Mount Nelson

Old - world charm and opulence await the discerning guest at the Mount Nelson Hotel. Opened in 1898, this well located hotel is the epitome of elegant establishments. Delectable afternoon teas, magnificent gardens and excellent facilities ensure that Cape Town’s oldest hotel remains a much celebrated icon of a bygone era. A favourite with figures such as John Lennon and Winston Churchill, the Mount Nelson continues to delight its modern- day patrons.

Commanding stone-walled columns mark the entrance to this historical establishment, which is well located in the city bowl of Cape Town. Popular shopping streets, restaurants and historical attractions are all accessible on foot- while a quick shuttle connects guests to the waterfront. Popular beaches like Clifton, Camps Bay and Llandudno are all a short drive away while other attractions like Kirsten Bosch Gardens and the Table Mountain cable-car are also easily accessible. The Mount Nelson makes an excellent base for exploring Cape Town and the surrounding area. Back at the hotel there is a fantastic range of facilities for all ages and interests. The Mount Nelson is one of the few Cape Town hotels to feature large and heated swimming pools – making it popular with families, though an adult only pool is available for more tranquil swimming.

Individually and stylishly decorated, each of the furnished rooms contain twin or king-size beds, writing desks, and comfortable seating. Air-conditioning, digital safes, clock radios, satellite TV, internet access, direct-dial telephone and well-equipped en-suite bathrooms are all included in your luxury five-star experience.

Secluded garden cottage suites complete with fashioned fireplaces and venetian mirrors are ideal for couples’ romantic stays and families are well suited to the beautiful interconnecting family rooms. Exquisitely manicured lawns with aromatic rose bushes provide a tranquil setting against the dramatic backdrop of majestic Table Mountain.

Exotic Cape cuisine and fine dining experiences offering a vast array of culinary specials are appreciated at the lavishly decorated Lord Nelson restaurant with its attractive botanical wall hangings and crystal chandelier – a first-class romantic scene reminiscent of Colonial Cape Town in years gone by. A fun and interactive experience at Chef Rudi Liebenberg’s Chef’s Table can be pre-arranged at time of booking.

The light-filled Oasis Bistro welcomes breakfast diners and gastronomic adventures alike. Celestial – themed Planet Bar is a popular upmarket meeting place for lovers of sundowner cocktails and pre-dinner champagne.

An array of activities keep guest entertained – children’s clubs, painting classes, tennis lessons and yoga sessions. Golfing facilities are available for keen golfers and the central location of the Mount Nelson hotel means that accessibility to main attractions such as Cape Point, Table Mountain, infamous Robben Island and the Cape Town Waterfront is easy, just to name a few. Librisa Spa pampers guests with its range of holistic, African-inspired treatments.
