From arrival to departure nothing could be faulted -staff, facilities, cleanliness and just the overall experience. All the staff were helpful and gave sound local advice and help. Much as we loved this place-perhaps we should downgrade our review to prevent it becoming too well liked and used by others!!!!

A piece of luxury nestled between mountain and sea. The entire experience at the Glen was phenomenal. From friendly staff who take the time to learn your name to having the owner Mark personally check in on us to ensure all was in order. Even with Cape Towns rolling power cuts they hooked up the generator and the cappuccinos and... More

This was such an incredible place to stay and really conveniently located in Cape Town. From the time we were picked up from the airport until the time we were dropped back off you felt like you were someone special and not just a guest in the hotel. The rooms and grounds were really cute and the staff was incredible.... More

We arrived at 1 AM and left at about 11 in the morning. Despite the lateness of our arrival, there was someone to help with bags and check us in. We could park our car inside the property for free. Our suite was decently sized and with modern and high end furnishings as was the bathroom which was very spacious.... More

Returning to the Glen is a pleasure - the hotel has only 24 rooms and draws a very friendly crowd. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable and the pool pretty much always has plenty of sun loungers available for the number of people. The staff are attentive and always available to help with recommendations for events or choice of... More

This superb boutique hotel is the perfect place to stay in the centre of Cape Town. I received a very warm welcome and a 'Glen' cocktail on my arrival and was duly invited onto the terrace to wait for my room due to an early flight. Our host professionally explained everything I needed to know about the hotel and their... More

I've had the chance to stay at many 5-star hotels, but the service at The Glen was the best I've ever seen. We spent 2 weeks there and the impression we got is that they truly care for the guests. This charming hotel has a relaxing atmosphere and is also visited by people who pay for the day use of... More

Hello rgs100, Thank you so much for your kind words and glowing review of the hotel. What a pleasure it was to meet you both and thank you for recognising our mission as a 4-star hotel with a 5-star service :-) On a more personal note, thanks for exhausting me on the 8k run, and enjoying the Braai with us....

I loved my stay here. The staff were fantastic and very helpful. The room was beautiful and spacious. I loved the pool area and it was great to come back to a relaxing drink and swim before dinner. The breakfasts were amasing with a huge choice from the menu and the buffet. The variety of fresh fruits gave a colourful,... More

A true boutique hotel, friendly staff, amazing rooms and especially the toiletry supply is great. Stayed here for a day and can't find anything to fault. Perhaps the only things to improve is keeping the music in the passage at a little softer.

This hotel is stylish, sophisticated and the staff are superb! I felt so welcome and the staff couldn't do enough for you, from drinks by the pool to boring dietary requirements, they genuinely like their Guests and you can feel it. Have already booked to return next year and can't wait to do so. I can't recommend it highly enough.
