We were 11 couples who stayed there for my husbands 50 th birthday. We had a great stay and they really went out of their way to make it special for us. The rooms are beautiful and clean and caters to your every whim. Most wonderful breakfast and awesome professional, friendly staff. And the view!

Beautiful restaurant with beautiful view. We ate in the bar and had too may proseccos ...Great live music Only downside was a family with 3 kids running riot...jumping all over the furniture. This isn't the type of place for nightmare children with parents who don't respect other people around them.....the restaurant employees did nothing to stop them

Stayed here for one night in March 2015 and had a lovely stay. We wish we could have stayed longer. It was a joint 30th birthday/engagement treat from our parents and when we got to our room (complimentary upgrade) it was covered in balloons, champers and birthday cake, such a nice touch! We enjoyed the couples spa treat, a mud... More

12 Apostles is inarguably one of the finest hotels on the Cape Peninsula - its reputation certainly preceded it, and it lived up to all our expectations. Certainly felt like royalty. Loved the decor and overall atmosphere. We were warned that the main road that snakes below is quite noisy, but frankly we didn't hear it once. Views from the... More

The 12 Apostles is located up on a cliff looking over the beautiful bay. It's a lovely setting, loaded with decks and lounge areas from which to enjoy Cape Town's natural beauty.
