There is a lovely little story behind Timeless, the Belmond Mount Nelson signature fragrance used for our in-room amenities, created by Charlotte Rhys.

This is what Charlotte Rhys had to say about the creation of Timeless .... (and we feel somewhat flattered):

"This unique fragrance captures the hotel's sophisticated elegance with a classic timelessness that epitomises its distinctive character.
A medley of notes echoes the poise and grace of the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel's character. We combined a bouquet of joyfully fruity top notes with base notes of warm sensual amber, earthy musk and calming cedarwood, to achieve a lusciously elegant fragrance.

It is named Timeless, a reflection of the timeless serenity, beauty and style of the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel.

We had dinner in your Lounge last night at the Mount Nelson. We were a noisy bunch of seven journalists celebrating a book launch. Your waiter John was superb and actually enhanced a wonderful evening. He was calm and unobtrusive and dealt with the slight chaos very well, tidying up the mess we were making, coping with changed food and drink orders, and asking before topping up our wine. We had a nice conversation with him and liked him very much. We eat out a lot and we found John exceptional, quietly on top of every detail, very smart, very likeable and a young guy who will surely go far. We wish him well.

Such a nice hotel with awesome history to know. Staff is great and food is lovely. Every room has a great view of the surrounding areas and Table Mountain.

Can't speak for the hotel, but the high tea is amazing! Such a treat and totally worth it for a special occasion.

My favourite is having drinks in the garden. Pricier than most but worth it if you want service and quality.

What an experience to have #AfternoonTea at the Nellie! We have to thank the Duchess of Bedford, it is said, for this tradition. At the time, the aristocracy ate a HUGE breakfast and then a gigantic dinner, often only 12 hours later. She was peckish in the late afternoon, and thus secretly asked her Chef to prepare some dainty sandwiches and cakes with tea for consumption in her private chambers, and invited her closest criends to enjoy the clandestine repast, as it was frowned upon in this age for ladies to indulge in meals at the "wrong time"! This " peculiarity" grew so popular that the newly-opened grand Langham Hotel in London adopted the custom, starting their first service in 1865! And that is PRECISELY what you experience here...the grandeur of me-time in the most relaxed and sedate surroundings. Granted, it isn't cheap. Not by a long shot! But what price perfection?! The array of pastries, cakes, sandwiches, macarons, pies, petit fours, Madelines, mousses, parfaits, biscuits and more is quite frankly mesmerising. There is even a " Tea Ambassador" who will guide you expertly through the offerings from various plantations...wow. Just wow. Oh, and it doesn't hurt the Pink Palace is drop-dead gorgeous..the Gardens! The Pool! The views of the City! This is most certainly @jamescapetown TOP FAVE and something you simply MUST experience in Cape Town...at least once!! 😜🌴👻🐙🌍💜🌲😎🎭

A colonial classic. Great high tea spread. Since becoming Belmond, service has dropped and value (especially food) has degraded.
