Although flat as a table from the front as viewed from the waterfront, Cape Town's iconic mountain is as ragged as the alps from the rear where it is known as the Twelve Apostles. There are actually about seventeen of them but then that doesn't give a catchy analogy. Nobody ever had exactly seventeen of anything memorable. There are nice... More

From the hop on bus or top of Table, the Apostles are always stunning. Today more than ever, without a cloud in the sky. My suggestion for this attraction and several mountains here; get on the hop on bus and enjoy the scenery .

Twelve Apostles are best seen from Camps Bay and surrounding districts. Actually there are more than 12 peaks :)

From reception at check in, to entering my heavenly room, to the superb breakfasts out on the patio overlooking the ocean. Who could ask for anything more. And then a visit to the spa. Well,...I felt like I was in another world

We could see these from the apartment we stayed in in Camps Bay and from every angle they are so awe inspiring. They look particularly amazing with the table cloth (clouds) whispering over them. A-may-zing!

This is no more than a feature of the landscape. And for twelve read seventeen. Chunks of rock up high in an interesting formation. If that floats your boat then take a look as you pass. But this is no bust your gut to see experience. Just rocks.

Visited for Sunday brunch. Beautifully decorated dining room with comfortable chairs and a gorgeous seaside view. We were, however, a little disappointed with the mediocre food which wasn't that varied and found that some of the main courses were definitely served on the tepid side. There was live music which was very pleasant to listen to. Wine was good and... More
