“superb service, breathtaking views. Unforgettable.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2012

The most superb location, with jaw dropping views and the friendliest staff ever.
I will certainly have to go back!
Breakfast is the best ever.
Strolls on the beach are unforgettable.
Good base-camp for Cape Town. It's an easy and stunning 40 min drive to the city. But it's also a superb starting point to go to Cape Point or to Kalk Bay.

Room Tip: they are all superb.

Warm greeting as we walked through the door, followed by a truly restful stay. The attention to detail is superb (particularly the dessert left on our bed as part of the turn down:) )! Thanks to all the very kind and attentive hosts. We certainly hope to come back and try the other Last Word hotels!

We stayed four nights at this wonderful place and wanted to stay longer. The location is superb and the hotel itself with their super attentive staff make it one of the finest places we have stayed.
You could not wish for more.

Room Tip: Rooms four and five are the stars.

We had great expectations to this property and we were not disappointed. The location is fantastic as it's right on the beautiful beach. The surroundings are breathtaking with the turquoise sea and the mountains beyond. We stayed here in the spring but are planning to return for a summer break. The rooms aren't ultra luxurious but very nicely appointed and sparkling clean. Very comfy beds too. The hotel can arrange excursions and we did the wine tour which was fantastic! Highly recommend this. The food offers are limited, a choice of meat and fish for dinner, but tasty. The minibar is free which is a nice touch. For a great dinner I recommend the foodbarn. The staff arranged this for us including the transfer. The best thing about this place is the service. Its seemless but personal at the same time. Hence the homey feel. Really loved this place and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: If you want uninterrupted sea views book on the second floor. For direct pool and beach access book...

We visited The L W Long Beach in October 2011 as we were staying at a sister hotel in Camps Bay. We said at the time that we'd love to stay and so a year later, here we are. A very warm welcome from the team, they are all so friendly. Great location right on the beach, so good to wake up to the sound of the waves. Great beach walks to the wreck one way and the lighthouse the other. Tasty breakfast each day to get you off to a good start and some good recommendations for local restaurants. Hayley, Jen, Joan, Leo and the team are great hosts. Thank you for a great stay, we will be back!

We spend two nights at this hotel in September 2012. The hotel is on the beach. On the website it advertises itself as a boutique and intimate hotel. Both claims are very true; it is intimate (six rooms) and the staff makes you really feel at home. They go the extra mile to enable you to relax and try to anticipate your wishes. What we always like is that, when you arrive, tea or some other refreshment is offered. However this was done throughout our stay whenever we returned from a trip or a walk on the beach. We stayed in room 4 which is large and has a fine view from the balcony. We had a very good dinner and were able to choose what we would like to eat.

The only thing we were not sure about was the warm water supply. It seemed to go colder after a bath and a shower and we mentioned this to the attentive manager.

Room Tip: the rooms on the upper level have a good view on the ocean

This is a good hotel if you want a room with a view (I recommend suite 5) where you can sit and read a book while watching the ocean. The staff is very friendly and dedicated. The beach was not busy at all. The only catch is that the ocean is very cold, so it’s not really ideal for a swimming holiday. Also: The bottom rooms have a blocked view of the ocean, so pick a top room if you want a room with a view. The hotel itself is a house that has been converted into a hotel and only has 6 rooms. Therefore it is not cluttered with people. The hotel itself is located far from the Cape Town city centre, making it ideal for a "do nothing" holiday.

Dear Mr Coetser, thanks so much for your comments and advice and you're 100% percent right, the sea at Long beach can get very chilly at times. Hopefully next time it'll be a little warmer when you join us for another relaxing getaway.
