“Absolutely breathtaking & peaceful”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We enjoyed our stay! The staff were amazing & made us feel comfortable & went the extra mile for us. From the time we entered till the time we left everything was peaceful, welcoming and out of this world. The experience was breathtaking and beyond our expectations, there food was exquisite.

The Glen boutique hotel is centrally located in a residential area in the Atlantic Seaboard (Sea Point). The hotel consists of a lovely, big, old house that was converted into the initial accommodation, and a large new annex all linked by wooden decks and the pool area. The hotel is within walking distance from shops, the promenade (for leisurely walks/ runs next to the ocean) and to the city centre (short taxi ride).

The superior standard room I stayed in was spacious, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The linen and towels were of good quality and there was a large selection of television channels alongside a dvd player for those wanting to relax inside. The only possible drawback is the noise level in the smaller building next to the pool where my room was located. The whole building has cement/ crete floors which is lovely, but unfortunately intensifies the sound of other guests coming and going. Fortunately there were no noisy, inconsiderate guests during my stay.

The pool area is lovely with fresh towels on all the stretchers alongside the pool. I spent most my time here enjoying drinks from the bar. The staff were professional, helpful and efficient throughout my short stay.

This hotel offers great value for money - especially if you stay at lower rates during off peak season. It is a very good contender in its league.

The one consistent item with the glen is the magnificent service from the staff. These guys make you feel like royalty! They always have a smile on their faces and handle any kind of niggle or qiestion with enthusiastic professionalism. This place is good value for money. For completeness the small downsides were the noise in the passage kept is awake the one evening due to people using the public toilets. The other being a couple of tlc itema in our room that should have been sorted out like signs of damp with paint cracking in the corner. Look past that though as this place is a gem that I heartily recommend

The reception in the Glen was the best part of our 3-day stay. Phil and his crew are amazing people, that made us feel very comfortable and treated us very well.

They also tried to help us to book a safari and other stuff.

If you want to stay in Sea Point, it's a good value to your money.

We came to Cape Town for a short 48 hrs stay. The Glen proved to be an excelent choice.
Absolutly super friendly and eager to please staff. The room was comfortable and spacious the bathroom huge and modern.
Breakfast was delicious and beautifully served. Free WiFi and secure parking is an advantage. Driving and avigating in and out of the neighbourhood (Sea point) was a breez.
Philip (front desk mngr) couldnt have been more helpfull and friendly.
All in all a woderful experiance. Will deff. Recomend to our friends.

We stayed here with a family with two teenagers and had a very good time. Rooms are good (modern), clean with good large shower (no bath). Very nicely decorated. We arrived late but welcome was friendly and efficient. Nice staff and excellent breakfast.
