Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel
Cape Town, South Africa
The very height of refinement, the Belmond Mount Nelson takes you on a rose-tinted trip down memory lane. Nicknamed ‘the Nellie’, this pink hotel takes you back to a bygone era of aristocratic activities like afternoon tea, painting masterclasses, and convivial strolls in its glorious gardens, with Table Mountain views. Even the avant-garde dining of its Lord Nelson Restaurant comes with a side order of history, with its bust of the Admiral carved from timbers from HMS Victory. The service and style may be timeless, but the features are decidedly current, with luxuries like Librisa Spa, two heated pools, tennis courts, and dedicated clubs and zones for children and teens. And the location gives you all the contemporary colour of central Cape Town, with excellent bars and restaurants within walking distance, and the V&A Waterfront a complimentary shuttle ride away.
