                              The Hotel is stylefully decorated, and offer excellent value for money. The rooms are spacious and it is a stunning hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. These guys also make a very nice breakfast!

                              It is actually a guy hotel - I feel this should be clearly stated on any website.

                              The staff were friendly and go out of their way to help. The breakfast layout was "artistically" prepared and certainly impressed us! Good location with secure parking.

                              The hotel is going through a building extension phase and we unfortunately stayed in one of the older rooms which, although quite adequate, badly needs a facelift.

                              Service and style of hotel. And free internet of course.

                              Location is a bit far away from any activity, but in cape town you need a taxi anyway.

                              Liked it, but we were kind of surprised to find out it was a gay hotel. Hetero-friendly though, but Booked.net should have listed this when we were booking.

                              The Glen is a lovely place to stay in with very good facilities and friendly helpful staff. The breakfasts are very good and so is the day and evening menu - try it out you will not be disappointed.

                              - charming tasteful interior design - super friendly, helpful staff - stayed at one of the new rooms (nr 18): really spacious, overlooking the terrace and pools - mix of breakfast buffet and a la card breakfast

                              - spa facilities could do with a little make over: steam room didn't work at all, finish sauna didn't heat up to more than 55 degrees; - i'm 1,89 m tall - the bed was a bit short but still super comfortable

                              I'll try to be as objective as possible although someone from the hotel staff broke into my safe box and tampered with my personal belongings and the management handled the situation in the worst way possible. The hotel had a good location to have as a base in the city and staff members were extremely polite and smiling. They were very helpful. The room was pretty spacious and clean.

                              There is NO sea-view in anywhere in the hotel premises. That's a blatant lie, which has been very frustrating for me. There are many very tall buildings lined up next to each other blocking all the view of the sea. So all there's to see is a few inches of see between two ugly buildings. Sorry but that definitely doesn't qualify for a "view." After many back and forth emails to confirm that I'd have a sea view, I went to my room only to see nothing. The next day, someone from the hotel staff broke into my safe box and tampered with my personal belongings and the management handled the situation in the worst way possible. They didn't take any action for a couple of days although I asked them to so I ended up in the police station of Cape Town to report the issue. The police forced them to review the camera records and share with me if needed and handle the situation.

                              Great place, lovely rooms and main house. Great pool and nice sauna, steam room etc. Staff extremely helpful, greeted me by name every day and I really felt they went the extra mile to make our stay better that expected.

                              I missed a full sized mirror in the room and there is no gym.

                              - Amazing staff, the most hospitable from all 15+ hotels we have been in during our 1 month in Africa (including 5*) - Really beautiful, CLEAN and modern designed rooms with lots of space - Absolutely worth the price - Great pools and spa/relax area - Hotel is gay oriented, but you will love staying there even if you are not gay :-) (we are young straight couple)

                              We stayed in many places around the world, but the Glen Hotel is one of the best value for money we have ever experienced. The staff is very friendly and helpfull, the hotel is beautiful en well decorated, rooms are spacious and luxurious rooms. The breakfast is absolutely wonderful. We had a superb stay en will definitily recommend this hotel. It is a gay-orientated hotel, but it doesn't matter if you are not:-)
