The Last Word is a perfect description for this hotel. We were lucky enough to get the chance to stay here in March. We had stayed in Stellenbosch and Camps Bay immediately beforehand. Our previous room was on the beach and had great views but was quite small so our room at The Last Word, which was on the scale... More

Very clean and spacious room with modern amenities and a beautiful mosaic shower. Breakfasts are tasty with lots of variety- there is a buffet of fruits, cheeses and pastries and there is the option to order hot breakfasts. Staff were wonderful- very attentive and friendly. Pool area and garden is beautiful. Would definitely stay here again!

This absolutely amazing and gorgeous property is hidden behind a wonderful restaurant. It has beautiful gardens and private facilities. The food is great and the staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The ambiance of this hotel is tranquil although it's just off a busy road.

Beautiful boutique guest house, very luxurious and wonderful service. I had stayed many years ago and loved it then but was not disappointed in this visit. We needed somewhere close to Constantia so deliberately chose this venue. Uber couldnt find us though, could only pick up a street next door but was handled with a quick call.

Simply put this experience will blow you away. It is a beautiful classy hotel with luxurious rooms and grounds and the service is equally tremendous and classy. The room was large and comfortable, the shower and tub were both wonderful and large. The wines offered in the room were excellent and the overall stay couldn't have been better.

Excellent place to stay and relax. Healthy breakfast, great ambience. The staff were wonderful and the suite I stayed in had a private pool and wild garden. However you are expected to order lunch and dinner from restaurants outside the hotel. Pricey, but worth every penny. I will definitely stay there again.
