This place blew us away- it was extraordinary! Exceeded our expectations! The actual hotel is elegant with beautiful gardens and views, the rooms are luxurious, the food was delicious but probably the best part was the staff- nothing was too much for them. They always had smiles on their faces and small touches like dessert in our bedroom every night... More

The Last Word Constantia is the ideal place to stay in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. The lovely setting and beautifully appointed rooms are only surpassed by the extraordinary staff who are welcoming and attentive. We look forward to returning to this sanctuary in Cape Town.

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.
