The Last Word Long Beach
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Kommetjie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 October 2010

We stayed at the Long Beach for 4 nights at the beginning of our holiday, and couldn't have chosen a more tranquil place to relax. We were welcomed with a cold drink on the terrace which overlooks the silver sand dunes of Kommetjie Bay, propped up by Table Mountain in the background, then shown to our room. The beautiful open-plan suite was spacious and airy, tastefully decorated in mellow colours that complimented the natural landscape, and the olive & honey cosmetics provided in the ample bathroom were lovely to use.

The staff we met (Haylee, Jennifer and Zel) could not have been more accommodating. They were attentive, friendly and very helpful with suggestions, routes and information about the Cape Peninsula. We chose to have breakfast (a leisurely affair) on the terrace watching seabirds and listening to the surf, but could have eaten in the laid-back dining room or been served in our suite. Wherever you take it, breakfast is well worth getting up for!

Although the hotel doesn't generally offer dinner, by prior arrangement they can organise a local chef to prepare a meal for you. We opted to eat in the first night, planning to eat out after that, but the food was so delicious that we ate at the Long Beach every night! Joan, our chef, who cooks like an angel, offered innovative top-quality cuisine and also introduced us to several traditional South African favourites. Each plate was perfectly cooked and presented - each plate went back to the kitchen clean; weight-watchers, beware!

I'd happily recommend the Long Beach to anyone: discreet friendly service, sumptious food, beautiful surroundings - total relaxation is guaranteed.

Just returned from an idyllic stay at the Long Beach and it was the most chilled and comfortable i've ever felt in such a small hotel. Fantastic service that was discreet and perfectly judged makes you feel so relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to all the staff for an amazing time and for helping to make the wedding such a great event.

We stayed here for 3 nights and can honestly say it is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot!). Our suites (one for us and one for our children) were both sumptious and the view of the beach, ocean and mountains beyond were breathtaking. When you added in the most fantastic attentiveness, care and thoughtfulness of the staff, this small boutique hotel without doubt exceeds its 5* rating. Help yourself to the bar, candles, rose petals and champagne in our room on the first night, booking of restaurants, playing cards with the children, fantastic breakfasts ..... simply wonderful.

A fantasticly beautiful little gem of a hotel hidden away from the hustle and bustle. This is a stunning hotel set on the coast that just screams paradise to you. the staff were more than helpful and nothing was too much trouble. It could be classed as being in the middle of nowhere so having a car would be very useful as taxi's or the hotel chauffeur can be very expensive but the hotel itself is a gem. Stunning views of the beach from every room. We stayed here for the wedding of two dear friends and the whole setting was just perfect. Be wary of the very COLD sea though.
A stunning location with amazing staff.

Welcome to a little piece of paradise! The Last Word Long Beach is situated right on Long Beach and has absolutely breathtaking views of the beach stretching from Kommetjie and Noordhoek all the way to Chapman’s Peak and Hout Bay. This boutique hotel truly lives up to its 5 Stars and we could not have asked for more. On arrival we were warmly greeted and offered complimentary drinks all afternoon. My partner and I indulged in some delicious champagne cocktails whilst sitting on the deck and watching the surfers in the sea. It was the most relaxing afternoon. Once we were ready to retire to our room we were very impressed with the beautiful open-plan suite that was tastefully decorated in perfect harmony with its seaside location. The suite was spacious and modern and we had a large private balcony with a sea view. It really was spectacular. We had friends visit us to watch the game and they were too treated like royalty by the staff and made to feel very welcome. This is one of the most beautiful hotels I’ve stayed in with some of the best customer service to match. A big thanks to Hayley for making our stay so wonderful!

I'd firstly like to say that I am in two minds about stating just how brilliant this place is because I would like to save it for myself !

What can I say. We (my partner and I) chose the Long Beach to tie the knot and a better place we could not have chosen.
From the organisation of the day, the service, the location, the meal, the wine and most of all the company and freindliness of the staff is second to none.
A different pudding on the bed every night was great for the soul but not too good for the waistline !
The Long Beach organised a post wedding meal for us and our guests with superb wine and fantastic food, we were in heaven.

I cannot rate this place highly enough.

There are only six rooms in this boutique hotel and this gives the change to experience how a hotel should be run. The staff (Haylee, Jen, Zet, David and all the rest of the staff) should feel very proud of themselves because they are the epitomy of hospitality.

The location is superb, far enough out of everything to be quiet and close enough to get everything should you want to. Its about 45 min drive from Cape Town centre and takes about 25-30 mins to drive to Simonstown, False bay, Cape point etc. We had an experience with a Baboon and all i can say is make sure your car doors are locked !

Theres a very laid back feeling here and it seems that nothing is too much trouble. Thats what you need when you are on holiday.

Anyway, we both loved it and will definately return and it is one of a handful of places which i would recommend to my best friend and thats saying something.


Well done all at The long beach. xx

This is absolutely lovely quiet hotel with 6 suites with unbelievable views; lovely breakfast, unlimted drinks and snacks. The service was outstanding. I was hiding presents for my son's 21 birthday and the manager actually wrapped them for me! Would return in a heartbeat
