“One of the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

The 12 Apostles Hotel is always our first choice when celebrating a special occasion. Every detail is cheerfully taken care of for weddings,birthdays anniversaries etc and we have never been disappointed in any way. The rooms are superb, both sea and mountain facing,the food excellent (not forgetting the sommelier, Gregory, who carefully pairs your wine for you) and the staff polite, friendly and very efficient. Breakfast on the sea facing terrace is unbeatable. Book a stay now!

From the moment we arrived and received our complimentary glass of bubbly till we left after being presented with a good luck message from the pastry chef at breakfast in the Azure restaurant the service throughout the 12 Apostles was friendly and of the highest order.

The hotel, with it's stunning view over the Atlantic, is located about 30 minutes from the Cape Town Waterfront but no need to worry there is a courtesy transport from the hotel.

We had a superior room with views of both the seas and the mountains, the room was large with all the normal facilities.

The breakfast, on the terrace overlooking the sea, is outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly staff who quickly get to know your preferences.

We tended to eat in the Leopards Bar with it's stunning views of the sunset over the Atlantic, Once again there the friendly service was outstanding.

One afternoon we had the excellent afternoon tea which was enough to feed 4 not just the 2 of us.

When we return to Cape Town we will definitely stay at the peaceful hotel that is the 12 Apostles.

This was our third visit to Capetown and we had viewed 12A on a trip along the coast last year. How lucky was that! Despite never being disappointed with our choices of hotels in Capetown, this is possibly the best hotel that we have visited. We decided to opt for a superior sea view room and did not regret it for a minute. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed, excellent bathroom and toiletries but, above all, the most spectacular view, which we were able to enjoy from our lovely balcony.
We have found from our travels that many hotels are able to provide this level of comfort, but the 12A was outstanding from the point of view of staff and service. From our arrival to departure ALL staff could not have been more helpful. We were impressed that the General Manager took the time to speak to guests at breakfast and front of house staff, particularly Dale the concierge, were very helpful. We attended a concert at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and asked for a picnic. It was delicious and a member of staff enquired if we had enjoyed the concert and the picnic when we saw them the next day.
Meals at the hotel were of the highest quality and service was always superb. If you get the chance, book a table at the Azure and complete the night with a cocktail at the Leopard Bar.
We left the 12A on a hot, sunny day with nothing but happy memories. We will definitely be hoping to revisit next year.

As a local resident in the area, I haven't had the need nor the pleasure of staying at the actual hotel. I did however manage a luncheon there recently, which given the exclusive nature of the hotel - is not advertised as a separate venue for review - hence my doing so here.
The patio was unfortunately over crowded so no umbrella for sheltering from the sweltering summer sun. Given the setting - it's crucial to have exposure to outside, so we sat on the small veranda upstairs. It was adequate, but not WOW, as was the food. Drinks and snacks at the bar were in fact far superior.
Not an unforgettable lunch by any means, but a reminder to the management to perhaps not sit on their laurels!

We recently hosted a 21st birthday at the Blue Azure, as unpredictable Cape Towns weather can be the 16th Nov was pouring with rain, the roads were flooded, but the Twelve Apostles staff showed that great leadership and world class style can make an absolute disaster turn into a resounding success. From the valet service to the waiters service the function was superb, Thank you for making us proud of South Africa. Miriam P

Room Tip: If you can afford it the rooms in the main hotel over looking the ocean is fantastic

While there is so much I could say about The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa, I'll sum it up in 1 word, Amazing! From the moment you drive up to the front door to the moment you step foot into the lobby, you know that you 'have arrived'!

Another perfect stay at 12 Apostles; staff could not be more wonderful; they exemplify service and hospitality; rooms are so amazingly comfortable even with the fabulous Cape Town at your feet you don't want to leave; breakfast better than ever and the Leopard Bar fun and inviting. Thank you for 12A for doing it right again and again. You are truly the best.

Room Tip: A suite on the end facing the ocean - perfection!
