Liked - The location of the hotel was perfect, just outside the hustle and bustle of Clarens town center but far enough to enjoy the amazing landscape and beauty of the area. The hotel staff were amazing, always so helpful & very professional. The rooms were lovely, well decorated, modern looking & very comfortable. The breakfasts were average but edible. We had dinner 1 out of the 4 nights we stayed & it really wasn't anything to rave about but decent enough. Unfortunately the first night we had loadshedding so the food offering was limited which was understandable but still reasonably prepared. On our 2nd day we had spa treatments booked, the therapists were quite lovely & friendly, even though the quality of the treatments were below average. All in all a decent stay.

Disliked · This is the disappointing part, through out our entire stay there was a horrid sewage leak running directly in front of the lower rooms of the hotel, where our rooms were located & we had the constant stench of sewage in the air. We complained to staff about this but all we got was ' it's the munipalicity's problem'. This was very disappointing because I've seen a few prior complaints about the very same issue & seems like there is really no actions being taken to sort this out. What a pity. As our stay was over a long weekend, naturally there were large family groups (sometimes very noisy) but that can be expected.

Room Tip: Book a room on the top levels, better views & not as noisy as the road level family rooms....

The Rooms are great everything is fine, the cleaning people must do their job, in my room I could see that the room had not been cleaned, like mopped prior to my arrival, I used the room for three nights and the stains on the bathroom floor and on the stool remained visible. My room was 24. The people who clean must be supervised, someone must check if the room is clean prior to allocate it to the next person. Cleanliness was compromised. The room is next to some Generator, so, during load-shedding, one could hardly sleep due to the noise made by the generator. But that was understandable, the cleanliness is the main issue, the room was dirty for the duration of my stay. Workers just come in and refill bath stuff and make the bed and leave! the rest is left undone.

Such a clean and beautiful place. The views are amazing, it doesnt matter where you sit, you are faced with lovely mountains. For me travelling alone, i had the peace that i needed. I had to ask to change the room i was allocated because there was bit of traffic and I am not sure if i arrived when staff was on Lunch, they were talking just outside my room. The one i was moved to had a private balcony which made me relax and feel free. i had the best time ever. The tub needs to be fixed and the shower was not cleaned, so i ddnt use it.

This place is well advertised but fails to deliver on so many levels. Despite booking a room a whole month in advance and the full cost being deducted from our account, we arrived and were told we did not have a booking. after some searching our reservation was found but our initially reserved room was given away to other guests. The room we got was cramped despite being called an executive, did not have a balcony or any seating place outside to enjoy the beautiful views we actually drove to Clarens for and super over priced. The aircon did not work consistently. The whole place reeks of sewerage with water running down the grass and road. The wifi is patchy at best and at some point does not work at all. The breakfast is still buffet style even in these COVID-19 times. we had a spa treatment for 60 minutes which lasted 45minutes. We also booked the treatment because we were told guests get 20% off however we were charged the full amount for the treatments on check-out. To think we spent such a long time planning to go to Mont d'Or but it really disappointed.

Mont d'Or has the perfect location for not being right on the main road so that when Clarens is busy, you don't get stuck in traffic. Also easy to get on the road to Lesotho / Afriski.
The family room is spacious enough for 4 and warm on those cold winter nights! The food we ordered via room service was fresh and tasty! Would definitely stay here again if given the chance!

WOW! What an amazing stay. The rooms were spotless, the beds were super comfortable with more than enough heating for cold nights. Tommy and the the rest of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. And above all this, the views of the surrounding mountains were spectacular. Will not stay anywhere else when I visit Clarens.

This hotel had some bad reviews in the weeks before we came but they certainly sorted all that out. We had a great room, top floor with mountain view. Really great experience from all staff. Food was good all day. Spa treatments were great. Management were very accommodating when we cut our trip short by one day and did not charge us. Thanks very much.

After seven days of hiking we booked our last night in utter luxury. Mont d'Or 's webpage was actually an understatement of just how beautiful and well kept a hotel it is! It is a MUST use when you spend time in Clarens. The rates are reasonable, the food exquisite and the service way above the norm!

I stayed at Mont D'Or in Clarens for three nights for the recent Easter weekend. Despite the hotel being full, there was no compromise on staff hospitality, courteous round-the-clock service, comfort and quality. The scrambled eggs at breakfast are much recommended and the manager went out of her way to provide us with tips for nearby hiking trails. The hotel is spotlessly clean with a great ambience, spacious rooms and very helpful and knowledgeable staff, making it worth every penny for the luxurious experience offered. It looks as good on the inside as it does in the photos online! Definitely recommended for your next stay in Clarens!

Hi Clarens Mont d'Or team

We really enjoyed our stay at Mont'd'Or and appreciated the 3 bedroomed self-catering unit which had comfortable beds and aircon. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The staff at the Mont d'Or hotel next door also gladly delivered ice in a bucket when requested.

What a gorgeous hotel with lovely staff. It was very clean and the rooms were comfortable and tastefully decorated.

Thank you so much for your hospitality!
