My partner and I booked a safari trip to South Africa and of course added a stop in Cape Town for a few days. We wanted to choose a place that was not only family friendly and also welcoming to the LGBT community. We received our standard welcome drink upon arrival and immediately felt welcomed. No odd looks or stares. We were thrilled to find his & his robes, slippers and a welcome envelope attached to our champagne bottle addressed to Mr Michael & Ryan when we checked into our room. These types of details are really what sets the Mount Nelson apart from from the rest. We settled in and headed down to afternoon tea - one of the most famous in the world... and we found out why (see pics). We were also treated to the most spectacular buffet breakfast each morning. The property has a beautiful main pool as well as an adults only pool. Their kids club is one of the best I've seen as well.
