We want to thank everyone at the 12 Apostles Camps Bay for their outstanding service and attention 👏 and a special thank you to Juanita, Helani, Fiona, Gillian, Nolitha and Samantha. As guests we like to be pampered and I don't take hospitality for granted anymore, it's very seldom that people go the extra mile but we were pleasantly surprised,… Read more

Our second visit back this time for three days and it did not disappoint. From the check-in to every restaurant, bar or facility staff, nothing is too much trouble and everything is done with a smile. Staff take the time to chat to you and are interested in your day and this makes it a very personal service. The staff all seem to love their job and this shines through in the relaxed and personal service we received. The hotel is beautifully decorated, rooms are spacious and well positioned. Our view was across the mountain looking up to the 12 Apostles. Strongly recommend the Leopard Bar and Azure restaurant. Take the time to follow one of the paths to one a number of picnic spots and enjoy the views. We will be back, we love the service and the location, just far enough from Camps Bay and Cape Town to feel like you can relax, but free shuttles into Cape Town if you need it. Well done 12 Apostles, you made our stay very memorable. Read less
