The Mount Nelson Hotel opened its doors in 1899 and through the years has been the recipient of numerous international awards. It is a favourite haunt of both tourists and locals wanting relaxation, entertainment or, simply, accommodation in South Africa.
The Mount Nelson Hotel (or "The Nellie") is centrally located to Cape Town. Pathways through the landscaped gardens lead from the Mount Nelson Hotel’s main building to six separate wings housing various rooms and suites. Furnished in grand opulence, each wing is unique and has its own guest areas and facilities- some wings are for families while others offer ultimate privacy.
High tea on the veranda is what makes the Mount Nelson Hotel an institution with the locals. An indulgent affair of cucumber sandwiches and decadent chocolate cakes set the mood, encouraging all those sweet toothed lovers to attend without fail. Drop in at the Planet Champagne Bar and join Cape Town’s bold and beautiful for a glass of bubbly before dinner at The Cape Colony. There you can enjoy a serving of the finest South European and South African influenced cuisine.
Sporting enthusiasts will be kept well occupied at the Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town, as tennis courts, heated swimming pools, a golf practice net and a well-equipped gym are open to all guests. For weary and tired souls, pampering is also available at a body care clinic and hair salon on the premises.
