Features
Traditional style, Great views
Since 1899, this pink-faced colonial beauty—a short stroll away from the Company Gardens—has been the reigning queen of Cape Town’s hotels. Originally built by a shipping magnate to host wealthy Europeans, “The Nellie” has hosted celebrities like Richard Geere and Oprah Winfrey, and is now operated by Belmond. The property includes nine acres of sweeping lawns and rose bushes, as well as bubbling stone fountains and swimming pools. The 209 high-ceilinged guest rooms are sophisticated aeries, decked out in white- and cream-colored damask, dark-wood antique furnishings, and (in many cases) dramatically canopied beds. Colonial-era tradition is observed during afternoon tea service in the Lounge, or go for modern-day indulgence with a treatment at the Librisa Spa.
