“Good for a weekend get away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

Stayed at this establishment for a weekend. Dawn was very welcoming and gave us a pleasant stay. A quick walk to town. The unit June is well equipped and is spacious.

Well worth the price. And the location is ideal.

Bear in mind if you a light sleeper you will hear the church bells.

we arrived at eddies in the pouring rain.Our hostess,Dawn,met us at our car(to pevent us from getting wet) and showed us to our apartment.Wow the kitchen is fully equipped,the rooms and bathrooms are very cosy,the bedding and towels are the best i have ever seen (in SA and abroad)in a sc unit.Dawn advised us where and what to do in and around Clarens.She is a fantastic lady with lots of knowledge about the area,especially the beer tasting which was fun.
We had a fantastic stay and would definitly recommend Eddies to anyone looking for a home away from home.Will be back!!!!!

We planned to stay for one night but stayed one more. It's a very nice place with a awesome Hostess: Dawn. A wonderfull woman that took us up the mountain for a two hour walk that lasted four. Very recommandable. She showed us all kinds of stuff and shared her knowhow on the way and also turned out to be a great conversationist on several subjects. Meeting her was a treat. When around stay at Eddies. And donnot forget the beertasting at Clarens Brewery.

We visited Clarens in Jan 2014, four Brits on a brief weekend break from a business trip to Jo'burg. We had struggled to find any availability in Carens at very short notice for a single nights stay but good fortune smiled on us and Eddie's had a vacant 3 bedroom apartment.
The Anki apartment was clean, comfortable and spacious with a well appointed kitchen and fabulous mountain views from the upstairs balcony.
Everything about the apartment exceeded our expectations but the real star of the show was Dawn, our wonderful host.
Dawn was a great source of information on the local attractions, activities, restaurants and bars.
Don't miss the early morning escorted hike to the top of the mountain, an absolute joy and perfect hangover cure. The views are spectacular from the top and Dawn is the perfect guide.
So, if you are looking for great value, centrally situated accomodation in Clarens, with good hospitality and guided hiking thrown in, visit Dawn at Eddie's and you will not be dissapointed.

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights at Eddies in December 2013. Originally booked for the ADA room.

The room was quaint with basic amenities, very clean. Didn't read the the room description properly so over catered for what equipment was available in the room. The bed was comfortable. After speaking with Dawn about the kitchen requirements and trying to make a plan to suit the plans we had, Dawn was friendly and the most accommodating person you would ever like to meet, We got moved to the JUNE room at no extra cost to ourselves after the booking in that room fell through, which was incredibly generous.

JUNE was much bigger and more comfortable - the kitchen was better equipped for our purposes and the views of the surrounding countryside were breathtaking. We will definitely book that room from the off next time.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for more than affordable self catering accommodation. A great experience!

Room Tip: The upstairs Rooms, JUNE and SANTA are the ones to go for if you want something a little bigger and...

Excellent location for a couple of day's visit to Clarens. With four people, we had the three bedroom appartment with a maginficent view at the Drakensberg mountains from the large balcony. Great value for money with a well equipped kitchen, BBQ, etc. Perfect location for nearby hiking and for day trips to Lesotho and Golden Gate National Park. Don't miss the early morning walks up in the mountain with the owner/manager Dawn.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with the mountain view.

We had a wonderful overnight stay at Eddie's in January 2014 on our way back to Cape Town. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and pretty and had everything we needed. Spectacular view from the upstairs balcony. Secure off-street parking. Just a short walk to the lovely town square. Excellent value for money!
