The Mount Nelson Hotel is set at the very heart of Cape Town, with a wide range of attractions within walking distance. Approach is via the imposing Prince of Wales archway and the famous Palm Avenue.
Located amongst seven acres of lush landscaped gardens, the Mount Nelson Hotel has long been regarded as the jewel of Cape Town's venues. In a city dedicated to hospitality and entertainment, this is no small accolade.
ACCOMMODATION: Each of the 56 suites and 145 bedrooms are individually furnished and provided with fully appointed private bathrooms. Non smoking rooms, inter-leading rooms, executive business rooms, suites and paraplegic facilities and rooms with balconies are available on request. Telephones are provided in bathrooms, at bedsides and on each writing desk. Each has a voice-mail, wake-up call as well as a data port facility.
A unique feature of the Mount Nelson Hotel is its four 'wings' (referred to as the Palm Avenue Wing) of luxurious accommodation, all set in private gardens planted with lavender and iceberg roses. The Palm Avenue wing - Taunton House, Green Park, Helmsley and Hof Villa - is reached from the main house via the leafy Palm Avenue. Guests staying in these rooms enjoy unrivalled serenity and seclusion while residing at the Mount Nelson Hotel.
RESTAURANT: Our chefs are constantly inspired by the superb variety of fish, fruit and wine from the abundant ocean, valleys and vineyards of the Cape. Add the exotic touch of traditional Malay cuisine, with its French, Dutch and Eastern influences, and experience the true taste of the Cape.
LEISURE ACTIVITIES: Enjoy playing tennis on the two, all weather, hard tennis courts in the hotel grounds, play golf in the nearby golf courses or take a dip in a choice of two heated pools.
