"Living up to family legend"
A family story led us to have lunch in the conservatory at the Belmond Mount Nelson, which in turn prompted our decision to eat in the Planet restaurant that evening. We were not disappointed and would happily dine there regularly if only we lived in Cape Town. A totally lovely room with well spaced tables and very charming service was enhanced by the very enjoyable and never intrusive live piano music. I have yet to mention the food which is obviously the main event and did not disappoint. Great choices, followed up with appetising presentation and delicious food. Thank you Mount Nelson for living up to all our expectations
"The staff are wonderful and polite"
This hotel is great it's in the centre of everything. It has limited guests beautiful food and a lovely pool. The staff are great at English and are incredibly polite and welcoming. Not great for long stays but maybe three or so days and it's great. The rooms are huge. Overall it's a beautiful hotel with beautiful people.
"A Classic in Every Way"
Stayed in a Garden Cottage for 4 nights in mid June. Everything about it was what you would expect from a legendary hotel. We arrived from LA after 25 hours of flying at 9:30 at night. Our driver was right there, waiting for us and took us to the hotel. Our suite was perfect with a lovely living room, a great bathroom and a terrific bed. Lots of room. The grounds are beautiful, breakfast is wonderful, oysters for breakfast! Most importantly, the staff is always prepared to help. I especially would like to mention the concierge, Mandisi, who went way above and beyond to solve a problem (completely unrelated to the Mount Nelson) with our luggage. A great hotel!
"Wonderful afternoon tea!"
We took afternoon tea at the Mount Nelson on our honeymoon. The food and warm snacks served were lovely. The cakes table had so much to choose from! Our waitress was so good and attentive and gave us a lovely little plate of extra sweets to take home as it was our honeymoon. The hotel grounds were beautiful as well. It's worth the indulgent visit!
"Beautiful hotel. lots of character"
Very comfortable hotel with a beautiful setting. The hotel and grounds are beautiful. The rooms are 5 star. I think we had a standard room but it still had a huge bathroom, with large bath, separate toilet, heaps of bench space with double sink. The buffet breakfast was comprehensive and very good. The gym is small, but good. I had read previous reviews before I went about staff being rude. We had no problems at all. Staff were very polite and great to deal with. This is a great place to stay.
