Situated near to some of the most prestigious vineyards near Capetown, this is the perfect base for exploring the area. Close to everything yet far away from the hussle and bussle and noise of town. Rooms are absolutely huge and have open bathroms and showers along with a living area with one of the biggest TV's I've ever seen. They... More

This is a truly beautiful property - from the gorgeous gardens and pool to the large comfortable sitting room. Our room was huge and I've lived in flats that were smaller than the bathroom. Conveniently located for all the wonderful vineyards in Constantia, and not so far from Central Cape Town. The service and the staff are superb, and there... More

We flew in to Cape Town on an overnight flight from LHR and wanted somewhere peaceful with some touches of luxury to start our honeymoon, as we were returning to the airport to fly to Nelspruit the following day. The Last Word Constantia definitely fitted the bill! We booked return car transportation with the hotel at R350 each way. The... More

What can I say! My father had just died and I was in hell. A place to heal my soul. THANK YOU. Your brilliant staff turned me to life again. A fantastic Christmas meal and lovely wine and champagne. Lovely people to meet and and a safe place to begin again.

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
