Everything was just as promised and better. The service was perfect and everyone was really friendly. The setting is stunning and it has a really comfortable feel. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

I have to say that I haven't actually stayed at this hotel but can't wait to. Whilst staying at the Last word Sea Five in Camps Bay, we took a drive to Kommetjie. Rose from Sea Five phoned ahead so the team at Long Beach were expecting us. We were made so welcome it was incredible. We took a cold... More

Really lovely stay at a beautiful, small [6 rooms] hotel in a fabulous location. Excellent attention by staff, good food and it felt just like staying in a private home.....without the usual draw backs! Nothing too much trouble,plentiful supply of everything and a view of the sea to soothe the soul. Highly recommended

We stayed for 3 amazing nights. The staff was fantastic, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful and plentiful. The rooms were luxurious, clean and the view spectacular. My husband and I are already starting to plan our next visit to the Cape Peninsula and Long Beach is a must!

What a beautiful, intimate place! The most amazing views of the beach & surrounding mountains! But what was so special, was the service (the staff always greeted us with smiles & made sure we had absolutely everything we needed) & the special touches the staff did to make our stay divine! When we arrived we were spoiled with cocktails &... More

This is the second time we have been fortunate to stay at The Long Beach and the view was even better than I remembered it. Our room was on the top floor and the view of the sea just stretches out in front of you from left to right! It was the most relaxing and stunning break for us.

On beautiful Long Beach, set on the dunes with a clear view across the sea into the Hout Bay valley. This hotel is right on the beach at one of the nicest surf spots in Cape Town - surfers bobbing on the waves till well after sunset. The hotel is small and intimate, only a few rooms, 5 star service,... More

I have frequently been at this place where the view on Sea and mountains near Cape Town is great except when you are in 1 of the rooms at lower level when you are actually looking at the gate which is intended to keep people out but it keeps the view also in. There are 2 nice rooms on the... More

While we at The Last Word are sorry to hear that Aloysius007 did not entirely enjoy their stay at The Last Word Long Beach, we feel it necessary to point out three things. One, that when booking with us, we make it very clear that the best view is from the suites on the top floor and that although you... More

We missed the little turn to get to this place-it is tucked away right on the beach-but when we arrived we were bowled over. It is beautiful, light and airy. The pictures on the website are a real reflectionof how it is. We looked at our photos on the computer and the sky is that blue! Jennifer met us and... More
