Baie lekker rustig.

Baie netjies en skoon. Sue is baie vriendelik en help graag. Goeie ligging, loopafstand van Nuweland rugby en krieket! Dit was ons tweede keer by Glenhaven en gaan beslis weer gaan.

Spacious, comfortable and well appointed room.

Glenhaven is well located near major routes, shops and restaurants, but in a quiet neighbourhood. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, well appointed and perfect for basic self-catering. Delicious breakfasts are provided.

Comfortable, homey atmosphere.

We enjoyed our overnight stay at Glenhaven. The host himself prepared breakfast and was very friendly.

Gerieflike, huislike atmosfeer.

Ons het ons oornagverblyf by Glenhaven geniet. Die gasheer het self vir ons ontbyt voorberei en was baie vriendelik.

Fantastically central and wonderful hospitality of Sue.

Had a wonderful stay. One night's stay and breakfast was very tasty. Lovely safe area and very close to Newlands. Bed was nice and there was a ceiling fan and air conditioner. It's everything you need.

Fantasties sentraal en wonderlike gasvryheid van Sue.

Het wonderlik gebly. Een aand oorgeslaap en ontbyt was baie lekker. Lieflike veilige area en baie naby aan Nuweland. Bed was lekker en daar is 'n plafonwaaier en lugversorger. Het alles wat mens nodig het.

Well located.

Glenhaven is walking distance from Newlands, thus we didn't use our car and could enjoy enjoy a drink. The owners of the house offers reasonable privacy to their guests. Sue and her husband are very friendly, the stay was worthwhile.

Goed geleë.

Glenhaven is loopafstand vanaf Nuweland, dus het ons nie ons motor gebruik nie en kon 'n drankie geniet. Die eienaars van die huis bied redelike privaatheid aan hul gaste. Sue en haar man is baie vriendelik. "The stay was worthwhile".

Presies waar ons wou wees vir ons afsprake.

Glenhaven is goed geleë. Tussen M3 en M4 en 5. By rugby en krieket. Mooi en ruim kamers met sitkamer, kombuis en binnehof. Lekker ontbyt op 'n heerlike stoep met 'n lieflike swembad.

Value for money! Excellent location!

We received a warm welcoming from Sue. Our room had all the necessities, even an oven with oven dishes! You are welcomed by complimentary snacks and drinks in your room. A fresh bottle of mineral water is placed in the room every day — free of charge. The breakfast was sufficient. Only the best products are used. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the air conditioning. The loft had the most beautiful windows in the roof which ensures a breeze in the room. Glenhaven is ideally situated. You can walk everywhere. We went for a meal at the best burger and pizza places. It's 3 minutes from a small but proficient Woolies Food. There is a French bakery with the prettiest pastries. Cavendish Square walking distance, but it depends on how much you are planning on buying/carrying. We recommend Glenhaven to anyone. Our only problem was that we couldn't stay any longer.

Waarde vir geld! Uitstekende ligging!

Ons was pragtig ontvang deur Sue. Ons kamer het oor alles beskik wat 'n mens nodig het, selfs 'n oond met oondbakke! Jy word verwelkom met gratis peuselhappies en drinkgoedjies in jou kamer. Daar word elke dag 'n vars bottel mineraalwater in jou kamer gesit - gratis. Die ontbyt was voldoende. Net die beste produkte word gebruik. Ons het die swembad geniet en kon die lugversorger geniet toe dit baie warm was. Die loft het die mooiste vensters in die dak wat sorg vir 'n trek in die vertrek. Glenhaven is ideaal geleë. Jy kan stap waar jy wil wees. Ons kon gaan eet by die beste burger- en pizzaplekke. Dis 3 min weg van 'n klein, maar knap, Woolies Food. Daar is 'n Franse bakkery met die mooiste 'pastries'. Cavendish Square is ook bereikbaar te voet, maar dit hang mos nou maar af oor hoe baie jy gaan koop/dra. Ons beveel Glenhaven vir enige iemand aan. Ons enigste probleem is dat ons te kort gekuier het.

Very pleasant and relaxing. Can highly recommend it, especially if you are busy on the Rondebosch side of the mountain.

The guesthouse's location is perfect and the accommodation was very pleasant. Sue is a very charming hostess and her staff are friendly and helpful. The omelette breakfast is 5-star!

Baie aangenaam en ontspanne. Sterk aan te beveel, veral as jy aan Rondebosch se kant van die berg doenig is!

Die gastehuis se ligging is perfek en die verblyf was baie aangenaam. Sue is 'n baie sjarmante gasvrou en haar personeel vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Die omelette-ontbyt is vyf-ster!

Die gastehuis het ten volle aan ons behoefte voldoen. Die personeel was vriendelik en behulpsaam en ons het 'n keurig voorbereide ontbyt geniet.

Sue Joustra was a delightful host and breakfast on the family patio was a delight

The directions to get to Glenhaven were excellent, Sue, her husband and her animals were most welcoming and the room was airy and light, well equipped and is in a lovely leafy suburb of Cape Town. The stairs are steep but we were warned in advance and can say that the bannisters are very strong! The narrow road is very busy but somehow she manages to juggle the 5 parking places for her guests and family!!! Instead of being couped up in your room waiting for a delicious breakfast, you are invited to join the other guests beside the pool. Marvellous. nI would definitely recommend it as we really enjoyed our stay.

Very enjoyable well situated for our purpose.

If I had to list a negative for the Chalet upstairs, it would be that a bit more privacy is needed on the ablutions side. Other then that, a stunning place!
