We had an early arrival after an overnight flight from London and our room was ready. The whole team were very friendly and efficient. The room and facilities were very good but particular mention must be made of the dinner. A limited menu but superbly presented.

Wonderful surroundings, great location and wonderful food. Staff were most obliging especially Henford and Liviston. Good wifi, but free limit was limited and could surely be extended for whole stay. Thank you.

Just finished our 5th South African trip with the last 3 days staying at Glen Avon Lodge. From the time you park the car to departing the staff are all there to make your stay both memorable & totally stress free. The in-house restaurant is certainly worth booking. All the products are freshly prepared with a very good wine selection....

When we are in the Cape town area we also pick Glen Avon in Constantia as our home base. Nice and quiet, predictable and classy service. The Zim staff together with David, Wendy and Lara do a great job. We enjoy being there, being pampered and receiving the true hospitality. Rooms are comfortable and we recommend a garden room or...

Quiet cul-de-sac in close proximity to some wonderful wine estates. Clean, well appointed room with spacious bathroom. Great mattress! Appreciated the block out curtains. TV could be upgraded! Attentive, knowledgeable staff. A most pleasant lodge. We will definitely return.

A superb base for short or long stays. Attentive staff, spacious suite with a high level of facilities. Balcony and garden with swimming pool. Very substantial meals with cordon bleu presentation and content. Close to Constantia Village and Mall and of course Cape Town itself. A quite haven after travelling which would be difficult to improve.
