Set in the vibrant heart of Cape Town, The Belmond Mount Nelson is one of the most iconic hotels in South Africa. Located in the leafy suburb of Gardens at the foot of Table Mountain, this elegant pink hotel offers sophistication in an unmatched garden setting.

The V & A Waterfront, Table Mountain Cableway, Camps Bay and Clifton beaches and city centre are all an easy drive. Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is 15 minutes away.
Food is a big part of your stay at Mount Nelson. The Planet Restaurant and Bar, a glittering, chic and contemporary space to enjoy wonderful dishes and cocktails; or the Oasis Bistro, perfect for long, lazy breakfasts or invigorating afternoon pick-me-ups, and a full pool service; step into the hotel’s kitchen at The Chef's Table to watch in wonder as dishes are prepared right before your eyes—then uncover the inspiration behind each creation (Menus change daily according to the seasonal ingredients available locally); or their famous morning and afternoon high tea served in the lounge, on the terrace or around the garden fountain - a real Cape Town institution.
