Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel
Follow in the footsteps of Winston Churchill, John Lennon and Leonardo diCaprio with a stay in this iconic retreat. The Belmond Mount Nelson has long been regarded one of Cape Town’s top luxury hotels, and for good reason. Set against the dramatic backdrop of Table Mountain, this elegant hotel is an oasis of calm and elegance right at the heart of the city.
From the moment you arrive, you’re made to feel welcome with old-fashioned friendly yet professional service. Accommodation options include luxury rooms (some with balconies), spacious suites and romantic garden cottages. The grounds are magnificent, the neat lawns leading out past lovely fountains and fragrant rose gardens. There are 2 heated swimming pools with plenty of sun loungers and sneaky Table Mountain views.
Breakfasts at the Mount Nelson offer an amazing spread! As for their famous High Tea, it’s an experience not to be missed – either in the beautiful lounge or out on the terrace overlooking the gardens. Try a signature cocktail at the Planet Bar, or treat yourself to a visit (or two) to the Librisa Spa. When you’re ready to explore, you can walk straight to the Company Gardens or Kloof Street with its buzzing restaurants and sidewalk cafes.
