Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel
Mount Nelson, A Belmond Hotel, is one of the most iconic hotels on the African continent.
An established favourite of South Africa family holidays, this grand old hotel has been welcoming happy guests through its gates for over 100 years, and has played host to many notable names; including John Lennon, Leonard di Caprio and even Sir Winston Churchill.
Nestled in shady, palm-lined gardens, Table Mountain provides a picture-postcard backdrop to the hotel’s pink, art deco facade. The location is in the heart of Cape Town but feels like an oasis of calm, away from the city bustle.
Accommodation is provided in a selection of 198 rooms and suites, all of which have been individually designed and are spread across seven different wings. Family suites and interconnecting rooms are light and spacious, providing a luxurious base to lay the head after a long journey or a day of exploring the Cape.
When not out enjoying the many sights of this spectacular cityscape, guests can enjoy an array of in-house activities, including painting classes, tennis coaching and yoga classes. Parents and couples can enjoy a gin and tonic whilst the children play in the heated pool. Or, for a real treat, check out the Librisa Spa for a range of African-inspired restorative treatments.
