4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

We stayed at this 5 star lodge for 3 days. Its location and setting is excellent with easy connections to Cape Town and Constantia. Although our room was comfortable, we found it somewhat dated. This also applies to the bath and shower facilities. There is no detachable shower. We noticed that this accommodation has quite a few returning British guests,... More

Just spent 4 days at this wonderful guest house. A very warm welcome from Livinston who was so charming. He then continued to look after our every need during our 4 days, with a very calm and professional attitude. It was clear to see he was passionate about his work. Our room was spacious and airy with a very comfy... More

If you are after a small boutique personal place to stay, then this is the one. The room was great, overlooking the pool, had everything we needed (apart from an iron and board) although we were offered for someone to do it for us. The staff were all really friendly, and the breakfasts are great, fresh fruit platter to start,... More

We had an enjoyable stay at Glen Avon Lodge during the Test match. It was a peaceful retreat from the bustle of Cape Town and Newlands. We'd like to mention Beauty, Linton and Livison for their friendly service.

Glen Avon Lodge is now a Boutique Hotel of the finest and most personalized service in the fairest Cape and especially in Constant is. I have been staying at Glen Avon many many times over the years and have seen the transformation from an 6 Bedroom Lodge to a superb Boutique Hotel. Well done. Keep up the good work.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Glen Avon Lodge. A gorgeous setting in the heart of Constantia combined with incredibly attentive, friendly staff make this hotel 5/5. The rooms were so comfortable with a very chic touch....the kind of 'homey' hotel rooms that you can stay in indefinitely! A special mention to Levinson for his great personality and... More

We recently stayed for 5 nights at the Glen Avon. It was a superb base to explore the city, wine lands and peninsula from. The food is superb, the staff excellent and very helpful in helping guide us in making the most of our time there. The rooms are very well appointed and the pool and gardens a pleasure to... More
