We had a fantastic stay at Zwartmodder. The owner Marlise was great with her communication, care to detail and making sure all was in order for our arrival. The rooms were neat and clean with very comfortable bedding and the complimentary waters, rusks, sherry, milk and other snacks were most welcome. The manicured garden is amazing and we certainly felt we had made the right choice in staying there. Would highly recommend.

This is a lovely guesthouse with a beautiful garden. Decently situated and offers a good base for Clarens-tourists (perhaps older guests). We will return when our children are older, since it might not be the best option if you have a
small youngens.

This was the first time I've actually stayed over in Clarens and the boyfriend spoilt me with an early Valentine's day getaway.

What a gorgeous little place. We got a lovely glass of home made ice tea on arrival - so cute. The actual guest house was cosy, quaint, clean and relaxing.

Our host was also the sweetest, she gave us recommendations on hiking trails and where to have dinner. The best part, she let us be. Was just tentative enough but not intrusive.

If we come past Clarens again, this is definitely where we will be staying again.

Thank you for such a lovely stay.

We visited Clarens this past weekend .Our stay at Zwartmodder was a pleasant surprise.

From the time of booking, the guest house owners were friendly and efficient. They did their best to have the room ready for us early so we could freshen up before the wedding we had to attended in Clarens.

The rooms are beautifully decorated and each one has a personal touch. We were greeted with water, fruit juice and a nougat on each bed. Its the small things like this that made the big difference.

Our room was able to sleep 5 people , a comfortable stay for a family with children. The room was clean and well kept. Our room offered a full bathroom, a separate toilet ,small fridge, microwave and kettle with tea and coffee. There is only enough parking for one car per room in the property.

I will definitely stay at Zwartmodder guest house on our next trip to Clarens

The Zwartmodder room for couples is very comfortable, and Zwartmodder is very well located for views of the surrounding mountains and access to the village of Clarens. The garden is lovely and the hostess is very hospitable.

On arrival one is greeted with beautiful well-tended gardens, an indication of the attention to detail at Zwartmodder.
A lot of thought and effort has gone into providing what guests would like to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and well maintained, the beds comfortable, the linens good quality and pristine. There are two rooms one with a queen sized bed and another with two double beds.
The bathroom has a bath and shower and there is a separate toilet.
Everything is about luxury and comfort.
The Host is very friendly and extremely obliging. The surroundings themselves are very tranquil and calm and everything that we were looking for.
Oh, and they are two adorable Jack russells that kept us entertained for hours!
We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you Marlise. We will be back.

We recently stayed at Zwartmodder B&B in Clarens for 1 night. What a pleasant place to stay in the lovely town of Clarens. The owners were so welcoming and catered to our every need. Big comfortable beds in the two bedroom suite with microwave and all utensils required for warming up/cooking a small meal. Breakfast was wonderful and the garden setting so tranquil. About 3 blocks from the town square where there are lots of restaurants and all the interesting art/food shops. I can highly recommend a stay here.

We had a lovely stay at Zwartmodder in Clarens. Marlise is a very detail-oriented, warm and helpful host.
We’ve stayed in a the double room which consists of a queen-size-bed, a small tea & coffee corner with handbaked rusks by Marlise. The garden with the view to the surrounding mountains is fantastic. We’ve arrived to self made lemonade and crackers and chocolate. The room has got everything you need for a comfy stay in Clarens. Parking is secure and right in front of the accommodation. Marlise and her husbands are fabulous hosts with lots of advice on further travel routes. We could have not chosen a better place to stay in Clarens and would totally recommend it to anyone else.

I have stayed in Clarens many times over the past few years. This place has clearly become my favorite. While it is generally work that takes us to Clarens, I would opt to go for a holiday. In any case, Zwartmodder provides a friendly and relaxing atmosphere at a very reasonable price. Everything from the decor to the hostess is pleasant and contributes to the memory of a tranquil rest.
