Arriving early for check in, I was kindly upgraded to a one bedroom suite which was vast, ta

Another lovely one night stay before our flight home to London following a superb two week visit in other parts. Our suite was in the Helmsley Building and very well appointed as one might expect. We enjoyed the traditional tea that rivals The Ritz and chose an informal evening

We stayed at the Belmond Mount Nelson for a couple of nights on our trip to Capetown. It was an excellent experience - everything one can hope to expect from a city 5 star experience.

The campus is beautiful, the hotel is set in the middle of sprawling green lawns and the rooms

Traveling there next month. How is the water situation now? Are the pools open?
Both pools are full and heated which was a first as every other hotel we stayed in had small unheated pools! The two pools are fabulous but I loved the pool set on the beautiful gardens opposite the breakfast:/lunch terrace. Enjoy Mount Nelson - it is the best hotel in Cape Town by a mile

Hi I wonder if someone at the hotel would be kind enough to provide an email address as we would like to make some restaurant reservations. We are arriving on the 17th March. Thank you
Sorry. I saw this too late.

why the price is hidden !! i need to book my flight so just let me know the price of hotel ?
Dear nono h, Our rates work on a 'best available rate' system, thus the rates are determined by quite a few factors (your date of stay, duration etc) but if you log onto our website and insert your dates, the rates do show up. Alternatively email our reservations department with your inquiry, and we can advise you on the availability and rate offers over your requested dates. Apologies for any inconvenience this has caused you. Warm regards Louise

"All rooms are great but one with a balcony is lovely"
"The view of the pool is lovely, so I'd request a room on that side of the hotel."
