This is one of our favourite Cape Town hotels and because its a relais and chateau establishment means that you only get the best. The rooms are superbly decorated, the spa is an oasis, the food exquisite, the high tea the 2nd best in Cape Town. 6 star rating from me.

What started as a 'let's pop in for a quick drink' became 24 hours at this brilliant place. From the warmth of the welcome of the doorman despite our arriving in a rental car with 'rent a cheapie' emblazoned on the back window.

This hotel provides one of the most stunning views in Capetown! Hotel staff was very warm and welcoming, the rooms are cozy and very clean with comfortable beds, and the breakfast buffet was extensive and delicious!

Having watched Varun Sharma's coverage of this property, i decided I would take the folks to Cape Town for an experience at the 12 Apostles. This is not a grand building of reception halls and languid corridors. In fact for the money I was apprehensive on arrival. Be that as it may the 12 Apostles is located between the Cape... More
