***Winner announced! Congratulations to Raeygan Tamara Bollaert who won this fabulous prize.
When it comes to Cape Town icons, few compare to the majestic Mount Nelson. Set in the vibrant heart of the city at the foot of Table Mountain, this luxurious hotel is a tranquil oasis that delightfully combines old-world hospitality and service with modern creature comforts.
A stay at this five-star landmark is the stuff once-in-a-lifetime dreams are made of. And now, you and your lucky plus one could turn this dream into a reality, and experience the true magic of this plush sojourn by simply entering our competition.
When you arrive, place your car keys in the hands of a valet and let the uniformed doorman escort you into the lobby. Then, enjoy an afternoon stroll through the hotel’s famed gardens, before savouring a gourmet picnic by the pool: a delightful assortment of local cheeses and artisanal charcuterie served with homemade pickles and tapenades.
In addition to the smorgasbord of nibbles, your poolside spread includes access to the main (heated) swimming pool, your own pool lounger and swimming towel. Do not leave without ordering a glass of bubbly – you’re at The Mount Nelson, after all!
Your home-from-home for the night is an en-suite Deluxe Room, complete with a bath and shower, a sitting area and writing desk, luxury toiletries, a widescreen smart TV, complimentary wifi and air-conditioning.
Breakfast the following morning is served in the hotel lounge or outdoor terrace, whose spectacular views of the gardens and mountain beyond will end your stay in the most fitting way. Those looking to stay in their robes a little longer can also opt for in-room dining.
