Christmas tree at the Pink Lady

A Christmas Tree

Christmas Day is nearly upon us in Cape Town. In fact, it's about an hour away! In a previous post I commented on how white Christmas trees seem so out of place in Africa. This one at the Mount Nelson Hotel (a.k.a. The Pink Lady) is far more appropriate, don't you think? :)

I visited the Mount Nelson for a quick drink with a friend. If you've never been, then you have to go. The staff are really professional and the service is exactly what you'd expect from a five-star hotel. Although it's a little more expensive than other nearby restaurants, meeting for drinks at the Planet Restaurant or Planet Bar (map) is super-convenient, because while parking in Cape Town is often difficult to find, the hotel provides plenty of free undercover parking (which is awesome if you prefer not returning to a car that's been baking in our hot African summer sun)!

If you celebrate Christmas, allow us to wish you an awesome Christmas Day filled with love and good cheer. If you don't celebrate Christmas, well, then, allow us to wish you an awesome day filled with love and good cheer. ;) Merry Christmas, folks.

    I’ve been lucky. I was a guest of the Mount Nelson 4 times, always diuring Xmas period, when I was travelling as a Tour Leader with my italian groups. Simply fantastic.
    I liked everything, first of all the atmosphere, the service, the rooms, the food, etc.
