What a fabulous place to stay! The Glen accommodated us for 5nights on our first stay in Cape Town and we felt extremely pleased with our choice! Thank you to everyone, especially Derrick and Frederic, for helping us to maximise the short time we had in this beautiful city. The location of the hotel is excellent as is the value... More

This hotel was amazing! I was so surprised what lay behind the white gates along the street; definitely a hidden gem to say the least. Unfortunately, we were only able to stay at The Glen for One night and I wish it was for our whole trip to Cape Town. The pool area was the best I've ever seen at... More

Front desk staff arranged our airport transfers , taxis to dinners, and a wine/ surfing tour. Pool area is very nice but weather did not allow us to make use of the pool. Bit of a mix up with...

My daughter and I spent twelve days at the hotel and the entire experience was amazing. The service we received at this hotel equals that we have received at five star hotels and resorts around the world. Mark, the owner, was very personable and available to assist in anyway he could.

We stayed in the attic room and it was beautiful. Comfortable and luxurious beds and bedding, coffee machine, balcony and plenty of room. The local is excellent, only a few minutes walk to the promenade. Plenty of eating places in the area, although we chose to eat in the hotel one night and had a delicious meal there. The breakfast...

This hotel scores a 10 out of 10 for everything. The staff were friendly, professional, attentive, genuine and no request was too much for them.

This hotel is really terrific - prime location, excellent service, outstanding breakfast - continuous pampering. We were there in wintertime so unfortunately too cold to stay outside but it has great outdoor pools as well. Very delicately designed in every part and touch - loved it.
