Had 5 weeks holiday in the Cape staying in various places but on our trip made the best choice and to have the afternoon tea at the Mount Nelson. This was an excellent choice in its own right.Because of this we made the decision to spend time at this unique hotel.
Booking in was a slight hurdle to be truthful as the on line price differed to what the reception staff stated on the phone as reservations only work part of the day. When mentioning that the On line price was different to what they quoted it was clearly they didn't differ from what they quote if you walk in and ask.
I was left with no choice but to try and book on line to achieve this result and then phone back and speak to another advisor. This response was completely different and decided to upgrade us to the Deluxe room as My travelling companion has mobility issues.
From arriving to leaving they couldn't do enough for us. They offered to bubble wrap our wine purchases for us which was excellent and from the attentive care they make to there guests, this stands out a mile from other hotels. The way they prepare the rooms at turn down for example. What luxury.
We had dinner at the Planet restaurant and this didn't disappoint. I would recommend there Beef Wellington.
The mornings were started with what I would state as the best breakfast I have ever seen by far. Virtually anything you want to eat whether al a carte or the buffet.
Yes this was a truly memorable stay here. I only with we could have stayed longer to soak up the ambiance more.
