Glen Avon Lodge is a luxury, eco-friendly boutique hotel located in Cape Town’s Constantia suburb, which is noted for its copious wine production. Built in the mid-18th century by slaves for a farmer, this smart and stylish property has a rich and extensive history; today it’s a highly rated family-run hotel with owners who take meticulous pride in making it as comfortable and convenient as possible for all who stay here.

All rooms are spacious and tastefully presented. Amenities include air conditioning, a minibar, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels and tea and coffee making facilities. The marble en-suite bathrooms have both a bathtub and a walk-in shower, along with twin wash basins and heated towel racks – complimentary toiletries are provided. There are three grades of room: Double Rooms, Standard Suites and Deluxe Suites. The latter two have a butler’s kitchenette where light meals can be prepared; all have their own balcony or patio overlooking either the gardens or the pool area. Children are welcome and extra beds can be provided in parent rooms.

Continental breakfast is served buffet-style in the main dining room or out on the patio, with optional cooked orders available on request. Lighter bites such as tea, coffee, sandwiches and cakes can be ordered by the pool or in rooms throughout the day. For evening meals, the restaurant offers a full gourmet dining experience preceded by sundowners out on the patio. The menu features a carefully curated selection of local and international dishes.

While the hotel is very much a tranquil haven, it also happens to be conveniently close to many of Cape Town’s top attractions. The city centre is just 15 minutes away and is a hub of activity with scores of shops, restaurants, galleries, bars and theatres to discover - the waterfront, in particular, is always abuzz with tourists and locals alike. The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, widely praised for its abundant and diverse flora, is a ten-minute drive away and the spectacular, flat-topped Table Mountain is also within easy reach; access to the peak is via a five-minute cable car ride. There are several pristine beaches nearby, along with numerous golf courses and a smattering of bountiful wine farms. When not exploring the city's many offerings, there's a lovely pool to relax in back at the hotel.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
