The Mother City's pink-clad grande dame

Standing beneath Table Mountain, the Mount Nelson Hotel is the stuff of Mother City legend, tracing back its history to a time when high-class extravagance was held in the highest regard. The hotel’s staggering reputation for elegant opulence still draws the famous and affluent to its storied halls and exquisitely maintained gardens.

Partake in the signature Mount Nelson high tea, and nibble on some of the locally-inspired snacks and treats. Apart from the traditional pastimes in the hotel itself, its position in the heart of Cape Town means that guests have direct access to modern activities including restaurants and bars along the fashionable Kloof Street and clubs on the buzzing Long Street.

With multiple Rooms and Suites to choose from, guests will have the option of everything from elegant Deluxe Rooms, through historic Garden Cottage Suites, to the grand and luxurious Presidential Suite and its marbled entrance hall, private dining room and expansive bedroom. The contemporary comforts on hand in the hotel are endless, whether it’s heated swimming pools, a boutique, a fitness centre, activity centres for children, or even a hair salon. Add a stopover in Kruger National Park and a visit to Victoria Falls to your itinerary to experience the best Southern Africa has to offer.
