This is one hotel I would return to, the staff could not do enough for you and were always around to help should you need it. Our room didn't face the sea but was sunny, airy and very pleasant. The dining areas and bars were wonderful and made it very difficult to go out and dine any where else. The view from the terrace was beautiful. The food was divine and very reasonably priced. I felt the hotel was in a great position to get to all the attractions.
We moved onto Mauritius from here and I was very sorry to leave.

The views from this hotel are simply spectacular - ocean to one side and mountains to the other. We were there for a friend's wedding and it was certainly an amazing backdrop for a special occasion. The staff were all lovely and so friendly. Nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble. We had a mountain facing room and would definitely opt for the same again though certainly no denying that the ocean facing rooms have a gorgeous view to wake to! Some beautiful areas for sitting in and just relaxing and letting time pass. My husband had a lovely lunch in the Leopard Lounge while I was busy getting my bridesmaid dress on ready for the wedding! This was our first stay but we won't hesitate to go back.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room to be had in this hotel!

Dear Trip Advisor Reviewer,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Twelve Apostles hotel & Spa with our potential future guests.

You mention 3 of our most priced attributes which only works because of the dedication of our staff and the effort they put in to make every guest feel at home.

We are very lucky to be situated in the Table Mountain Nature reserve with views of the Twelve Apostle Mountains and Atlantic Ocean a mere 15 minutes from the city centre which we made accessible by offering a complimentary shuttle from 08h00 – 21h30 on a daily basis.

We hope to welcome you back very soon.

With warm regards

I visited The Twelve Apostles during a recent visit to Cape Town. The hotel is tucked away in the mountains just past Camps Bay and enjoys the most wonderful views. The staff were incredibly accommodating and the Head Concierge, Masood Sadulla, went far beyond my expectations. With very short notice he arranged a wonderful afternoon in the spa, which is exceptional! The outdoor pool enjoys breathtaking views of the mountains and ocean and is a great spot to watch the sunset. The Azure restaurant has a great ambience, bustling with visitors and locals alike; a great testament to the excellent food. We celebrated a 60th birthday at Azure and the staff far surpassed our expectations arranging a wonderful dinner, a cake and a surprise bottle of champagne to take home! All in all the hotel and team could not have done any better!! Will definitely return.

Dear Trip Advisor Reviewer,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Twelve Apostles hotel & Spa with our potential future guests.

Wonderful to read your comments and in particular your favourable feedback on Masood my Head Concierge. His passion to please every guest that walks into our doors is enviable and something all our staff strive towards.

We are very fortunate that the local Cape Town residents also love the Azure and Leopard Bar which creates a wonderful atmosphere in the venues. We really to appreciate all the support we get from all.

Special celebrations is what we are all about and we are always looking out for them to ensure we create great memories.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future for another memorable experience.

With warm regards

This great hotel is tucked in between the mountains and the sea with fabulous vistas all around. The sunsets from the balcony at the Leopard Bar is stunning but arrive early to get a seat. The reception is warm and friendly. The rooms are all excellent but the sea facing ones are breath taking. Book a massage in the gazebo on the mountain slope to really unwind.

Dear Trip Advisor Reviewer,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Twelve Apostles hotel & Spa with our potential future guests.

We are indeed very lucky to have such great uninterrupted views all around the hotel. The Leopard Bar is arguably the best place for great sunset cocktails with the sun setting right in front of the hotel. We do not reserve any seats on the balcony due to the high demand and would most definitely recommend arriving early to guarantee your seat.

I am glad that you also experienced our warm and genuinely friendly reception which we pride ourselves on very much.

Our mountain gazebo’s are very unique and a must when staying with us. No better way to unwind and relax in nature than in one of these gazebo’s.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future.

With warm regards

Twelve Apostles was a wonderful choice by Lion World Travel for our stay near Cape Town. Gorgeous property, excellent dining, & amazing views of the mountains, ocean, and sunset. Wish I'd had more time to explore the hiking trails that start right from the property! (Special thanks to Mary Ellen Chown of Lion World for rearranging our transfers to/from the hotel after our flight plans changed.) Definitely one of the very finest lodgings of all my travels. Highly recommend!

Dear Trip Advisor Reviewer,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Twelve Apostles hotel & Spa with our potential future guests.

It is with great pleasure that I read your wonderful comments and so glad that you had such a memorable stay with us. We are very fortunate with the location of the hotel which is very unique in the city. We have the benefit of being in the Table Mountain Nature reserve and have a marine reserve in front of the hotel. On your next visit we would love to get one of our sports buddies to join you on your hike behind the hotel and perhaps you can stop for a picnic at one of the 8 spots with uninterrupted views for the Atlantic Ocean and Twelve Apostles Mountain range.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future.

With warm regards
