My wife and I recently stayed at the Glen for 9 days after our African Safari. The place is amazing, the staff, Juliana, Derrick, Jo, Jayson & Fauzel & all the others were fantastic. Nothing was a problem, even when I under booked our stay by one night, they upgraded us on the last night at the same rate as... More

Wonderful, wonderful place! Tucked in on the side of Signal hill, two lions and lush green plants meet the traveller. Parking is tight, but nothing is a problem. The welcome is warm, and before you know it you are in your beautiful room. Attention to detail, great little spa, and friendly, attentive staff. Stunning breakfast, lunch and dinner abailable -...

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in this gorgeous little boutique hotel. The staff were always ready to welcome us with a smile. Within a few days, they knew our names, what we preferred for breakfast and we started feeling more like we were staying with friends rather than in a hotel. Highly recommended.

Fantastic experience from being picked up from the airport to being dropped back off again. We were made to feel very special throughout our stay. The breakfasts were splendid with a huge range from fresh fruit through to a full cooked breakfast and at no additional cost. We were expecting to get an additional bill at any point as it... More

We stayed at a deluxe double room. The room was amazing with a nice balcony overlooking the pool area. The staff were incredibly friendly. It was a short walk down to the sea promenade. Everything was very good.

Great people, very service-oriented mindset, lovely food, beautiful rooms and great spa facilities. We'd very much enjoyed our stay at the Glen Boutique. We'd had some problems with the temperature of our shower but they really helped us out and gave us a warm welcome. Recommend it to everyone!

We had originally booked to stay at a well know hotel brand, but saw this gem on trip advisor at a very reasonable price so booked it. On arriving at the airport, a helpful driver was there to greet us, full of knowledge and very kind. Check-in was a relaxed affair and we realised straight away that we had made... More

We really enjoyed our five nights at The Glen as the conclusion to our South African honeymoon. The room we got was amazing, the hotel itself is fresh and modern. Always clean and nice.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The location is very good too - under 10 minute walk to the promenade. The breakfast was excellent. The room was a little cramped though.
