Had a fantastic 3 night stay at The Glen Boutique Hotel. Room was large, modern and clean. The staff were extremely helpful, the pool area is excellent, and the breakfast is brilliant. Would highly recommend.

Couldn't be better. Well run with excellent staff who were attentive and friendly. Rooms are very clean with the public rooms designed and decorated to the highest standard. The attractive pool area was well equipped with high quality furniture. We loved our stay there and will certainly return. Thank you all. x

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony. All rooms are quiet.

We moved here from another hotel out on the quiet outskirts of cape town and didn't get off to the best start, although absolutely beautiful the hotel is at present opposite a slightly noisy building site... I say this not to put you off as once inside the rooms you would not know and the beautiful pool area is not spoilt by a little background noise, which does not start too early and is usually finished by mid afternoon. But it is the amazing staff that make this place really special, going over and above at every oppertunity and always with a cheerful smile. Philip at front desk could not have been more welcoming or accommodating and after I fell Ill Abigail quickly and happily moved all obsticles to make us a comfortable as possible. Even to the point where whilst we were slightly lost wandering a local street one of the staff who was off duty recognised us and pulled over in his car to show us the way back. The amenities are of a high standard, our room was spacious and very beautifully presented, the pool area is well kept and relaxed with a bar offering table service from your loungers and a restaurant menu for lunch by the pool. The breakfast offered with the rooms is a very generous continental buffet with additional cooked options offered at good rates. Overall a very positive stay.

The personalized service at the Glen is truly exceptional. The management is fantastic and the team go out of their way to ensure a safe, friendly and fun experience in Cape Town. The location is great and whilst not directly on the beach, the facility is in a location close to all of what CapeTown has to offer. The hotel decor is lovely and the location is vibrant, secluded and private.

The hotel also has a private car rental service which was great. Once again great hotel and a team that really care! Thanks guys on a pleasant stay. Daniel B.

My girlfriend and & I spent 6 nights in The Glen this January, one of the best boutique hotels we have stayed at, the staff are incredibly helpful, friendly and accommodating ... first impressions count, and the warm and genuine welcome you receive at The Glen is second the none. The food is delicious, particularly the breakfast, a highlight. We'll be back and have recommended this hotel to so many of our friends since we returned home .... what a gem!

So, I really wanted to like The Glen based on the reviews I read.

My friend and I stayed here in January. Couple of things - my friend found a used band-aid (GROSS) in her shower, complained and The Glen didn't seem to think it was a big deal. She dropped off her laundry, and they lost a pair of shorts for a couple of days. Again when we complained, it was treated as not a big deal and no one could tell us where the shorts were for at least a few hours.

My AC unit in my room was really finicky. It kept turning off every couple of hours. Other than that, I didn't have complaints about my room.

Breakfast was good at The Glen - fresh fruits, yogurts, juices and then a hot menu made to order. I wish I could say the same about dinner. First of all, dinner service is SUPER slow. My friend and I ordered a mezze platter - which took 45 minutes to prepare. We then wanted to order delivery, and the front desk person told us it would take too long and he recommended ordering from the menu. Our entrees (an omlet and fish) took over an hour to prepare. And unfortunately, weren't very good. So I would highly recommend not eating dinner here.

I wish we would have stayed somewhere that was walking vicinity to restaurants/bars, had better service and truly cared if we were satisfied.
