“Old French style meets Dutch is the feeling I got... Lovely service and treats.. Went for a high tea, only fault I can make is that I thought there was a live pianist however I think it was a CD and when it stopped... It didn't go back on🙈 aah well.. Still made for a lovely treat!”

“I've been going for Afternoon Tea's here, for a few of my important anniversary events, for the last 3 years. I've done afternoon Tea's at a couple of other places but my "Criteria for a good experience" has always been modeled on my experience at Mount Nelson. This can be summarized down to 3 things: Amazing Tea's - I've been to multiple Morning and Afternoon Tea's, the menu is always expansive covering a large spectrum of cultures and a variety of flavours for every mood. Great Service - In all my years going here I have always been impressed with their consistent service. The waiters and waitress have always had a good grasp of knowledge on all of the Tea's on the menu and can give you a decent run down of the Tea. Snack! - The Tea's are usually accompanied by finger snacks that are proportioned correctly and delicious. The one catch in all this is of course the price - albeit a bit pricey, for the service, the options, and the experience you get, this is the best place for Afternoon Tea's that I have found so far. I will be trying a few Evening Tea's this year and it's honestly an exciting event to look forward to on my calendar. Thank you Mount Nelson for Consistently delivering! I look forward to future Tea's.”
