Belmond Mout Nelson Hotel - Le Cap

An oasis of calm within Cape Town’s beating heart

Uncover the soul of South Africa at this vibrant hideaway with a star-studded history

At the foot of Table Mountain is an inviting hotel, painted pink for peace in 1918. Within, the magic of a bygone era awaits. Delight in exquisitely restored interiors with quirky modern touches. Capture the light with a painting masterclass or unwind and indulge at the Librisa Spa. We guarantee an unforgettable stay.

Restored colonial grandeur with an irresistibly modern twist : after the buzz of Cape Town, our airy sanctuaries beckon.
Sip coffee from cosy seating. Admire vibrant native artwork. Settle among local weavings and comfy leather furniture. Unwind on sun-spotted balconies and breathe South Africa in.
