Overview of Mount Nelson, A Belmond Hotel, Cape Town

Perhaps the most famous of Cape Town’s hotels, the Mount Nelson, A Belmond Hotel, Cape Town has been delivering its famous blend of warm hospitality and fine living for over a century. Set in nine acres of landscaped gardens with Table Mountain as its backdrop, the ‘Nellie’ – as some prefer to call this award-winning hotel – is within walking distance of many of Cape Town’s attractions yet is far enough from the city centre to provide a tranquil retreat at the end of a busy day.

Call on the Guest Services team and ask them to suggest and arrange outings in the beautiful city of Cape Town and its surrounding areas which include Table Mountain, the Cape Winelands and Cape Point. Families are most welcome at the Mount Nelson, A Belmond Hotel, Cape Town: the hotel’s expansive grounds are ideal for children to play in and there is a range of facilities for children as well as activities to keep little hands busy.

    We had a good time in South Africa. The Mount Nelson is lovely and Gondwana was beautiful and the staff very friendly. We didn’t get see all of the big 5, but still, the drives were great and the layout is great.
