I stayed here for a week on a business trip, during a busy week when CBD accommodation was full, and drove back and forth to town frequently. The location made access to Camps Bay Drive and hence Kloof Nek road into town very easy. The apartment was modern, spacious well maintained and equipped, the reception friendly and efficient, excellent underground... More

We have just returned from two week stay at the Glen Apartments and I cannot rate the place highly enough. The facilities are excellent and the apartments and grounds are kept spotless. We used the Beach Cub at the Bay Hotel which is about a 1000 metres downhill but there is a free shuttle from the hotel. The Beach Club... More

We spent two nights at The Glen in Camps Bay- from the moment we arrived until we left reluctantly two days later we felt as if we were in a small paradise! The setting is magnificent- set against a backdrop of fynbos and wild olives with our own small private pool to cool down in we relaxed and enjoyed the... More

We liked our spacious modern furnished apartment. The Glen Apartments are in walking distance to the beach road od Camps Bay which is quite convenient. The area is safe and calm. The kitchen has everything you need. We have been overall happy. It would be favourable if the pool would be larger and the water warmer. It was so cold... More

Very good appartment! You can order a personal shopping service in advance which is very convenient when you have a late arrival. We loved the appartment on the ground floor nr b3 with a little garden. We did not like the communal pool but we did not mind as we could walk to the beach. Just a short walk. There... More

A great place to stay for sightseeing in Cape Town. All facilities were first class within the apartment- a well appointed kitchen. It even had a British electric socket. It was peaceful, so we slept well. We liked eating out in the evening in Camps Bay with lots of good restaurants to choose from. On the downside, the pool was... More

The Glen has fantastic views. It is modern and light and bright, the decor is fabulous and you can walk through a 35 acre forest reserve (national park) right across the road. In all my many visits to Cape Town I had never heard of The Glen park so it was wonderful to discover a new place. Shops are close... More

It is a good location but the walk up from Camps Bay is quite steep. The views are spectacular and there is a good choice of eateries at very reasonable prices. The gated apartments are really nice, furnished to a high spec. The reception staff are helpful and friendly. Easy to get in and out of Cape Town and pretty... More

The Glen is a good example of a perfect holiday stay. The overall setup of the apartment is brilliant and if I could, I would purchase a place like that as a holiday home. The family was impressed and definitely want to return. The room views were extraordinary and the stay was peaceful. I would recommend this hotel to my... More

The Glen apartments are actually right next to a forest glen and are set up against a hill. Make no mistake, even though it is holiday accommodation, it is at the end of the day just apartments, The one we stayed in was well appointed for the self catering set with a well stocked kitchen with all the mod cons...
