Just about everything was great - from the upgrade to a more deluxe room (it was winter and therefore not fully booked) to the delicious breakfast (quite a spread!) to the kind and helpful staff. I ate dinner in the restaurant all three evenings, taking advantage of the set meal with pairings ($32 CAD, $24USD) - everything was delicious! I... More

This hotel was absolutely gorgeous. The staff was so accommodating and the free breakfast was delicious. The pool was gorgeous, and the food was fantastic. I will definitely return. One of the perks was the nepresso machine in the room

My partner and I spent 6 nights at Glen Boutique. The hotel building was quite small and intimate, but the space was well used. The rooms were clean but small, the bed was a due for replacement. The owner, Mark, was a genuinely nice guy, nothing was too much trouble. Pros: 1) This hotel is very good value. We went... More

Two thumbs up from me. This was my second time in Cape Town, but the first time at this hotel. My room was a great size, with ultra modern furnishings, and a separate toilet and shower which I prefer. A friend and I both ate breakfast and dinner here - both were amazing with plenty of choice.

The room was a standard room. We thought it was a bit small. Also, some instructions on the air conditioner workings would have helped. The location is in Sea point - about 10 mins walk from the sea. Could just about get a glimpse of the sea from my window. It is about 10 minute car ride from V&A water... More

EVERYONE was friendly and welcoming. Our room was very tidy and CLEAN! There is free WiFi (good reception). Service was top notch. They also have a great selection of BMWs and Range Rovers for rental. These cars are brand new models and the rental process was extremely easy and convenient.
