Cape Grace, Mount Nelson or O&O for Christmas 2014

Hello, okay, I know it is like ages away, but I can't sleep at night if I do not have my holidays planned out ;-) Summer 2014 is already sorted and now I am looking to December 2014.

We have decided 12-14 nights in Cape Town over Christmas. I have already decided on The Cape Royale for our first week or so, but now am looking for a special place to spend December 24th - 28th.

I hoping to hear from anyone who has stayed at the either Cape Grace, Mount Nelson or the One & Only over the Christmas period. We are family of 3 (our son will be 11 at the time of our stay). We plan to sightsee the first part of the trip so are looking to really relax and unwind on our last few days before heading back to the UK for New Year's. I am leaning towards the Cape Grace, but really would like some feedback before booking.

Many thanks!

I would choose Cape Grace. Mount Nelson will be beautifully 'decked out' for the holidays and has the feel of a venerable classic hotel and would be my 2nd choice.

Cape Grace is lovely. The kids though would prefer the O and O. What made you decide on the Cape Royale and why do you want to change places. The Cape Royale is very near to the other hotels so its the same area. You will probably need to book now for Christmas time as its always packed out. Also CG and O and O are better positioned than the Mount Nelson .
