Excellent room with unexpected extras (capsule coffee machine, apple computer) and a large bathroom. The service was great, always helpful and we felt like they cared a lot about us. Amazing breakfast buffet with a variety of hot breakfasts you could choose from. A 5 minutes walk away from the SeaPoint promenade and a 6-7 minutes drive to the waterfront.... More

The hotel is well decorated, clean, comfortable, and has great service. The location is a quick taxi ride from the V&A waterfront and an easy drive to camps bay, and table mountain. Additionally, an incredible breakfast is included in the affordable hotel rate. The hotel lobby and two bars were a great place to read by the roaring fireplaces and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights after getting married in Cape Town. On hearing we had just got married the manager upgraded our room to the Penthouse. The penthouse suite was amazing, and in general the staff were friendly and helpful, and the overall service was wonderful. Everything exceeded expectations really.

Unbelievable value and a high level of service. This is one of the hidden gems of Cape Town accommodation. I would highly recommend The Glen to anyone who intends visiting Cape Town...and it is so central too (5kms to The Waterfront.)

Gorgeous room. Great location. And the people were so friendly, helpful, and amazing. That really made the difference for me. If I return to Capetown (which I hope to as it was a beautiful city), I will definitely be staying here again.

The glen offers a luxury feeling for a comfortable price. The staff are extremely helpful and courteous and the facilities extensive. Spa and pool facilities (and the entire grounds) are kept impeccably clean. The Glen itself, while close to the promenade waterfront is a very cheap cab ride away from the downtown area, though catching an uber was never and... More
