Cape Town over Xmas and New yr, is generally v expensive, and accomodation can be hard to find. As my normal haunts were full, tried this. Got a reduced single rate, of $150 a night .. not the cheapest, but, its a 5 star place, with gorgeous views of mountains. Its in Constantia, 15 mins from CT centre or airport,... More

Quiet cul-de-sac in close proximity to some wonderful wine estates. Clean, well appointed room with spacious bathroom. Great mattress! Appreciated the block out curtains. TV could be upgraded! Attentive, knowledgeable staff. A most pleasant lodge. We will definitely return.

A superb base for short or long stays. Attentive staff, spacious suite with a high level of facilities. Balcony and garden with swimming pool. Very substantial meals with cordon bleu presentation and content. Close to Constantia Village and Mall and of course Cape Town itself. A quite haven after travelling which would be difficult to improve.

The lodge is on the other side of Table Mountain, so it's away from the hussle and bussle of Cape Town, quite close to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Whilst the facilties were good (outdoors and in), I felt that perhaps we were a bit young to be staying there. It had a feel that it was geared towards an older clientele.... More

This is a little oasis in Constantia close to Cape Town. This is our 2nd visit and the service, food and beautiful rooms not to mention the swimming pool and gardens are wonderful. The warmth of the initial greeting continues with every staff member and you are made to feel special. Cannot wait to return

Another memorable stay at Glen Avon ..great location (and away from the manic traffic), it is accessible to the best parts of Cape Town. The accommodation is excellent, the gardens stunning, food really really good, the hospitality, service and attention to the smallest detail is second to none ..have already booked another stay !

This was a lovely place to start our trip to South Africa. We were warmly welcomed and our room was beautiful, overlooking the gardens and the pool. The pool was refreshing but I enjoyed my swims. Very good for visiting the Kirstenbosch gardens and Cape Point as well as the Constantia vineyards. Also, plenty of good places to eat nearby.

Staff very friendly. Gardens lovely, and well placed to visit the Kirstenbosch gardens. Ibis in the garden each day ! Pool was inviting, but we... More

We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting Cape Town. Despite Constantia being slightly out of town we definitely think we made the right choice as it was nice to stay out of the busy town centre. The Lodge was beautifully presented with a lovely garden. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Everything was clean and in good condition. The... More
