Breakfast was the best quality we had in South Africa and we ate some great breakfasts during our trip. The staff were very helpful but not intrusive. Little desserts in our room at night were a lovely addition. The pool was a...

Lovely rooms - spacious and well appointed with nice touches e.g. extra little sweet treats on the pillow at night. The staff were friendly and universally helpful. It's a great central location with most things in easy walking distance but still provides an oasis of calm . The only slight challenge is that the car parking spaces are tight but...

A quite superb hotel hidden away in Franschhoek. Everything about the hotel is fantastic. (In fact, calling it a hotel doesn't do it justice). The rooms are beautiful and spotless. Service is first class: all the staff, including Conrad and Franklin, really do look after you. Nothing is too much: even setting up breakfast earlier than scheduled to help us...

This was one of the best places that we stayed on our trip to SA. The room and bathroom were extra spacious, beautifully presented and comfortable. We had a private pool but being spring it was too cold, but never mind, it was a nice relaxing area. The public areas were also really comfortable and tasteful and it was nice...

We loved literally every single moment we spent at The Last Word. We got a last minute booking for the past weekend and just had the most amazing time. From the moment we arrived and Franklin greeted us at the gate to our sad departure, we were treated with care. The room was beautiful and huge, comfortable and tastefully furnished....
