The mountain ranges, which surround this leafy haven, boast incredible rainbowed strata of purples and blues; one of a kind formations that perfectly reflect the bright energy of this beautiful region.

From the vibrant hum of the town streets to the stunning views of the Golden Gate National Park, the area surrounding Clarens is always intriguing and exciting.

There is a shop named Voetstoots, a specialized antique store, situated in town which offers a great variety of unique items. What started as a hobby has blossomed into an incredible range of fascinating original pieces, including all kinds of art, woodwork, glassware and tin.

We have our very own specialized silversmith on the premises, providing visitors the opportunity to order a special jewellery item as reminder of pleasure-filled days in the mountains, while the enticing coffee shop will provide guests with a multitude of nostalgic memories.

I was so impressed with Clarens Inn. Katie was so friendly and welcoming, even offered accommodation in a lovely little place, The Beehive, which was exactly what I needed after the shock of having valuables and cash stolen from our "secure" accommodation at Nieu Bethesda. Katie, you are a star! Very affordable, clean and charming, well recommended.

Katy was nice enough to offer me a place to stay under a veranda on short notice. I didn't see the inside of any of the huts but they look very eclectic from the outside and as I understand it each one is different. The best part of this place is actually the common braai/ kitchen area. It makes it so easy to meet other people there and it was a nice atmosphere over mealtimes. Hiking trails start directly from the facility!

review by Laing Lourens

"Best rate for Best wiew"

The best rate in town. And so practical and cosy. Woke up and made coffee. Went outside and 5 Black eagles and looked at the stunning mountain and cliff. I'll go there every time.
