Our experience with this property began at the Cape Town airport, where we were greeted by the driver the hotel had sent to meet us. Little did we know that this was going to be our personal driver for the duration of our stay, but in light of the fact that he was very personable and very knowledgable about the city and surrounding areas, it proved to be the first of many excellent encounters with the staff. The reception staff was very welcoming and efficient, giving us a tour of the facilities along the way to our room. The room we chose when we booked had a view of Table Mountain, which was very beautiful to see first thing in the morning with the sun's early rays shining on it. Our room was in the older section of the hotel, yet was very spacious and well appointed. The concierge staff did a wonderful job of arranging the tours in which we were interested, and depsite several changes of plans, they never flinched, and all went without a hitch. Our driver took us wine tasting in Stellenbosch, down to Cape Point, and to various other venues -- keeping us totally entertained with history lessons and other interesting facts and stories along the way. The concierge arranged dinners for us at the restaurants we had picked through research on the Internet -- providing a few alternate suggestions where she felt we may have missed the mark. Her suggestions were always right on target with our likes. The breakfast buffet was extensive, and the hot breakfasts were all delicious as well. Afternoon tea is an event not to be missed. All in all, our stay at the Mount Nelson was one of best ever. Job very well done!!!! Definitely this will be our home away from home when we return to Cape Town!
