The Glen Boutique Hotel is gorgeous! The rooms and property are nicely decorated (clean, modern), the staff is really friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was great! The only downside is that this hotel is located in Sea Point so it's a bit of a trek to the waterfront and downtown area. We didn't find this to be much of... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Glen in July 2014 and were very pleased by the hotel and particularly the friendly staff. We stayed in a standard room, which was understandly a bit small, but still very good value for money. The breakfast can be particularly recommended. The hotel is very near a few stops of the MiCiti bus service,... More

We arrived in Cape Town on the first Saturday in July. Picked up promptly at the airport by a driver hired by The Glen. The staff were great. Attentive to every request. The Penthouse was worth every penny. The food, lunch and dinner primarily, was great. The Glen has a trendy style about it. Absolutely my #1 place to stay... More

The Glen is amazing. The location is great (Sea Point, a little removed from the central business district); the rooms are stylish and comfortable; the breakfasts are delicious; the price is great; and, the staff and services are unparalleled. Phillip Botha, the concierge, deserves special mention, as he is the best concierge I have ever encountered. Phillip planned our activities... More
