Nestling at the foot of Table Mountain and set in 9 acres of lush gardens, the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel is one of Cape Town's most established and distinguished hotels, offering unparalleled tradition, history and luxury.
There is a wide range of sports and leisure amenities, including 2 heated swimming pools, golf practice net, floodlit tennis courts and a fully equipped gymnasium with personal trainers. The Librisa spa offers a selection of pampering treatments for guests' enjoyment.
The Oasis Bistro offers sun-splashed lunches and an extensive breakfast buffet, while the glittering Planet Restaurant and Planet Bar are chic, contemporary spaces in which to enjoy out-of-this-world dishes and cocktails. Or embark on a journey of culinary discovery with a unique dining experience at the 'Chef's Table' - an interactive culinary experience featuring the hotel's finest cuisine and wines.
A definate 'must' during your stay here, however, is to sample the famous Mount Nelson afternoon tea - a true institution in Cape Town - served either in the lounge, on the terrace or around the garden fountain.
Located in the Main Building, the Oasis Wing and Green Park, the Deluxe Rooms have a unique design and personality. Some rooms offer a balcony, while all enjoy an inviting marble en-suite bathroom.
The Suites offer an indulgent sanctuary. Sumptuous beds and en-suite bathrooms with a separate shower and bath complete the experience. The Suites are each individually designed, and can be found across the hotel’s 7 wings.
Finally, a row of restored historic cottages, adjacent to the secluded pool, make up the Garden Cottage Suites.

Directions For Drivers
From Cape Town International Airport: Proceed from the airport buildings onto the N2 highway, staying on the right-hand side of the left lane in the direction of 'City' or 'Cape Town' (the other direction will be 'Somerset West').
Continue along the N2 highway past all the off-ramps and after you pass the Liesbeek Parkway off-ramp, get into the lane 2nd from the right, following the signs to the City.
You will pass under 2 bridges and at the 3rd bridge the road forks with the option of an off-ramp to the left or a bend to the right. Follow the bend to the right and the N2 will then merge with the M3 to form 5 lanes of traffic - the road then forks with the 2 left lanes forming Philip Kgosana Drive and the 2 right lanes forming Eastern Boulevard. Ensure that you move into one of the 2 left lanes as you need to proceed along Philip Kgosana Drive.
Continue along Philip Kgosana Drive which winds its way around the foot of Table Mountain.
As you pass under an overhead walkway, slow down as just before the overhead road bridge you need to take the off-ramp left into Mill Street (if you continue under the bridge, the road becomes Roeland Street).
Continue along Mill Street (which then changes its name to Orange Street), passing through 2 sets of traffic lights.
Before the pedestrian traffic lights on your left-hand side you will see the landmark Prince of Wales Pillars, signifying the entrance to Mount Nelson Hotel.
