Absolutely beautiful stay at Il Castello in Clarens. Magnificent Setting and hotel, and staff that went the extra mile. Food was brilliant and we loved every second. Perfect for a weekend getaway. Highly recommended.

I booked in for an engagement weekend in January and wow did the team impress. As difficult as it is to plan and figure things out online, the Il Castello team lead by Brenda took charge and knocked it out the park. The venue is world class, the service and staff are top class and overall, it was a 10/10 for me. The restaurant and spa both have awesome offerings and they are willing to accommodate you as best as possible. A very special place with special memories that we will definitely be going back to. We booked the Mona Lisa room that has it's own roof top area overlooking the property and Clarence. You certainly won't go wrong booking with them. Thanks so much Il Castello team for making our special weekend even more special!

Room tip: If weather allows, dinner on the rooftop section of the restaurant is a must. The spa is also really good.

This is my second stay at Il Castello and the hotel only gets better. I'm certain I will always use this hita s my base when I go to Clarens.

The staff are exceptional, the suites are luxurious, the breakfast and any food from the hotel restaurant is divine and the views from the hotel are truly magnificent.
