The service was exemplary, room & bathroom comfortable and cosy and the Tv was stuck on one channel. I was not able to connect with the Wifi despite help from a staff member. The good ambience, service and friendliness of the two male staff were overshadowed by a rude, obnoxious, inefficient , ill mannered manager on duty. I travel frequently... More

I stayed at GlenAvon with my mother and it was exactly what we had hoped for. The rooms were spacious and beautifully appointed with ours leading onto a little terrace overlooking the gardens and the pool. On the hotel's recommendation we wandered down to Peddlers and had a light tapas lunch which was great after a long flight. Dining at... More

Wonderful B&B/hotel. Extremely comfortable rooms, great beds, all amenities etc. Very helpful, friendly staff. Excellent breakfasts. Location is ideal in heart of Constantia - close to M3 with easy access to coast and city - close to Constantia vineyards, restaurants, cafes and outdoor mall. A car is essential unless you want to take taxis everywhere. Nice looking pool. The addition... More

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

I definitely recommend the Glen Avon Lodge. Not only is it beautiful with the surrounding mountains, green gardens and roses, but also provides relief in the event of the electricity going off. The main house has battery generated power so breakfasts and dinners are never delayed. The three course meal was absolutely scrumptious. Staff - wow! Well done Glen Avon... 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 been to South Africa 4 times in 4 years and would have stayed at more than 25 hotels around the Western Cape. 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
