Situated in the Cape’s oldest and most beautiful wine valley, The Last Word Constantia is close to seven of South Africa’s top wine estates and many internationally celebrated restaurants. Great attention is paid to peace and tranquility. An inviting sunken swimming pool and tanning deck is the focal point of the magnificently manicured garden with rolling lawns, vibrant colours and exquisite mountain views. The lounges, dining area and sun patios all open onto the garden.

Our pool suite was absolutely quiet and very spacious. We stayed here after our Tuinroute trip and before our stay on the busy V&A Waterfront. This cosy hotel is a comfortable and green oasis 15 km outside Cape Town and about the same distance to Muizenberg beach and Kalk Bay harbour. Tess was able to create a friendly relation with a personal touch yet without being obtrusive. A sumptuous buffet breakfast with plenty of choice of fruits, cold cuts and hot dishes was served by the cheerful ladies. One suggestion: enjoy a gastronomic dinner at the Cellars-Hohenort, north of Constantia.

Our experience at Last Word Constantia was faultless.
The staff go beyond to make you feel welcome and well taken care of, while the size and scale of the rooms, bathrooms and views are a very rare find!
But it is the staff at this property that make the experience so very special!
Tess arranged for us to be collected from the airport by the Last Word car and for our hire car to be waiting for us at the hotel, so we didn't have to have the stress of collecting a car at the airport. When we returned from dinner that evening she had also provided information and left guide books with tabs on our bed for the best self-guided routes up Table Mountain the next morning. When our plans changed she also rearranged our restaurant bookings and made everything SO easy! It is exactly this kind of service and care that takes the stress out of travelling abroad.
The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and the morning we climbed Table Mountain we were sent off with a packed box of muffins and fruit.
Special thanks too to John for his enthusiasm and energy.
Last Word Constantia has a dream team of staff which is hard to come by in hospitality these days... Thank you!

We stayed at The Last Word for 3 nights as we needed to find accommodation following the UK Government adding South Africa to the red list and as a result we found ourselves stranded.

The rooms were really spacious, lovely lounge area and fantastic bathroom (esp the shower). The hotel provides a fantastic breakfast being a mix of cereals, cold meats and cheeses and then you can order a cooked breakfast if you would like (and still have room......we never did !).

Our room had a lovely patio area which then leads into the gardens as well as a sizeable pool. The hotel is also really well located for the many wineries in Constantia and yo can walk to the new shopping emporium (takes less than 10mins).

We really enjoyed our stay and can't thank Tess, Sam & John enough for the way they looked after us during what was a particularly stressful time.

An unexpected gem which we would recommend to anyone.

We loved our 3 night stay at Last Word Constantia in Cape Town's wine country. The staff was exceptionally hospitable. Every staff member went out of their way to check on our stay, to offer suggestions to enjoy Cape Town, and took care of some logics for us from reservations to laundry. The property was gorgeous and our room was so spacious and perfect for our stay. They thought of everything to make our stay lovely. We loved our breakfast each morning as well. The property was located in a great central location to exploring so much of what Cape Town has to offer.

We were delayed out of London by 22 hours, and the hotel moved our reservation by a night without question, thus avoiding us a nights payment without being there. We landed very early and did not think we would be able to access the room, but the hotel not only kindly gave us the room first thing in the morning but also set up the most amazing breakfast in our room. Having been put in a dump of a hotel for the delay at Heathrow, it was absolute heaven to walk into Last Word. The room was gorgeous, spacious, and with beautiful views of our little pool and terrace. The terraces around the main pool and the breakfast area are just delightful, the staff are amazing, and I cannot rate the breakfasts too highly, we were blown away. Would highly recommend and we will definitely be back!

I have travelled extensively in the Western Cape area this hotel is the best place I have ever stayed. The family room really exceeded my expectations and I was shocked at how much they consider so much about our children's needs. The room was massive with a separate 'play lounge 'for the children off the main bedroom area. It was literally a beautiful space kitted out with TV, massive been bags, games console, toys, books and a separate TV. There was a kings size bed in the main bedroom with TV and then a separate twin room with a TV and large dressing room. Two large bathrooms with large walk in showers and deep baths with two separate toilets. Also all their products were from Healing Earth so they are really considering the environment whilst still keeping it 5 star and luxurious.
The fridge in the room was fully stocked and the bar area down stairs had every drink you could think of so we were spoilt for choice. The swimming pool was large with lots of floats and sunbeds and the garden was a oasis of trees and beautiful flowers. The breakfast was 5 stars with lots of choice

Fantastic experience and the staff were kind and genuine.
Thank you!

What a fantastic place. We stayed in a fabulous suite, the gardens are superb and the breakfasts excellent - both hot and cold options. Add a free bar, a very comfortable bed and home-made afternoon cake every day and what's not to like?

But that's not only what makes this place special. It is the staff and the whole ethos of the organisation. Every one of them, and nothing is too much trouble. In a most unassuming way they are so attentive, kind and genuinely interested in making your stay in South Africa as enjoyable as possible.

We left feeling as if we were more like family than guests, such was the care and kindness we experienced. Truly not something we have had anywhere else in our many travels. Thank you.

From the moment we were greeted by Sam Phiri and offered a pot of tea whilst our luggage was taken to the room we knew we were in for a wonderful experience. If Sam's friendliness wasn't already enough to satisfy every expectation Tess Ellis-Brown made us feel part of her hotel family and a treasured house guest in the very best traditions and finest houses. Our room, number five, was a delight, huge by any standards with a lounge area, a bed inducing deep slumber and a delightful walled patio to chill in. The gardens and pool were also spectacular and added to the ambience. It be remiss not to mention; Jonny "Walker" Banda's whose smile and personality are surely his greatest asset, the exuberant and cherished ladies who made breakfast time everyday a treat and also thank you Neville the hotel's wonderful chauffeur who waved us Au Revoir at the airport. More than that my wife's birthday was remembered by Tess and her team and their generosity much appreciated . We will doubtless return and of course will recommend 'The Last Word Constantia" to anyone and everyone who even mentions visiting Cape Town! I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel to anyone intent on relaxing when visiting Cape Town but its always the people who make memories and we have left with so many wonderful and new found friends. We found South Africa to be blessed by its friendliness and we wish the nation every success in years to come. God bless all.

We had a lovely stay here as we finished our touring holiday in South Africa. The welcome was warm , the accommodation spacious and beautifully presented. The gardens are beautifully maintained with both a pool area and a grassy area with. seating.
Breakfasts were superb with a lovely fruit platter,a choice of fresh breads, croissants and juices. These are followed by a wide range of cooked meals.
The hotel provides lovely wines and each night there is a tasty treat in one’s pillow.
Tess, the manager was really helpful and we were also well looked after by Gray.
We would like to visit this lovely hotel again.

Fabulous one night stay (wish was longer) after arriving from London. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating and the suite was lovely. Being able to walk through to a restaurant called Peddlars next door (not part of hotel) for dinner was just really easy, as there is a secure gate to the hotel. We will most definitely be back!
