These apartments have so much potential but are in dire need of attention, the walls are dirty, there is no air-conditioning, be careful to leave your windows open as the resurant downstairs pizza oven smoke come directly into the apartment, not very healthy. The security is good, the parking is good the apartment is central and in walking distance from shops and waterfront. If you don't mind pizza oven smoke or road noise you will be very comfortable. The restaurant downstairs food is very goo...

Room# 503 Grubby and Maintenance Required

by BullManJohn on 17 Feb 2015 (Family Traveller)

Dockside apartments is primarily owner occupied or long term tenants as opposed to short stay guests such as a hotel. As such there are limited or no common guest amenities and the place has a deserted feel. We stayed on level 5 room 503 booked through airbnb. Pre booking communication and the check-in was professional and smooth although the key collection was offsite which meant our family had to sit tight in the car for about 20mins and then drive to the apartments. Entry was via the car pa...

Nice apartment but no service at all if you book cheapest option

by in-situLondon on 30 Jan 2015 (Couple Traveller)

The apartment was nice. Spacious, small balcony, en-suite bathroom, big kitchen. The building is nice and safe and the car park is in the building. Reception is nice and you feel safe.

As clearly stated, you have to pick up the keys at a totally different location which I found a little annoying. The weirdest thing was that they do not replenish anything, even toilet roll....

Great Place

This is our second visit to Dockside It is a great one bedroom apartment with all the amenities you could need. However it is getting a little tired and needs some attention... the sliding doors and locks. The dining chairs and sofa back rests. But those are small complaints, as it is comfortable, secure, well appointed and offers spectacular views! The management team are efficient and very friendly. Thank you Nazley we will be back! PS, please remove Marilyn from the bathroom and put her in t...

Heady Heights

by Mammadillo on 06 Sep 2014 (Couple Traveller)

This is an, attractive light & airy loft apartment, located on the 12th floor of a modern block just off the Buitenkant, overlooking Cape Town docks & with views of Table Mountain. It's immaculately kept with good amenities such as a full satellite TV package, DVD player, well equipped kitchen, air conditioning - plus a (totally unnecessary) bar area! The furniture is somewhat oversized for a small apartment - but that's more an observation than a criticism. The service we received from Cape Lof...
