Just a half hour from the hustle and bustle of agape town and its Waterfront full of tourists is this charming and refined spot in the forest setting of Constantia, close to the wineries.

Outside looking in you will underestimate it but once you enter you will be greeted by an amazing look and fresh feel. Room size is very generous, Food is amazing, clean no actually very clean. Service is friendly and intimate setting. the ambiance is breath taking. Once you are there you never want to leave, in short I loved everything... More

My husband and I were in Cape Town to ride in the Cape Town Cycle Tour. Our South African friends booked this hotel for the 4 of us to stay 3 nights as they had stayed here before. I could go on for pages about how terrific this hotel is. It's one of those rare hotels where they do everything... More

We booked The Last Word "last minute" and were so happy when we arrived to be shown to a huge, lavish room with a stunning bathroom and sitting room. The location is central to everywhere you would want to explore. Everything from the bed linen, the breakfast, wonderful service and thoughtfulness of the staff is simply first class. There are...

We arrived a little after after dark but was still very warmly received by the manager on duty. They showed us to our 'room'. We stayed in a 'standard room' but compared to all other hotel rooms that I have stayed in the past this one was different... The suite is very spacious with a lounge area big enough for... More

We stayed at The Last Word in November for a week and had a very relaxing and peaceful time. The room was very large with a fantastic bathroom and lead out onto the most beautiful garden. Every afternoon when we stepped back into the hotel it was like stepping into another world, cool and quiet and peaceful after a busy... More

We had problems with the room we were allocated, Room 9 also. Having booked a standard room, we were mislead on arrival, by being told we were 'lucky' to have been 'upgraded' to a suite. This upstairs 'suite' was large and well equipped, but had no outside space, overlooked the car park and the roof of the kitchen below. When... More

These guests insisted on being moved or relocated to another hotel at 9:30pm on the Friday night in question. They were abusive and verbally attacked the management on duty who in desperation phoned one of the owners of the business. Again, on the phone the guest was disparaging and adamant that at that late hour something should be done. It... More

We booked The Last Word having looked at Trip Advisor reviews for the Constantia area. I'm so sad to say our visit came nowhere near the five star reviews The Last Word has been getting recently. We stayed as a family of four, two adults and two children (3 and 5 years old) for three nights (Thursday, Friday and Saturday)... More

Thank you we appreciate the compliments and also value the constructive criticisms where applicable. However, some of the above statements are incorrect and we respond accordingly. With regard to the air-conditioning unit it did not pour water out and merely created a very small damp patch on the carpet. The area was dried up and the towels replaced. It is... More

One of the best places we stayed on our visit to the Cape area! Close to restaurants. Huge room, and even larger bath. Footed tub in the center, and open walk in shower. Lovely pool area, beautifully manicured gardens with sitting areas in sun or shade. Helpful staff. Wonderful variety at the expansive breakfast buffet. One day we wanted a... More
