Great breakfasts and the one dinner we had was excellent as well. Highly recommend this place and would certainly... More

Service and general teamwork at Glen Avon is impeccable - definitely plan to return. Organised a taxi for us to go to Stormers match at Newlands which was very reasonable there and... More

Staying at Glen Avon Lodge was an excellent experience. The setting and accommodation is fantastic and the comfort is exceptional. Lauren is very helpful, organised and exceptionally professional. This is by far the best boutique hotel that I have stayed at in Cape Town. I shall return as many times as possible.

Wonderful standard of accommodation in excellent surroundings. A beautiful tranquil garden with lovely pool area. Rooms are excellently furnished. Staff are very helpful and whether you only have breakfast or decide to dine in the evening you will not be disappointed. This is our third stay and not our last.

Excellent time at Glen Avon with all the staff being very helpful and courtesy. Accommodation was top standard. Meals were varied and of a very good standard. All in all great to be back in SA for another holiday.
