After a very busy summer for me basically living in a 5 star hotel working every day and getting used to that level of service, my husband and I finally tied the knot in the fall and came down to South Africa for our honeymoon. Our first stop was Twelve Apostles for 6 nights and lordy it set the bar... More

My wife and I spent one evening at this amazing hotel and really enjoyed the experience. We booked for the winter special, taking in dinner and a movie. 5 star status is all about service and we begun our evening by being upgraded from a deluxe suite to a deluxe suite with a sea view. Only in HK have I... More

...and amazing. Perfect location and like many of the Red Carnation hotels the service is impeccable. 12A really showcases South Africa, and is a must for foreign visitors, even if just for a day visit (possibly for a spa treatment and high tea!). One of the most vital and handy services is the free shuttle service running to the V&A... More

Before going, realize that it is a 15 minute (free) shuttle ride into V & A Waterfront, and there is no ability to walk anywhere from the hotel, especially at night. With that said, it's really an excellent hotel. If you can get past that, the breakfast buffet is excellent, the views, terrific, and the spa was relaxing. Decor was... More

We have traveled the world and have never stayed in a hotel with such exceptional service as The Twelve Apostles. All staff are amazing and gave us the best service and advice possible. Dinners was outstanding and breakfasts totally blew us away! Whenever we go to Cape Town again, we will stay at this hotel!! Outstanding quality and service!

We visited the Leopard Bar on our last night in Cape Town (May 2013) for some drinks at sunset. We took a taxi from Camps Bay which took about 7 minutes and cost about 80 rand. The bar has a beautiful interior - stylish and glam. We had a great bottle of wine and some delicious cocktails. The bar has... More

From the moment my sister and I arrived at the Twelve Apostles Hotel we know we were in good hands. After a grueling flight from the US, the staff put us at ease. Our room was delightful and we slept well, eager the next morning for the “Jet Lag” spa treatment we had booked earlier. The spa was beautiful and... More

From our warm and friendly welcome by the charming and hospitable staff right up to our sad goodbyes, we had one of the most pleasant 3-day experiences of anywhere we've ever stayed.

It goes without saying that The Twelve Apostles is one of the loveliest hotels on this earth. But the people of The Twelve Apostles put this hotel over the top. We have never encountered such graciousness, kindness, competence, and warmth—to a person. A special bonus is the car service every hour in and out of Cape Town. We highly recommend... More
