We stayed for four nights over new year. The apartment itself was all you could want and even had its own plunge pool. It's only draw backs were a lack of view, no on-site facilities and pretty slow (although very friendly) service. The highlight however was just across the road in the sister hotel, the Camps Bay Retreat, which you... More

We were lucky enough to choose the Glen Apartments for our recent week's Winter Break in Camps Bay. The apartments are a short walk up ( 8 mins ) from the main Sea front, bars and restaurants of Camps Bay. Our apartment was a large two bedroom one with a very large balcony from which you could just see the... More

My husband and I stayed for 6 nights during July with our 3 teenaged kids in a 3 bedroom apartment facing the mountain on the second floor and it was perfect! Each bedroom has its own bathroom and loved the fact that we had a washing machine, dryer and fully equipped kitchen so that we could eat in some of... More

We choose to stay at an apartment versus a hotel, as we were travelling with our baby. We chose a 2bedroom apartment and mentioned a late check-in. On arrival, there was no-one at the reception, and we had to wait for a while, till someone showed up and showed us our rooms. There was no cot and no one to... More

We booked The Glen apartments for their location and price. It was the month of May and they had a nice online promotion. We booked a two bedroom apartment, which was nice and spacious, but it did not have a cozy atmosphere. A few more pictures on the walls, would make a big difference. But this of course did not...

I stayed here a few nights while on holiday with friends. I'll start by saying the apartments are just amazing. Huge and modern, 3 bathrooms for 2 bedrooms, full kitchen with an island, 2 sitting areas and 2 balconies. Absolutely perfect for stays of 5 or more nights. Location-wise it is up a hill in Camps Bay so you can... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and was very impressed with the setting. Very spacious rooms. The only thing that annoyed me was the snobby residents that occupy some of the apartments and that there was no cleaning on bank holiday and the weekend. never heard of that at a 5 star place. But that aside i would go back as... More

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
