About the Manager

Born and raised in Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I now live in the Algarve, Portugal, one of Europe's sunniest and most popular tourist destinations. I remain connected to South Africa and visit Cape Town regularly.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A very nice, clean apartment with lots of outside space. The Rockwell is very practical and in a very central location, with good service from the Reception. I had a very good time and hope to be back in the near future.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was nicely furnished and comfortable. The view is ok and the location is very near city center and lots of restaurants (mostly chain places). The staff in the lobby was very helpful trying to plan tourist activities. If you want to find activities off the beaten path, you'll have to search a little farther. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am so pleased that you had an enjoyable stay at The Rockwell. it is good to know that the hotel staff were able to assist you with tourist activities. The Recommended Restaurant guide that I send all our guests, has mostly unique restaurants, rather than chains, personal favourites located around The Rockwell neighbourhood, as well as a few others further afield. Best wishes, Barbara

Nice clean apartment if you like noise!

  • 3 of 5

Great location, neat and clean apartment with nice pool and gym just few meters away. You need to be a good sleeper due to 3 bars/restaurants just 5-10 meters away and apartment is just above street level with plenty of drunk people especially in weekends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am so pleased that you were happy with the apartment and excellent facilities in The Rockwell. It is in a great location, in a very popular and trendy neighbourhood, with much happening and so we can't promise our guests peace and quiet all the time. There were a couple of big sporting events over the weekend of your stay and South Africans take their sport very seriously, so I am sorry that you were disturbed by celebrations. Best wishes, Barbara

Amazing apartment in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Loved this apartment and loved Cape Town. This is the perfect base for exploring the many wonders of Cape Town and can highly recommend. The apartment is modern, bright, clean and very well equipped. It has a huge wrap around balcony, ideal for enjoying a glass of wine after a busy day sightseeing. Was great to wake up to the view of Table Mountain, a must see for anyone during their stay. The apartment is in a great location, with many shops and restaurants within walking distance and also close to the wonderful V & A Waterfront. You can also use all the hotel facilities, including the indoor pool and gym. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and security is excellent. There is so much to see and do in Cape Town and had an amazing holiday. If I ever get the chance to return would definitely book this apartment again.

Great apartment and hotel, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this apartment in September this year and I couldn’t have chosen a better place for my holiday in the amazing city of Cape Town.

The apartment 108 Rockwell exceeded our expectations, it was very well equipped, extremely comfortable and spotless. It has a big balcony with fantastic views over Table Mountain and Lion’s Head and the outside furnishings are really comfortable, perfect for some moments of relaxation at the end of the day.

The Rockwell All-Suite Apart Hotel is where you want to say if you plan to get around and have a variety of places to go at walking distance, such as shopping centre, great restaurants, shops and transport. The taxi service is very good and cheap.

Cape Town was so awesome I never made it to the Hotel indoor pool or gym, I always returned too tired and always awoke eager to hit the sights, but the Hotel has all the amenities you can ask for and the staff are extremely polite and efficient.

Booking with Barbara was so easy and the local manager, very helpful.

I can highly recommend this apartment!

Fantastic apartment in Cape Town in a great area!

  • 5 of 5

I have just got back from an 8 night stay in Cape Town and all I can say is what a great place Cape Town is. 8 nights just isn’t enough! The booking process went smoothly with Barbara (at Algarve Getaways). The apartment is just as described on the internet, clean, modern, bright, has all the mod-cons needed, even a small welcome letter from Sabina (the manager) explaining the basics of the apartment. The location of the apartment is also good as it is within easy access to the main areas. There is a supermarket in walking distance around the corner also. The hotel staff were great and it was a plus having an indoor heated pool & gym free to use. Cape Town has many great things to see and eat, with going up Table Mountain one of my personal favorites. What a view! I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay & explore Cape Town and I hope to return in the near future!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

The apartment fully met the description presented. It was clean, fully equipped and met all of our needs. The area is very convenient to the waterfront and there are wonderful restaurants located within walking distance. There is also a car rental and grocery store just a block away. The hotel was very secure and exercise facilities, parking, internet and an excellent concierge staff. Even though we were staying in a private apartment, the hotel staff was very accommodating and friendly.

Sabina, the local manager, is fabulous. She provided pick up and drop off for us at the airport and accommodated all our of needs.

The Rockwell has a wonderful location and provided the room we needed to be comfortable for a 10 day stay. I recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to visit Cape Town and be near the waterfront and downtown. It was clean, with parking, exercise facilities and a welcoming staff.

While our stay was wonderful, we became fully aware of how wonderful our hosts were after our departure. We left our 21 year old daughter in South Africa for a summer of volunteer work. When it became apparent that this was not going to be a positive experience, we tried to arrange for her to depart for home after only 7 days. This is where the apartment owner management and staff became our lifeline to our daughter. She needed to leave where she was staying and I called desperately hoping that the apartment was available for a short period of time until I could book a flight. Fortunately it was, but even if it would have been booked, Sabina and Barbara personally became stand in mothers in my absence. They arranged transportation for my daughter from the countryside to the apartment and set up her transfer to the airport for her trip home. They kept me informed of every detail and updated me when she was picked up and dropped off. They also volunteered to look after her, feed her, and entertain her while she remained in South Africa until her flight home to the states. As a panicked mother 14,000 miles away, these women looked after my daughter as if she were their own. I wholeheartedly recommend the apartment because it is lovely and well equipped, but unconditionally because the local manager, Sabina, and Barbara from Algarve Getaways became my daughter’s guardian angels. She is being well cared for until her flight back to the states.

From the Owner

I bought this apartment for 2 main reasons: 1. The Rockwell is such a superb hotel, with beautiful interiors, friendly, helpful staff and excellent security. It is well maintained, the apartment is of an equally high standard and our guests would have all the advantages and comfort of staying in an apartment within a 4-star hotel. 2. Location, location, location. The Rockwell is in an ideal location, for access to many outstanding restaurants, a great shopping centre, quality supermarkets, one with a fabulous deli, entertainment, an easy walk into the town centre, the Waterfront, the quaint and quirky streets and shops of trendy de Waterkant, Convention Centre and many other places.
