We spent a very relaxing,extremely comfortable 3 nights in Jody's cottage. What a treat! The unit is beautifully decorated, spacious and equiped with everything needed for a visit to Clarens. It is within walking distance of the Square and has gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains from the patio which also overlooks a pretty, well kept garden. We would not...

As a family, We stayed in the two self catering units next to each other, which seemed brand new. Beautiful interior, fantastic design and everything you need. A fireplace inside, great braai area and luxurious rooms and bathrooms. We usually try to stay at different guesthouses when visiting a place for the second time.... But, for our next visit to...

It was a pleasure to have stayed at Brookeside, albeit just for one night. Our room benefited from a wonderful outlook over a delightful garden and a beautiful valley towards the majestic mountains all around. It is clear that real thought has gone into the set-up here. As guests, we thoroughly appreciated the attention to detail and many small touches...

This was my first visit to Clarens - and what an amazing place to stay. I stayed at Brookside House for 8 wonderful days. Beautiful decor in Horeb room - overlloking a beautiful, well kept garden and of course, the glorious mountains of Clarens. The accomodation was always kept immaculately spotless - yet welcoming. From the home made rusks and...

We have recently returned from a trip to South Africa, and while there we visited Clarens, and stayed at Brookeside House. I have to say I completely disagree with the previous review. Maryna is a remarkable host, our room was immaculate, with lots of little touches, like a bottle of sherry, and the home-made 'rusks'. My wife and I stayed...

Lovely room, lovely garden, lovely setting but no personal touch. Breakfast was in Cafe Moulin in town and very good. I'm not sure if you could class this as a B&B but more just a room rental for the night. Clarens as a town is was quiet and picturesque. Fabulous art galleries with some that were affordable.

Brookeside is a gem! - it's ideally located within walking distance of the town square and has wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. Maryna has made sure that all the little "extras" make your stay a treat - from the sherry to flowers to info on surrounding restaurants and activities. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and have all the...

Please do yourself a favour. If you ever visit Clarens in South Africa (well worth it in its own right!) make sure to stay at Brookside House. Maryna the hostess has established an exquisite four star guest house. It is spotlessly clean, luxurious and is the epitomy of attention to detail. Thank you Maryna - Brookside has quickly become our...
