We stayed at Saint du Barrys in Clanwilliam for one night on our recent touring holiday through the Western coast of South Africa. The room was clean and well put together. I particularly appreciated the lovely toiletries made locally from rooisbos, all products being most delightful and therapeutic, especially the bath foam. We were a bit disappointed to discover that we had to purchase the bottled water in our room, so we went to the local grocery shop and bought our own at a much more reasonable price. Our breakfast was delicious, served outside in the private courtyard. Our only complaints are that, considering February is the hottest month in South Africa, the pool was not clean or usable; and, yet, we had booked Saint du Barrys because the photos indicated there was a pool. We also found the air conditioner in the room to be very noisy, but otherwise, all was good. Our hostess had recommended making reservations at Reinhold's for dinner, but we took too long to act upon the decision and ended up having dinner at the MOST disappointing Andee's Pub and Restaurant within the Clanwilliam Hotel, but I will review that separately. The African Grey Parrot, Dramian, was most entertaining, so do watch for him if you visit. He had the cat's meow down pat, which confused and frightened the birds that entered his cage to steal food. All in all, we enjoyed our short visit and the hostess most helpful and friendly.
