Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel

Timeless and authentic resort hotel in the heart of Cape Town

Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel

Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel is a garden estate located in the heart of Cape Town’s cultural center, near sightseeing attractions and the city’s best beaches. Two heated swimming pools, rolling lawns and rose gardens make this an urban sanctuary. Each of the 198 guestrooms and suites is individually styled, and Librisa Spa (also a destination day spa) offers a bouquet of holistic treatments. The Planet Bar and Restaurant serves contemporary international cuisine, the Oasis Bistro features Mediterranean-inspired dishes and local classics for lunch and dinner, and the afternoon tea served in the hotel lounge is a signature experience.

Hotel Tip

All the locals make for great people-watching during afternoon tea. The Mount Nelson is tucked in a real neighborhood — poke around nearby shops and restaurants. –Eleanor Hardy Louisville, Kentucky
