If you want to visit Clarens, this is the place to stay. Very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing accommodation. The food is out of this world. Trish, the hostess, has got to be cordon bleu or gourmet trained - delicious, tasty and always a surprise.The views across the valley to the sandstone hills and beyond to the towering Maluti mountains is mesmerising and invokes an immediate sense of peace. We visited numerous establishments in Clarens to hold an art workshop and although there are many nice places, three of us agreed that The Rose House was head and shoulders above the rest. It is about 28kms out of Clarens along one of the most scenic routes in South Africa.
