A true gem out in the middle of Kommetjie

This boutique hotel is a real gem with all staff on their toes to please, which is exactly how the hospitality industry is about. Apart from the great service, the location and scenic views were absolutely awesome. You could spend an entire few days just taking it all in without having to leave the place.

The Last word is truly an amazing experience. From the second you enter, you are greeted by the staff who carefully go through all the aspects of your room and the lounge. Service is amazing. The lounge has afternoon tea and free beverages in the evening with a great view on the sea. We were only a bit disappointed by the area of the hotel.

Bliss - no other word does it justice

A business trip with a weekend is often not much fun when overloaded with work you feel you need to continue to clear the decks. Needing some peace, quiet, and re-invigoration, I found this hotel, which actually is not all that far from Cape Town. But what a world away. I felt like I had had two weeks off. Amazing location and wonderful staff

Great experience-will definitely be going back

My girlfriend and I had an AMAZING time at the Last Word and will definitely be going again!! From the way we were welcomed to the place, the people are extremely friendly, nurturing and actually care about how we were feeling throughout our stay. It's so secluded that we felt like we were the only guests there!!! Our walks on the beach were priceless!!!

Arrived on Monday... Hotel has no food...no restaurants are open in town on Mondays except one and they only serve pizza. Had to walk 20 minutes in the dark to get to this place. Pool was broken not able to use for our entire stay. Had beautiful glass doors overlooking the outside but people wandering around constantly so you could not have open. Bed was sunk in the middle and hard. Furniture was old and dirty. On a good note the staff was very friendly and tried very hard to help but there was too much to overcome. Had just left a beautiful place in Bantry Bay… We should have stayed there. I would never go back to this place.

Great location, on the beach, comfortable.

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: The facilities and room were very comfortable, staff was great, location was great right on the beach.
Cons: The water pressure in the shower was lacking, could be improved.
Location: The location was peaceful, about 30-45 minutes from the waterfront in Capetown, close to Cape Point, great restaurants nearby in Kalks Bay/Simons Town
We very much enjoyed our stay at the hotel, the staff were amazing. We were made to feel very welcome, relaxing atmosphere. We will stay at the Last Word Long Beach again in the future.
