Hotel Review

The Glen offers casually chic style and comfort, rather than focusing on being a party venue. With large terraces, and a lovely private pool and spa area for residents, this is a relaxing place to unwind. Well situated for downtown restaurants, clubs, beaches and for exploring the beautiful Western Cape, the Glen is a welcome addition to up-market gay travel.
