Best Romantic getaway!
Best service we've had in a Hotel for a long time. The staff made our anniversary very special
AJ, za1 night romance trip

In Cape Town to spend time with family & friends
The team and the service they deliver are by far the biggest asset of the Mount Nelson Hotel. This is closely followed by the attention to taste and presentation given with all food dishes. A little more attention to detail when it comes to room maintenance would go a long way. Not because it ruined our stay in anyway, but simply because when you stay at the Mount Nelson, your expectations are that everything will be perfect.
Bevan, za5 night family trip
Exceptional 10,0
A wonderful time, room was lovely, large and comfortable. The service was good without being over the top and obtrusive. Breakfast buffet had an excellent choice and it was a great setting outside overlooking the pool. We wished we could have stayed longer

We had a great time at the Belmond. Beautiful garden, great room. We didn't know about the recent armed robbery which sounded scary but felt safe during our time.
