The Mount Nelson

Accommodation in Cape Town

A Cape Town landmark, the wonderful Mount Nelson hotel – in the lee of Table Mountain – harks back to a bygone era of grace and luxury.

Tucked into lush gardens between the Company’s Gardens and the towering Table Mountain, the pink-hued Mount Nelson is a Cape Town icon of elegance, luxury and old-school comfort. The sun-soaked gardens are so peaceful and tranquil that it is hard to believe you are in the centre of one of the world’s most vibrant, exciting cities. This beautifully restored five-star hotel recalls an era of colonial splendour, and famous guests include Winston Churchill, John Lennon and Nelson Mandela.

Enjoy the sanctuary of the elegant, understated bedrooms and suites – among the most luxurious on offer in Cape Town. Each of the 144 rooms and 57 suites is individually designed and brims with lavish yet low-key style. Choose from a wide range of rooms and suites – the garden cottage suites are perfect for romance; these restored historic cottages tucked behind a scented rose garden make an idyllic hideaway for honeymooners or couples looking to escape from the world.

Quirky modern touches bring the old-world charm of the delightfully restored interiors to life – the Mount Nelson is a wonderful combination of leafy tranquillity and contemporary buzz. While the hotel is perfectly located to give you easy access to Cape Town’s many charms, you may find yourself staying put. There are two heated outdoor swimming pools (the more secluded of the two is reserved for over 16s), two tennis courts (and a resident tennis pro), a golf practice net, a fitness centre equipped with the latest cardio and weight training equipment, indoor and outdoor yoga and pilates classes, and a fine gift shop. The Librisa Spa is an elegant indulgence with 10 treatment rooms, a sauna, steam room, plunge pool and conservatory.

And if you want to remain in the luxury of this heaven on earth, the Mount Nelson – with its Planet Restaurant and Oasis Bistro – is foodie heaven. Do not miss the hotel’s legendary high tea, famously popular with those in the know!
