This is certainly a stand out hotel in the context of global travellers. Everything is of the highest standard, big bright and airy suites with sea views. The food in the restaurant was absolutely amazing, with the Leopard Bar being a treat for sundowners. Just the drive to the hotel is a spectacle with the hotel suddenly emerging on the landscape with nothing else around except sea and mountains. A top class concierge backs up all the other services, with the spa a must. Perfect for couples and families, the hotel offers the best experiece for all. Although it was a bit cool, the pools look inviting and the area around them offers a great poolside experience for an outdoor lunch. The staff certainly take great pride in this hotel and it is hard to find anything that is lacking. My partner wants to come back soon and spend at least a week here to fully immerse in the relaxing atmosphere we felt at The Twelve Apostles. A must on any Cape Town stay, even if its just for a glass of champagne on the verandah. Read less

After a relaxing hike around pipe track, Table Mountain and a quick change of clothes, we decided to reward ourselves with a refreshing cocktail. The view out on the balcony takes your breathe away. And I keep going back!

We went for a couples massage, enjoyed the spa treatments and had a nice relaxing sundowner on the balcony to top it all off. A beautiful way to treat yourself and your partner, we saw another couple getting engaged as the sun went down.

This hotel was on a list of hotels to stay at to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Friendly staff and nothing was too much to ask for. The location was amazing and lovely spa facilities. Very quiet and relaxing.
