We stayed at Glen Boutique Hotel for two weeks. We had a wonderful experience with the whole team. Especially Joshua is very welcoming and makes sure that you are happy 24/7. He is very passionated and communicative. So whatever you need, he hqs a solution for everything you ask for. In the morning the whole team is so interested in your wellbeing and everyone gives you a good feeling. We always had breakfast and dinner at the hotel, because we really enjoyed it. Especially the breakfast was very good and healthy. For a few days we felt sick and they made sure that we get breakfast to our room and made a special and fresh ginger lemon tea for us. It was just like family. All in all we really recommend staying at Glen Boutique Hotel. Especially staying at Seapoint is beautiful. Staying here will make your Capetown experience very positive and safe.

Having been to this wonderful hotel more times than I can remember, I just felt compelled to write how amazing this place is after my return this morning. The staff are incredibly attentive and more importantly happy and friendly - from the management to the maintenance teams. The food is superb - everything is home-cooked and you can taste the effort the chef's put into each dish. The overall ambiance is second-to-none, and the cocktails are pretty damned good to!! You can see from the photos how much of an oasis this place is. The pool is delightful (refreshing salt water), with a plentiful supply of beds and towels all day long. The rooms are beautifully appointed, comfortable and clean, each with their own subtle styling that makes you feel like it's yours for the time you're there - and even more so after the turn-down service in the evenings. I absolutely love the place, and as a solo traveler am really made to feel part of the hotel family. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the team, headed by the awesome owner Mark and supported by Mamma Juliana :-)
