Both pools are full and heated which was a first as every other hotel we stayed in had small unheated pools! The two pools are fabulous but I loved the pool set on the beautiful gardens opposite the breakfast:/lunch terrace. Enjoy Mount Nelson - it is the best hotel in Cape Town by a mile

Dear nono h, Our rates work on a 'best available rate' system, thus the rates are determined by quite a few factors (your date of stay, duration etc) but if you log onto our website and insert your dates, the rates do show up. Alternatively email our reservations department with your inquiry, and we can advise you on the availability and rate offers over your requested dates. Apologies for any inconvenience this has caused you. Warm regards Louise
