When Robert Louis Stevenson said "To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive", he quite clearly wasn't on his way to Glen Avon Lodge. We have just returned from two superb weeks at The Lodge, although it was our third trip to The Cape we have only just discovered this wonderful place. From the minute we arrived to the moment we had to leave for the airport we were looked after superbly by all who work there including Tjaart, Wendy, Maike& Larny. The rooms are very clean and spacious and the bathrooms fitted out superbly, there is also a discreet kitchen area with fridge and microwave. There is a real family feel to the whole experience and nothing is too much trouble for them to organise for you. It's only 15 minutes drive from the centre of the city and is ideally located for getting around the entire region.
The day starts with breakfast on the terrace overlooking the garden, their fresh fruit "kebabs" with yoghurt are the first item to greet you, followed by everything else you would expect. We also stayed in on a couple of evenings and enjoyed superb food and wine with service to match.
Glen Avon Lodge is very good value for money and will be top of our agenda when we return to The Cape.
