The Last Word is a charming boutique hotel with only a handful of rooms, very attentive, wonderful staff and a beautiful location. Spacious rooms, great breakfast service and spectacular view across the ocean. Just a word of advice: when arriving after dark, as we did, it is not obvious where the hotel is located, as Kirsten Avenue turns into a... More

Excellent location on the beach with a perfect view on the Table Mountains behind the bay. No noise but the breaking waves. Have dinner on their balcony or your terrace, and simply enjoy. Surf spot right in front of the house. Famie and the entire team went the extra mile for whatever was requested. Thanks. Great stay. Was there after... More

My wife and I spent a long weekend at this wonderful , friendly boutique hotel with the most beautiful sea views. The first impressions of friendly helpful staff were backed up throughout the weekend with their unflagging attention to their guests. The complimentary drinks were a bonus, and the wonderful sea views from the bedroom and dining-room were a bonus.... More

Suun hats, beach towels, sunsccreen and a beach bag left on the bed, sea shells on the pillows. To fall to sleep at night with the french doors... More

Wonderful location looking out over a stunning beach with Chapman's Peak in the background, amazing room (Junior Suite) on the ground floor and brilliant breakfasts. Couldn't have asked for more, but the complimentary drinks were a nice little extra. More than all that we found the staff incredibly friendly and helpful, in particularJennifer and Leo were absolute legends and a... More

My husband and I stayed here for our Honeymoon. It was fantastic. The staff were so friendly and so helpful and really went out of their way to make our stay extra special. We were really impressed. The food was also great.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon trip and it really didn't disappoint. We stayed upstairs and had a wonderful view of the beach and mountains. I don't think I have ever had a shower with such a wonderful view. The room was lovely and the free drinks were an added bonus. We spent our evenings... More

We had an amazing time in the Last Word Long Beach. Everything was absolutely perfect, the staff made sure we are comfortable at any time. We arrived early, and until our room was freed we were given the room downstairs. It's also nice that we can compare the two, so while room downstairs is a bit more spacious and has... More

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
