My wife and I were at The Last Word for our wedding anniversary and my only regret is I had not found it on earlier visits to South Africa. A wonderful location with views to die for and great staff. The food on offer at the hotel is excellent but limited,particularly the wine,and there is limited choise nearby in Kommitjie... More

This is a lovely place to stay for a relaxing break, beachcombing on Kommetjie beach. Our room on the top floor, next door to the lounge and restaurant, was enormous, well furnished and with a terrace with sun-loungers and unbroken views along the beach and across to Hout Bay and Table Mountain beyond. All excellent and for that alone I'd... More

The Last Word is a very small hotel, not much bigger than a B&B. I say this because it you want a huge pool, a bar, a gym, a couple of great restaurants and all the facilities of a big hotel, this is not the place to go. But if you want somewhere to chill out, where you can virtually... More

We had a fantastic view from our room Nr.5. The 5* rating and the price sets expectations that it can't make come true in all aspects. It lacks the attention to detail and needs some repairs and replacement like the towels. Having said that we had a wonderful time, staf is very correct and helpful food is good and the... More

We had difficulty coming up with an overall score for this hotel. In the end we decided 3. It’s the weakest of the 3 ‘Last Word’ hotels we’ve tried (Constantia being the best). We were at this hotel for 5 nights in February 2016. The views here are amazing and it was certainly relaxing being right on the beach. However,... More

This is the third of the properties in The Last Word group of boutique hotels. Only 6 rooms but right on the beach and a wonderful experience. It was perfect for us since, at the end of two weeks in South Africa, this was the ideal place to rest and relax. Which we did. But, at the same time we... More

We stayed here for 3 nights before heading to Cape Town. We arrived frazzled after an overnight flight but what a beautiful spot. Fabulous rooms and lovely staff, wonderfully relaxing. It is in a remote location so a car is essential and if you don't book dinner in the hotel the night before you want it, the area has very... More

From the moment we arrived the wonderful staff at the Last Word ensured that every aspect of our stay was the best it could be. The rooms were immaculate, all the little extras that you might need were thought about. The bed was really comfortable with a view over the beach, lovely to wake up to. Nothing was too much...

This is a fantastic boutique hotel, right on a beautiful long beach. We stayed in an Elegant Suite which was simply stunning; tastefully decorated with calming hues of blues and cream which flowed through to the amazing white and blue of the sand and sky. A perfect 'get away from it all' hotel. The staff were all excellent - friendly,... More

really nice small hotel, with good rooms, nice evening turn down service, and a lovely location right on the beach. No doubt about the great house!! The staff try, but honestly dont have the 5 star performance, it is like somethings missing on the bit that makes the difference. Price was high, and you would expect it to be perfect.... More
