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. An exquisite, boutique hotel with the perfect balance of authentic S. African charm, luxurious accommodation, beautiful gardens, excellent food and a perfectly attentive, empathetic and friendly staff. Glen Avon certainly balances...

In an area that I am not too familiar with, the beautiful Constantia, you find this wonderful and charming guesthouse. We booked for two nights, but after having enjoyed the great atmosphere, the lazy lingering in the wonderful garden at the pool, the wonderful meals and personal service, we decided not to leave and stay for another day.

We've booked 2 rooms for a 4 night stay and were very enthusiastic about the place when we arrived. However, there where some minor flaws that they weren't able to solve during our stay with the electricity. So we weren't able to watch television or use other electronics. The owner apologist about this inconvenience, so it wasn't a real problem....

Thank you for writing on trip advisor...we apologize again for the inconvenience of the electricity, but can only put the fault down to something that was either plugged in, or maybe the wet washing that you had over the towel rails in the bathrooms. We have been fully booked in these rooms since your departure, and have not had any...

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!

The lodge is in a beautiful residential area close to Cape Town and Hout Bay. It's a rather big premise so there's enough space for all guests to relax in the gardens, lounge, terrace etc. It provides privacy and a personal and friendly service. Food was great, too. Recommendable for those travelling with a car and exploring the city and...

Only one remark, when you think of renovating the bath rooms you may want to think about moving the shower tabs. Place them in a possession that you can get the water temp right with out getting wet. Thank you for your hospitality

What a pleasant stay. Glen Avon is a well equipped lodge with friendly staff. We arrived rather late at night but were welcomed with broad smiles and assisted to the large, well equipped rooms. A great breakfast is served in the 220 year old main building. All in all a great experience worth recommending.

A wonderful place to base your Cape experience. The accommodation is spacious, clean and comfortable and the food is excellent. A car would be useful but the receptionist arranged a wonderful driver/guide for us. We stayed 3 nights but needed more time to see everything so we will return.

Thank you for your review. The next time you are in Cape Town, we are able to assist with car hire, and of course directions, although its always nice to learn about the Country and ones surroundings, with a driver or tour guide. There's always more to see and do, on each visit into Cape Town, our beautiful wonderful city!...
