I keep coming back to this incredible gem of a hotel :) Everything works! When you arrive you already feel welcome. During my stay the staff keeps surprising me with their smiles, positive attitude and helpfulnes (and I have stayed here several times, but I keep being happily surprised). The pool is just great and even though it is windy... More

Upon arrival we were very pleasantly surprised as the front exterior was an elegant period building beautifully lit with lush gardens (this was also throughout the whole complex) Abigail and Phil immediately greeted us, checked us in, took care of our luggage and showed us to an outdoor table in a chic area over looking the two pools paved with...

This is a hotel built around swimming pools and other outdoor areas. My room was adequate with a comfortable bed but it was not the sort of room to enjoy in and of itself. It was basically a concrete box with one uncomfortable chair. The pools are attractive and there seemed to be plenty of room for guests to lounge... More

Just stayed two weeks at The Glen, following a close friend's recommendation. I am in the Hospitality Industry myself and it is well known that many of us struggle to relax and enjoy staying in Hotels as we know the business. However this was far from the case for me staying at this little Gem. From start to finish the... More

This hotel is brimming with attentive friendly and competent staff. We were privileged enough to stay in the penthouse suit which was stunning. There is a distinct feeling of pride around the place. The breakfasts were awesome and the sauna was set to a good temperature. Didn't take advantage of the Spa. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.... More

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
