Beautiful apartment in the heart of Clarens with fantastic amenities and within walking distance of everything. Caters for full self catering. We loved the feel of the apartment and a definite must stay for any couple!

I loved that the room was not tend to... we could sleep and sleep and sleep!! We will visit you again! It would be nice if there was a patio on the room side (on that roof) We think it will be perfect and very private!! But otherwise, we loved it there!!

We stayed at at the LA Poste apartment and were treated to crisp clean linen and the comfiest bed. We loved how close to everything we were and yet completely private relaxation in our little apartment .

The access road is so badly washed away that you can only access the property with a bakkie or 4 x 4 .
The staircase is TOTALLY illegal and unsafe. One of my friends actually hurt himself on the staircase.
The maintenance is not done.
At + R600,00 per person per night for bed only , you expect MUCH more.
Views are amazing.
Bedding clean.
This was my second stay ( first stay was +/- 6 years ago and I mentioned all the same problems) Not much changed in 6 years.
You expect much more than 2 x R500,00 "Pick and Pay" braai's.
I stayed in the basement. The bathroom is at another level and is 1 meter x 1 meter with a shower under the STEEP wooden staircase.
The wooden floors are in such bad state that if someone walk's down the passage, the beds in the rooms bounce up and down.
EXTREMELY noisy. Not sound proof AT ALL !!!

We had a fantastic stay! What a wonderful time at la poste. Great location, very clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and we loved the wood stove, such a lovely touch to the room. Will recommend and will stay again!

La Poste is dubbed the Honeymoon Suite and it certainly felt like a second honeymoon. It is ideally situated literally in the middle of Clarens and is a convenient walk to everywhere. The actual suite is tastefully furnished and the bonus is having original Hoyle artwork on the walls ! It is perfect for a few days in Clarens and we will definitely be back

When you arrive at Ridgeroad it really feels and looks like you are somewhere in Provence or Tuscany. The house is authentic and beautifully appointed with all the mod-cons one can wish for. Beautiful sweeping views over the valley towards the mountains. Our group of 12 had the best time ever - plenty of space to gather together but also enough space if you need alone time. We can HIGHLY recommend Ridgeroad as the perfect spot to celebrate with good friends or family. We’ll definitely be back !

Excellent!! You could not have asked for me. So warm and friendly and the house exceeded our expectations. Warm and welcoming!

From the moment when booked until the return of the key's, everyone was very helpful and friendly. The house was perfect for our family and friends and could not have wished for anything more.

Exceptionally done!

We spent the weekend at Ridge Road Country house with a group of friends. It’s beautifully appointed with plenty of space, great art, a gorgeous kitchen with working AGA and spacious bedrooms most of which are en suite. Fus the giant, gentle Irish Wolfhound was there to welcome us and was impeccably behaved throughout our stay. Loved the fact that communal areas and our bedroom (number 1) were toasty warm in mid-June thanks to a number of fireplaces throughout the property. Would definitely recommend and looking forward to returning in summer to try out the mountain stream fed pool.
