Mount Nelson Hotel Attractions
The history of the estate on which the Mount Nelson is built goes back to 1741. Named The Garden of Oudtshoorn, it adjoined the Company's garden, and was granted to a young Dutch Baron Pieter van Rheede van Oudtshoorn, by the Governor of the Cape.
A portion was bought by the Cape Land Company in 1890 to its subsidiary, African Land and Hotels Limited, to build a hotel for the passengers of luxury mailships sailing to and from the Cape. On Wednesday, 1 March 1899, the Mount Nelson opened its doors.
