Glen Avon Lodge is real luxury in wonderful gardens conveniently situated for Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula
Glen Avon Lodge is one of our personal favourites. It is a gracious gem tucked away in the heart of the Constantia Winelands approximately 20 minutes drive from the centre of Cape Town. The hotel, which is a consistent favourite with our clients, has 11 beautifully furnished en-suite rooms. These are set in the wonderful traditional Cape Dutch gardens and present a very calm environment. There is a beautiful pool to relax alongside after a hectic day. The property is owner run and this adds to the excellence of the service you will find from a dedicated staff.
