We were absolutely impressed with everything this hotel had to offer, feeling more like a private resort than a hotel. Cannot speak highly enough of the staff who were extremely friendly, warm and attentive. We were particularly impressed when they upgraded our hire car when the original car we booked had not yet been returned. This was despite us turning... More

we stayed at the pool and restaurant for a day. we took a great lunch (slow service) which was good and it was nice to relax at the pool. although the public is mixed this place is popular with gay men.

I dont know where to begin. The staff is just great, so friendly and helpsome. What a crew! I could mention names, but would worry about forgetting someone, not wanting to leave anyone out. They all seamed to know exactly what to do, and was extreamly organised. The owner chatted with us daily, so down to earth friendly, heartfelt and... More

This is just a small reflection of CapeTown perfection; After a perfect flight from Amsterdam, we arrived at CPT airport. We couldn't miss the bright smile from our driver Faizel, who drove us to The Glenn and made us feel at ease straight away. What is better to arrive and feel truly welcomed by warm hearted people, who actual care?!... More

I am required to stay in hotels throughout the world for my job and I can't remember many (if any) being as good as this hotel. What really sets this hotel apart from others is it's service. They really go the extra mile. We were messing around changing our booking day to day due to my work arrangements and they... More

My husband and I stayed here on a short trip to Cape Town a couple years ago as a sort of delayed mini-honeymoon. We have been meaning to write a review ever since as we thought it unjust not to let others know how amazing this hotel is. It's very discreet from the street but inside it looks exactly like...

Very nice hotel with nice facilities. Good size of the room/bathroom, nice balcony over the pool. The music was a bit loud during the day but we actually enjoyed that. Amazing breakfast. Very helpful staff. The only thing I was less happy was the fact that they accept other people rather than the hotel guests to access the pool. Specially... More

My husband and I stayed here on our first ever visit to Cape Town. After traveling 30 hours we reached the hotel - which was wonderfully decorated and inviting. We were given a room over the pool - and trying to sleep during the day after our travels was a nightmare with the blaring music. We called down to reception... More
