Nice location and I really did enjoy my stay, I will definitely come back, If the owner can check on the cleaning services, because I found dust all over the place and the couch blanket wasn't really clean, But anyway the place was nice.

Cosy comfortable room. Very friendly and helpful host. We just needed to spend a night as we attended a wedding. The host was kind enough to inform us about the load shedding times so we were prepared.

It was a good time in New Lands - Cape Town. I have a habit of staying at Glenhaven Cottages. And I intend to go back in a couple of years. The breakfast is very tasty made by Mustafah. The manager Dan is very attentive and kind.

Excellent location. Depending on which room you are allocated the street noise is problematic for noise sensitive guests. While the rooms are well equipped in terms of the kitchenette and bathroom rooms were a little 'shabby'. The room could do with a little face-lift. Towels are old, bathroom was not clean on arrival. Coffee and milk not replenished in the morning.

Loved our stay. Rooms were always clean and well equipped with everything you might need for your stay. Loved everything about this place. From the breakfast served to the tidy cute rooms. Superb for the price. Would highly recommend. We also had no problem with parking since they have an area enclosed with a gate. Would definitely choose this accomodation again if I had to ever go back on holiday to cape town

We loved everything about this accommodation. Large and airy room, great atmosphere for breakfast, friendly and attentive staff, location, Wi-Fi, parking and access to the room. We miss the people who served us during the 14 days we spent there, as well as of beautiful and vibrant Cape Town. We'll be back someday.

Lovely and welcoming stay, however the room was a little bit run down. On the other hand the service provided was extremely friendly and professional. Sue, the owner of the property helped us to organise all the trips in prior to our arrival. Her husband made an excellent coffee and Mustafa's breakfast were to die for.
