I stayed here for 4 nights in late November 2016 at a 'special' rate of R1 500 (which I did not ask for) per night (single B&B). This was very generous especially at that time of year. The lodge is situated in the very upmarket Constantia suburb of Cape Town, with good highway access, on a large property with (I'd... More

Dear guest The 'special rate", clearly we should not have offered, even though it was offered out of good faith, as you had mentioned that you were coming down on business. Here, we were thinking you were working on a case in Cape Town, and needed a good corporate rate, whilst attending court. Our decor and color scheme is different... More

Beautiful property, great dinner and breakfast, and very comfortable room. It was enjoyable having drinks in the lounge before a very tasty dinner. Would love to spend more time at Glen Avon Lodge. It is a perfect location of wine tasting in the Constantia region.

Although only here for a short stay we were made very welcome, our late arrival smoothly catered for. The room was quiet and comfortable, and we thoroughly enjoyed our al fresco breakfast surrounded by the iceberg roses.

We were on the Cape Town leg of our 'Safari' trip and our operator recommended staying some few miles out of town - in the Southern suburbs of Constantia.

In an area that I am not too familiar with, the beautiful Constantia, you find this wonderful and charming guesthouse.

Nice place just outside of Cape Town. Quiet, laid back and a lovely garden surrounding the main building. Breakfast and dinner were a treat. Leave everything to Livison and friends and you're all set to go. In need of a cab? Ask for Fiona, she'll get you anywhere you need to go!
