    The initial room that we got in de Village Logdge was rather small and dark. Toilet seat was broken, stains in bed linnen etc. After we complained, we were upgraded to one of the cottages in Loader street. That was fantastic! Rooftop terras, large specious room, absolutely brilliant.

    The staff are very friendly and very welcoming. Their hospitality is unmatched and was highly appreciated. I loved the comfort and cleanliness of our room, as well as, the convenience of the location of the lodge. Access to the city centre, the ICC specifically and the plush restuarants in De Waterkant area. Overall, it was a wonderful stay and I will most definately be back and recommend that others stay there.

    The rooms were beautifully decorated. The staff are wonderful.

    Loved the area. Liked the environment. Enjoyed the food and staff were incredibly pleasant.

    The only thing I did not like is the sad fact that I couldn't stay longer :(

    It's very close to night clubs and many restaurants , easy to walk into the city and see things in there, BUT quite far from V&A Waterfront which most of the tour start there (about 20 mins fast walk , 50 Rand for taxi). Staffs are all good enough at their job, yeah they make me feel comfortable to talk to.

    1.) I stayed in the room nearby the entrance of some people (not the main entrance), everytime when someone walk by or open-close the door, i heard that sound and feel like someone trying to open my room door all time, 2.)Internet is not so stable, on 21 March 2011 the internet in my room is not function all day and night which is important to me because I have to check email everyday.

    Felt part of the vibe at De Waterkant

    Very noisy - not only outside noise but within hotel - kitchen noise, guest movement noise, Also TV was faulty and only a couple of channels. Toilet leaked.

    From the moment we arrived we where welcomed and assited in any way needed. The decor is funky and functional and the facilities upbeat and inviting. Breakfast was included and this we looked forward to each morning as the buffet was substantial with many choices to suit the most gourmet diners to fussy eaters. The Village Lodge was warm and friednly with helpful staff and an awesome location close to Waterfront and many 'Rising Star' shops with lots to choose from. An afternoon spent on the rooftop at the Skybar watching the sun set beside Table Mountain topped it off, with tappas and a glass of champagne to wash it all down. We'll be back!

    The only thing we did not appreciate was on the last day we had stained towels, which looked like they had hair dye on them??? Preffering the window open during the evening the street at the front of the lodge was a little noisy at times, nothing a pair of earplugs couldn't fix!

    The restaurant was excellent, the sky bar is quite nice, especially at night

    it was a fight to get rooms in the hotel itself and not in one of the apartments close by. The one room we got was okay (although the aircon didn't work), the other was just a small basement room, not great. The "King Double/Twin Room with Shower" was ok, but we also had a "Luxury Double Room" booked, but I wouldn’t say that that is what we got.

    The aircon in the room.

    Room were very small, like a cabin.

    Friendly, helpful staff, especially Lucy, great location, comfortable rooms with efficient aircon, free, fast WiFi. Excellent value for money

    Weekend mornings tended to be noisy from early so don't expect a lie-in. Sky bar really nice but access limited by private parties.

    Located in a safe part of town close to new redeveloped area and some bars and restaurants.

    I was not able to open either one of my two suitcases in the room, it's that small! Basically just bed can be in the room. Wi-Fi was not working in the rooms at all. Although they advertized "free parking", that was not correct, there is "free" street parking, if/when you can find some.

    The hotel is situated in a nice area of Cape Town. Especially the roofterrace with bar and swimmingpool makes it a very relaxed place to stay.
