"One night stay"
We had been recommended to stay here as we only had one night and this was 'The best' hotel and we weren't disappointed. We drove straight to the front door of the car park and the porter was there in an instant to take our bags, the check in staff were so friendly and welcoming and the room was light and airy, we were asked if we wanted a table in the restaurant but we decided on a lighter snack in the leopard bar, which was great! We had been on safari so sitting in what was like a safari lodge was brilliant! Well equipped bathroom full of wonderful toiletries and a very clean and compact bedroom which was turned down while we are in the bar. Breakfast was on the floor below ours in a super room with balcony for nice weather and the breakfast was amazing, even champagne and oysters! The service was also extremely good. Check out was efficient and again very friendly staff, all in all an excellent one night and would recommend to anyone wanting luxury
"Cannot rave more about this Establishment"
From beginning to end, we were looked after like royalty. From asking for twin beds, because I was travelling with my son, to parking my car each and every time, and we drove up and down a lot, to having a cinema on the premises which not only has the greatest movies, but a private collection, to finding a spot at the spa for us when it really was full - and coming to pool side to give us the good news. I can't say enough about the Management, Staff of all levels. Highly recommended and the reason we have never stayed before was cause it seemed to far out - it is not - the drive is easy and they, of course, have a shuttle in and out to the V & A - I just can't think of all the great extras - the wonderful helpfulness and good restaurants on site too boot with a lovely high tea as well. Truly a wonderful stay
"What a wonderful place to stay"
We stayed for our 25th Wedding Anniversary, we were welcomed with congratulations, wine in the room and a cake, at the evening meal the staff all offered congratulations and what a display when they poured water in a jug and a mist spread over the table making it very special. Staff are attentive and pleasant and the whole hotel works away very quietly in the background to make it a special place to be. As for the views from terrace - who can offer whales surfacing in sight of the bar !
"More of the same... and then some"
For ten years my wife and I have been staying in the Twelve Apostles, mostly during our Anniversary week-ends and mostly as a couples getaway. This time though we took the kids... We are still impressed with the facilities, amenities and service, but we were very surprised at the great lengths the hotel staff would go to so that the kids would be well taken care of and happy. Things like a VIP card with free ice cream, animated movies to watch on the in room DVD system and bowls of sweets, pop corn and milkshakes kept them entertained. As a matter of fact, when we did travel to some of the sites like the V&A Waterfront they kept asking us "How long before we go back to the hotel" My wife is pregnant with our third child with low energy levels and we did spend quite some time in the hotel room in the lap of luxury. On our final night we ordered in and had the baby rotisserie chicken with mash and vegetables. I might be a typical South African male with a strong affinity for for red meat but that chicken was the best meal I've had in years - and the wife agreed. The Twelve Apostles didn't become one of the top rated hotel by standing out in any one particular aspect, instead they seem to do all the little things right. The best part is I have to travel less than 100km to visit my favourite hotel in the world and I've been across the globe many times. It just amazes me that they can get it right every time and keep getting better at what they do. I can not wait for the next visit... no way I'll get away with leaving the kids at home though!
"Not a luxury hotel"
With all apologies to motel 6. The 12 apostles motel had the nerve to schedule loud parties next to our ocean view suite and they did not have the courtesy to invite us or move us to a different suite. Although the cheetah room was nice and the manager attentive, the other management staff should find work not in the hospitality industry. The 1300/n suite needs upgrading, new rugs and real flat screen tv's. Marriott courtyard rooms are better equipped and more spacious. The "gourmet" restaurant azure was something but certainly not gourmet, pedestrian perhaps, barely edible i suppose but not gourmet. All in all don't waste your time or money. If you need a first class hotel in capetown the one and only will better suite your needs.
