Wow, wow, wow!!!!!!!!!!!! What an amazing place to stay. I was 'blown away' by the detail in the decor. The ornate fireplace is a must to see. My daughter (19 years) loved the Chamber of Angels, just to chill and relax and enjoy the serenity of the area. The views of the mountains are stunning to say the least. The... More

Absolutely magical experience, exquisite decor, lush feather duvet, unbelievable views, beautiful elevated bathtub, romantic fireplace - the list can go on and on! Last but not least - we opted for additional food included and would recommend this for sure! Exceptional value for money, delicious home cooked meals, made with love and attention to cater for all allergies.

What an excellent experience. The rooms are opulent and luxurious dressed with crisp white linen and fluffy double thick towels. We loved the sunset area and spent hours there sipping on champagne. wow

Really enjoyed a few days of tranquility at the castle. Very well maintained and good attention to detail. Ordered dinner on the Tuesday, the oxtail was delicious. Not suitable if you don't like stairs. Recommended.

I thought I'd be a little bit scared, just me and my husband out in this strange little castle in the middle of nowhere...but it wasn't in the middle of nowhere and I wasn't scared at all! We had expected some sort of terrible road leading down to it but the road was fine, you just had to take it... More

After driving through the mountains in golden gate park we arrived at the entrance to Rapunzel's castle. Two large turrets led us through the gate down the long windy road to the castle. What a site when we saw the castle 🏰 in our view, just like in a fairy tale. There were 4 of us on this trip, me... More

Amazing place to stay and the food was awesome. The view and the sunset corner, the braai place is really one of the best we have ever had. Wimpy was an excellent host and the food for two was more like for three or four people. We will definitely visit the Castle in Clarence again.
