“Absolutely Wonderful!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We stayed at Glen Boutique Hotel for 4 nights in June. Our stay was totally faultless! The service was spectacular. The staff are well trained and always keen to assist with anything- from providing a helpful list of good wine farms to visit or making a selection of cocktails not on their menu, every effort was made to ensure our stay was perfect.

The hotel amenities are great- a beautiful horizon pool. We used the steam room as the weather was not pool permitting.

Our room was magnificent and had everything we needed- espresso machine, mini bar, big tv etc.
The room was spacious and very clean.

The breakfast buffet offered a wide selection of delicious food.

We couldn't find fault with this hotel. We have recommended it to family and friends and will definitely return!

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this hotel. I stayed at The Glen for 5 days and wished I could have stayed for longer. Great location in Sea Point, close to the V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain and the dock for Robben Island, as well as the beach. Rooms are gorgeous and spacious, stocked with everything you might need. Staff go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and are happy to help you plan and book what you wish to do for the day, especially Siya who organised day trips for me when I arrived at the hotel at midnight! Zaheer's cooking is fabulous, JP, Abigail and many others were awesome. As a young female travelling alone, I have never felt as safe and comfortable as I did at The Glen. Thank you so much for an amazing time and I hope to visit all you lovely people soon!

We loved our stay at the Glen Boutique! A little oasis in a safe and fun neighborhood in Seapoint, Cape Town. We stayed here twice during our travels in SA.

The staff was very welcoming and friendly and gave us free tickets to the Mandela Memorial Service, which was very special.

The hotel and rooms are tastefully decorated. Our first room was very small and located on the downstairs floor; this was due to our late booking. Our second room was upstairs and much better with a view over the swimming pool.

The breakfast was very good and nicely presented.

The majority of guest are G/L.

Overall, a great stay. We would definitely go back!

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs are more spacious and have a view over the pool.

Love the hotel!!! Booked it initially when I arrived in Cape Town for two nights... And returned TWICE after during the same trip! Place is just absolutely wonderful, and the biggest charm of the hotel is the PEOPLE. You will be absolutely well taken care of, and the staff are always there and eager to help with whatever enquiries you have! They'll also help with the booking of accommodations elsewhere in Cape Town, giving great recommendation of what to do, which winery to visit etc... Absolutely love the service from Mark and his awesome team. Can't wait to be back!

A lovely hotel in a good location. Rooms were spacious and comfortable - my only grouse (and it's a small one) was the location of the light switches, which was challenging to say the least!!). The staff were hugely helpful - we only had one night and one day - they booked us onto the city bus trip, booked our restaurant for the night and the taxi that took us back and forth.Breakfast was delicious as was the lunch we had just before we left. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Capetown. My one word of caution would be don't believe the staff when they tell you the Waterfront complex is only 25 mins walk - it took us over an hour!! Perhaps they are joggers!

A home away from home! Visited Cape Town towards the end of May for a weekend and could not have ended my trip to South Africa on a better note than staying at the Glen Hotel. The whole experience from the first day I've arrived and upon departing will never be forgotten... Nothing was to much trouble for the staff and always offered a warm caring smile to every requests. Everything about my stay exceeded my expectations and beyond. Thanks to Mark, Phil and your wonderful team for an amazing experience and rest assured you will see me very soon again!

The service and culture of all that work at the Glen is consist - friendly, professional and nothing is too much trouble. My partner and I ended our South African trip in CT at the Glen where they even arranged a private guided tour of the best wine estates. We have stayed at many 4 star hotels worldwide but none thus far can compare to the glen. The breakfasts were great too. Thank you for a memorable holiday. Kevin
