A lovely place to stay. Clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable beds and fresh crisp linen. Other touches like welcome packs and snacks made the stay memorable. Walking distance to a lovely eatery Barristers and around the corner from shops.

Big, clean and well equipped Studio. B&B located in a peaceful street but few steps away from commercial centers and restaurants. It is not in the city center, but in a suburb of Cape Town. We had our own car and it was not a problem at all. Generous breakfast in the morning and excellent hosts and staff. Very good...

Great place to overnight, the room was lovely and clean with a little courtyard outside, self-catering rooms with delicious breakfast available in the mornings. The staff are friendly, there is off street parking and it is close to some great restaurants. Sue is a wonderful host, thank you for your hospitality.

I stayed in one of the loft rooms upstairs. I really like this place for its value for money. Such a good price including a delicious breakfast and the rooms are fully self-catering as well. The bed was very comfortable and although the room does get quite hot during midday, there is an air conditioner to cool things down. Sue...

Oak trees, roses, rooibos, aloe, solar geyser and natural spring water... Glenhaven Cottages brings a touch of nature to the city. Conveniently located near Newlands Stadium, I was surprised at the tranquility. The skylights, reed-finished ceilings and a small balcony give character to the comfortable top floor units. A generous helping of complementary snacks are provided, and rooms have mini-bars....

Glenhaven is a lovely small place close to all the necessary amenities and yet far from the buzz of the city. If you are looking for peace and quite - this is a perfect place for you. It is like home away from home.

“The "Swiss Cottage", where we stayed is really charming and convenient. For a bit more room, try the downstairs suite that has its own private patio and full bathroom. We thought we might try that next time. There will be a next time.”
