“Over night stay Room No 3”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Welcomed after a bike ride, we found a spacious, fresh, and quite room with a view. Everything is of top standard. The breakfast is the best and Carol and Richard really makes you feel at home. Thanks for suggestion Clamentine restuarant, food was great and service with a smile.
Next time hope to do some fishing and stay longer.

I was spoiled this weekend to a romantic get-away to the wonderfull Clarence. In the cold winters weather we were warmly welcomed by Carol and Richard from the exquisite B&B, Patcham Place.Together with the picturesque interior, linnen smelling of roses, soft warm bed with electric blanket, dstv and underfloor heating the experience was perflectly rounded off with sherry in each room to warm up after a long day of shopping, walking and enjoying the full Clarence experience. Breakfast was ready and waiting to fuel up for the day awaiting us.
Thank you so much Carol and Richard for greeting us as friends and help making our weekend an unforgetable one.

Patcham place is an absolute classic. A perfect blend of cosy and class. The rooms are absolutely spotless , roomy and recently redecorated. Its also close to the center of all the activity, shops and eateries. A definite yes in Clarens.

We had been to Clarens before and the accommodation was always vert good. However, Patcham Place is in a league of its own. Our room had a wonderful view onto the mountains, it was spacious and provided us with everything we needed. My wife is still talking about the wonderful breakfasts. The location is perfect and really just around the corner from the centre of town and the restaurants. Parking is also very safe - just across the road from the very neat police station. The best of all are the friendly hosts, Carol and Richard.

We stayed 2 nights on our month touring trip of South Africa. We were 2 couples travelling together and arrived after a long day of driving through spectacular scenery. The warm welcome by Richard was the beginning of a delightful stay in a lovely town. Our bedroom was beautiful and such a comfortable bed! Breakfasts were delicious and generous. Carol and Richard are thoughtful hosts who provide the special touches which add graciousness for travellers. We appreciated their suggestions for places to eat and things to do. An additional bonus was having our laundry done and ironed. Our clothes hadn't looked that crisp in a long time.

We had a very spacious room with kitchen and great mountain views (room 4). Our host, Carol, was a delightful woman with a real sense of joie de vivre, and was very keen to assist with her local knowledge of Clarens. This is a delightful place to stay and extremely safe, as the police station is virtually across the road. Quiet, tranquil setting with magnificent views.

My sister and me drove up from Durban to Johannesburg. Many people advised us to drive through the Golden Gates National park and to visit Clarens. The first night we stayed in a nice B&B but couldn't stay for the rest of the weekend. Our host pointed out 'Patcham Place' and that's where we ended up... Wonderful place, beautiful location, welcoming hosts, very nice place with tastefully decorated rooms - rooms with a view - tasty breakfast... Shall i go on??? Thank you Carol and Richard for making our stay so enjoyable - you are great people doing a great job!
We enjoyed our stay and if we are in the neighbourhood again we'll def be back !! All the best! And remember - you have a bed in Belgium too if you ever come over ;o)
