Belmond Mount Nelson
Cape Town

A pale pink gem nestled at the foot of Table Mountain, Belmond Mount Nelson is an iconic landmark in its own right, affectionately known by locals as the ‘Nellie’. A mere 14 minute walk from the vibrant city centre (with complementary shuttle to the V&A waterfront), this luxurious hotel boasts a star-studded guest list and a fascinating colonial history.

Guests can enjoy the famous afternoon tea on the terrace (do try the hotel’s own blend) accompanied by piano and local birdsong, and soak up the sun at one of the largest heated pools in the country. Elegant cottages overlook the glorious rose garden offering a truly stylish retreat.

The hotel’s Planet restaurant is at the heart of the city’s dining scene, the contemporary decor providing a glamorous backdrop to Chef Rudi Liebenberg’s celebrated menus featuring the freshest local ingredients. For a memorable romantic dinner, book the private cellar table before curling up by the fire in the Planet Bar with a nightcap.

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
