While I can see some reason for good reports on this establishment, I felt taken advantage of financially. We arrived after two nights of flying to S. A. and needed two nice quiet rooms to recoup. We got those rooms, booked in at 10am (as carefully arranged), stayed that day and then that night, leaving early the next morning before...

I stayed here early February 2015 and was made very welcome and was well taken care of. Personal service, clean, quiet - great. It is like staying in an Italian villa. The area is quiet and safe to walk in, even alone and at night.

Freddy even drove us into Cape Town instead of organising a taxi or other form of transport. To be recommended to anyone who prefers a bit of peace and quiet, but still close...

We spent one more time for 5 nights in Clarence House in Jan. 2012 and were again charmed from the moment we arrived. The B&B house design retains all the natural character of the building with modern and comfortable facilities you would expect from a boutique hotel, great and cosy design, lovely rooms, pool and attentive service. The breakfast choice...

We have travelled the world extensively but no B&B compares to the homely experiene of Clarence House. We first came across Clarence House when our usual B&B was fully booked (we left it too late)......after phoning around we were recommended Clarence House and we have never stayed any where else in the past 4 years. Armin and Freddy are the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Personally run BnB Guesthouse close to Botanical Gardens on the slope of Table Mountain Clarence House is a popular Bed and Breakfast establishment in Upper Claremont in Cape Town. The interior of the guesthouse is stylish and comfortable. The nicely decorated bedrooms have a queen-size bed and are all en-suite with bath and/or shower. Claremont is centrally situated in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. There is only a 15 minutes' drive to the city centre of Cape Town and a 20 minutes' drive to the airport. You may walk easily in a 5 minutes' stroll to Cavendish Square Shopping Centre with many fine restaurants and shops. Claremont is a modern and secure city district which you can explore easily by foot. Botanical Gardens, Table Mountain and Constantia, the oldest vineyards of South Africa, are on your doorsteps. Freddy, Armin and their guest house team are looking personally for your guest's needs. ... more   less
