We have stayed at Patcham Place a few times previously, but on our most recent visit, there was no hot water at 06h00 on our first morning. On reporting this to the owner just before breakfast, he immediately checked the switchboard, and a look of horror followed - someone had forgotten to switch the geyser on! An apology and offer...

Patcham Place B&B is a beautiful, homely 5-room B&B nestled just around the corner of the town square of Clarens. No need to worry about finding parking over busy weekends in this popular little town, when staying at Patcham Place! One can enjoy uninterrupted views of the adjacent mountains and interesting activities of the rich bird life going on in...

There is an upstairs division that accomodates 4 rooms with awsome views of the garden and the surrounding mountains. The 5th room is down stairs with its own patio leading onto the garden. Most beatiful in the autum...

Wow! What can we say!? From the moment we arrived here we were made to feel welcome in a "home away from home". Carol & Richard are outstanding down to earth hosts which made our stay just that much more memorable. The continental breakfasts are TO DIE FOR! Definately the best we have ever had. The accomodation was incredibly comfortable...

Carol and Richard are wonderful hosts and have a terrific rest stop in Clarens for those passing through and those who can make it their destination and spend some time. We stayed in room 5 which is ground floor and had a lovely patio out in the magnificent garden. Carol feeds the birds every morning and the bird life is...

Patcham Place is everything I could ask for in a B&B. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and it felt like you were staying in a house, not a generic hotel. The hosts (Carol and Richard) were there when we needed them, offering suggestions for what to see or where to eat, without being overwhelming. We even received coupons for a...

We had the good fortune of spending three nights at Patcham Place over the New Year weekend. Richard and Carol are amazing hosts, the rooms extremely comfortable, garden is beautiful as are the views. Patcham Place is perfectly located within strolling distance to the all the restaurants, shops and art galleries. Highly recommended.
