Reviews for Daddy Long Legs Self Catering Apartments
Self catering apartments are situated directly above Cafe Mojito which seems to be a nightclub. A call to the police informed me that a business license allows the club to make a noise until 4am on any night of the week. Bring ear plugs or horse tranquilizers so you can get some sleep. Be prepared to feel your bed vibrate - not in a good way. Not conducive to business travel.PS: My 01:00 Google search shows an unresolved feud between hotel owners and businesses in Long street going back a few years. I want a refund.
Nicely furnished spacious apartment and value for money, but situated above a noisy bar. Unbearable noise until 2am. The side entrance is along a dodgy alley, so must watch your back when entering or leaving the apartment. 4 keys to be exact. Overall, an good place for a bunch of partygoers.
I'd actually live there. Really felt like home. I think that's going to be my home every time I visit the Mother City.
Wonderful location. All the you require for your stay is available. Spar just up the road. For the party people.
Lovely little apartment on long Street. Well decorated. Well equipped with TV(no dstv), microwave, toaster, coffee machine (free capsules too), fridge, oven and stove. Close to the sights. A bit noisy at night but it's okay if you aren't planning to be indoors during those hours.
Above average facilities within it's price range, stunning location and friendly staff/management.
My wife and I had prior experience with the The Daddy brand by the likes of the Old McDaddy trailer park near Grabouw. However, the Daddy Long Legs self-catering apartments are definitely not in the same class as their Hotels. Firstly, we were surprised that the apartment was at a totally different address than the Daddy Long Legs Hotel. After we arrived at the hotel with all our luggage we had to walk about 5 blocks further down Long street to the apartment. Passing the rubbish bins in the alley we found the uninviting red door entrance to the apartment. The apartment was situated directly above Cafe Mojito, a lively Cuban Cafe. Once weve entered the apartment we were greeted with mixed smells of cigarette smoke and mildew. The self-catering kitchen had very limited cutlery. The bed was not made properly and the duvet cover not buttoned up. The single bedlamp was on it's last legs. The air conditioner was out of order and the remote control was broken and needed batteries. Overall, we got that eerie dirty feeling inside this apartment. We spent only a few minutes there, long enough to search for alternative accommodation. Whereafter we cut our losses and dropped the keys in the postbox and happy to leave this place. Needless to say, we wont be visiting again.
We willingly forfeited a non-refundable 2 night stay at this place, it's that bad. When we arrived to collect the key, we were advised by the concierge that the entrance to the apartments was a "red door in the alley". First Flag! we drove past the entrance and it was literally in an alley way, the street was crowded, there were people loitering in the alley, it was so crowded, there was NO PARKING, we were not made aware of this previously, we were told to park at Shell garage (2 blocks up), this would have not been a good idea as both my husband and I had backbacks and an overnight bag each. we did not feel this was safe as streets were overcrowded. We decided not to stay the night, went back to the concierge and asked for our money back even if it was for the second night we booked, as we would not be staying at all, we were advised that it was non-refundable. We then decided to find last minute accommodation elsewhere, which luckily we found. The next day after staying the night elsewhere,, we decided to give it another chance in broad daylight. Firstly, in this alley there were still random individuals loitering in the alley, there was a line of open bins full of trash directly opposite the entrance, we struggled for 10 minutes to open the gate at the entrance, once we got the gate open we struggled to lock the door, we proceeded to enter the apartment. It smelt of smoke, reeked actually, there were cigarette burn holes on the couch, the bed looked unmade like it had just been pulled straight and no blackout curtains as the facilities stated. It was still really noisy, did not feel comfortable in the apartment so we left and decided to hand the keys back, one night early at 10 am, we were again advised no refunds and later the afternoon was shocked to see that they had put the apartment back online for the night! Do not waste your time booking at this place, it was the worst travelling experience we have ever had!Scroll past this place and look for something half decent elsewhere!
"More interested in profits than customer service"
I am disappointed at Daddy Long Legs' refusal to refund my deposit after having to cancel booking within hours of receiving confirmation due to unforeseen circumstances.While I am aware of the 30 day policy on refunding deposit I feel I have been treated unfairly. I made the booking 5 days before going to Cape Town. Between paying the deposit and receiving the confirmation the following day circumstances changed, I immediately requested cancellation. The hotel could not have been adversely affected during this short time period and should have been more understanding. Had they been fair in this matter I would have considered staying there in the future however their decision leaves me wondering how they treat their clients overall.I will not consider this hotel in the future and will warn everyone in my network not to trust this establishment or support their business. Their decision makes it clear they are more interested in profit than customer service.
Enjoyed the stay it met our expectations.
