We visited for drinks, only, at sunset. The road is narrow here with restricted car parking for hotel residents, but you can park on the other side of the road about 250 metres away. Drinks are expensive by South African standards but ample snacks are delivered with the drinks, and when the sun sets you realise that the price was... More

We booked a 6 night stay based on our good experience with other Red Carnation hotels. Unfortunately, our expectations were not met and we will not return. The reason is that there are so many nicer hotels in Cape Town, and It is hard to be compared to other Red Carnation hotels like Oyster Box in Durban and Bushman's Kloof... More

I just returned from 5 unforgettable days spent at the beautiful 12A. It's an amazing setting in a nature reserve with stunning sunsets and great cocktails. I was there at a conference while my partner was having a break. The organisation and food for the conference was excellent. As with any organisation, it's the people who make it and the... More

This place is so out of date, by about 25 years. The food is okay, but the furnishings and decor? Oh dear...late 80's/early 90's and not in a good way. Plus, don't let them fool you, it's nowhere near Camps Bay. It's at least 5 miles away and there's nothing else near the hotel so you can't really walk anywhere.... More

We visited The 12 Apostles during January 2015 and were very impressed with the facilities, rooms and great service. The sincere welcome by Jason at reception with complimentary champagne started this wonderful experience. The hotel is located about 5kms from Camps Bay and Hout Bay, so a rental car is advisable although there are shuttles avalaible. The hotel overlooks a... More

Spent 7 nights at the 12 Apostles, the attention to detail was so welcomed. I really had excellent service, The staff were polite and accomodating and thought of things to make my holiday more pleasant without me having to ask. The accomodation was excellent, clean and up to standard. WIll definately visit again if I am in the City.

The hotel was lovely and clean and all the staff were joyful and all hotel service was wonderful. But unfortunately the hotel is not to relax as is evident . because the location of the hotel in front of Victoria road very annoying with the passage of all kinds of engines for 24 hours.

Our first holiday in South Africa and what a way to begin! There is always that doubt when visiting a new holiday destination for the first time. Have no fears with the 12 Apostles. Perfectly situated a discrete distance from Cape Town and Camps Bay. The location is simply stunning with a backdrop of Table Mountain and the other Apostles.... More
