We stayed for 4 nights in April 2017, Sue the Host was friendly and helpful, recommending places to visit in Cape Town. Our room was large and had a private courtyard which was a nice touch. It had full kitchen facilities, a decent shower, bath, large comfortable bed, AC and a fan. There was free wi-fi and a good selection...

Wonderful stay at Glenhaven! The rooms are especially lovely, they're very spacious, with lots of natural light. It's also close to shopping centres, lots of restaurants, and public transport for those who don't drive, making it a really convenient.

Excellent BnB with the classic family style breakfast and boarding accommodations. Spacious room with a full kitchen and a large bathroom. Reasonably priced. A quiet location close to a big mall and several good restaurants. Very friendly and helpful host.

It is located in quiet and safe residential area and only a few minutes walk to the main roads where the shops, restaurants, supermarkets and shopping malls are located. The train (metro) station and bus stop are about 5 minutes from this guest house. Trains and buses are frequent and incredibly cheap and fast to Cape Town.

I had a very nice stay at Glenhaven, very charming home; it feels like Home, being in her house. Sue is very sweet, patient and helpful. Mustapha and his colleagues do a great job! The dogs are cuddly and charming. I will go a 3rd time. Breakfast excellent.

Glenhaven is for sure a good place for a stay over if you have a function at Kirstenbosch. It's well managed and everything you need is available in the room. We've enjoyed the breakfast and the option for breakfast is really good.

This was a really good find. Lovely spacious accommodation, and a little outside private courtyard as well. Had absolutely everything we needed. Our hostess and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were delicious and freshly cooked. The pool looked lovely as well just sorry we didn't have time to use it. Secure parking. And a really large, comfortable...

Just returned from a 12 night stay at this wonderful place. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel really welcome and Sue and her staff were really friendly, even the dogs made us welcome!! The Swiss cottage room was quality and perfect for us with daily fresh towels and we always returned to it left beautifully clean...

I really enjoyed my stay at Glenhaven. I liked the room I was allocated and it had a full kitchen facility. Comfortable bed and Sue is awesome as a host. Her team are also excellent and the stay included a great breakfast. I would definitely stay again!
