The main house has battery generated power so breakfasts and dinners are never delayed. The three course meal was absolutely scrumptious. Staff - wow! Well done Glen Avon...

We had a very nice time at the Glen Avon lodge. The room large, fine and clean, a large bathroom with shouwer and bath. Great breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff. A good place to start the day and visit all the highlights of Cape Town. Close to the wineries of Constantia.

Great accommodation and excellent food and service. Just two points to help the elderly! To provide a non slip bath mat and similar for the shower floor which can be lethal! Most impressed with the level of service. Nothing too much trouble
