The lodge is in a beautiful residential area close to Cape Town and Hout Bay. It's a rather big premise so there's enough space for all guests to relax in the gardens, lounge, terrace etc. It provides privacy and a personal and friendly service. Food was great, too. Recommendable for those travelling with a car and exploring the city and... More

Only one remark, when you think of renovating the bath rooms you may want to think about moving the shower tabs. Place them in a possession that you can get the water temp right with out getting wet. Thank you for your hospitality

What a pleasant stay. Glen Avon is a well equipped lodge with friendly staff. We arrived rather late at night but were welcomed with broad smiles and assisted to the large, well equipped rooms. A great breakfast is served in the 220 year old main building. All in all a great experience worth recommending.

A wonderful place to base your Cape experience. The accommodation is spacious, clean and comfortable and the food is excellent. A car would be useful but the receptionist arranged a wonderful driver/guide for us. We stayed 3 nights but needed more time to see everything so we will return.

Thank you for your review. The next time you are in Cape Town, we are able to assist with car hire, and of course directions, although its always nice to learn about the Country and ones surroundings, with a driver or tour guide. There's always more to see and do, on each visit into Cape Town, our beautiful wonderful city!... More

Glen Avon is a family run boutique hotel with old fashioned standards of personal service and caring about guests. Set in beautiful grounds with lovely architecture, one of the joys of the stay was breakfast (fresh fruit and eggs to order) on the verandah overlooking the gardens. Another was dozing off on comfortable loungers under trees and next to the... More

The accommodation is nice, nothing spectacular. There was construction ongoing of which we were not informed in advance. This meant noise and dust and the pool was closed as a result. The staff were not overly helpful.
