We all enjoyed our stay at Hillside Cottage. We were a large group including children but the Cottage accommodated us well. We enjoyed the cosy fireplace , well equipped kitchen and cleanliness. The location is great. Walking distance into Clarens and close to the Golden Gate National Park. Thank you to all concerned for a relaxing stay
