Today I want to skip ahead to where I rested my head on the 2nd evening: The Last Word Constantia Of course we have to kick things off with a quick tour:And how’s incredible is that bath? I of course made full use of that baby: Now as with their property over in Franschhoek, you can expect 5 star quality service (in fact, they’ve actually won an award for “Best five star guest house in SA”) run by a team of warm, friendly folks who’ll have you feeling right at home from the moment you step foot inside.
Also you’re right in the middle of the Constantia wine valley, so as far as surroundings go, you don’t really get much better. To give you an idea:
- Klein Constantia, Steenberg, Buitenverwagten & Groot Constantia are only 5min away
- Top restaurants like La Colombe, The Green House & Bistro Sixteen82 on the bend are also only 5min away
- If you like golf: Royal Cape, Steenberg, Westlake, Clovelly is about 10 – 15 min away
- And for those wanting to head into town, that’s only about a 15min drive…
The Last Word Constantia has 9 gorgeously decorated & spacious rooms of which 5 are suites (1 family, 2 elegant suites & 2 pool suites) and 4 are superior doubles.
Then as you saw in the pics above, they also have a solar heated pool with tanning deck, a fantastic garden to hideaway in, free WiFi throughout, a residents bar (your stay includes all beverages including local wine & premium spirits), secure parking, 24 hr security, laundry services and spa treatments/picnics/tours/transfers all by arrangements.
The rooms also come with an en suite bathroom with seperate shower/bath/toilet, flat screen TV with select DSTV channels, a DVD player, a complimentary mini bar filled with snacks & drinks, tea & coffee making facilities, a hairdryer (always a must for the girls), a room safe, under floor heating (again, a total score in winter), air conditioning, heated towel rails, robes & slippers to lounge in and your nightcap sorted.
Lunches & dinners can be accommodated by prior arrangement, and just to give you an idea of what that could look like, have a look at this:And then the big breakfast spread happens every morning (and is included in your stay), but the best part is that view: I was hoping that they’d adopt me and that I could live there forever and ever… 😉 I can definitely recommend The Last Word Constantia for anybody coming to Cape Town and who’s looking for something that feels secluded but is still conveniently located and not too far from the city action.
