From the moment you step through the door of The Glen, you feel cared for. The standard of service here is exceptional! Mark leads a team of incredibly customer focused staff who are all so passionate about the service they offer! The room was comfortable and very well cleaned every day. The pool area was so inviting. The breakfast was fresh and offered an excellent variety. But the real game changer in this property is the experience. It feels like home and the staff go above and beyond to make you feel like this. We had a wonderful stay here and will no doubt, be returning again. In particular, we would like to mention CARSEY who attended to our every need and was exceptional the whole time.

We just spent two weeks at The Glen Boutique Hotel in Capetown. Quite simply we had the most perfect stay. Our room was spacious, contemporary and immaculately clean with luxurious bath robes and large walk in shower. Breakfast choice was sublime and could be enjoyed on the lovely terrace or inside in the beautifully decorated breakfast room. The pool vibe was relaxed with soft comfortable loungers and just a whisper of background music, with super attentive staff always on hand to attend to every need whether that was to create the perfect cocktail or to serve something from the extensive poolside menu (the salads were particularly good). The Glen is an Oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of Capeteown, beautifully designed and the decor in both the public areas and the bedrooms is both tasteful and exceptionally pleasing on the eye. All that said though, the main selling point of The Glen are the people. The friendly dynamic between all of the staff and the clientele creates a real home from home environment. Every need taken care of with warm and genuine exchanges at every turn. All credit to Mark, Takunda and Maggie who have created a highly trained and dedicated team that cannot do enough for their guests. We’ve already booked to go back in 2025!

Top location and excellent service. We loved the hospitality : very friendly, true | authentic and without exception. A place where you can be yourself. We prefer the small hotels where accommodation, hospitality, service and friendliness are of a very high standard and priority number one and you are really seen, looked after and appreciated. We have been in many places around the world and the Glenn Boutique Hotel we highly recommend to any one that is looking for a relaxed and friendly place to stay.

As a frequent traveller, I was very impressed with this wonderful little gem of a hotel. It is situated in the heart of Sea Point, an easy walk to the best beaches and restaurants. Super clean, my room was airy and modern, with a large balcony( deluxe) Breakfasts very good. I ate one meal at the restaurant in the evening which was very nice too. Best of all the staff is incredible, super friendly, attentive and welcoming. Alan the owner is very hands on runs an excellent hotel.

What a beautiful hotel. My favourite spot in Capetown. Amazing pool, beautiful rooms, fabulous food and the friendliest staff. This was our second stay here and we were made to feel so welcome by Mark and his staff. Its location is perfect, just a 5 minute walk to the seafront or a short Uber to The Waterfront area. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

This really is a fantastic boutique hotel. We enjoyed our stay at the beginning of our South African journey so much that we extended our trip to spend another 5 days here at the end. The hotel is just the right size and all the rooms and leisure areas are beautifully appointed. Having stayed in many, many hotels all over the world we can honestly say that the service and friendliness of the staff is second to none. The breakfast is excellent and there is also a lovely menu full of choice should you require lunch or dinner. So a big big thank you to Mark and his team for making us feel so welcome, relaxed and at home. Keep up the good work !
