At last, after many visits to Cape Town area, we have found the perfect place to stay. We received a wonderful welcome and were shown to the most elegant suite, which opened up to the pool, and looked across the lawn and beautiful rose garden. The bed was comfortable, the room large and the bathroom was spacious with a roomy shower, bath, twin wash basins and luxury toiletries. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and the staff were all very well trained, motivated, friendly and helpful. The bedrooms are in a Modern house and garden rooms and the old house which was built by slaves is used for the public areas, thus providing the best of both worlds.
We had dinner here on the first night, which was excellent, but the guest house is located close to so many superb restaurants, many of which are rated in the top 100 in South Africa, that you are not restricted to the guest house to eat. There is also a very popular up market bar/restaurant within easy walking distance.
There are some of the best vineyards in the country all within a short drive, plus Cape Town is easy to drive to either via the motorway or the scenic drive along the coast, making Glen Avon an ideal base visiting for Cape Town and the surrounding areas and attractions. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family. You can stay somewhere cheaper but this really is a case of getting what you pay for. You will not be disappointed and I would say that the actuality is better than the web site.
