As a goodbye to CapeTown (we leaving after 11 years), I arranged for afternoon tea at the Cape Grace with some friends this afternoon (Sat 7 August). The Mt Nelson has the reputation in the Cape for this sort of thing, but, hey, I wanted to try the other "iconic" hotel in CapeTown. The result was staggeringly bad. We had to wait 20 minutes before we were found a table, another 20 minutes (yes, we timed it) before a waiter came to take our order, then he came back after 20 minutes and had forgotten the food...serious....the food was a platter of like it or lump it tired sandwiches at a fixed price of R80. The tables were too small for food and tea.....all in all, a dreadful experience......The Grace in Joburg recently closed.....you'd have thought this would have been a rocket up the staffs backsides.....Not so!....watch out guys....To the Mt nelson, we extend deep apologies....we'll be back there next time!
