This is a wonderful, boutique hotel situated adjacent to the beach, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, in a little town not far from Cape Town called Kommentjie. The accommodation is superb, with large suites beautifully furnished and decorated, each with a stunning view. There is also a lovely pool.

I took a solo trip to SA from the US for my birthday. I wanted high quality and I got it. Every employee was so helpful. My only complaint is that parking was difficult. But everything else was perfect. The beach, the room, everything. I will be back.

This place is Cape Town's best kept secret and best of all we did not have to take a long haul flight to find such a perfect piece of beach.

We had three nights, in a sea-view room with balcony. The room was spacious, light and well furnished. The staff could not have been more friendly, and helpful. The view over the beach, bay and then the mountains leading to Table Mountain is spectacular. We enjoyed the high quality private dining on one evening, and also the "free" mini bar...

A gorgeous place to get away for a while. Breathtaking views of the ocean from our balcony located right on a safe and long beach to walk along. We decided not to eat dinner at the hotel but rather went to try one of the local restaurants.

Amazing spot on the beach for some rest and relaxation. Lovely to walk along the beach and close enough to Kommetije to walk in for dinner. Staff were very kind and accommodating really making you feel at home and helping you wherever possible. Great breakfast and lovely rooms. My second stay at the Last Word and I will be back!!!
