The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa
Ranked #4 of 12 Hotels in Camps Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Best location in all of Cape Town - a stone's throw from the water, 5 mins from the 'California' of Cape Town at Camps Bay and Clifton, 15 mins to the City and Waterfront, at the foot of the mountains - attentive and professional staff, very spacious and comfortable rooms, beautiful restaurants and bar area with unmatched sunset views across the ocean - the live singer Jeanie Oliver would give Sade a run for her money - the food is amazing... I can't say enough, make the budget fit because if sun, sea, sand, shopping, mountains and time out is your thing, you will not be disappointed :)

Dear Trip Advisor Reviewer,

We are delighted to receive a review from you indicating the enjoyable time you had at The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa.

At our beautiful hotel guests can enjoy the best of both worlds - the tranquillity and pristine natural beauty surrounding the hotel, with Table Mountain National Park and the Atlantic Ocean Marine Reserve as backdrop. The hourly, complimentary shuttle service between the Hotel, Camps Bay and the V&A Waterfront allows guests easy access to both Camps Bay and Waterfront Restaurants.

I was delighted to read that we delivered a service that met your expectations. We have a very dedicated team of people who works incredibly hard and who takes great pride in consistently offering an exceptional experience to our guests.

Please note that the same level of care is taken to ensure a similar memorable experience at our other properties Bushman’s Kloof and The Oyster Box which form part of the wider Red Carnation Family.

The team at The Twelve Apostles looks forward to your next visit.

Warm Regards,

Horst W. Frehse
General Manager

I spent 2 nights at the Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa in Cape Town last July & had a very good experience with my family. I highly recommend this hotel. My husband had a room and our 3 kids were in a separate room next door. The rooms were very comfortable & with a beautiful ocean view. We enjoyed watching the sunset. The service is fantastic.
We all particularly liked to start the day with the amazing breakfast buffet.
The fitness room could use a little upgrade but overall a great hotel if you are looking for one in Cape Town.

I have had the best stay of my life at the Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa. They have the best service I have ever experienced.

I gave them an itinerary of the way I wanted the weekend to go, and they made sure everything went according to my plans. It was the most amazing experience I have ever had.

The Spa treatments was relaxing and amazing. The food was delicious, and so well made. Each dish was well balanced in taste and look. The rooms was luxurious and comfortable. And the grounds around the place was well kept and the view was absolutely breathtaking!

All in all, it was the best well rounded stay I have ever had at any hotel. It was so good, I just had to post a review about it.

Room Tip: Rooms that have a sea view is the best, waking up while looking at the sea is absolutely worth it.

Great location, great room, and wonderful, attentive staff. The Azure Restaurant was very cozy with excellent food and a good wine list containing some very good and reasonably priced South African wines. I would highly recommend both the hotel and restaurant

I personally find the food at the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa hit and miss.. It can be lovely one day & not great at all the following week... However for a sundowner or a view to die for then this is the place to be! Service can be slow but the staff are so friendly and accommodating and that aside once you have a drink in hand all you have to do is enjoy the beautiful views and complimentary snacks! Situated on one of the most scenic drives in Cape Town this is a venue you do not want to miss!

This is my favorite hotel in Cape Town. Very friendly staff and beautiful views. Breakfast is the highlight, you will not find better anywhere. Leopard Lounge, nice place to relax. Rooms are top notch. Wife and myself made use of the Spa which was great. This was our 5th visit to the 12 Apostles and we also got married here two years ago. I will always return.

Room Tip: Ocean facing room with a balcony. Superb.
