Anyone who has ever set foot in the „Pink Lady“, as the Mount Nelson Hotel is affectionately called, will understand why it is the first choice for everyone who can afford it. Winston Churchill, Oprah Winfrey, Lenny Kravitz and the Dalai Lama – at Mount Nelson you are in good company. The more than 200 rooms, including 57 suites, with simple to royal interiors, are located in a beautiful British garden at the foot of Table Mountain and in the middle of the city, in the Gardens district, not far from Kloof Street, where there are numerous cafés, restaurants and shops. Opened in 1899 as a hotel of the British Union Castle Steamship Company, the British Colonial heritage has survived time and can still be felt everywhere in the house today, whether the elegant pink Art Nouveau buildings, the British garden, the golf courses and of course the tea time, which not only attracts hotel guests to the afternoon tea in the salon. Tip: Take a walk in the Company Garden directly opposite the hotel, stroll through the enchanting rose garden can and feed the trustful South African squirrels.
