Yet to check out but our 3 days here have been wonderful. List prices reasonable for those from the UK. Can't fault the service. Best we've had for ages. Breakfast is a must. The staff can't do enough to help, always kdon't care forto advise and they coordinate private tours. Very chatty employees and a great management team by all... More

First of all, the hotel is very nice, but the problem is the attitude from some of their guests. Me and my wife stayed at this hotel in January, after some days in Knysna and a Safari (in fact, a game). Before that, we stayed 05 nights in another Cape Town Hotel, where we had a great experience. After a... More

If your like me and read the negative reviews of a hotel first then stop reading this now as it's going to bore you senseless as its nothing but another great review of The Glen. Not sure where to start, so I suppose a bit of context for the review first. We traveled as a forty something married couple form... More

The Glen was fantastic. you walk in to the lobby and there are crystals hanging from the chandeliers which are beautiful. They take your bags up to the room for you. The room was nice and big, with a huge bathroom. They provide a Mac computer in your room to go on the internet with which was very lovely as... More

My friend and I stayed for 8 nights at The Glen during our trip to Cape Town and could not have chosen a better place. The rooms were spaceous and light, beds large and comfy with all amenities and more. Fantastic coffee, chocolates and mini-bar! The terrace, pools and jacuzzi are all top-notch. The food is also delicious. But it... More

While The Glen was visually stunning and centrally located to everything you could imagine both in and around Cape Town, the staff made the experience completely unforgettable. I've never seen such hard work and commitment to excellence at a hotel before or since. During my stay, I left some over-sized items I purchased during my visit to Cape Town at... More
