Hotel is very well located to many attractions in Cape Town. Lovely clean and comfortable rooms. Well equipped for all the basic items one would require.

Good Value, But Do Not Trust All Promises
Despite being very good value for money a few warnings should be given. The site advertises that it has "free parking nearby" which should read "street parking as and when available". In practice it means that one has to find a parking garage nearby to unpack your luggage to take to the room. The WIFI being available is also the truth but not the whole truth. There was no WIFI in our rooms, but across the road in the coffee shop/restaurant. I do not understand how they can get away with advertising facilities that are simply not there. The accommodation is however spacious, very centrally located and relatively quiet. Hence the overall good rating.

Nice accommodation, but no WiFi in apartment. Also only street parking for vehicle.

Convenient apartment, a little tired
One bed apartment was spacious and nicely laid out. Very close to the centre of the ‘vilage’. Fittings were a little tired - including a CRT television! - and the property had been sold. Good value for the price

This was a family visit. The location and surroundings are nice. The staff was also very nice. The night we arrived we had some issues getting the electricity on. But for the trouble, we got a nice free breakfast the next day (courtesy of Charles, a great guy!). My guess is that things usually run well, but if things don't work well, they do their best to make up for it. Another minor comment is that when we enter the apartment, it seemed that it was closed (not aired) for some time. Overall a very nice stay. (It would be great to add Internet to the apartments, not only for the reception area, which is a few blocks away)
