The Twelve Apostles is one of the nicest settings in Cape Town. And there are options for eating here too. The Leopard Lounge the fine dining restaurant and the Cafe. The settings for each are all lovely and the service is good but the prices are outlandishly high for average tasting food. Would be nice to have more interesting menus... More

Only had a drink, but we were there for the most memorable sunset! I will never forget it. The hotel looks really nice and lively.

Leisurely drive around and soaking the fascinating views is hands down one of THE best in the world. Definitely no short-cuts advised. Take a trek or better still loll on the heavenly shoreline.

The Twelve Apostles are 12 rock formations along the coast in Cape Town. A delightful drive along the coastline takes you to the Twelve Apostles hotel where you can enjoy a great meal and good drinks. These rock formations looking out over the water are immense and imposing. Great photo opportunities. Recommended

On a clear day the view is awesome, when the clouds are low and it is mist you see nothing, however, in-between the view is different every minute. Well worth the visit even if there is a blanket of cloud.
