The landscape of the South African coast is overseen by the glorious Twelve Apostles. It is an enormous formation that grabs your attention and reins over everything for miles around. Truly, a wonder of Nature.

We had a clear day and were able to see this range of mountains very clearly. The viewing is from the road, our vehicle and Table Mountain.

My room was in the shadow of these mountains and they are just majestic and so beautiful and nothing like anything one has ever seen. Hiking on these is an event and can spend entire day here.

I rate this hotel as probably the nicest bar / restaurant to go for evening drinks and watch the sun go down in Cape Town plush carpets, jazz pianist, lovely maritime feel and good wines at reasonable prices..but its all about the view. The food is excellent too.

My husband and I just need some time out from children and a getaway for a week-end. We did not know where to go as there is so many places to see in Cape Town. Whilst passing we saw the name and went in. Lucky for us there was a cancellation and we grabbed the room for the week-end. It... More

One of the beauties you don't want to miss out on. Be cautious as there are currently many road works in the vicinity so find the best route prior to going out there or much time is wasted on the narrow roads during construction.

We drove from constantia through to the beach via the apostles. A beautiful drive, especially at sunset! Takes you by a township, which was very eye opening.

Luxury and comfort and the View-Wow. Tucked away on the mountainside with nothing and no-one else nearby. No pollution or noise. Go ahead, spoil yourself. You are worth it.

The views of the ocean and the views of the land side are very interesting, assuming you don't have to drive this road. We loved the views and praised our bus driver. We never expected a seaside drive to be so exciting!
