We stayed at The Last Word Constantia for two nights - and are dreaming of going back again. The setting - garden, pool area, breakfast/dinner area, our gorgeous room (Suite Premier), all staff, and the ATMOSPHERE were just fantastic. We enjoyed every second there.

All the boutique hotels in The Last Word group are magnificent and special. But, this property was outstanding. The grounds, the rooms, the overall ambiance, and the helpfulness of Tess and Sam were just terrific. The setting is not to be believed and a joy to come back to after a hard day of sightseeing.

I love The Constantia. I go to Cape Town regularly and stay there as much as I can. Perfect location in the heart of the Cape Town winelands, huge rooms, delicious brekkie and really lovely staff. I can't recommend it highly enough.

This is the second attempt by these guests to discredit our hotel. The first complaint was removed by Tripadvisor because it made personal attacks on people who they seemed to dislike. We cannot remove any correspondence at our liberty if we don’t agree to what has been written. It is the sole prerogative of Tripadvisor. Many hotels experience guests who...

Opted for staying here on the last night of a trip to South Africa and had it not been for using airmiles I might not have found it nor stayed there.

My husband and I don't usually rate service a significant factor in choosing hotels but at The Last Word it is difficult not to-they set a standard no one else in all of SA has met during our many trips.
