Winston Churchill called it “a most excellent establishment”; John Lennon meditated in its lush grounds, and modern-day celebrities from Leonardo di Caprio to Charlize Theron have breakfasted on its sunny balconies. This is Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel, an iconic resort that has been welcoming guests for nearly 120 years.

Our location is outstanding, with dramatic Table Mountain just behind and the city’s pulsating attractions just beyond the stone-columned gates, installed in 1925 to welcome the Prince of Wales.

We have 198 fabulous, individually designed rooms and suites to choose from, all offering different moods and views. Couples find secluded bliss in the garden cottage suites, decorated with oversized couches, fireplaces and Venetian mirrors. Families feel at home in our spacious, light-filled suites or interconnecting rooms.

An array of activities keeps all ages entertained, from heated pools and a children’s club to painting classes, tennis coaching and yoga.

Explore the expansive grounds, a gorgeous mix of manicured lawns, historic palms and fragrant rose gardens. Nourish body and soul at Librisa Spa with a range of holistic, African-inspired treatments. Indulge in Chef Rudi Liebenberg’s out-of-this-world cuisine at Planet Restaurant, or book a seat at his coveted Chef’s Table for a truly interactive experience.
