We needed a place to stay for our "Quilt in Clarens" experience and managed to do a booking at the Lake Clarens Guest House through RCI. Even though it is the middle of winter and we expected to freeze, we were pleasantly surprised to find a comfortable room with underfloor heating, electric blankets and a heater in the bathroom/shower, so...

My wife and I had planned a road trip from Durban to Knysna stopping over in Colesberg but my daughter suggested we use her RCI points and make another break in our journey in Clarens where I had not been before. Very glad indeed we did and so glad we could stay at the Lake Clarens Guest house. Everything just... More

We found this accommodation through the Lonely Planet and were very pleased we did. A small facility, well located, with comfortable rooms. Ours opened out onto a patio where we enjoyed a lovely hot breakfast each day, in the sun, even though we were in mid-winter. Our stay was two nights. Our host, Bruce Meyer, suggested a visit to the... More

We had a very comfortable stay in one of the luxury rooms - absolute luxury with choice of bath/shower, heated towel rail, underfloor heating - and lots of personal extras. Bruce and his staff were incredibly hospitable and attentive from when we first arrived until when we left, and very kind in lending us a vehicle to get spares from... More

Great setting alongside the lake. Old world charm with great hospitality. Comfortable overnight stay with fantastic floor heating & electric blanket. The catering was also of exceptional value. Well done to all the staff

Bruce, his wife, their willing, friendly, supportive staff at Lake Clarens Guest House and their adjoining Artichoke Restaurant "tick all the boxes" for visitors to Clarens with their warm hospitality, excellent food, clean comfortable rooms and great views of the dam and mountain. We were travelling with a Rotarian couple visiting from San Diego, California, who too were most impressed... More

We stayed here 2 nights and it was absolutely great! The room is nice with a huge bed and very very soft bedlinnen. There is a Jacuzzi-like bath in the bathroom which is great after a long hike in the mountains. The vie w is one of the best in town, just in front of the mountains, waking up to... More
