“5 star accomodations and services”
Reviewed 13 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

It's been 18 months since my last stay and the standards and service are still excellent.
Coming in October meant there were whales in the bay which you can see from the front balcony. The spring flowers were in full bloom that just enhanced the views.

“Best place I stayed in, in the Cape Peninsula Area”
Reviewed 26 May 2012 for a stay in March 2011

I have stayed in Glenlin twice, in December 2009 and March 2011. . The accomodations are always clean and fresh. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms are clean and modern. The patio doors lead onto a sunny balcony with great views toward the mountains and beach.
It is a great location to explore the Cape. You are close to Simon's Town and the Penguin beach and there is even a shopping center 10 minutes away by car if you want to get 'your shop on'
