We were at the Glen Hotel in June 2014 ! Whole the Staff is lovely, the place is clean, the food is really tasty... We enjoyed a lot to spend time around the swimming pool. It was our favourite place in Cape Town for rest ! Thank you

The staff at this hotel went above and beyond to make my solo trip enjoyable. The breakfast provided each morning was fresh and delicious (both hot and cold). The dinner options weren't as varied and some days they lacked a vegetarian option, but I was often able to have the chef prepare something that I could eat that wasn't on... More

It's really a home away from home... the people at Glen make you very special. A pretty boutique hotel dressed in white, it's a beautiful place to stay and we had a wonderful time. The breakfast is lovely... lunch and dinner options could be better. For future guests... do ask for rooms in the main building or the New building.... More

If you are looking for a prime spot to base your Cape Town city explorer holiday, then I would recommend The Glen. Having 2 MyCiTi bus stops within walking distance makes seeing the city and getting to fantastic night spots, that much easier. We started our stay in room 22, in what looked like a newer or renovated building. The... More

The Glen Boutique Hotel exceeded our expectations. It was beautifully maintained, the staff were wonderful and attentive and the breakfast was fabulous. We spent over two weeks at this hotel and enjoyed every minute of it. It was also in a good spot with some really nice local restaurants only about a five minute walk away.

The fact I am staying @ The Glen for the 6th time (not counting the times in between that I made use of the great restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner or of the bar at the pool) means I must like it a lot. Never found a hotel with the quality and friendlyness anywhere (and I have been in... More

I needed a place to stay for the night and found the Glen and decided to give it a try. I arrived late the evening due to my late flight into Cape Town. This was no problem, they accompanied me to park my car, and then took my luggage to my room. I forget the name of the person who... More

Dear Eugene S Thank you very much for the wonderful feedback and for highlighting the creaking floorboards.All rooms on the old building top floor are carpeted therefore the noise must have been from the corridor which has since been fixed. We hope to see you back at the Glen soon. Kindest Regards Perina More
