Personal Impression

This is a wonderful 5 star boutique bed and breakfast retreat that is part of the "Last Word" collection. It is located in a beautiful suburb of Constantia in Cape Town. The Constantia features an open bar policy and features the Last Word wines and you can help yourself to the well stocked bar. The grounds feature a large swimming pool and a delightful garden area. Each and every room is inviting, beautifully decorated and even the smallest room is delightful. The trees and lushness of the area makes this retreat very appealing.

Summary

A wonderful place to stay if you enjoy small boutique hotels. The area the hotel is located in is peaceful and in a very upscale area of Cape Town. The availability of the Chauffer - that only has to cater for six sets of guests makes transportation easy.
