This is a neat guesthouse in Sea Point. Beyond value for money and excellent location but what was most welcome was the personal attention that Werda and her staff give the residents. I ended up in the smallest room due to late booking over the new year period but I did see that they have bigger more luxurious rooms/ suites...

Cape Nelson Guest house is a perfect place to explore Cape Town being close to all the touristy spots like Table mountain, V &A waterfront, aquarium, as well as some of the best beaches in the Cape like Clifton and Landudno. Shops and restaurants are in walking distance. The rooms are small but comfortable . The staff and hostess were...

Good quality linen, great location, street parking in front of the B&B. My room had a double bed, a kettle, and a bathroom with a shower. I walked to Main road in Sea Point for a pizza, really close to all amenities. My room had a double door which opened onto the breakfast courtyard 😳 and had no window. Breakfast...

This was the first stop in a family trip to South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. We were there to "collect" ourselves after a long, long flight from Los Angeles. The property is just excellent. Large rooms, good food, attentive staff that is always helping out. I would definetly stay there again.

My wife, parents and in laws stayed here for 5 nights. It was great. All the staff are very friendly and the owners, Phillip and Welda, are lovely people. The rooms are big and spacious. We didn't get a chance to use the spa as it was too cold but it looks nice! Highly recommended.

My boyfriend and I were there a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed our stay at Cape Nelson The room we stayed in was beautiful and clean, only issue is that there was guests in the room upstairs and you can hear them walk around. Otherwise everything was amazing. This place is great value for money and would come back...
