My husband and I visited for one night on the Celebrations package and it was absolutely lovely. From the moment you walk in you feel welcome and cared for. The room was superb and, for the first time in my life, I was the lucky winner of an upgrade having booked the classic room and getting the superior sea facing room instead - definitely contributed to an even better experience. The food was delicious and we ended up eating WAY too much, but every bite was worth it. The sea views from the restaurants and the room we were in was spectacular. Hopefully next time, we would stay a little longer to really soak in the relaxation. Thank you to everyone who made our stay special! Read less

Had a fabulous 2 course lunch in the Azure restaurant. I needed a place to escape to do some work. Got a stunning corner table with views straight on the sea. The staff went out of their way to accommodate a good working setup - and even offered to install an extension cable to reach my preferred table. WOW people! My lovely waiter, Judge - was so incredibly sweet, knowledgable, caring, polite and a complete gentleman. I know I'm waxing on so much about the service, I almost forgot the food - well... its sublime. Have the Pina Colada, have the classic prawn cocktail, and have the Hake with creamed spinach. A truly memorable working day. Thanks guys! Read less

My husband and I recently stayed at the 12 Apostles - the service was excellent: the staff were very polite and helpful, they made sure we had a comfortable stay by stocking the room with every essential we may have needed, and the turndown service was a lovely addition. The food was incredible! The pre-meal breads and butter were delicious and I'd highly recommend the salad starter, fillet steak and the creamy rice pudding. The breakfast was a cut above the rest - the hot breakfast, waffles and crepes along with the extras (the best smoked salmon trout I have ever had, nutty muesli, stewed berries, fruit salad, yogurt etc.) presented in jars filled us up while we enjoyed the breathtaking views of the sea. I wish I could go back there now! Read less

On arrival for a breakfast the ocean and mountain views are just amazing, immediately capturing my attention, the hotel is so well located to present this beautiful scenery. Once inside the hotel, the decor together with the warm friendly welcoming from the crew is the next magic to welcome a first time visitor. The breakfast service team is of such a high quality as is the food. So much more could be mentioned here but will keep this review short. So will end by saying I hope to be back soon! Read less

I would give the experience 5 stars, but i added a small detail with my booking request to place a message card in our room with a valentine's joke message on it. Room 415 needs some maintenance, main telephone handset was not working and missing lightbulb in bathroom. Read less
