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

Dear JohnB_SA Thank you for your lovely detailed review. I have pleasure in confirming that we have recently made some adjustments to the gate and the runner which has resulted in the gate being much quieter than before. We can only improve on the feedback we receive and we truly appreciate yours. We hope to see you again in the... 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
