We stayed at The Last Word Constantia for two nights - and are dreaming of going back again. The setting - garden, pool area, breakfast/dinner area, our gorgeous room (Suite Premier), all staff, and the ATMOSPHERE were just fantastic. We enjoyed every second there.

All the boutique hotels in The Last Word group are magnificent and special. But, this property was outstanding. The grounds, the rooms, the overall ambiance, and the helpfulness of Tess and Sam were just terrific. The setting is not to be believed and a joy to come back to after a hard day of sightseeing.

I love The Constantia. I go to Cape Town regularly and stay there as much as I can. Perfect location in the heart of the Cape Town winelands, huge rooms, delicious brekkie and really lovely staff. I can't recommend it highly enough.

My original review was after a brief airing deleted by the owners of the Last Word so I will keep this one brief. Whilst staying 4 nights at the Constantia Last Word Guest House on night 3 at 10pm water started pouring through the light fittings above the bathroom area of an open plan room. I took 6 separate videos... More

This is the second attempt by these guests to discredit our hotel. The first complaint was removed by Tripadvisor because it made personal attacks on people who they seemed to dislike. We cannot remove any correspondence at our liberty if we don’t agree to what has been written. It is the sole prerogative of Tripadvisor. Many hotels experience guests who... More

Opted for staying here on the last night of a trip to South Africa and had it not been for using airmiles I might not have found it nor stayed there. Not cheap by any stretch of the imagination even on airmiles. Albeit I have lived in Cape Town previously, finding the venue proved to be quite challenging in a... More

My husband and I don't usually rate service a significant factor in choosing hotels but at The Last Word it is difficult not to-they set a standard no one else in all of SA has met during our many trips. The rooms are very nice as well. (And quiet and cool.) The breakfasts are amazingly good and also unparalleled. (Thanks... More
