Spent 5 nights here at the end of our SA holiday. It really can't be faulted: the service is attentive, the food caters for all members of the family and is it good value for money! The staff are incredibly helpful, offering advice on where to visit and other restaurants to go to; 'Lisie' in the Oasis restaurant was particularly... More

We had booked two rooms on a family special, with requests for interconnected and main building. We did not only receive this but also an upgrade to fabulous and huge deluxe rooms on the top floor, overlooking Table Mountain. The rooms were renovated, well equipped and in top condition. It was very quiet despite being just above the main entrance.... More

Our recent stay at the Mount Nelson (Nellie to the locals) was excellent. The rooms, service and food were all 5 star level. The staff went out of their way to make us feel wanted and appreciated. The buffet breakfast was to die for, so be hungry if you seek it out. Numerous types of fruit, meats, pre-cooked and custom... More

Mount Nelson is a beautiful hotel and seems well-run. So well so, in fact, that I thought there was absolutely no need to use the safe in the room. It turns out that I was (probably) wrong. When I went to check out, I found my credit cards in my suitcase but the cash (previously clipped to the credit cards)... More

We stayed at the Mount Nelson for just under a week. Upon our arrival we were offered some sparkling wine and were pleasantly surprised by being upgraded to one of the small bungalows with a private garden. All the staff without exception was lovely and really helpful. During our stay we enjoyed many nights outside on the terrace sipping their... More

I stayed here for 2 nights on business. The room is very nice with full of traditional items as room decoration. I particularly liked the extremely spacious bathroom. I saw some tiny ants but didn't bother me much. The service is excellent. Everything I used in the morning was taken care of and back in the original spot by mid... More

Staying at this hotel is one of my favorite memories of travelling to South Africa. Beautiful colonial estate with gorgeous breakfast terrace and garden, wonderful spacious rooms and excellent staff. I attended a wedding at this hotel, and stayed for 4 days. On arrival I was upgraded to the most wonderful suite across the main building separated from my friends... More

Great location, staff, and unexpectedly, a fantastic breakfast buffet Exterior a little dated but rooms with huge windows/ doors opening to great view makes up for it. Extremely helpful front desk, concierge and bell staff
