Not too bad
The apartment is beautiful but the couches are old and dirty they need to be changed as in 3years ago. Bedding also old please get warm duvets. Cleaning lady not friendly at all, doesn’t greet she needs classes for that, otherwise the apartments are in a nice area except it’s very noisy around there bcse they are not sound proof u can hear everything happening outside and in the pub next to it.

2/10 Poor

I booked last minute and didn’t receive his email that I need to pick up key in different place. I told him that I dont have cash in South Africa due to safety reason and he yelled over the phone that “I am general manager of the company and you ask me leave my office to deliver the key at apartment. No I wont give you the key and booking is non refundable, you wont get money back.” as he uses to yell to his customers during check in time! He does business in hospitality industry but he has no idea what to do and “I don’t care” or, “you are killing me” when I request key at apartment. I had to contact to and he only came after they talk to him. The facilities of apartment is tired: cabpet is old and sofas are broken. “This internet is only for check mail. If you watch YouTube, film, download / upload, I will charge you. These sofabed can not convert to be a bed as it is broken, if you try to conver it, I will charge you... the building has car parking for this apartment, If you park you have to pay 50R per day to ME”. Well all is he wants to save the cost and collect extra money from customers as much as he can. Bye bye Greece Dad never see you again! I strongly NOT RECOMMEND this place.

Dockside prison
On check in a few miles from location the check in was over an hour long. Driving to the hotel to then have a shower the running water was like sewerage, dirty and brown, could not use shower or clean teeth in the basin water disgusting. Bed linen not adequate, dirty, dirty towels, Lounge chair sofa beds x2, one sheet and one blanket for two children on one sofa bed, and for the second sofa bed only one sheet only for my third child, very cold, pillows old and damp and mouldy. MY WIFE AND I HAD TO PURCHASE SHEETS, PILLOWS AND BLANKETS the next morning from Sheet Street, were also had to complain and were moved into a next room the next day, whilst again waiting for 2 hours.

Not bad at all!
We were very comfortable! Everything we needed was there. The only complaint, the nose level of being in the CBD.
