Expert review of The Last Word Constantia

For those seeking sanctuary in semi-rural surrounds - this is it.

A member of the Last Word family of seriously luxurious boutique guest houses, The Constantia was once a private home and it still has a warm and welcoming feel to it. It's tucked away off one of Constantia's popular thoroughfares and with its classic interior decoration and sprawling garden it feels like a smart home-from-home. I last visited in early spring and I could just imagine bagging myself a lounger and spending the day sunning myself by the pool while breathing in the scents of fresh garden flowers.

Location: 

In Constantia, a semi-rural suburb around twenty minutes' drive to the south of the city. This guest house is convenient for visitors keen to explore the Constantia Valley and its varied offerings.

Bedrooms: 

The suites at this property are very spacious and dressed in a variety of soft fabrics and finishes and easy-on-the-eye colours. The bathrooms are open plan to the bedroom and some feature quite beautiful hand-finished mosaics. Some of the suites have their own splash-pools and each has a terrace. Privacy is paramount.

Who stays there: 

Couples who relish the privacy and quiet, second-time visitors to the Cape keen to explore this part of the peninsula and foodies and wine lovers intent on tasting the Constantia Valley offerings.

Price advice: 

Look out for pay-for-two-stay-for-three out of season offers as well as special deals for staying at any of the brand's other properties dotted around the peninsula and further afield in Franschhoek.

Pros: 
Privacy, peace and quiet prevail
Easy access to the rest of the southern suburbs
Cons: 
Open plan bedroom-bathrooms may not suit all travellers
