We had a super stay there for our 18th honeymoon (wedding anniversary getaway). Location, accommodation, service, and overall quality was all just terrific. I have no problem in recommending this to anyone.

After phoning about 6 B&B's and finding them all fully booked we were fortunate to find accomodation at Periwnkle Blue Guesthouse in Clarens... and I am so thankful we did!!
What a charming, quaint and beautiful guest house! Beautiful gardens, stunning view and the decor in our Christmas Rose room was just that - a rose theme beautifully furnished with great attention to detail. The bathroom was also beautifully decorated, spotlesly clean with white fluffy dressing gowns for guests to use. I loved the special touches of complimentary sherry, bottled water, tea, coffee, hot choclate and homemade rusks in our room. We felt spoilt and special with the personal service we received from Sanmarie. We had our continental breakfast served outside our bedroom on the patio, set up beautifully by Sanmarie.
The guesthouse is on the outskirts but within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants so there is no need to use your car.
I have only high praise for this guest house and when we return to Clarens again we will certainly stay there!!

Room Tip: The Christmas Rose room is beautifully decorated and has a stunning view of the mountain.

This guesthouse is located just on the fringe of the town of Clarens. The decor is really classy and tasteful, the garden is well kept and beautiful and the breakfast served to you in the morning is scrumptious. Sanmarie played us some lovely music while we ate our breakfast and made us feel so welcome. She was also willing to wait up for us, as we arrived late from Joburg. Overall, great value for money.

We stayed here in the 'rose room' on our honeymoon in March 2010.
The guesthouse took my breath away! Attention to detail and gorgeous interior design were of a standard that I have never experienced before, absolutely gorgeous! The lovely hostess made us feel more than welcome and we felt embraced by her friendly caring nature. Will definitely keep on recommending this travel treasure wherever I go in the world

On a recent trip to South Africa, we made a two-night stopover in Clarens on our way to the Drakensberg. Firstly, the village of Clarens, the nearby Maluti mountains and Golden Gate Highland National Park are overlooked gems and I would happily spend several days there. The Drakensberg mountains are only a few hours around the corner, but are very different in feel and deserve separate treatment.

We didn't stay at Periwinkle Blue but lucked out at another place in town that is very strong on self-promotion but which we hated from the start (the place and the owner). Prompted by our intense dislike of "Fawlty Towers", we asked some very nice German tourists we met where they were staying and they raved about their accommodation, which turned out to be Periwinkle Blue.

We went along and liked the place and the lady running it from the start. You can get some idea of it from here (http://clarenstourism.co.za/periwinkle/) but that doesn't really do justice to it. The place has very good views, is very attractively furnished and has a very comfortable, relaxing feel to it. We would very happily go back to Clarens for a longer stay and would most certainly want to stay at Periwinkle Blue. I think it's one of the nicest B&Bs I've seen.

It is in a quiet side street but is within easy walking distance of the town centre, so drinking and driving is not a worry. Some of the other recommended B&Bs were a little further out and you would need to have a designated driver.
