Luxury Hotel Cape Town
Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010
We visited Cape Town in South Africa to attend a wedding flying from Birmingham in England via Amsterdam to Cape Town with KLM.
Our flight touched down late at night and we were driven by our friends to the first of two luxury hotels we had arranged to stay at for four nights in Cape Town:-
THE CAPE HERITAGE HOTEL
This luxury hotel in Cape Town is centrally located within walking distance of both the financial area of the city and the shops and parks.
There are fifteen bedrooms. Our room was huge, beautifully furnished with a wonderful wooden floor and we could sit up in bed with a view of Table Mountain.
This luxury hotel in Cape Town is owned by an Englishman who is most personable-nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was a delight served by the most friendly staff you could possibly meet. A lovely lounge to relax in with a drink in the evening. Although dinner is not served there are numerous excellent restaurants close by which the hotel can recommend-do not miss dining at L'Aubergine! The hotel will arrange a taxi for you if required -in a mercedez benz.
You can be assured of a warm welcome at this luxury hotel in the middle of Cape Town and you will be well looked after during your stay.
For the final two nights of our stay in Cape Town we moved a few miles into the exclusive suburbs of Cape Town to :-
LES CASCADES DE BANTRY BAY
This luxury hotel, actually described as a lodge, is located in a peaceful exclusive residential area of Bantry Bay.
It is personally run and has six bedrooms in the main house all with balconies with views of the sea. The furnishings both in the bedroom and in the public areas are of the highest quality. The bathroom was luxurious. In The Villa, a separate building located within the grounds, there are four bedrooms designed in a contemporary style. The small swimming pools are beautiful with lovely seating areas to relax- candles lit on an evening. Breakfast was served outside overlooking one of the swimming pools. Dinner is also served but we did not dine at this luxury hotel.
The staff are very attentive and personable at this small luxury hotel.
Whilst we did not stay at The Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town we did have afternoon tea and what a memorable experience that was! We have had afternoon tea at many other luxury hotels but nothing has compared with that at The Mount Nelson Hotel. Do not miss the experience!
