The hotel itself is not bad. The staff was okay but nothing extraordinary for a five star accommodation. Maybe our standards were skewed after staying in some quality game lodges in the preserves where the staff are considerably more attentive.
Breakfasts were good, dinners offered few vegetarian options. So other than the night we arrived, we ate dinners in Cape Town.
This gets at the main problem with the Twelve Apostles: Location. It is in a preserve several miles south of Camp’s Bay — i.e., “in the middle of nowhere” which is great for a retreat, but not great as a tourist home base. We got to know the roads into and out of Cape Town well, including which had construction delays in the mornings and evenings — but would have far preferred a place in town. Even if it wasn’t five stars in town, and or cost a bit more, it would be been more convenient. Day trips were relatively easy from either place (our location or Cape Town).
So if you are looking to "get away from it all" this is not a bad choice. But if you are planning to be a Cape Town tourist, I cannot recommend this place based on the location.
