“CLASSY PERFECTION”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

We've stayed at Ashbrook Country Lodge a number of times over the last couple of years and the experience just gets better. It is in our eyes exactly what you would expect when looking for your ideal country getaway - but at affordable rates.

Every item in these self catering units were chosen with care and taste. It is clean, well kept and luxurious. The bedding is of the highest quality - down duvets and underfloor heating will see to making it toasty when it is snowing outside. You also have a wood burning fireplace available if necessary.....

Unless you are lazy like me, it is close enough to the centre of town to walk there.

I can't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting the beautiful Clarens.

On a Friday evening we decided to drive to Clarens for a weekend getaway. The town was very busy and the accommodation was an issue. I contacted Ashbrook Country Lodge and was assisted by Fiona. She was amazing. The lodge was full aside from their VIP suite and she offered it to us at a fantastic rate. We were thrilled with the accommodation! Every detail is considered. The rooms are spacious and beautiful furnished. Everything is absolutely spotless and all needs are catered for. The lodge is just out of the town centre but close enough for a brisk walk. The setting is beautiful with a pretty garden, covered patio and built in braai. The views are stunning. I would definitely recommend Ashbrook to anyone wanting to visit Clarens and I would like to thank Fiona for going the extra mile, her friendly and efficient service......an allround wonderful weekend in the most beautiful town in South Africa.

We spent 4 days at the Ashbrook Country Lodge in one of the studios and the room was spacious with a kitchenette big enough for our convenience. The room faces the Maluti Mountains and one is woken up to a bright mountains and has a spacious balcony for those romantic evenings. The room is equipped with a fireplace, underfloor heating (including the bathroom) and an electric blanket for the chilly nights which creep in at Clarens.
The town itself is the perfect gateway for those seeking a quite and peaceful time away from their daily lives, with small shops and galleries that sell amazing small stuff for one to take back home.

Room Tip: If it just the 2 of you, go for the studio apartments for the intimacy they offer.

What a wonderful experience! The accommodation was spacious, clean and very very pretty. The beds were so comfortable that we slept like kings. Everything was well equipped and we would have stayed a week longer if we could have. I can only say positive things about Ashbrook. Do yourself a favour and spend some time there.

We spent a wonderful long winter weekend at Ashbrook Country Lodge. The accommodation was very spacious, extremely comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped . We spent most evenings beside the fireplace.enjoying a couple of glasses of wine. Sooo relaxing we really needed it.

Clarens offers an abundance of things to do and Ashbrook is well located close to all the best restaurants and galleries.

Room Tip: If you want absolute quiet and total privacy choose Hill Street. Malherbe Street offers wonderful v...
