Built at a time when extravagance and refinement gilded over even the most dire of social problems, the Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town’s most iconic blushing beauty, still excels at making everything rosy. The luxurious five-star’s grace and decorum is the stuff of Mother City legend, and the grande dame’s knack for giving guests a look at life through rose-coloured glasses reaches far beyond her famed pink exterior (fun fact: the hue has a paint colour named in its honour).
Since the opulent hotel – it’s snuggled coyly in the crook of Table Mountain – thrust open its doors in 1899 to the first class passengers of an elite British shipping liner, its storied reputation for providing the rich, famous and well-to-do with a home away from home has preceded it.
Perfect for both leisure and business travellers, most of our spacious Superior Rooms offer views of the hotel gardens or Table Mountain.
Interconnecting rooms are available on request. Each room has a mini-lounge area, writing desk and lavishly equipped en-suite.
Located in the main hotel, these rooms combine classic charm with modern luxury. They are larger than Superior Rooms, with spacious sitting areas, and most offer a view of the gardens, swimming pool or Table Mountain, or have a balcony overlooking the fountain courtyard.
Each has an en-suite with separate shower and bath.
