Lovely guesthouse and nice gardens close to the centre of Clarens and the start of hiking trails. Great hosts and really lovely breakfast. The location was excellent and service very friendly. Thank you all.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Peace and tanquility looking out onto the gardens. Big spacious room with veranda overlooking the garden. A definite must to stay at whilst visiting Claren's, away from all the crowds in town, but an easy short walk without having to take the car into town ever time - plus you feel sat walking around. Absolutely awesome breakfasts...

The purpose of the trip was to dolt on a loved one, be away from the noise of the city and test out a new camera. Our highlights were how everything we wanted was just around the corner from Sir Henry's. We loved the beautiful rooms, gardens and atmosphere. All in all, Sir Henry's was definitely one of the better...

Nice room and service. The area is perfect - away from the rush Clarens may have - yet close enough. Just add a TV rather to each room. The breakfast was nicely prepared and the service is great. Will visit again!

Sir Henry's was a pleasant stay. Room (No2) spacious and reasonably well appointed, clean and bed comfortable. Hannelie and Frank are friendly and very nice hosts. Although parking is off street, it is very safe in Clarens.

The environment was calm. Lovely rooms and friendly people. We had a good rest, no TV for a changed - we liked the room with no TV. The breakfast was delicious. Please look after your garden. We enjoyed our stay! Definitely coming back.

Lots of pros and cons.... accommodation was large, lots of room, lots of cupboard space, bath and shower, however the furnishings were a little tired and shabby, not comfortable, need updating . Hospitality was excellent and the food well prepared and presented. Overall impression was that the B&B was focessed on ramblers....

The place is nice and in a nice setting, but it is WAY more expensive than what it's worth. At night it gets quite cold and the fireplace is not nearly enough to keep the place warm, in the morning it was just impossible to enter the bathroom because it was freezing. One of the electric blankets did not work,...
