Absolutely beautiful. The views are priceless, the beach is with white sand and great for daily walks. The service is amazing. Kim the manager is the most accommodating person who makes sure all your needs are met. Kim is amazing with kids. The Last Word alongside Kim makes this stay one to remember. The reason for missing a star is only because some maintenance is needed. I would come back here any day.

Located right on the beach, Last Word Longbeach is a 6 bedroom gem in a very tranquil setting. The rooms are quite spacious and clean with bathroom and seating area. The view from the upstairs rooms will undoubtedly be better as the bottom views are slightly impeded by sand dunes, we could however still see ocean from bed 😉. Breakfast and 3-course dinner was included and the staff did go the extra mile for our dietary requirements. Smoked salmon for breakfast and halal meat was arranged prior to check-in. On arrival we chose our menu for the two night stay. My suggestion would be to make guests aware to choose their menu for their entire stay or early the next day for preparation purposes, because we did get the same delicious dessert both nights since we didn't indicate anything different. Slight miscommunication here. The complimentary drinks and ample in-room bottled water was much appreciated! The location is amazing! Out the hotel gate you turn right and you are literally on a long, clean beach. Wonderful for walks, runs or just to relax on your hotel beach towel. Being the start of winter and the Atlantic ocean, the water was quite cold, but it appeared perfect for surfers and some brave swimmers. The beach is pet friendly and you might even make a few furry friends yourself. The Slankop lighthouse is an approximate 2km walk from the hotel, along a boardwalk bordering the sea with plenty of seating benches along the way. Thank you to Fanie and the team for a wonderful stay!

Once again, an absolutely superb experience at The Last Word, Long Beach! We simply cannot get enough of this special place. This trip was slightly different to our usual romantic getaway - a bunch of mates celebrated a combined birthday and farewell. The beautiful view, luxury accommodation, delicious food and discreet top class service, were as consistent as always - and we had the party of a lifetime! Thank you to the wonderful team at The Last Word for all you did to make this such a goodie for the memory bank! We just loved it ... and thanks too, for always getting my eggs perfectly right! 😜

We stayed at this magnificent hotel yet again, and as always, loved every minute. This time we stayed in one of the upstairs suites... the view is simply incomparable. Looking onto the Hout Bay Sentinel across the bay. I don't think there are many hotels in the world that can match that vista! As usual, the service was friendly without being intrusive. The rooms are impeccably clean and stylish. The bed is probably the most comfortable I have slept in (and with those views as mentioned above - I had trouble removing myself from the bed!). Delicious meals served on the terrace. The Last Word Long Beach is an escape and a real tonic for the soul. Thank you to Fanie and team for another memorable stay.
