Just love this place. Stayed last year. Stayed this year and will definitely be returning Had a 10 pm flight home but were able to stay in our room until leaving for airport (no charge) NOTHING IS TO MUCH EFFORT We were welcomed like long lost friends. If you like Hiltons,Sofitels etc this may not be the place for you but would advise anyone who wants 5* intimate with 1st class service without being pretentious to come here. Can't wait to return. Also try long Beach and Franschoek Both similar and just as lovely

Fabulous food (and lots of it), nicely presented and very reasonably priced. The staff were very attentive and helpful, would highly recommend this place for high tea. The gardens are gorgeous and pretty decor inside.

Relaxed hide away. Tessa runs this guest house and she creates a relaxed atmosphere. Make sure to book room number 5, it has it's own pool! The rooms are luxurious and well kept. Breakfast is good and the mini bar is free. Well worth a try.

My wife and I spent a fabulous time being thoroughly spoilt by the kind and caring personnel of The Last Word Constantia. Everything we needed was catered for . From the beautiful appointed rooms to the marvelous food we really enjoyed our stay. Close to all the amenities yet once you are inside there is a special calm and senerity. We will return!

Our beautiful room and the stunning gardens were a welcome haven after driving over 500K. We were amazed how peaceful it was considering its proximity to major roads,but you could hardly hear any traffic noise and it made it very convenient for driving to the sights. The staff were lovely and made you feel very welcome, that nothing was too much trouble and were very helpful in making reservations and finding out if the cable car was running etc. (The day it was open we got there about 10.30 and there were already large crowds with a 45 minute wait, so we came back at about 17.20 and walked straight in.) The other plus points to our room were the secluded patio (Room 4) and the lovely mosaic in the shower area. Small details but adding up to a very harmonious whole. A lovely place.

Today my sister and I took our eldest sister for the High Tea experience at The Last Word, Constantia. In one word it was - FANTASTIC. Plates laden with dainty sandwiches, savoury meatballs, tiny samoosas, small crepes filled with salmon,cheesecake slices, chocolate cake slices, scones with jam and cream, homemade shortbread, cupcakes, and more. As much tea or coffee as you wanted, charming service, AND a card and present of champagne and nougat for the birthday girl. The surroundings are elegant, the gardens well tended and inviting. Altogether a lovely few hours.

We stayed for a week in the Last Word Bishopscourt. For some reason they have opened and closed this hotel several times in the last year. On our experience it would be tragic if others could not enjoy the luxury, pampering and views that we revelled in. It is close to everything, restaurants, shopping centers and all the Constantia wineries. Neville their driver was always on hand to save needing a car and designated non drinking driver. Bishopscourt has a lovely garden and pool beside which you can partake of the all inclusive alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and snacks. That's just the property, the staff are even better, Tess and her helpers spend their day thinking how to make their guests enjoy their day more. Quite remarkable and never before replicated in my travels and I have many favourites round the world. It would be a pity if we were deprived of returning by closures in order for the company to concentrate on their other properties. I'm puzzled because they can't be better than this one.
