The castle is a place I would visit again. I loved staying there and its moved to my no one location I have traveled to. No detail is left untouched and it's a magical stay from beginning to end. I would recommend this to any couple.

The hosts wil provide meals if required and once again go over-the-top to add... More

It was the most fabulous stay we every experienced... It was a fairytale come true. The views from every room is stunning, beautiful decor and a stone throw away from Clarens. I have never in my whole life experience such quietness. Thanks Clarens Castle

Just remember to close the door because the wood creaking noises at night can be freaky. It will definitely be a place we would visit over and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Castle. The atmosphere and setting is amazing. It was private and comfortable. We loved the views from the Sunset corner and braai area. We will definitely be back.
