“Stunning views.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2016

Stunning views and true fairytale setting. The sunset was amazing. The main bedroom is made for royalty. Loved the fine detail and small touches to keep the fairytale alive. Truly enjoyed our stay, a true gem of Clarens.

Wimpie was an absolute gem with attention to every detail on every level. Always helpful and friendly, with on of the most fantasylike surroundibgs and buildings. What an unforgettable getaway! Every detail was catered to and the food was always warm. Wimpie was extremely amenable to any changes is schedule and very accomodating.

Billed as Rapunzels Castle, this was an amazing experience. My kids absolutely loved it, and so did we. It is quaint, and has a lot of stairs (my fitness tracker had me climbing 60 floors a day), but the attention to detail, and the overall experience, was truly magical.

Room Tip: If you can't climb stairs, go somewhere else. If you can, stay here and feel like a 5 yr old aga...

Highly recommended for the young and old. A MUST on your bucket list! Attention to details, furniture, service, garden, finishing are all amazing and breathtaking. Food was so tasty and worth it. I will definitely go back.
