We had an incredible stay at this hotel, there are so many highlights: The first call out has to be the staff, they were amazing, they go above and beyond to make sure your stay is special. They are very friendly and provide great service. The shuttle down to camps bay or V&A waterfront is very handy, they are super flexible on pick up times and it’s completely complimentary. We used it every day to go to and from dinner. The hotel food and drink was lovely, breakfast was very good, with lots of choice. The only let down was the room, we had a mountain view room, although no views of the mountain and the room in general was slightly tired. Our shower leaked onto the bathroom floors. We didn’t spend much time in the room so it didn’t matter much and the turndown in the evening with treats and water was a lovely touch. Read less

My husband and I chose the 12 Apostles as our wedding venue! It was the most dreamy day. We live in Abu Dhabi and had been planning this wedding for almost 3 years due to Covid. There were many ups and downs that were out of our control but our wedding planner, Sally, was so supportive throughout the entire process. Planning a wedding from abroad is not easy but Sally was with us every step of the way. There were many emails and zoom meetings that she was very attentive to. Once arriving in Cape Town she met with us before our big day to go through everything and show us the venue. She even got us checked into our honeymoon sweet the night before and on our wedding day she was so organized handling any issues allowing myself and hubby to have a relaxing wedding day. Right up until the day I was able to stay in contact with Sally and she honestly thinks of every single little detail making your special day flawless. The entire day ran so smoothly. We were either on schedule or early. I never felt stressed or overwhelmed and we had such a beautiful day. We had our reception in the Fynbos garden which was absolutely stunning, we were then able to have our photos taken at the beach just a short drive down the road. Our reception in the Atlantic Marquee was gorgeous! The views and the venue are unmatched and it gave our day such a beautiful romantic feel. Some of our guests stayed with the hotel and they were very well taken care of. The breakfast offered at the hotel was delicious and we had a small reception/family dinner the night before the wedding and it was wonderful! Of course our reception dinner was fabulous too. The staff at 12A are so attentive and welcoming. They really know how to take of their guests always paying special attention to small details. I highly recommend choosing the 12 Apostles for your dream wedding. If I could do it all over again I would in a heartbeat. This is a day we will never forget, it was just perfect!🤍 Read less

A pleasant afternoon out at the 12 Apostles for a family birthday. The staff was very friendly, the tea choices were unique, and all the high tea treats were delicious. Amazing cheesecake. The outdoor spaces are also beautiful.
