While I can see some reason for good reports on this establishment, I felt taken advantage of financially. We arrived after two nights of flying to S. A. and needed two nice quiet rooms to recoup. We got those rooms, booked in at 10am (as carefully arranged), stayed that day and then that night, leaving early the next morning before... More

I stayed here early February 2015 and was made very welcome and was well taken care of. Personal service, clean, quiet - great. It is like staying in an Italian villa. The area is quiet and safe to walk in, even alone and at night.

Freddy even drove us into Cape Town instead of organising a taxi or other form of transport. To be recommended to anyone who prefers a bit of peace and quiet, but still close... More

We spent one more time for 5 nights in Clarence House in Jan. 2012 and were again charmed from the moment we arrived. The B&B house design retains all the natural character of the building with modern and comfortable facilities you would expect from a boutique hotel, great and cosy design, lovely rooms, pool and attentive service. The breakfast choice... More

We have travelled the world extensively but no B&B compares to the homely experiene of Clarence House. We first came across Clarence House when our usual B&B was fully booked (we left it too late)......after phoning around we were recommended Clarence House and we have never stayed any where else in the past 4 years. Armin and Freddy are the... More
