We traveled as a family of 5 and 2 large dogs, and our stay at San Rock main house was a truly memorable experience for us.

We stayed for 3 nights in winter. The underfloor heating and electric blankets in the rooms were fantastic at keeping us warm. Also really enjoyed the fireplace in the living room and dining room area.

Our dogs loved exploring the large beautiful garden. It was a well-maintained lawn that we could picnic and do yoga on. The kitchen had all the amenities we needed and the dining area was large and comfortable for 8 people. The location was good, it’s a short drive to the Clarens town square and within a reasonable walking distance to a short hike nearby.

The tables were a bit dusty when we arrived, and the road to the property (not just to the property though but the whole area) was a bit bumpy and not maintained. But other than that, we had an excellent time and really enjoyed our stay with San Rock.

Lots of space. Very clean and neat. Service was excellent and friendly. Brought my dog along and he seemed to enjoy the lovely garden to run around. This guesthouse is a walking distance away from the start of the hiking trails which is a bonus. The town is also within walking distance.
The house has all the amenities for the family. No need to worry about anything. This is why I say this a home away from home.

We had an amazing Christmas! We booked the entire property for the duration of our stay at San Rock Guesthouse. We had our family with us and the accommodation was amazing! Everything was exactly what we saw on the web and having the whole family there we found the space to be very spacious and for those who wanted a afternoon nap or some privacy it woked extreamly well. A family holiday but also with the space you need to just have some alone and relaxing time too. We highly recommend San Rock Guesthouse!

San Rock can be highly commended on their service and help in accommodating us at such short notice. The guest house was perfect, quiet, clean, modern and private - despite two other accommodation units on the premises. As a self catering option, this was home away from home.

We stayed at the san rock (the loft). The room was very clean and the lights were on. We had a staff member waiting for us to welcome us. We had booked a breakfast and spa treatment at the main hotel (Il Castelo). They were waiting for us, guide us to our table and guided us from the info desk to the spa. The spa was amazing and worth every penny.

The personnel is fantastic, and they made us feel like royalty. They even brought us amazing delicious cookies the evening. The only thing that was not so perfect was one light switch that was not working. the rooms was fantastic, clean with a beautiful atmosphere

We had a super weekend in Clarens. The accommodation was superb! The staff were so friendly and assisted us immediately. We did the Taste of Clarens and were treated as royalty. We will come back for sure.

We booked a 2 day family getaway at San Rock, and wished we could have stayed longer in this beautiful house. Situated in the Clarens suburb and close enough to get a beautiful view of the mountains and a 5 minute drive away from the town. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Carol and pleasantly surprised by the unique layout of the house, which can comfortably accommodate a family of 8 with the guest suite. This is a beautiful house to spend time in Clarens and we were so impressed by what it had to offer. The house was well kept and furnished, and provided us with a welcome bottle of wine, an ice making machine and Nespresso machine which is rare to find at a self catering place. We enjoyed our stay!

We stayed at the Loft a few times before and were charmed by it. Unfortunately the maintenance is poor. For such a beautiful space with a lovely view, it is in need of some updating and renewing. Carpets are stained and old. The geiser kept pouring/dripping all day and all night, just outside the wall were your bed stands inside. So sleep was not comfortable. Also the first night my husbands bed (twins) collapsed. They apologised with a bottle of wine and replaced the bed the next day. The toilet has poor flushing. All in all, we thought this was THE place to go if we went as a couple.....but I will look elsewhere. It is expensive accommodation, and I expected more upkeep and maintenance for that price. Very disappointing :-(
