Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel
Nestling in a garden estate of tall palms and flowering trees, the hotel is an oasis of elegance at the vibrant city's heart.
Exciting days atop Table Mountain or exploring the winelands can be offset by leisurely hours beside one of the hotel's pools, enjoying a picnic beneath the trees or taking the signature and sumptuous afternoon tea on its beautiful veranda.
There are 85 varied-sized Suites and 124 Superior or Deluxe rooms, all of which combine classic charm with modern luxury.The Deluxe Rooms are larger than the Superior Rooms, with spacious sitting areas, and most offer a view of the gardens, swimming pool or Table Mountain, or have a balcony overlooking the fountain courtyard.
For lunchtime dining we suggest the Oasis restaurant, which sits in a relaxed poolside garden setting. Morning tea and a legendary afternoon tea are served in the Lounge. For the evening the Chef's Table places you in the heart of the hotel kitchen while the Planet Bar and Restaurant offer a contemporary dining experience.
Despite its resort-style atmosphere, the hotel is on Cape Town's contemporary beat, with lively cafes, boutiques and restaurants just outside its doors.
