This was our third visit - it is an ideal place to stay at the start of a South African holiday. It is far enough out from the centre of Cape Town to avoid the hurly-burly of the city, yet close enough o visit all the attractions on offer. The gardens are a delight, the rooms are excellent, the food...

We cannot recommend this delightful residence highly enough. The staff are well trained and extremely helpful. It reminds me of how hotels used to be with freshly cooked breakfast served to your table and a good limited menu evening meal if you wish. It is in an excellent situation within a short distance to Constantia village and some great wineries...

Thanks so much for mentioning the distances, Constantia is often thought to be too far out, when in fact, it is more central to all Cape Town's tourist attractions. We look forward to your next visit. Wendy

We stayed here for our first night, and were made very welcome. Our room was very comfortable with all needs met. The gardens are delightful. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. We left some clothes behind and staff quickly let us know and kept them for our return. Only slight disappointment was lunch (which they don't really cater for) - cheese...

We spent 4 days here at the end of December and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left everything was superb. We had the family two bedroom cottage, which was so beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable, the website images do not show how great all the rooms are in my opinion. The two pools were a pleasure...

This lodge is rated #3 of "Bed and Breakfasts" in Constantia by Trip Advisor and I would not argue with that at all. My problem was that my travel agent recommended it as a "hotel" which it is not.( you have to order dinner in the morning,if you want it from a very restricted choice) and if you want anything...

My brother from London, who has stayed many nights at this hotel, recommended it to us for the couple of nights that we were in Cape Town. We loved the location convenient to all the wineries in Constantia, the delightful room with good air conditioning, and relaxing by the pool.

My two children and I stayed at Glen Avon for 6 nights over the Christmas 2016 / New Year 2017 period and had a wonderful time.
