You know the feeling. A light summer breeze, a sprinkle of magic. The feeling you get when things just work out. Like they already "knew", anticipated your need, almost before you became aware of it yourself. Then they meet you smiling, excited to be the ones who can address them. Professional, knowledgeable, subtle, solution-oriented, discreet, smiling, and friendly. The Glen really is an oasis of warm, comforting hospitality. Thanks to the entire team for a great stay!

This place is truely unique, they have the most amazing team and you feel like you are in an oasis while being in the middle of Sea Point, a very central and vibey suburb of Cape Town. The Glen Boutique Hotel is our favourite place for holiday stays as well as day-visits by the pool or to use their Spa facilitues. It is the perfect location to unwind and enjoy an extremely high quality service, whether you travel as a couple, business traveller or with a family. The most outstanding points for us is the friendliness of their staff (extremely child-friendly & willing to go above and beyond to exceed guest expectations), their excellent breakfast service and the luxurious pool deck incl. a heated jacuzzi. We have visited the Glen Boutique Hotel over 10 times in the past 5 years and will be back very soon. :-)

Stayed here for 4 nights in December. The location and hotel facilities were great. The breakfast was also good. Rooms were well spaced out and equipped with everything. Pool area was well spaced out. The majority staff were poor with few exceptions. When asked to assist with something they had no clue how to help. The ranges from installing DSTV to taking down a breakfast order.

Dear Haarby , The Glen Team and I have read your 49 reviews with interest to understand your review history and the clear pattern you display to service professionals if problems occur ( such as happened with the DSTV from severe winds disloging the roof loacted receiver dish ) . We are sorry that we let you down on thi occasion but having investigated the matter of your DSTV I am satisfied we did all we could including a complimentary dinner .voucher . We are all (as you can imagine) devastaed by your review and your description of the Glen team as "Pathetic". It is hurtful and demoralsiing to all of the Team . We are sorry you found the entire team poor and unhelpful especially given you only meet a small number of team that went out of their way to offer you an alternative room . 2 members of our maintenance team carried your luggae by hand to Fresnaye ( 1 kilometere away ) The DSTV was repaired within 1 hour by an external engineer and we apologised for this storm damage . We were sorry and disappointed that the DSTV dish servicing your original room was displaced by the storm damage and that impacted your check in and ability to watch the Liverpool Tottenham Match on your arrival . Takunda immedately upgraded you to Suite 2 with no additional charge ( usually R10,990 per night in December ) and the team arranged the DSTV engineer to come and rectify the Room 7 DSTV (Your R1200 per night room rate was discounted heavily for the standard room you booked) . Regarding the breakfast service comments as readers of your review and the Glen's reviews will observe such feedback is out of context with our breakfast service standards . We apologise if you did not recieve the service standards you were seeking from our dedicated breakfast team . You are entitled your observation and comments on our team and service , we only hope that our other past and future guests see your review in the context of the history of (your reviews ) and our our sevice reputation , we tried hard to meet your demands throughout you stay and regret we failed on service and refute that our staff had " no clue " . We ( The Glen Team ) hold our heads unbowed by your description of " pathetic " staff . We are commited to staff training and development as well as fair and just feedback from all our stakeholders as well as supporting all of guests reasonable requests. Safe travels and we sincerley hope you find estabishments for future stays that will accept your behavious and demands . Mark & The Glen Team

Did a one night staycation here when things were still quite locked down during the pandemic. The room was stunning and luxurious with a beautiful private balcony. We loved spending time in the room. Dining by the pool was relaxing and safe (considering the need for social distancing). Food was excellent. I cant wait to do another staycation here.
