Glenhaven cottage is a vacation paradise, Sue Joustra, is one of the best hostess I have met in a very long time. Your comfort is primary at Glenhaven, your room is stocked with so much literatures to assist you with the various tourist attractions Cape Town has to offer, you are likely not able to go through the entire stock....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Glenhaven Cottage in December of 2013. The cottages are very well placed, allowing for easy access to some of the great attractions of the whole of Cape Town. We were also very well looked after at Glenhaven and we look forward to coming back sometime soon.

This is an outstanding place to stay. The location is fabulous - we walked to Newlands village to the shops, wine bars and restaurants, and Cavendish Square is 2 blocks away. Despite its proximity to everything, it was peaceful and quiet. The apartment was spacious, very well equipped and comfortable. The bathroom and patio are worth noting as they are... More

I spent a week here and cannot fault the hospitality and location. Sue made sure that you had everything you needed and the room was spacious. Breakfast was everything you needed. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the cleanliness. The bathroom ceiling was covered in black mould and you could see that someone had wiped the walls as far... More

I'm so grateful to have the uncleanlines of the room you stayed in, brought to my attention, so as to immediately correct the situation. I would so hate for someone else to be subjected to an unclean room and will therefore make sure it never happens again. My apologies that you had to be the one to point it out... More

Six guys, on a Rugby Test weekend, so we were a rather noisy bunch. This was no hassle for Sue, who treated us like family. The rooms are cosy without being small and the location is just perfect. I can definitely recommend this place. Thanks Phil Tregoning

From the moment we arrived at near midnight to receive a warm welcome from Dave, who was standing in for Sue, the proprietor, we knew we were in a home, not a hotel. We were shown to our very well upstairs loft room, which had a good size double bed, a dining table for four in a beautiful sunny nook... More
