Reviewed 22 March 2016

We have visited this boutique hotel on several occasions (they are actually one of three bearing the Last Word names....Franschhoek and Long Beach being the others) and it always exceeds expectations. Unfortunately it seems it has so many recommendations that you have to be quick to get a room in high season. Even this month they were fully booked..... that...

Indeed - good advice to book early as we fill up during high season! Thank you for your honest words about our intimate hotel and for recommending that others stay as well. Please join us again if you're in Cape Town. Many thanks The Last Word.

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.

Our first visit to a Last Word Guest House, this was a completely unexpected Oasis of peace and calm.

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,...

We stayed at all three of the Last Word and Constantia was far and away the best. The garden area, the rooms and the general ambiance are first class. The manager Tess was exceptional and we were really well looked after.
