Hotel Features. Set on a lush garden estate, the Mount Nelson Hotel occupies a late 19th-century colonial-style property with distinctive pink facade, and opens to a wood-panelled reception hung with chandeliers. The hotel extends to two outdoor pools and offers a fitness centre, and the Librisa Spa, housed in three late-Victorian buildings, provides a sauna, steam room, and range of massage and beauty treatments. There is an onsite hair salon and gift shop, and further amenities include 24-hour room service, complimentary garage parking, and a concierge.
The Mount Nelson Hotel offers two dining options: the Cape Colony restaurant with its vaulted ceilings offers contemporary Western and Asian fusion cuisine and hosts live music every evening; overlooking the gardens and pool, the informal Oasis Restaurant with terrace area offers health-focused al fresco dining. Afternoon tea is served in the lounge area, and the chic Planet Champagne Bar features a marble fireplace and metallic-leather seating, and opens to a terrace. A complimentary full-English breakfast is provided. The hotel offers two floodlit tennis courts and a golf practice net.
