Situated just off the shore of False Bay between Fish Hoek and Simon’s Town, the Glencairn Hotel has been hosting holidaymakers and travellers for over 100 years…

Dating back to 1904, the building has been transformed, with the opening of the Barstaurant the final ‘cherry on the cake’.

Character preserved, with a modern menu flair

The beauty and character of the historical Glencairn Hotel has been meticulously preserved to showcase its unique and hidden features. Local contractors were used during the renovation process, which created 40 jobs.

In line with the ethos of a family business, the interiors were designed by the owners themselves, with the assistance of third generation decorator Camlyn Goosen, to create a stylish, yet casual family restaurant and neighbourhood bar.
