My husband I stayed in this amazing hotel for three nights and during this time we also had our wedding within this incredible venue! Well, where do I start...the hotel is without a shadow of a doubt the best hotel we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot of nice places)! The rooms are uniquely decorated... More

Our family has just returned from a three night stay at this fabulous hotel. This is truly first class accommodation and the staff are sooo... friendly, they cannot do enough for you.

Situated only five kilometres from Camps Bay (5 mins) and only 15 mins from the V&A Waterfront, this is an excellent hotel for a relaxing break. The rooms are modern and spacious and the beds are very comfortable with a choice of pillows. The rooms are serviced twice a day with the beds being turned down of an evening and... More

we stayed at the 12A during late January and early February 2013. I have stayed at many high quality hotels across the world and I have to say that this beats the lot.

We had the pleasure o staying at the Twelve Apostles in January. The weather was excellent, although a bit on the windy side on the Atlantic Seaboard! Gorgeous oceanfront suite. Housekeeping was great, dining options perfect and concierge services very accommodating. If you are a city person and want things to do, the hotel may feel a bit isolated. That... More

This was our first visit to The 12 Apostles and it was an overall very good hotel. The views are fantastic. A few km's out of the hustle and bustle of Camps Bay, which suited us really well. The service was very good upon arrival - spa treatments and complimentary helicopter were said to be confirmed and booked when checking... More

The desk and restaurant service at this property was top notch. The beds were so comfortable and the food was excellent...Champage and oysters for breakfast:) We liked the fact that we were not right in Camps bay...it was quieter and more relaxing.
