Belmond Mount Nelson
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.
