Waterfront Village
Ranked #68 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Our apartment in the Altmore building enjoyed stunning views to Table Mountain from the bedroom, and the V&A canals from the lounge balcony. Accommodation is very spacious with washing machine, tumble dryer and a large good quality HD TV. Security on site is also very impressive … we felt very safe. Customer service from Maarnie at reception was outstanding.

However, be sure to check their website location map before you arrive as we could not find the reception office for check-in. We asked four different V&A Waterfront security guards for directions none of whom had a clue where to send us. Eventually we were told to ask at the Cape Grace Hotel (only 100 metres away) even they had to check on line for the answer!

Wifi needs updating in some apartments position and security could not be better
However their apartments under the direction of harbour house hotel HERMANUS need close scrutiny make sure you see up to date pics of condition of apt before agreeing to high rates the apt we stayed in was expensive but of a very poor quality and management seemed oblivious more details supplied if wished

Trip organised by Audley travel with our specific requirements. Stayed in Waterfront apartments for 5 days. Perfect for our requirements as we were site seeing and hiking up Table mountain as well as visiting Robben island and other places of interest. Position superb for our needs, allowing us flexibility to self cater and eat out at nearby waterfront. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend.

So we stayed at the apartment for 3 nights in month of January 2018. The apartment is of good size and spacious to stay? But there are a few things which need improvement.
1) The swiming pool were not functioning as they were dirty and no one had cleaned then.
2) The wifi is chargeable which in today's time not acceptable.
3) we had booked an Air conditioning apartment but were given one without it.
4) As we are family we tend to sit in the balcony till late in the night, talk and drink but that also you cannot do.

So over all if you are just couple you can look at it and i shall just rate it average.

Our family of three had a brilliant Cape Town based holiday, staying in a gorgeous two bedroom apartment in this complex. The apartments were all that we'd hoped for; very central, modern, comfortable, well equipped and very clean. We always found staff at reception to be welcoming and friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The only negative that our 21 year old commented on was the fact that there as no free wifi except in reception, hence the 4 and not 5 stars.
