From distant view, upon approach.....to first glimpses of homestead and gardens while motoring up the long drive......and later, wandering through those rooms threaded with fascinating and absorbing history... we were drawn in by the beauty of this place. A tray of freshly brewed coffee greeted us upon arrival and it was served in our magnificent bedroom – which offered views,... More

We booked the cottage for a peaceful get away from it all weekend after a hectic Christmas. St Fort couldn't be better - quiet and secluded, just outside of Clarens, with a fantastic view of the mountains and the mushroom plus a lovely garden to walk and chill in. All in all the perfect base to explore Clarens and the... More

We booked out the whole house for a few days in December. It's a beautiful house (10 minutes or so from Clarens on the Fouriesburg road) set in a stunning garden with an amazing view. The rooms are great (if you don't book out the whole house try and get the main suite), the staff are friendly and there are... More

What a beautiful place and venue for a wedding. the mountains in the background, the scenery and a well kept farm. The guest house is quaint and pretty and was able to accomodate the whole wedding retinue. Conrad's attention to detail was amazing and between him and his staff they made sure the wedding weekend was as fabulous as we... More

I got married at St Fort in September. It was the perfect setting for a country wedding. Conrad was brilliant in making sure that all the pieces tied up perfectly on the day and everything happened the way we wanted. The service providers he suggested were all excellent. The guest house was the perfect place to stay for the weekend.... More

This is the most beautiful place on earth. We were at St Fort in March and now in August again. In the winter as well as summer this place is stunning. For the adventurer the walkway to the mushroom rock will be unforgettable. My husband did it and the photos speak for itself. The owners Brad and Ernestine , as... More

We as Barefoot Safaris have stayed at B&B St Forts while doing our 3 week mobile safaris quite a few times now. Everything about our experience, as well as clients, was top quality. The rooms for our guests used were pleasant and very comfortable, with all the amenities of a very good quality hotel. The grounds were beautifully maintained and... More

We rented the whole house on a self-catering basis for a large family get-together. The house is spacious with well-appointed rooms and suites. It is beautifully situated. We used the barn for communal dinners. The venue was ideal for this purpose.

I recently got married at St.Fort and our family stayed in the country house during our visit. The service was excellent and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the hosts. Ernestine and Brad, together with their right hand man, Conrad, are the ideal hosts, ensuring we enjoy the perfect weekend. From late night coffees to early morning breakfasts... More
