Classy and classic: the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel

By Victor Baker


Updated on

Located right in the heart of Cape Town, the splendid Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel is facing the city’s most recognizable landmark, the jaw dropping Table Mountain. In this stunning setting guests will be totally charmed by the hotel’s opulent suites filled with fascinating artworks or its exquisite gardens where you can just sit back and relax all day long.

The Penthouse Suite is truly one of a kind, featuring a marble entrance hall and its own dining room, with a jaw dropping balcony which offers the best view in the entire hotel. The penthouse suite is traditionally decorated with classy old furniture, crystal light fixtures from the 1930s and a writing desk which has been in the hotel ever since it was opened back in 1899.

Aside from this amazing suite, the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel also offers eight garden cottages among its 201 rooms and suites. The interiors will make you feel like a classic movie star, but this place has every modern convenience and feature you could ask for. There are two swimming pools and tennis courts, a yoga studio with personalized classes and seven golf courses.

No matter what your favorite activity might be, a massage at handsome Librisi Spa is always welcomed. And, just before this rejuvenating visit to the spa, feel free to try out South African cuisine for dinner beneath the vaulted ceilings of the Cape Colony restaurant.
