I just love the place: the stylish rooms and bathrooms, the elegant decoration, the waahooo breakfast, the drinks by the swimming pool, my lovely evening with Phil at the Cape Town City Ballet, the spa, Yan's massage, the "at home with gay friends" feeling atmosphere, the yoga session at Hotdog Yoga close by... And last, but not least: the most... More

We spend almost every 2nd day lazing at this amazing pool and deck area, sipping cocktails, having a breakfast sometimes at 3 or 4pm and always arrive to friendly helpful staff. Everyone we bring along simply love it here. As far as some of the other reviews goes mentioning bad service and other negative feedback... opinions vary, but when you... More

Very trendy Very clean very comfortable. Every staff there and owner would welcome you in person and gave you a welcome drink. The hotel... More

From the moment you set foot into The Glen you realise you are in somewhere special. The welcome by ALL members of staff including the owner Mark is fantastic.The rooms are beautifully furnished and appointed - the bathroom is a treat in itself, with exclusive Rain products provided. The breakfast is gorgeous. Overall, what makes The Glen so very special... More

This is a well run stylish gay hotel. The rooms are beautiful with everything you need. The main negative is I would avoid staying in the pool side / ground floor rooms. They are surrounded by residents and non residents (locals who come to socialise during the day) who are sunning themselves by the pool. We didn't feel our room... More

This was our fourth visit to 'The Glen' and our second stay this year. Our rooms have been 23 & 19, both superb, with every amenity you could wish for. What makes this hotel so good are the staff. Mark the owner is always around and makes himself known to every guest, greeting them every morning. Phil, the General Manager,... More

The Glen Boutique is a great little hotel in a really good part of town, and is a good place for a summer vacation. We stayed here as a couple and stayed for 5 days. The hotel is very gay friendly, and you can sense this from the minute you walk in. This hotel is certainly not for older couples,... More

We visited CPT in April 2014 and stayed at The Glen. When we decided to visit again for Xmas and New Year all the rooms were fully booked!! :-( We knew we could use the hotel facilities as day guest and we did just this. As we walked in, everything seemed familiar. The smell, the views, the friendly staff and... More
