Indulge in beautiful views and sunset over the mountains. Enjoy a tranquil few moments in our garden of almost 2 acres, relax next to the swimming pool, or just listen to the water running over the cobbles.

Breakfast and Dining

Our Gourmet breakfast has become our trade mark, during the week and Saturday morning a gourmet breakfast is served at your table and on Sunday mornings it is a sumptuous buffet breakfast - it has become so popular that even the locals are queuing up.

Dinner will gladly be prepared, and picnic baskets will be provided with a bottle of wine or local champers. Family get together’s and intimate weddings have become popular on the stretched out lawns or dining room.

Activities and Attractions

The bulk of our guests just come to us for a relaxed few days and chill in the tranquil environment, however Clarens has many adventure sport from abseiling to white river rafting or for the not so adventurous crowd, a pot of tennis or 18 holes of golf is at the order of the day.
