Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel

With an interior style that harks back to the earliest years of the 1900s, the selection of rooms and suites at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel has welcomed luminaries as diverse as Winston Churchill and John Lennon. Today this restored colonial masterpiece continues to serve as a sanctuary amid the modern buzz of Cape Town, combining the best of the old and new worlds.

At the foot of Table Mountain, the pleasant rose-scented gardens provide shaded and secluded spaces in which to relax beside the hotel’s famous pastel pink facade, while the verandas and public areas are flooded with natural light throughout the day, ensuring guests can make the most of every minute in this oasis of calm and old-world charm.
