Friendly and helpful reception by Gerrit. Thanks so much. Location was perfect for our group. Close to restaurants and entertainment but far enough away from the noise. Great parking for the motor bikes and trailer.

Easy place to live in. Fully equipped kitchen. All the appliances functioned properly. The fridge was noisy. Comfortable bed. Full dstv service. Free WiFi. Great view from our room. Ready walking distance from town centre. Room serviced daily. Bathroom could do with a make over.

Clarens Retreat is ideally located off the highway into the National Park and next to the cosy centre of Clarens. The room is very agreable and the under carpet heating turned out to be very enjoyable at the end of winter ;-) The breakfast option...More
