Product Information > Luxury Hotels > Mount Nelson, Cape Town, South Africa > 209 Bedrooms > Grade: Platinum
It is a cliché to describe the Mount Nelson as the Grand Dame of Cape Town’s hotels, but not without justification, as her heritage extends back to 1899, when well-healed travellers coming off the liners, were accommodated and served high tea in an elegant manner.A starry list of guests through the years includes British Royalty, Winston Churchill, Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle, Laurens van der Post, Anthony Sher.
 

More recently, Hollywood actors Pierce Brosnan, Michael Caine, Richard Gere and Donald Sutherland, Richard E. Grant and Charlize Theron. Then there’s the socialites and models like Paris Hilton and Kate Moss, singers Shirley Bassey, Robbie Williams and David Bowie. Recently, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon used the hotel as a base while shooting Invictus., with Morgan Freeman playing Nelson Mandela.It is quite common to see such well known faces in the cosmopolitan, chic Planet Bar because the Mount Nelson remains the preferred choice of the discerning international jet-set as well as sophisticated locals.

 

The uniformed staff standing alert under the pillared portico gate and traditional red post box announce that you have arrived at the Mount Nelson, while the imposing palm-lined entrance drive leads to the romantic pastel pink washed buildings and substantial landscaped gardens of this urban retreat.

 
 

With Table Mountain as a backdrop, the Mount Nelson remains the most iconic luxury hotel in Cape Town. It enjoys a convenient central location adjacent to the calm of the Company’s Garden and historic museums, while on the other hand being right in the heart of the city.


Rest and relaxation are assured in the grounds by the large pool under a shady palm. The hotel has two heated pools, the Oasis Pool being one of the largest in South Africa, around which refreshments are served. Also to be found is a fitness centre with personal trainers, two tennis courts, golf practice area, Yoga Bliss studio and the new Librisa Spa with eight treatment rooms of heated marble slabs and innovative tandem facilities.

The long tradition of fine dining continues at the Mount Nelson’s Cape Colony Restaurant, serving contemporary dishes and Asian fusion in a vaulted ceiling restaurant of large crystal chandelier and tromp l’oeil murals. The Oasis offers bistro-style al fresco menus and holds popular Sunday Jazz Brunches with live music. The renowned Afternoon Tea at the Nellie is served in a large lounge and is a real treat for lovers of savoury nibbles and decadent pastries.

The Mount Nelson has 201 individually decorated spacious rooms and suites. Luxury Rooms exude old-world charm while Superior Rooms are elegant. Executive Suites have open-plan lounges, Deluxe Suites private balconies or gardens and Penthouse Suites marble entrance halls. The most secluded choice, ideal for honeymooners, is one of eight restored historic Garden Cottage Suites adjacent its own pool each having a private rose garden, patio and verandah. Decor features four-poster beds with marble bathrooms, Venetian mirrors and toile wallpaper, while a mini-library and dining area beckon. Fresh-cut flowers speak of an attention to detail.
