Kids Wigwam With soft toys

A family hotel in Cape Town

Experience The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa as a family and make memories with your little ones to last a lifetime.

Everyone is welcome

Children of all ages are welcomed at the hotel, and guests aged 12 and below stay free of charge when sharing with two adults. Children receive a complimentary gift bag on arrival, filled with a welcome gift and a souvenir card to redeem special treats throughout the hotel. Child-sized bathrobes are provided, with cots and playful sleeping ‘tents’ included at no additional cost.

Family fun

Young guests will love the hotel’s two swimming pools, or can visit our on-site cinema, where child-friendly films are screened each afternoon. The cinema offers five screenings per day, and guests can look forward to plush leather seating, Dolby surround-sound and a selection of complimentary popcorn, snacks and refreshments.

Discover our cinema


For parents hoping to enjoy a private dinner in one of the hotel’s acclaimed restaurants, a professional child-minding service can provide experienced babysitters, on request and at additional cost. For more information on our child-minding offering or to arrange this service in advance of your stay, please contact our Guest Services Team via the link below. 

Pools & gardens

Young travellers will love the two pools at The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa. The infinity pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean offers the unique opportunity to spot whales and dolphins from the pool, while the quieter ‘rock pools’ at the rear of the hotel boast impressive views onto Table Mountain. Older children will also love exploring our gardens of indigenous fynbos. Pool toys are provided during school holidays, or on request.
