PURE AND ABSOLUTE BLISS....again.
We raved about this wonderfully quaint and old world establishment when we first visited a year ago...we booked in again after our holiday in Mozambique, only to find nothing had changed... On the contrary... It got better!
The rooms are beautifully yet comfortably furnished, with hotel quality pillows and bedding.
The spacious bathroom and shower en suite.... Fit for the Kardashians!!
Superb. 5 out of 5

Our host Jaco, stayed in contact from booking to check out and was always available to look after our special needs as a family, with 5 being the youngest and 83 the eldest. There are no dining options in town. The lodge restaurant more than compensates with home cooked quality meals.
Rooms were spacious with king size bed, fully stocked bar fridge (no surcharge, normal bar rates) and en suite bathroom.
Shamrock Arms is without a doubt the only place I would consider when visiting Waterval Boven.
Superb. 5 out of 5

Something about the advert and the positive reviews helped us to decide to stay at Shamrock Arms. Not a single part of the advertising was contradicted in real life. The hospitality, friendliness and willingness to please was out of this world. Terry is a genuine down to earth host with such ease and warmth about him. Jaco is an amazing chef and an amazing person going the extra mile to ensure your culinary needs are surpassed and Sue is such a shining gem with a gentle homely air about her.

Now I don't usually rate venues a 5 but the following has to be noted:
1. History and charm of the building adds character and presence to the stay.
2. Food by Jaco was awesome (Simple home cooked meals, more than enough skill to make you feel like you dining at a decent restaurant)
3. The bar has a Irish pub feel with lots of typical pub paraphernalia (fantastic for drinks before or after dinner).
4. Decent value for money
5. Owners who are directly involved in the running of the B&B.
Superb. 5 out of 5

Although frequently visiting Waterval Boven on business, this was my first time to Shamrock Arms on the recommendation from colleagues.
At Shamrock you can be sure of a warm reception, friendly staff, spacious and comfortable rooms as well as exceptional food (hats off to the Chef).
I am sure to return next time I travel to Waterval Boven and surrounds.
The hike up the mountain overlooking Waterval Boven is a must.

The rooms are very accessible with your own bathroom, air conditioning unit, television and your privacy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing, it is not only filling, but is presented with a lot of style and tastes wonderful. It gives you the feeling of a very nice home cooked meal. I would definitely recommend this to any traveler that wants to have a nice restful, and hassle free, stay with beautiful surroundings.

There is not too much to do unless you're a rock climber in town but Shamrock was a good base to explore areas nearby.
Jaco was fantastic! His home-cooked meals were delicious and he definitely went the extra mile to make us feel special.
Fabulous. 4 out of 5

One stay wasn't enough for us so we came back twice more!
Not only does the Shamrock itself have a lot of history, the surrounding areas are filled with amazing history. Jaco/Terry are more than happy to point you in the right direction and give you plenty of other interesting things to do during your stay. It's also a wonderful in between stop on the way to/from Kruger National Park. Dinners and breakfasts prepared by Jaco are delicious and evening drinks and chats in the bar with Terry.
Superb. 5 out of 5
