Everything was excellent. The Location is very good. Near to a shopping center, not far from city center and Waterfront. Rooms were spacious with own bathroom each.

Great neighbourhood, simple accommodation
Standard room in a great part of town. We had a little studio which is fine if you are just palnning to use it as a base for sleeping. Room was rather dark with no outside space or view.

Great Stay
Everything as you would expect from this property, clean well maintained lots of room, views of table top mountain and the V&A would go back again, staff very helpful, only minor issue we had was with a late check in we couldn't contact them on the phone number provided so we had to make sure we arrived before check in closed we're not tec minded with phones so I'm sure there are other ways to contact them via the phone A most enjoyable stay was had One thing to be aware of is the property is on a steep hill, this wasn't a issue for us but could be for others Its about a 20 minute walk to the V&A water front and a 10 minute walk to Long Street, the surrounding area was safe to walk around in the day time, carnt comment for the evening

Property was largely ok - however i found the broadband and TV to be substandard (you couldnt get a wireless signal on the roof terrace for example and the quality of the TV/Satellite signal was unwatchable. The spiral staircase is very very narrow and quite steep - the elderly and anyone with vertigo should be wary of booking this place. Finally the quality of the outdoor furniture on the roof terrace was substandard and needs replacing. On the positive side the kitchen was fairly well equipt, the bedrooms were comfortable and air-conned and generally well maintained/cleaned by the agents.

Really depends on The owners property
First, it really depends on which property you stay in and whether the owner has invested in providing a comfortable and good place to stay in. We have been in two of this management company’s properties and the one we booked with was not the best in terms of luxury quality. Plus side was it’s terrace and the three bedrooms. But one bedroom was street side with a shared bathroom to the second bedroom. Upstairs bedroom had it’s own bathroom and terrace. The bathroom fixtures upstairs needs improvement. Kitchen was basic with open shelves. Washing machine was functional but not working very well. Living area is under glass sky lights and is totally enclosed so you can’t get any air into the area. There is a small tv provided to the guests. Overall, we didn’t like this property and wouldn’t stay there again and changed to a newer apartment with a new kitchen and bathrooms. The second was more comfortable, better bathroom and kitchen fixtures, washer and dryer, interior design was more pleasant and actually matched. Small patio with barbecue, only problem was that we had hot water problems. There is daily light housekeeping and they provide new towels.
