We recently had a wonderful stay at Clarens Eddies. The units were very neat and clean and very comfortable. They thought of everything. The owner Dawn is a jewel and her knowledge about the local hikes are astounding. She also advised us on things to do and places to go as well as giving us valuable info on the best restaurants to eat at. The staff was always friendly and very professional. As it is centrally located we were able to enjoy many walks around town and did not even need to take our car. We plan on going back very soon and doing a few hikes with Dawn. All in all we had a wonderful stay in Clarens at Clarens Eddies.

Excellent and value for money accommodation. Dawn is absolutely hands-on. The accommodation is very neat and stocked with everything you will need - towels, coffee etc. They have the best chocolates in the fridge. Will definitely go back.

Had a lovely stay, albeit short. Very Clean rooms and great location. Secure parking. Owner was very friendly and helpful, recommended where we should eat in the evening, and also offered that we go on a nature walk up the mountain with her. Would definitely stay here again should I visit Clarens again.

Lovely comfortable stay at Eddies.
The host stays on the property so that makes check in and check out super easy, even with our travels when we arrived very late in the evening.
Covid Lockdown Pit - Last Orders for restaurant take away is at pm and doors close at 8pm.

Dangerously high placed microwave holds a danger to ANYBODY trying to warm food .due to its un realistically high position . Terribly small bathroom
Dangerous parking area . Car rolled forward and caused some minor damage . The owner gave a unrealistic quote to repair .
Never came across such a rude owner when you don’t give here a score SHE think she is worth . Her response here will be predictable claiming her KIND service making the client a liar as she threatened in private communication

Response from Dawn Trevelyan, Owner at Clarens Eddies
Responded 30 Dec 2021
Johann Strydom checked out on 22.12.21. At 5am the check out morning he was at the owners front door in his pajamas. He forgot to pull up his vehicles' hand break and he could not get the moving vehicle out where it got stuck. The moving vehicle damaged the cement and paving. The owner spend 5 hours to get people to pull out the stucked vehicle without damages for Johann. Johann showed much appreciation for the owner's help. Johann said that he will always come back to Eddies guest house. He described the accommodation and service as perfect. He referred to the cleanliness of the accommodation. Johann congratulated the owner on her hands on approach on the property. He mentioned the owner's helpfulness, kindness and willingness to walk the extra mile for him as a guest. Johann left the premises as a very happy and satisfied guest. He said that the owner can count on his excellent review. He repeatedly offered to pay for the damage. The owner sent him the quote for the repair of the damage and believed that if Johann was unhappy about the cost he would discuss it with the owner. No unhappiness was voiced. There never was any argument between the owner and Johann. Just after the quote for repairs was send to Johann the owner was horrified to see that Johann scored the guest house and owner zero on this website and the booking website he used. The owner got no answers to her questions why the sudden change in the rating of Eddies guest house. Johann's feedback to the owner and the wilfull action to harm Eddies guest house and the owner with poor reviews showed anger. The reviews are dishonest and show that the reviewer has no integrity or character.

We did enjoy staying with Eddies Guest House, the room rate is what our budget was. The room was nice and clean, the linen of the bed was lovely and did smell lovely as well.
The towels was so soft and did smell fresh!

Room Tip: Maybe just to lower the TV, as you sit on the bed it's just a bit to high against the wall.

Our stay at Eddies was relaxing and comfortable in a quiet, friendly environment that was well equipped and modern. Location is close to the centre of Clarens, and also close to the nature reserve. Owner and staff are efficient and friendly.

We were a large group who stayed for 7 nights over the New Years period and were made to feel completely welcome and at home.
The rooms were clean and tidy. The host and staff were very friendly and accommodating. We loved the close proximity to town as well as the hiking trails and Clarens Kloof Dam.
Thank you Eddies for a lovely stay! We will definitely be back.

We had a wedding starting at 14h15 and requested nicely to perhaps book in an hour earlier than 14h00. Dawn was extremely rude and blunt and said if we want to we can book the Friday as well, which we didn't want to as we were staying in Bethlehem.
I showed the invoice she e-mailed, stating we had booked the Santa unit. She had someone else booked into that room. While we were at the Wedding, she went in, removed the King Size Bed and replaced it with 2 singles.

Disgusting attitude, zero service and appauling behaviour from Dawn. Never to return!!

Response from Dawn Trevelyan, Owner at Clarens Eddies
Responded 29 Mar 2021
The check in time at Eddies guest house is 2pm. There was a request to check in at 12 o clock. The guest was politely informed that the request for early check in is not possible as the guests that occupied the rooms the previous night checks out at 11am and we had cleaning and maintenance to do. We do allow early check ins but on this day it was not possible. The guest was politely asked to book the night before. When the guest checked in he was extremely rude. He screamed at the owner and was angry. When asked what was wrong with him he said that he was angry because he could not check in at 12 o clock. The guest was booked in the room he paid for. The 2 single beds prepared was what he asked for.
