Going to The Last Word Constantia is like visiting the home of a family friend. Lovely suburb of Cape Town. Located near some of the oldest vineyards in South Africa with really good dining options (e.g., Steenberg). The front office team members, Tess and Sam, are tops and were instrumental to making my stay excellent.

This is a lovely hotel with beautiful gardens, tasteful bedrooms and a wonderful sitting room overlooking the pool. Managers Sam and Tessa provide a very personal level of service and the staff are extremely polite and helpful. We especially loved the smiling ladies who serve breakfast! We really enjoyed our stay here and very much hope to return.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Extensive mini bar was free, and the hotel arranged transport to and from our evening restaurant meal. There was a large pool, and a small pool attached to our room, which was huge. We stayed only one night, but a longer stay would be relaxing. Recommended

It is impossible to explain how an Oasis of a Hotel can be found behind a very ordinary looking position on the Spanschemat River Road in Constantia. However, once inside the enclosed area of the Hotel you enter into a beautiful mixture of luxury, floral beauty, and tranquility which is a delight to enjoy. The three days we spent there,... More

All the boutique hotels in The Last Word group are magnificent and special. But, this property was outstanding. The grounds, the rooms, the overall ambiance, and the helpfulness of Tess and Sam were just terrific. The setting is not to be believed and a joy to come back to after a hard day of sightseeing.
