My fiancé and I had a lovely night at the Red Mountain House on our way back to Jhb. Very comfortable and beautiful room. Perfectly located in the middle of Clarence close to all the shops and restaurants.

Lovely location walking distance from all shops and restaurants and the square. Friendly staff, neat and cosy rooms. Driving distance from the amazing Golden Gate National park as well. Clarens is a great breakaway.

Wonderful place to spend the weekend. Located int he middle of the action, so to speak. Warm and cosy, delicious breakfasts. Friendly reception. Nice touches added, like the complementary sherry and chocolate. Will definitely stay again!

We really enjoyed our apartment. It was large, warm, had all the amenities, fireplace even! Outdoor fire/brain on a private balcony too! Excellent location right in the square so very easy access to everything. This was a good value and I wish we were able to stay longer than two nights!

A weekend spent in Clarens at the Red mountain House was fantastic. Open fire, underfloor heating we were as snug as a bug in a rug!. Reception staff were awesome even arranging a surprise for my birthday.

This is the second time that my wife and I have stayed at Red Mountain House which is perfectly situated on the square so once you have settled you have access to the town from a well located base. The rooms was cosy with underfloor heating and the bed comfy. We will be back
