The Mount Nelson Hotel's combination of colonial elegance, grace, grandeur and exceptional location, ensures her guests a truly memorable experience.

Occupying a breathtaking site on the lower slopes of Table Mountain and set in nine acres of lush and tranquil gardens, the Mount Nelson is Cape Town’s most famous hotel, located just a short stroll from the historic city centre and vibrant Kloof Street.

The 201 luxurious rooms and suites offer garden or mountain facing views and leisure facilities include two heated swimming pools, two floodlit tennis courts, a body care centre, gymnasium with personal trainers, a golf practice net, two gift shops and high speed internet access throughout the hotel.

In addition, each is equipped with television, international touch-dial telephones, voice mail and a safe. Refrigerators and mini bars are provided in all rooms except Single Rooms. A local daily newspaper, robes, hairdryers and bottled water are also included. A private fax line is available on request in some rooms. Non-smoking rooms are available.

A unique feature of the Mount Nelson Hotel is its four new 'wings' of luxurious accommodation, all set in private gardens planted with lavender and iceberg roses. These wings - Taunton House, Green Park, Helmsley and Hof Villa - are reached from the main hotel via the leafy Palm Avenue. Guests staying in them enjoy unrivalled serenity and seclusion, and are, of course, entitled to use all the hotel's facilities.

The hotel offers two restaurants – the Cape Colony restaurant offers an eclectic mix of contemporary Southern European and Western Cape trends, utilizing the very best of fresh local and international produce, whilst the Oasis restaurant, overlooking the beautiful gardens and swimming pool, offers the perfect venue for relaxed alfresco dining, ranging from extensive breakfast and lunch options, through to simpler health-focused meals.  The Hotel is also famous for its decadent Afternoon Tea served daily in the invitingly elegant lounge. 

The Mount Nelson has opened its highly acclaimed kitchen to the public, offering guests the opportunity to dine in the heart of the kitchen and simultaneously enjoy a ‘fish-bowl glimpse’ into the chefs’ previously secret domain.  The elegant Planet champagne & cocktail bar attracts local Capetonians as well as hotel guests.  The bar spills out onto a magnificent garden terrace, allowing guests to take full advantage of the beautiful African night sky. 

Combine a stay at the Mount Nelson with a classic luxury Safari in Botswana staying in Safari Lodges managed by the same Team as The Mount Nelson.

The hotel is situated just 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.  Air-conditioned chauffer drive vehicles can be arranged on request and complimentary return shuttles are offered to the V&A Waterfront and Cape Town International Convention Centre.
