Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 April 2012

I am lucky enough to be staying at the Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town, and it is like stepping back in time! Chef Rudi prepared an amazing meal paired with some of South Africa's finest wines and the vanilla dessert was beyond compare! Kudos to the entire staff for making the stay so memorable!

Great Tea selections and buffet finger food at a classy hotel setting.
An enjoyable relaxed afternoon stop if you are the type to have the time and the taste to slow down once in a while and smell the roses.

I was surprised with the Morning tea or high tea. The environment is good and the dinner at the Planet was wonderful.

The hotel reminded me of something you'd see in the movie gone with the wind. Large sprawling grounds, had a real southern feel to it. The staff were great, I have no idea how they do this but I was always greeted by name when I passed the front desk. I like that. We had the hotel arrange a car and driver for us for two days and had a great trip touring through the wine country and then down to the cape of good hope. I would highly recommend this. We had a private tour, it wasn't crazy expensive and was nice to be able to tour around at our own pace. Room was nice. It faced Table Top Mountain. Overall great place and I would recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing table top mountain.

The Mount Nelson has a warm and friendly ambience and provides a high level of service. The meals in the Planet restaurant had excellent food and wines, particularly if you want to sample interesting meats, beautifully prepared, and local wines.
The small shops in the hotel had very unusual and interesting items for sale and we had difficulty passing them without going in to have another look!
The garden setting with a close view of Table Mountain and Lion's Head is beatiful and well worth strolling through at any time of day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room so you can use the stairs if you want some exercise as the lifts are a bit slow.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel is a timeless and authentic resort hotel located in the heart of Cape Town. With a unique legacy of service excellence based on authentic Cape hospitality, the hotel remains a destination of choice. The hotel's convenient location makes it easy for guests to explore the city centre and its surrounds, and some of South Africa's best beaches. The garden estate setting is an urban sanctuary, complete with two heated swimming pools, rolling lawns, a palm lined avenue and secluded Rose gardens which lend themselves to romance. The abundance of secure wide open space makes families feel at home and encourages children to run free and explore. Several distinctive accommodation wings offer a variety of 198 individually decorated, elegantly appointed rooms and suites. No two rooms are exactly the same, and each annexe offers unique views, mood and style. Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel has played host to countless weddings and milestone celebrations. The glamorous and contemporary Planet Bar and Restaurant offers guests a true South African gastronomic dinner experience, and the newly refurbished Oasis Bistro offers guests a Mediterranean inspired al fresco breakfast and lunch menu overlooking the family pool and gardens. A daily Afternoon Tea served in the hotel lounge is a signature and not to be missed experience. Extending the emphasis on pleasure is Librisa Spa - a destination day spa boasting eight oversized treatment and shower rooms, separate manicure and pedicure rooms, and a sun-splashed conservatory. Treatments are based on the healing power of touch and incorporate products containing local ingredients. ... more   less
