What a wonderful little hotel this is! We didn't want the hustle and bustle of Capetown, so opted to stay a short distance away in Constantia which is a scenic and leafy suburb. The Last Word is small and beautiful. Lush gardens enclose a very inviting pool and the public areas inside are all very comfortable and pleasing to the... More

We extended our holiday whilst in SA and had to find accommodation,ending up in the Cape Town area.Finding The Last Word in Constantia was such a blessing as it is a wonderfully lush and green suburb with its own wineries and superb restaurants. The hotel is exquisite and the food excellent. It is, however, the staff that make this property... More

This is a lovely hotel, perfectly positioned in the Constantia winelands. Our room was spacious and elegant, with a private patio looking out onto the simply magnificent gardens. There were fresh flowers, fruit bowl, and other little touches that were appreciated. Chane and her team provided good, unobtrusive service. The turn-down was lovely - you get a nicely presented creme-brulee/... More

What can you say about one of the best hotels you have ever stayed in. The room is delightfully decorated with a beautiful orchid, large comfortable bed and fantastic ensuite through shutters behind the bed. The ensuite was glorious with a fantastic cast iron bath, a massive shower, toilet and double sinks. The gardens were stunning and we had a... More

As an elderly couple making our first visit to South Africa, we were a little concerned on how we would manage independently. However, having chosen The last Word Constantia for the first two weeks of our month long holiday we could not believe our luck. Having read reviews it seemed a little too good to be true but believe me... More

We really enjoyed out stay here. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful (Beauty served us for breakfast and gave us a huge big grin every morning), the rooms are beautiful and enormously spacious. We will definitely be back to stay when return to Cape Town to visit.

This was our first stop on a three week trip to South Africa in May. First, let me say this was a fantastic beginning to our trip. My husband and I had booked three nights. We wish at the end of our stay, that we had added on a couple more nights. This is a lovely small boutique hotel located... More

My wife and I stayed here as part of a South African "Garden Route" holiday, everywhere we stayed was first class but this place was superb, we stayed there during the off peak season in May still hot enough for us Brits though. The Last Word is beautifully appointed with luxurious rooms, we were treated like royalty by the staff... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this wonderful place. Going back somewhere is sometimes quite daunting as it can disappoint. Not this place, the room, service, were just great.
