What a wonderful guesthouse! The room was extremely well appointed and thought has been put into providing ultimate comfort. To cater for the winter cold, the room is complete with underfloor heating, fireplace and heater in the bathroom! The lovely patio allows a great view out over the farm and we were served a really fabulous breakfast in the main house! As for the gardens (and general décor) they are an inspiring, visual treat! The guesthouse is very private, with only two rooms and Clarens centre is very close to go and have a meal. At the recommendation of our hostess, we ate at the Highlander and had a very good meal there. We would definitely recommend this guesthouse and the friendly owners and would definitely stay there again.

Attention to detail, highly professional yet extremely homely and welcoming, will stay longer next time. Luxury at its best! Peaceful and truly set in a beautiful garden. The only small negative we have is there are two chalets adjoined, so if you have a noisy neighbour for the duration of your stay, it may not be too good, but otherwise outstanding place and owners are warm and most welcoming.

Awesome facility and fantastic staff. Perfect for a romantic getaway or just a chilled weekend away. The room had everything we needed and the little touches like whispers and cherry in the evening topped off the day

We stayed at this property as we were stuck in a traffic jam on the N3 travelling from Durban to Johannesburg Due to poor internet access we booked this property not realising it was not centrally located in the town of Clarens . The property has a luxurious although very dated decor pallet . The gardens are magnificent and they clearly operate mainly as a wedding venue . Although they charge the prices of high end full service boutiques hotels no effort was a made to offer any form of catering or any food service at all which was surprising considering the price tag and location away from any restaurant and shops A weak excuse was made that they were expecting "Hunters " the next day !! I believe this property should advertise their location and services clearly and decide whether they want to be a " wedding venue " or a "hunting lodge " in which case they should not accept bookings from one night high paying guests if they not prepared to offer a food service nor small breakfast picnic meal for early departing guests .

This was one of the best places we’ve stayed in and we’ve stayed in many around the planet. Elegant, spotless, every need seen to. Stunning gardens situated on a working farm surrounded by beautiful landscape but only 5 minutes drive from Clarens. Philna, the owner, goes out of her way to spoil her guests with little extras like drinks on arrival, chocolates in the room, fresh flowers and an absolutely amazing breakfast. We can’t wait to go back!

What a fantastic experience! We were warmly welcomed by the hosts and the suite was exquisite. Kallie's attention to decor was outstanding. The room was so comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire place, heated floor, electric blankets and heater in the bathroom. The extra touches such a brief check in with Kallie with Sherry and warm savouries was delightful. We enjoyed a quiet breakaway from the hustle and bustle of the city and we would strongly recommend the venue.

We were return visitors to this excellent venue and were not disappointed. Peaceful and scenic surroundings, gracious and attentive hosts, very clean and luxurious accommodation and excellent breakfast. Made use of the barbeque / braai facilities twice and enjoyed private dining on the verandah with amazing views.

Thanks for a great stay - just the breakaway we needed. Rooms are clean and have everything you need and more.
Personally, I working farms and would have liked to have know if we were welcome to walk around and explore. Also where the garden and pool were.
Its also not clear on the description that you share a balcony with the adjoining room (this also wasn't clear) which can be a little intrusive and the two rooms would be best for 2 couples travelling together.
Regardless, it is a beautiful place to escape the hustle and bustle and I would highly recommend it.

This was our second visit after five years. And this time it was even better!

The garden is beautiful. The room is spacious with its lounge area and kitchenette. The balcony has a view over the garden and the mountains can be seen in the distance.

The staff is well trained and Philna, the owner, has the typical South African friendliness and hospitality.

And then there is the breakfast. Oh my - what a treat! Definitely the best breakfast we ever had, and a highlight of our stay.

The farm sounds adds a special "vibe" to the experience. The short dirt road from the main road is smooth and well maintained. Clarens is about 5 km from the farm and it takes 10 minutes to get there.

We will definitely go back. Well done Andes Clarens!
