This is long overdue as we stayed at Glen Avon over Christmas. We were a family of four including two teenage kids and I was a bit worried that they would feel it is a bit old for them as the clientele is a little older. But they, like us, loved the tranquility, the comfortable rooms, pretty gardens and pool... More

We had a very nice time at the Glen Avon lodge. The room large, fine and clean, a large bathroom with shouwer and bath. Great breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff. A good place to start the day and visit all the highlights of Cape Town. Close to the wineries of Constantia.

We have a habit of trying ones for a couple of days and then moving on to try the next place. We have stayed all around Green Point, Sea Point, De Waterkant and this time thought... More

Our stay in Glen Avon Lodge could not have been more comfortable. The staff were superb ,helpful,polite and always cheerful. The rooms were well designed and provided good IT and television once the staff had adjusted the reception.

Great accommodation and excellent food and service. Just two points to help the elderly! To provide a non slip bath mat and similar for the shower floor which can be lethal! Most impressed with the level of service. Nothing too much trouble
