What an absolute GEM! The room was lovely, the view beyond stunning, the garden and grounds lovely with beautiful birds of the area visiting the lovely garden. The owner Karel is great and welcoming!! The staff is friendly, attentive and notices the smallest little detail. Talking of detail, they spare no small detail in making your stay lovely, comfortable and enjoyable! Breakfast is also lovely and everything is made fresh and on order which was awesome as I personally hate buffet style for warm food. We will strongly recommend them as a stay over in Clarens. And they are within 2 minute walking distance of the main attractions in the center of town. Tea and coffee and fresh water is also topped up daily. Highly, Highly Recommend

This B&B goes the extra mile. Small details such as fresh milk daily in you room makes the difference. The breakfast is lovely with personal attention by Karel. White bed linen compliments the spacious room and complimentary bathroom condiments ( black make up face cloth, cotton buds etc. ) are appreciated.Harley the family dog welcomes you with his wagging tail. Will visit again.

We stayed overnight at Patcham, we can just say wow, wow what a beautiful place and attention to detail, Karel cannot be faulted on anything, one just feels at home and it is so very clean and breakfast is so good. We ordered just fruit, cereal, yoghurt and toast and he was quite worried that we had ordered so little, no other host would have that concern, thanks for the alchol free beer Bob really appreciates your running up and down to bring it to us. Your B&B will always be recommended by us Bob and Denise Burnett

Good location in quiet street close to central square and nature reserve, comfortable accommodation in spacious room with private shower, toilet and kitchenette with fridge, microwave, cutlery and crockery, also outside balcony. Good plentiful breakfasts. I arrived late and I appreciated the explanation provided of how to get in, also of advice provided regarding the best route and roads to avoid. Built in cupboard space was limited, the cupboard was already half full of pillows, blankets and the like.

I had a beautiful room which opened onto the garden. The room was well equipped, breakfast was delicious and Karen accommodated my request for a slightly liter breakfast so that I could do parkrun (which started 2 mins from the B&B). Highly recommend

An excellent place to stay as it is within easy walking distance, less than 400 meters, from all the amenities n town. Other areas ie Golden Gate, Baris, Noah's Cheese etc are a short drive away.
The accommodation is comfortable and a solid, tasty well prepared breakfast serves as good preparations for the day. Friendly and very helpful owner and staff.

What a wonderful stay we had at PATCHAMS PLACE. Our rooms were comfortable with a quaint veranda over looking the beautiful mountain with its most awesome autumn colors. Crisp clean fresh linen and towels were provided and a marvelous breakfast dished up for us with just that special touch to lets us know we were most welcome. If you ever heard the word "nastergal" and don't know what it is, please go and taste it at their breakfast table ! Thank you for a delightful time guys.

Located within 100m of the town square, this property is very well managed by Karel the owner. Clean and comfortable is all one needs whilst visiting the sights and sounds in Clarens. The breakfast is a real winner - the fruit salad is awesome, so are the other fare. Highly recommended.
The road getting there is gravel - but very short distance.

My room was comfortable and in addition to a shower and toilet I had a kitchenette with a fridge and microwave, also an outside balcony with a table and chairs. The location is excellent, quiet but only a few minutes walk from the central square, restaurants etc, also close to the nature reserve where there are many walks and a wide variety of scenery. There is a lovely garden facing the nature reserve.
I enjoyed the good filling breakfasts. The owner was helpful in giving me information and a map of the nature reserve.
One area where I think that there is room for improvement is the matter of load shedding (a problem throughout South Africa, the power may be off for about 2 hours at a time or longer once daily or more frequently). The owner and staff should have details of the local daily schedule and this information could be communicated better to guests. I went out for a meal one evening only to find out at the restaurant that load shedding in Clarens was about to start in about 15 minutes time, the first that I knew about it. I got my meal but the power was still off at Patcham Place on my return. They have outside solar powered lighting but none of the lights in my room worked until the power was restored. The light on my phone was not much use as the phone required a recharge. I later found that there was an emergency light in my kitchenette but I only discovered this the following morning.

What a great place to stay. Friendly staff, lovely breakfast, great rooms with mountain view. I will be going back there for sure!! We arrived about 3 hours before check in. Usually places don't allow people to check in early, but Patcham didn't have a problem with an early check in at all, which was so convenient. We stayed in room 4 which is a decent size with a little kitchenette consisting of a fridge, kettle and microwave

When we stayed there it was a gift from our son and daughter in law so we were not aware of the price. However, you should contact Patchm Place on their website and you will get answers to all your questions. The owners are wonderful people and I would highly recommend a stay there any time. Enjoy!! Monica.
