The Pink painted Mount Nelson is the iconic hotel of Cape Town and still retains the ethos of its glorious past and taking high tea there allows you to soak in its atmosphere.
Service is both friendly and faultless with lots of warm smiles from staff starting the minute you enter the grand entrance area.
The range & quality if food offered is superb and constantly refreshed.
Of course choice of teas is unbeatable and elegantly presented in glass teapots.
It's worth splashing out on a glass of Cape Classic bubbly to really top out the experience.
If you are fortunate enough to have Margaret as your server you know you are going to be well looked after.
Ask her if the warm scones are still warming? Ours took a long time to come but Margarate made the waiting fun and no problem.
The Mount Nelson IS Cape Town and high tea is an essential part of the Mount Nelson.
Don't miss it!!!
