"Splendid if a bit over the top!"
We had been here for dinner a few years back but came for coffee as passing by. Liveried staff and plush surroundings all add to the 'drama'. A lovely view of the sea across a busyish but nothing exceptional for the area. It is an ' experience' with its lovely paintings ,decor & unusual ceiling fans! Oh & great coffee & attentive staff.
"Great by Location"
Excellent position from the drinks deck. The hotel stands by itself, sandwiched between the ocean and Victoria Drive and the twelve apostles section of the Table Mtn naitonal park behind it. they must have walking trails. And across the road, at either the tiny 'Cosy Bay' or SANP 'Oudekraal' beach/pinic facility are phenomenal beach areas. This was over five years ago, but I know what I'm about to mention hasn't changed; I found the rooms small for their value, and with no view to speak of; at least the room I was staying in as media - which I found a strange decision, as surely they'd want to sell themselves as they were getting free editorial. The Oyster Box rooms (sister hotel) in KZN are also uncomfortably small, however the the third hotel in the Red Carnation grouping, Bushmanskloof is excellent.
"A piece of heaven on earth🍸"
12 Apostles Cape Town. Not only world renowned... how does anyone put into words the magnificent experience of such awesome, spectacular views.... we love the red Carnations Hotels. We've done the Oyster Box clearly no comparison to the Oyster Box Durban.. Hospitality at the 12 Apostles was a complete luxurious beautiful treat and a big thank you to Alex you were amazing. I loved everything about this treasure the 12 Apostles only thing I can or can complain about is the breakfast plates were a bit greasy or I'd say needs to be washed and dried properly. 12 Apostles a 9 the Oyster Box we give you a big fat 10. Thank you Carnation Hotels. Hoping we'll do the next one soon. Mrs Beatrice you make our dreams a reality. You've given us a piece of Heaven on earth👏💫 A lifetime of treasured memories🍸🥂💫
"Would love to give 5 but worst internet ever "
Nice Room with exceptional bathroom, sweet bedding, large balcony with sea and mountain views. Food is superb though reserving of tables is a major challenge. No special dinner or bar reservations for hotel guests. We were promised a table for 8 pm and occupied when arrived at 755. Manager promised they were about to leave and we could have as reserved. Well 2 1/2 hours later as we departed they were still ensconced at that table. We took drinks and dinner at the bar and food and drinks A+ and service A+. Just don't expect a table as reserved and promised. The internet is a JOKE. Promised a fix three times and that fixed never arrived. Told a router put in our room. That was not true. It's 2017 and internet is a must for most though not a priority to management here. Even the biz center has PC's from circa 2005! Slow. Most of the guests come here for leisure but hotel should know some of us still have work responsibilities far from home.
One of those old grand hotels that is timeless yet so beautiful. The view is definitely breathtaking. The spa was one of the highlights of my stay. The hotel is away from all the vibe in camps bay but near enough to enjoy
