This place exudes cool, but it's not "too cool" to make every guest feel like a VIP. From checkin to checkout, every member of the staff at the Glen went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We visited as part of our honeymoon, and they truly went the extra mile for us. We stayed in the expansive... More

I must say the pictures does not do it justice usually it is the other way around where the actual place falls short of the pictures. I put it... More

He was extremely helpful and fixed an itinerary and made reservations at different restaurants for every night we spent there. The staff are very friendly,the rooms very comfortable,breakfast...

Located in Sea Point, a short taxi or bike ride away from Camps Bay and the touristy V&A Waterfront. Shops and restaurants are available aplenty in Sea Point for convenience. The hotel staff provided a warm and friendly welcome. The room itself was large with a comfortable bed and good shower. The concierge, Phillip, Phil and Frederik, were very helpful... More

We stayed at Glen during our stay at Cape Town and found overall stay to be comfortable and pleasing. The b'fast had a good spread and being vegetarian they did arrange for nice veg options. The pool area, b'fast/restaurant decor and the bar were nicely done in boutique style. Plenty of parking space to park your vehicle too. Philip and... More

Friendly staff, a concierge who aims to please, close to all the necessary amenities and service that goes beyond the call of duty to ensure patron satisfaction. The rooms are clean, the air is fresh and despite the reasonably central location, the environmental impact in terms of external audible noise is minimal and pollution (air) appeared non-existent.

The airline lost my luggage on my first night and the hotel staff were so helpful.
