The most relaxing break. A wonderful oasis in the city. Beautifully kept premises. Kind, attentive staff. Would highly recommend it as a peaceful getaway. The best pool in the city, and the perfect way to escape scorching Summer days. All-round winner!

A true oasis...beautiful location with amazing staff that try their absolute best to make your stay flawless. A generous hotel that goes above and beyond to exceed your expectations.

Tranquil oasis in the heart of Cape Town offering everything one needs, once here there is no need to leave unless you want a change of restaurant and there are plenty in walking distance. The hotel setting and gardens, as well as its interiors, are beautiful and it's superbly run with the whole atmosphere being highly professional yet in an easy and relaxed manner. The staff are wonderful! Our lunches and dinners were excellent at both Planet Bar and The Terrace. In all respects The Mount Nelson is an outstanding hotel and we very much look forward to returning.

Stay was flawless from start to finish. World class service from phenomenal staff. Breathtaking immaculate gardens. This hotel is best described as a sanctuary. Away from the hustle and bustle of tourists yet conveniently located in a lovely neighbourhood. Will definitely aspire to return to this prestigious property. The legendary "nellie" is definitely worth a visit...
