This is one of the most amazing settings, breath taking beautiful. The best suites in Nr 4 & Nr 5 but normally booked well in advance. Fanie gave us great service and even set up our table for dinner inside the room. A very romantic setting with your own private balcony and the best views of the ocean. Falling asleep... More

This was a very difficult review to write as so much about TLW Long Beach is stunning. The view is simply breath taking , the staff are amazingly attentive and Farnie the manager exemplifies perfect customer service. It is worth booking an upstairs room (4 or 5) as these have a panoramic view over the beach. The complimentary drinks is... More

This hotel is for me the dream home I would one day like to have! It is right on the beach and all the rooms have some sort of view. We stayed in an Elegant suite on the second floor. These suites are the ones with the best view, and what a view! it is like been in the middle... More

Where do I start with my praise? Firstly the location...it's literally on the beach. This is to say, Long Beach, Kommetjie, a world renowned surf spot. This means that whilst sitting out on the top balcony you have lots of things to watch and admire, not least the view of Chapmans peak, Hout Bay and the back of Table Mountain,... More

FABULOUS!!! We stayed here for 3 nights in June 2014. Whilst the weather was dominated by extreme cold, storms and hail, the hotel was a wonderful haven and the staff went out of their way to make our stay as fantastic as possible. We were on a “therapy” trip for my son and they borrowed us umbrellas, lunch packs, prepared... More

My husband and I stayed at The Last Word for 2 nights in May 2014. We had booked a superior double (one of the downstairs rooms) but on arriving in a heavy downpour, our room had a little leak so we were quickly moved to one of the upstairs rooms. The next night we moved downstairs, so I can give... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were blown away by how beautiful the guest house was. We stayed in Room 4 which is off the dining area and the "room" was not a room, it was a suite. The attention to detail was so impressive and the suite was absolutely breathtaking. The turn town service where the leave little... More

Visited Last Word at the end of March 2014. Simply stunning! We used it after a busy ten days touring and stayed there for 6 days. So glad we did - we chilled out completely and had a very restful time. We did not hire a car but the services of local driver Mike were certainly worth the very reasonable... More

Thoroughly enjoyed two night stay . Staff is friendly and most obliging . Great breakfast and dinner . Faults . Directions to property not as clear as they could be .

This place was just amazing. Staff, rooms, food, the view, sunset, sunrise, everything was great. All rooms have a private balcony or access to the garden. There is a swimming pool in the garden, if the Atlantic Ocean is a bit cold (it was). Rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. I loved the fact that they put a small dessert... More
