Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel

​Each of the 57 suites and 144 spacious bedrooms are individually furnished. For increased seclusion, four cottages in Sydenham Terrace have been meticulously restored and are set in private gardens with a swimming pool.

An oasis of calm at the foot of Table Mountain, Belmond Mount Nelson is a unique hideaway within the vibrant heart of Cape Town. Painted pink for peace in 1918, the hotel has become an icon and exudes the magic of a bygone era with exquisitely restored interiors and quirky modern touches.
