Reviewed 11 November 2013

We spent two amazing nights here!! The staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and made us feel truly spoilt and relaxed. The rooms are just out of this world with an understated luxury right on the beach. The view is breathtaking and this will be a weekend we will always remember.

The team here were very friendly and helpful during our stay.

We were lucky enough to be able to sit and relax in the sun while watching whales in the bay right in front of the hotel. Even without the whales, it's a beautiful view.

As with other Last Word hotels you have the complimentary hotel bar & you receive a little desert when the bed is turned down.

The staff made helpful tips for restaurants, organising booking as needed and were generally very helpful and friendly.

The breakfast was very nice. They were very attentive to us, making sure they cooked our eggs perfectly and even going so far as to cook special croissants for us which were less cooked than normal. My wife is gluten free but they couldn't source gluten free bread the first day but instead made the effort to get in oysters (having picked up on something my wife had mentioned in a story when we arrived!).

The room was very well presented and comfortable. Would highly recommend a stay here.

We stayed here at the end of a three week trip to the Cape. The accommodation was right on the beach and the views were simply stunning. The property is superb, rooms large and had everything you need (even sun hats and beach wraps). We were welcomed by all the staff, provided with everything we needed, including great advice on where to go and where to eat from Jennifer. Great location for southern peninsula and airport, we visited Cape Point, Boulders Beach, Simons Town, the coast, Cape Point vineyards and two local farms in one day. The staff were amazing. On our final night we wanted to eat in as the location was so romantic and the views so beautiful. The meal was one of the best we had tasted, cooked by Joan, who also created lovely breakfasts, it was just perfect.

Spent 3 nights here at start of holiday. What better way to relax into holiday mode. Small, intimate, superb location (we had room facing on to beach). Warm welcome from all of staff, lovely little extras. Well worth whatever they want to charge

This small hotel offers a highly personalised experience under the effective oversight of Jenny and her wonderful team. We loved the place and the location, the rooms were very tasteful, the location great for beach walks. The food was also great, we booked a dinner at the hotel for one night and it was exceptionally good value. Breakfasts were superb as well. Every staff member was friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. We can't wait to go back and it made a really nice change from larger chain hotels in Capetown.

Room Tip: The two rooms upstairs have better views of the sea.

We recently spent the long weekend with our two good friends from the States. Once again we had a fantastic stay with the Last Word group, our previous one was in Constantia. The hotel is perfectly located right on the beach with amazing views of Hout Bay, Chapman's Peak Drive, etc. Special thanks go to Fanie who looked after our every need and made great recommendations for dinner reservations. Awesome breakfasts with lovely sea views awaited us every morning. The rooms are well appointed with lovely sea views, and stunning walks on the beach.

We had 4 amazing days at The last Word Long Beach. I have now found a second home and new friends. This amazing boutique hotel right on Long Beach has only 5 rooms. All very.large spacious and all sea views. 4 days was too short. As it is so boutique you really do get to know all the staff. I could not have asked for a more friendly and warm welcome. There is an open bar to help yourself to which a great selection. The breakfast was the best of my whole SA trip. I did not think. There were any difference between one omelette and the next. Trust me there is. Please come to this beautiful hotel. Chill enjoy the area. Good company. I shall be back to visit my new family thank you Jen for making it so special. To Haylee Farnie, Leo and the girls. You all made our stay very special. Hope fully mum will be with us too.
