Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel Overview

If there is a hotel travellers from all over the world instantly associate with Cape Town, it must be the Belmond Mount Nelson. The hotel is celebrating 100 years in the pink, which outlines two of their most iconic attributes; many years of fascinating history and its eye-catching pink paint (a symbol of peace from 1918). Located in the heart of Cape Town, this property is truly an urban oasis. The heritage buildings are nestled in extensive and plush gardens – it is easy to forget that one is surrounded by South Africa’s second largest metropolis with all its attractions like famous Table Mountain, sandy beaches and wine farms. 


The grounds are home to two heated swimming pools, the spa and probably the most famous high tea ceremony in South Africa – a daily offering of pastries, sweets and tea in traditional Old English style. Guests will enjoy a beautiful mélange of old and new with recent renovations brining a contemporary touch to the interiors. Lovers of design and architecture – and of fine dining for that matter – will especially enjoy the Lord Nelson Restaurant and the Planet Bar.
