This is a stunning hotel. The views are breathtaking and the staff is top notch. It's an upscale and eclectic hotel. It has sweeping views of the mountains and the sea. It is set a bit from Cape Town but they have a free shuttle that will take you in to town. We absolutely LOVED our stay!

Fancied a treat day so we booked massages and pedicure. The place is a palace inside with great facilities and lovely staff! If you fancy a treatment on your holiday then this is the place.

Mountain peaks all in a row over looking the valley and waterfront. Huge rocky cliffs surrounding the area, nice photo ops.

However, our group decided sitting outside because of the view. In addition, the manager together with his servers were very congenial. Whenever we return to Cape Town we will definitely revisit...

The folklore behind these structures is fascinating even down to the fact that there are actually more than twelve apostles in evidence.

The Twelve Apostles Mountain range faces the Atlantic Coast of the Cape Peninsula.The name 12 Apostles is actually a misnomer as there are actually 17 buttresses and only "JUDAS PEAK" near Hout Bay is named after a Apostle .These Mountains are beautifully visible along the drive on Victoria road in Cape Town towering over camp Bay..Hiking along 12 Apostle Mountain...
