A great stay at the Mount Nelson - exemplary service, wonderful afternoon tea with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Upgraded on arrival to a suite which got the holiday off to a great start.

Lovely hotel gardens, huge comfortable roomPosted Nov 18, 2013
Pros: The relaxed atmosphere, the gardens and the breakfasts
Location: Not near to shops but not far to get a cab anywhere, would rather have this location with the beautiful surrounds than be close to shops
When next in Cape Town, I will be staying at the Mount Nelson, I have stayed at most of the other favourite 5 star hotels and the Mount Nelson is the one that stands out in all aspects.

Grand hotelPosted Oct 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is truly grand in the old style. Think Agatha Christie, high tea and champagne.

The hotel service was outstanding-from the concierge's quick response to my e-mails, to the very short waiting time when I called to request the hotel courtesy shuttle pickup, to the incredible room service breakfast (included in my room rate.) Breakfast in the dining room was wonderful, too, and the grounds and lobby area were beautiful. However, I felt that the rooms could use updating. (The first one I was assigned in an exterior building had spots on the carpeting, the air conditioning did not seem to work and some of the furniture could have been in better condition. When I mentioned this to Reception, I was immediately assigned to a much nicer room in the main building that was very comfortable for my whole stay and was told one building was closed for renovation, hence my assignment to a room that would not normally have been used.)

If you ask anyone in Cape Town where they would love to stay locally, it's always the "Nelly" (Mount Nelson). Its location on the slopes of Table Mountain and Grand Entrance make you feel excited before you even get the the check-in desk. My wife and I have a balcony suite in the old part of the hotel with amazing views of Table Mountain. Our room was faultless in every way (amazing bed, big spacious bathroom, good in room facilities such as a hair dryer, dressing table, desk...). The breakfast sat out on the terrace is a great way to start any ones day, the famous afternoon tea (with finger foods, sandwiches and cakes) is there waiting for you so the morning is a good time to go to the spa. My wife and I had the couples massage package during the morning at the spa which includes afternoon tea. In the evening the Planets restaurant is an experience in itself, go for the wine sommelier package with your meal, Clive is a wealth of knowledge and for my wife and I made the whole evening that bit more special. The service through out our stay was faultless from all staff at the hotel. My wife has now informed me that we will always be staying at the Nelly when in Cape Town, and I can not think of anywhere else I would rather be.
