We spent 4 nights at the end of our South African honeymoon at the Mount Nelson. As honeymooners we were upgraded to a suite and welcomed with sparkling wine and fruit in our room. Our suite was lovely and the general decor in this very grand old hotel is very olde world with lots of sparkly mirrors, glass and crystals. It felt very clean throughout and the housekeeping team were very good, we were not disturbed by them at all. The outstanding 'feature' for us here was the staff, very friendly yet very professional, nothing was too much trouble. We were addressed by name everytime we entered the hotel. The concierge team particularly Byron were outstanding. Leon was charming and everyone we encountered was superb. The Planet bar was very cool and trendy yet relaxed and dinner in the Cape Colony restaurant was lovely. We experienced the famous afternoon tea on our last day and it was fantastic. The car we had pre-booked to take us to the airport was held up in traffic so we were offered the hotel car to take us instead at no extra cost, wonderful service. With the exchange rate working in our favour this was an easily affordable luxury hotel and we will be back.
