Visiting from the USA and truly enjoyed this quante cottage style B&B. The location was beautifully situated alongside the hillside providing picturesk sunrises. The breakfast was a true South African dish transporting you to life on a South African farm. Truely worth the stay and would certainly be open to returning for another stay

Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Peace and tanquility looking out onto the gardens. Big spacious room with veranda overlooking the garden. A definite must to stay at whilst visiting Claren's, away from all the crowds in town, but an easy short walk without having to take the car into town ever time - plus you feel sat walking around. Absolutely awesome breakfasts...

The purpose of the trip was to dolt on a loved one, be away from the noise of the city and test out a new camera. Our highlights were how everything we wanted was just around the corner from Sir Henry's. We loved the beautiful rooms, gardens and atmosphere. All in all, Sir Henry's was definitely one of the better...

Nice room and service. The area is perfect - away from the rush Clarens may have - yet close enough. Just add a TV rather to each room. The breakfast was nicely prepared and the service is great. Will visit again!

Sir Henry's was a pleasant stay. Room (No2) spacious and reasonably well appointed, clean and bed comfortable. Hannelie and Frank are friendly and very nice hosts. Although parking is off street, it is very safe in Clarens.
