The Mount Nelson is truly a special hotel. It's physical location affords you an incredible view of Table Mountain. Rooms were spacious and luxuriously appointed with huge bathrooms. The service was outstanding, particularly rom Muchi the concierge who was very helpful in assisting us with planning excursions and hard-to-snag dinner reservations. High tea was a real treat and was even better thanthose I have had in London. We loved the Planet Bar and daily breakfasts, which were impressive and massive! I would highly recommend you stay at the "pink lady."

A fantastic gem in Cape Town, in South Africa, and globally. Beautiful hotel, very well maintained, and top quality in absolutely everything it has, starting with the outstanding courteous, friendly and very professional staff, and going to the food, linen, accommodations, spa, activities, etc. One of the best places I have stayed throughout my 40 year travel journey.

Our stay at the Mount Nelson was magical. From the moment we arrived, we were so happy with the impeccable service and the beauty of the grounds. Not to mention the incredible views with the property being nestled at the base of Table Mountain. It is an incredible escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Cape Town.

Absolutely fantastic property and staff! It’s in a great location and the grounds are breathtaking. They have two heated pools and a great breakfast buffet that everyone rightfully raves about. The rooms are huge and clean and tastefully decorated. Absolutely no complaints about anything, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful getting us whatever we needed within minutes. Highly recommend!
