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.

The Nkanyezi Gallery will be open to the public every day and all works are for sale.

Keep your eye on our updates for exciting future artist announcements.

You will have the most amazing experience. From the front desk staff, so the chef's, to the masseuse everyone is professional, exceptional, and do everything to make your stay wonderful and to make you feel like the most important person in the world. The rooms are wonderful, the views amazing, the staff incredibly helpful. Celebrated my birthday in style and it was the most relaxing experience I've had in a very long time. The food was beyond exceptional and the chefs made us feel like at home. We ate at the Chefs table, which is situated inside the kitchen. It was cosy, intimate and a the things they do with food still amazes me. All around the best home away from home experience I have ever had. My hats off to everyone there. You truly made me feel special.

So we visited them for a high-tea on Valentine's day, made a booking and went there as a surprise visit for the fiancée. We both absolutely loved it! Widest range of teas, much more than I expected. We ended up spending 4 hours there just drinking tea and enjoying the treats that come with it. Then went and walked through the garden before leaving.

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.

The place is very clean, well organised and great ambience. Gardens are magnificent. Breakfast is great. You would not want more.

High tea at the Mount Nelson is an experience. Be sure to book ahead for a terrace table and soak up the atmosphere. The waitress who served us was attentive with great knowledge about the teas. Highly recommended.

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