The staff are very professional, and made us feel at home from the word go. We will certainly return to the hotel.
Fantastic staff, very welcoming and friendly. Made our marriage ceremony very special.
The ambiance, warm and friendly staff, especially Lazie in the Oasis, the smiling Head Concierge (Byron Page), help with arrangements, great breakfasts, Planet Bar
Unstable bar table in Planet Bar at lunchtime, cold bathroom.
What a gem. Beautiful old school luxury but still a relaxed atmosphere, and not too pretentious. Courteous staff, nice rooms, gorgeous garden area, fantastic high tea +++ this institution is a must see either it is for staying or spending an afternoon for anyone who visits Cape Town.
The day we arrived it was quite hot and humid, and the "plush" furnishing with all the carpets made the room feel a bit stuffy..
The afternoon tea was lovely, the staff extremely knowledgeable Very accommodating to us while waiting for our flight home The whole atmosphere was perfect
A very special place with outstanding staff, great facilities and wonderful rooms
Everything was perfect, the staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble, we felt at home and relaxed instantly, the whole place is welcoming.. Even the resident duck didn't mind sharing the pool with us..!!
We didn't like leaving..!!
We loved our stay at the Mount Nelson, the staff were amazing and so friendly we were made to feel so welcome it made us feel totally at home, this place is a little oasis in the mother city.. We will return for sure, special thanks to Wilson. Buissy and Washington for all their help, smiles and laughter .. We love South Africa ..!!
It is ready to be refurnished
A wonderful atmosphere. Laid back but attentive. Beautiful gardens.
Great location, hotel and grounds beautifully maintained. Brilliant service, front desk staff in particular very helpful and attentive. Had a great five day stay!
Pool area was excellent Grounds with Art sculpture beautiful
Staff at front desk helpful. Good gym. Tasteful hotel room. Nice bar.
Room not ready on check in. Terrible room service. Took forever to get our room cleaned (which was never dive properly). Delivered someone else's laundry to our room. Unable to cook poached eggs at breakfast. Exterior of hotel was old and grotty. Pool area had old plastic sun loungers with old pink towels. Minibar and coffee station never replenished. You could hear all the noise from the hallway in the bedroom.
Very poor service and attention to detail; difficult to get service at breakfast. Room was old and tired. For £500 a night this was not what we expected
A Grand Old Lady- staff warm, welcoming and efficient. The facilities, pool areas, gardens and overall ambience are great - reminescent of a bygone era. We thoroughly enjoyed our charming beautifully decorated cottage a d look forward to our next visit
Cant think of anything of note
fantastic hotel, full of history and traditions! garden and room are amasingly quiet harbor in vibrant Cape Town! one of the highlights of the city visit.
have not been told to book an afternoon tea so we missed to taste it!
The staff were very friendly and cooperative in advising us and helping us organize a variety of tours. We were very impressed that the hotel called us at home in the USA to ensure that we would be met at the airport and that we would be receiving an upgrade. The hotel and grounds are magnificent. We felt that we were in a very special place.
Facilities, rooms, gardens, pool, location are superb Fantastic breakfast Most importantly the hotel handled a mishap very well: we had interconnecting rooms but one of the rooms had a real noise issue (all through the night there was an annoying ticking noise preventing us from sleeping). Next day they investigated it, couldnt solve it, upgraded us to another room and were fair enough not to charge us for that one night. Much appreciated (given it was our first night of thew holiday) Very friendly and professional staff!
Hotel transfers are very expensive (just book a car at the airport)
Wow, Wow, Wow! Sheer luxury, everything about this place is special, from the second you walk in!
Wonderful experience. A good combination of comfort, ambiance and functionality. Great facilities, good location and attentive service.
Mt Nelson is so beautiful, such character and a must when in Cape Town! We loved our suite too, all staff were amazing and ready to go the extra mile, we travel a lot and this hotel is definitely one of the best we've ever stayed in
That we had to leave!!
Warm reception, after a long drive everything was taken care of.
In fact this is a perfect and unique place to stay in Cape Town. I really love the british style and the nature around (the gardens are so beautiful) and the peace. And because of this is a place where I can stay in business or with my lovely family!
