This is the place to stay in Clarens. Jane, the owner, was extremely helpful from the outset answering any questions we had. She was extremely organised and very accommodating. The ensuite room was clean and spacious, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Parking is safe and secure in a locked courtyard with a security guard present at night. It was...

The room was very comfortable, however that's the only thing I have to say about staying at The Courtyard. I would not stay there again and thought that the host was rather rude. I am aware that Clarens is a small town and it is not always open during the week - but if you run a bed and breakfast...

Very friendly reception. Room neat, modern and with everything we needed. Lovely tonhave the Courdyard Café downstairs. Just what we wanted. Perfect balance between b&b/guesthouse and hotel. Not too personal, but also not as big and impersonal as a hotel. Parking safe and secure. Location perfect - can walk everywhere in Clarens.

We stayed in the two-bedroom cottage for only one night. The cottage had everything we needed and more, the decor is lovely - understated and elegant, but very comfortable, and everything was immaculate. We could have stayed for a week at least! Jane was friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for her. Our breakfast in the Courtyard...

I must say that when I arrived I was a sceptic, only because the place is on the main road but on walking into the courtyard cafe, my mind changed very quickly and I had to remind myself that one must never be too quick to judge. The rooms were absolutely divine and so spacious. Everything was fresh and clean....

We stayed for the weekend. What a lovely atmosphere. The rooms were serviced during the weekend and it was a pleasure just to relax in the room. From the time we arrived until we left Jane was attentive and made sure we were comfortable. Breakfast at the bakery is a must. A very big challenge for my wife and I,...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights as a stop over on our way to KZN and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was very clean and spacious and we had a lovely little balcony overlooking the mountains where we had our breakfast coffee. The owner, Jane, is very friendly. We didn't expect a room this nice...

I have stayed at the Courtyard Cafe now on several business trips one where my family joined me as well and love staying here! The owners Jane and Martin are fantastic and cater to your needs to the point where they remember your likes and dislikes when it comes to food! The bakery they also own is below the rooms...
