Simply the best. I spend about 150 night as year in hotels traveling globally for work. Each of the three times I have stayed at this property I have been blown away by every aspect of the property, foodservice, facilities, spa, and especially the hospitality provided by the staff. If you are visiting Cape Town your biggest mistake would be...

Having travelled fairly extensively, I can honestly say that the Glen is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. If you assume that most top hotels won't fail to deliver on facilities, then the thing that then becomes the differentiator is customer service. From the Manager down to the cleaning staff, everyone here takes personal responsibility for...

In a world where the term 'luxury boutique' has become almost an oxymoron, the Glen stands out as the benchmark all other hotels need to aspire to. The management were exceptionally kind and helpful, taking it on themselves to find alternative accomodation when we turned up 1 day too early. Once we were actually staying at the Glen the experience...

We stayed 6 nights at The Glen so we had the opportunity to meet most of the staff and take advantage of a number of services. The culture at The Glen to provide the best stay possible was demonstrated day after day, that is no small feat. Hats off to Mark (owner), Derrick and Joe (team directors) for hiring, nurturing...

Having travelled South Africa for over 2 weeks whilst staying in hostels along the way, arriving at 'the glen' was like a dream !! My room was amazing (absolutely huge) you couldn't fault anything with it, the interior, upholstery bathroom all top notch. The staff cannot do enough for you, and like other people have said, the breakfast choices are...

What a fantastic hotel. Amazing service from the start including sparkling wine on check in. Thank you Derrick & Jason for such a lovely welcome and their exceptional customer service. We had an awesome room in the old house. I'm sure the newer rooms are lovely too. Ours felt so homely and was very spacious - probably one of the...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our South Africa trip and we didn't enjoy this hotel as much as we hoped from the reviews. There were many positives - it was the best breakfast range of anywhere we stayed, the communal areas were beautifully appointed with lots of fresh flowers, it was a great pool deck,...
