochure had mentioned) and led us to Suite 609, even though we had specifically booked Suite 601 (a corner apartment).

The lock to the apartment was a bit iffy and Vassi explained that we had to double check each time we locked it. The alarm bells started ringing in my mind. The apartment looked old and had an overpowering smell. When I asked if we couldn't be relocated, Vassi explained that the entire place had just been fumigated (which sounded rather self-inditing).

It was winter in Cape Town, yet the sliding windows had been left wide open -- presumably to take away the pungent smell of the fumigant. I tried to shut the windows partially (it was windy upstairs and chilly), but the glass wouldn't slide easily (from what seemed like sheer lack of maintenance). The floor was wet from the windy morning shower, so I drew Vassi's attention. Guess what his response was: he strode calmly to the kitchenette sink, picked up the sponge and used it as a mop! I can't begin to describe the look of utter horror on my daughter's face!!! And he expected us to use this same sponge to do our dishes? (this was a self-catering facility). Unfortunately, I couldn't see any easy way of getting our deposit back, or else we would simply have picked up our bags and left at this stage.

Vassi proceeded with a little demo on how to convert the sleeper couch for night use. The cushions were old and looked grimy. He pulled at the seat section, revealing used tissue stuffed in the joint of the bed section (I didn't want to hazard a guess as to what the tissue might have been used for). Now, this was getting alarming (this was supposed to be a flattering holiday for my family). When I drew his attention to the tissue, Vassi proceeded with a lengthy complaint about how lazy the cleaning staff were, describing them as wanting money yet not willing to work ... and that this wasn't work that he as "Managing Director" should be doing. (Didn't he realise he was actually running his own place down with his comments?)

Now beginning to shiver from the cold, I asked where the apartment's heating controls were, only to discover there was no provision of any sort for heating the space. To our dismay, the "MD" sought to justify the lack of heating, explaining that the heating bill would exceed what he received from the rental for the apartment. By now, I was beginning to feel insulted by his insensitivity and the very bad deal we were getting. Firmly, I told Mr MD that this wasn't true and that we simply had to have heating, especially for the night. He then left to get us a mobile heater from his office.

We moved to inspect the bedroom. The mattress was clearly old and sunken in parts and there was no other covering for the mattress except the thin sheet. Without a blanket between mattress and sheet, I wondered just how hygienic this hotel bed could be. Further, the sheet was threadbare and badly bobbled, making our sleep very uncomfortable (how much would it cost to replace the sheets?). Noise from the bathroom easily traveled through the dividing wall, disturbing everyone else's sleep each time one of us used the toilet at night.

Half the time, one or another of the three lifts (2 passenger and one goods lift) was out of order. On our last evening (17 Aug), none of the three lifts was working. Thankfully, the goods lift was working again on the morning of our departure.

Avoid this place if at all possible.

Your first impression will be how ugly the building is. Monica who runs the Centurian is willing enough but the place is badly in need of some serious renovation. Our first room allocated was 701 and to say I wouldn't even lay down on the bed give syou some idea of how bad it was. We then moved to 502 after some fuss and that room had been renovated. The noise was unbelievable from the constant hooting from the local pick up taxis. You have to be very careful in Seapoint as there was serious crime elements and no one walks out after 10.00pm. Having said that its close to Cape Town and if you can find better accommodation I wouldn't rule it out. However Green Point or Mouille Point would be a better option

Having seen previous reviews on this hotel we were very apprehensive about staying here. However, we arrived on a wet afternoon after a long journey from the UK. We were immediately shown up to our apartment (603) and were very pleasantly surprised. There was the usual suite sized kitchen containing a fridge/freezer, microwave, hob and new small electrical appliances. It lacked a few sharp knives and a tin opener but that was easily remedied.
The lounge was quite spacious with a very large sofa ,a smaller settee, coffee table and TV. Again everything was very clean and tidy. The bedroom had a very large and superbly comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and an on-suite bathroom with shower and bath.
The TV was a little aged but had a large number of channels to view. Sound a bit iffy.
On the first floor was a lovely pool area with loungers and chairs. A veritable suntrap sheltered from the wind.
The two lifts were a little rickety and restricted to 3 people but they were in working order.
The hotel was ideally situated on Main and Frere, a stones throw to the promenade and the Atlantic. We had a good view of the sea from our room. Shops and a large supermarket were close by. The whole are has a large number of cafes,bars and restaurants. Spoilt for choice. It was a relatively easy walk (approx 45 minutes) to the V&A but buses were available if required.
We were only here for the week but we were so comfortable and felt really at home that we did not want to leave. When we return to Cape Town this would definitely be our hotel of choice. The following week we were booked into the Peninsula - supposedly a much better hotel than the Centurion but not in our opinion.

I trusted the website info and pictures, but what you see is not what you get! The security at night is bad. No phones in the rooms as well, thus no contact with reception or security. The guest towels were disgusting and looked used.....Beddings were stained and not hygienic. Had to request for a duvet cover and pillowcases , it was creased and terrrible.......the duvet inner, disgusting. Don't book here especially if you got kids......do not compromise safety and comfort for money.....rooms not cosy. we had a terrible ordeal.....around 04.00 in the morning on 29 April 2015, we had a thud of knocks on our door with a male screaming and asking us to open the door......we awoke with the greatest fear and shock that we were going to be robbed and attacked. We called for the Sea Point SAPS, when they arrived they say it was the SAPS Detective coming to effect a warrant of arrest for someone who was living at this address we stayed in. Hello.....I thought we booked a Holiday apartment.....Why will the Police come storming in without security Personnel. So people rather book with a more reputable place.

I have enjoyed my stay beyond my expectations from the 15th of May - 27th May. The self serviced rooms were comfortable, luxurious, clean and big. Every service was superb from the Hotel security. Much thanks to Vicky check in / out was quick. I highly recommend The Centurion.

I booked accommodation at this hotel earlier this year and when I arrived I was really not impressed with the accommodations. The lobby area of the hotel has been revamped so it looks good as you enter, yet the rest of the hotel has been forgotten. It has residential units as well as holiday units to rent. The elevators are in poor condition - only a maximum of 3 people allowed in at one time or they will break down. Even your luggage needs to go up to your room via the service elevator or the staff - who are very unfriendly - yell at you. There were cockroaches everywhere and the whole place had a very run down feel. I WOULD NOT recommend this establishment to anyone

I don’t like writing reviews that is negative, but this hotel does not deserve a good one. When you go on their website, your first impression is “WOW”. But then you arrive there... The reception does not seem to know what is going on. Suites are managed by different people… Huh? Honestly, I actually don’t know what to write here. The worst experience I had during my stay in South Africa. For the Mother City to entertain this kind of “luxurious” accommodation, is shameful. I'm sure a "no-star" grade motel will be a better stay than this place. Management very arrogant as is the staff. Walking around like the world owes them. Never ever again will I go back to this hotel!!!
