01244 897 111
When it first opened in 1899, Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel was designed to emulate the best hotels in Europe - right down to its heated main swimming pool, which was a first in Africa. A century on and it still does. Overlooking the iconic Table Mountain, the magnificent gardens or the fountain courtyard, its elegant Superior and Deluxe Rooms combine historic charm with modern-day luxuries, while its Junior, Studio, One Bedroom and Garden Cottage Suites offer exquisitely furnished, spacious accommodation. The lavish Presidential Suite, meanwhile, offers grand living at its finest: think grand marble entrance hall, handpainted scenic wallpaper, Baccarat crystal, silk fabrics and an antique desk that was a feature of the hotel when it first opened. Each wing boasts its own character, facilities and private gardens, with a character and old-world charm that captivates guests who stay here. The newly renovated Helmsley Wing, is the epitome of elegance and boasts new Family Suites which are just perfect for a family of four to share. In addition, this attractive property boasts a bar, two restaurants and recently updated Children's Club — which is conveniently located near its impressive Librisa Spa. Situated only a short walk from Cape Town's famed Kloof and Long Streets, the city's day and nightlife is right on the hotel's doorstep. Suitable for couples and families alike, Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel is also an excellent base from which to explore the region's many highlights.
