Went on the blue and red bus tours from Capetown and the mountains provided a great backdrop to pictures taken from the top of an open deck bus.

Very nice ambience for special occasion. Great dinner service and delicious food. Service on patio for pre-dinner drinks was lacking. Patio was empty and not really set for guests. Was not a comfortable place to be. We felt out of place, no candles on tables, just completely empty tables and chairs. Big shame as that should have been a highlight... More

This Hotel is truly Cape Towns best! Everything from the rooms to restaurant is amazing. We had a beautiful evening at the hotel with a superb dinner in the Azure Restaurant. Would definitely recommend to stay here

A truly superb hotel with really good food and wines plus a stunning position south of Cape Town. Great sea views - we saw over a hundred wales sailing past! Recommend to anyone as a first class place to see the Cape area. They run a free service to take guests into the city and pitch you up again.

Beautiful range of Mountain tops. I drove past them at least 4 times a week and also climbed up on them. You can have a stunning view over Camps Bay and Lions Head.

The views here are breathtaking, and stunning. Even though it was Winter and the wind was quite brisk, we were able to get some beautiful shots and just to enjoy the natural settings that we don't get to see in urban surroundings. It is well worth the drive to see them from all angles.

Ok so there are more than 12 reasons to visit the 12 Apostles. Best viewed from Camps Bay or Lions Head. There are also hiking trails up there. Or drive along them from Camps Bay to Hout Bay. If you do decide to hike up there just remember: do it in a group ;)

Lovely to see but only if you are passing through anyway to get a nice photo. I think it is covered in lots of tours and is a nice place to stop for a photo.

With Table Mountain as a backdrop the sheer unspoilt rugged beauty takes your breath away. Looming mountains on one side and the sparkling ocean on the other- it does not get any better than this

I don't think many people know that the famous hotel is named after a range of mountain peaks. Some say that the Twelve Apostles are even more significant than Table Mountain itself. The beach and neighboring coastline sure is impressive! When you drive along the coast again, take some time to stop and look at the Twelve Apostles, as in... More
