Nothing is too much trouble for the wonderful team at the Glen, who ensured we had the most magical 5 days in Cape Town. The attention to detail is unrivalled; the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the spa is fantastic and breakfast is simply brilliant.

Dear Alex W, 'I Knew You Were Waiting' to criticise our music. Playing George Michael all day long on the day of his passing was indeed 'Careless' of us. You should have 'Whispered' into my ear and we would certainly have accommodated a more solemn number... but jokes aside, the team here are delighted with your 'Flawless' feedback (sorry I...

We had a superb stay at the Glen, because the staff does everything to feel you welcome and give great service. The room, especially the bed and shower are perfect. The start of the day is always good because of the delicious breakfast! Most important they realize that it is all about the details! We love to come back!
