Arrived Cape Town at 10am, reached Mount Nelson hotel at 1030am. Bell boy was very fast and polite to collect our luggage and front desk was very pleasant. Checked us in straight away and upgraded us as I've told them this was for my husband's birthday celebration. A bottle of nice champagne was waiting for us in our nice cottage. Our cottage overlooks the pool. It was such a lovely room all we wanted is to spend our time reading and having happy hour drinks at our balcony. They've gym and a reasonable size pool. Shower tap can be improved by having a simple pull and turn left or right for hot or cold. TV in the room was way too small. We tried to watch the soccer match which we struggle with it. ;) Hotel provide free transport to Table Mountain, Riverside (where lots of shops and resto) and 1 more area which I forgot. It was very nice to have such complimentary service though is cheap and safe to grab a metered taxi too.
Breakfast spread was good though lots of flies hovering around the food. All waiter/waitress, concierge, front desk, everyone at Mount Nelson are so well-train.
I'll definitely be back again if I'm in Cape Town.
