Mount Nelson Hotel

Deluxe An excellent hotel that has rooms with air-conditioning, one or more restaurants that serve very good food, a swimming pool, bars, lounges, room service - all the amenities of a four or five-star international hotel.

The Mount Nelson Hotel is a charming, colonial hotel offering unparalleled tradition, history and luxury. The hotel is situated at the base of Table Mountain in nine acres of lush gardens near to Cape Town's city center and 12 miles from the airport. There are six individual wings, separated from the Main Hotel, each with its own unique character, private gardens and facilities. Each of the 57 suites and 144 bedrooms are individually furnished with private bathrooms.  Fine dining has long been a tradition at the Mount Nelson Hotel and there is a choice of venues, each with its own individual style, for you to enjoy the very best cuisine in Cape Town. The Cape Colony is renowned for its cuisine, prepared with an abundance of fresh local produce and tantalizing spices to surprise and delight the palate. Mediterranean-style al fresco dining is offered in the Oasis Restaurant, and famous Afternoon Teas are served daily in the Lounge. The stylish new bar, Planet, provides the perfect setting for sipping champagne and cocktails under the African night sky.

There are two all weather hard tennis courts in the hotel grounds, a choice of two heated swimming pools, a golf practice net, gymnasium, body care center and hair saloon.  You may like to enjoy a game of golf at one of the many nearby courses.
