A warm welcome, a warm room (with electric blankets), a warm fire with sherry and a warm breakfast to kick start the day. Spent three nights in room 9 and had a fantastic time. The owners let welcome you to use the shared facilities as if it were your own home, and you don't have to pay for the firewood. The breakfast is simple but just right. There are warming facilities if you want to warm up leftovers or a mico meal. We will be back.
Ash River was very good value for money with everything you could expect. Rooms were very well equipped and the lodge was pleasant. The location near to the sports stadium and the lower cost township on the weekend meant there was quite a lot of unwanted noise, however.
Perfect stay at a beautiful lodge with excellent service and great breakfast at a very affordable price with friendly and helpful staff within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. I can honestly recommend it to all travelers
Since this was my first visit to Clarens, Ash River Lodge was perfect for us. We felt safe, very comfortable and we felt like we were part of the family. Lallies and her staff were very friendly and accommodating. We had a substantial breakfast every morning which set us up well for the day of exploring Clarens. Thank you Ash River Lodge (oh and especially for the complimentary Sherry!)
