My wife and I needed a convenient place to stay for 2 nights while house hunting in the Constantia area. We chose The Last Word based on extensive online searching. Making the reservation was a little difficult, but that is because I wanted to ask some questions via email before booking. This exchange took more time than I had hoped...

Dear Peter, All of us at The Last Word are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. At present they are putting fiber optic cabling in to the Constantia area so very shortly the local internet speeds should be exponentially faster. We hope to have you back soon to experience this. The Last Word team

We have been to this hotel on several occasions and it always has that same feeling, which we call homeliness. Like all Last Word Hotels, it is tucked away off a main road and has splendid decor and gardens. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The suites are large and luxurious. At night you get "surprises" on your bed...

We stayed here for two nights, it was absolute bliss. Our bathroom was bigger than our lounge at home with the biggest bath I have ever seen.

We stayed here for three nights in room 4 which I think is a suite. It was certainly big enough for a suite. We had booked an elegant double room through our travel company and I think we were given a complimentary upgrade? Anyway, Sam was the manager on duty for the majority of our stay and I must say...
