We drove past these on the road to Simon's Town. It was a lovely sunny day but we could not stop for a photo.

A beautiful view from ocean, roads or sea. And from the air. Not to be confused with the hotel which we never managed to get into because it's so busy and even as afternoon tea prospective guests we were turned away by security because of "lack of parking". Anyway the hotel has a great reputation for those that are fortunate... More

Service was ok, Food great but very pricy. Look out for their specials which is value for money. Not a place I can afford to go all the time.

The twelve apostles or the 12 little mountain peaks of the Table Mountain are very picturesque and clearly visible when you are travelling by the hop off hop on city bus tour.

Recommend seeing with Durbanville 4x4 wine tour, but I'm sure the mountains are beautiful from most angles in Cape Town. Very cool to see a long mountain range like that. Table mountain is one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world (16 million years old?)

A luxurious hotel with country chic rooms ,decorated with beautiful rose petals made our wedding anniversary extra special. Friendly and professional staff made us feel welcome from the moment we checked in. Restaurants served the most awesome food. Champagne breakfast with oysters is sure not to be missed.

Driving through these jagged mountain peaks is so impressive. Not necessary 12 but more than, but they come one after the other and for explorers seeing them for the first time would have been in awe of the sight.

Twelve Apostles are the mountains that surround Camps Bay. They are beautiful. The view you have from the beach is spectacular.

We took a chance and went for a easter sunday lunch at the twelve apostles. The welcome of the hotel and restaurant staff was very friendly and warm. The service in the restaurant was excellent and the food very nice. my impression is that i would stay at that hotel during my next stay in capetown region.
