We have our very own specialized silversmith on premises, providing visitors the opportunity to order a special jewellery item as reminder of pleasure filled days in the mountain. The thrilling demeanor of the Backpackers promises a vivacious yet relaxed environment, boasting amenities to socialize around a hearty fire. Enjoy nice nature hiking trails as we are situated at the foot of the mountain.

We, as a group of friends have spend the New Years weekend at Dondella house and was pleasantly surprised. It is a beautiful house. It was an absolute joy to meet Katy and was welcomed with open arms. We will definitely recommend booking your stay at Clarens Inn. I also need to mention Mr Goosein at Afristay who went out of his way to accommodate us after our initial accommodation fell through. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Mr Goosein at Afristay and Katy at Clarens Inn.

It's a lovely rustic environment at the foot of a stunning mountain. My log cabin was very clean, neat and decorated with some very interesting pieces of furniture. There is everything you need in the cabin. A relaxed, peaceful and friendly atmosphere. I will return just to enjoy the much needed rest I so often need.

What an awesome magical place! We enjoyed our stay at Clarens Inn as usual, we have been there several times before & they never disappoint!
Would recommend Clarens Inn to anybody looking for a cozy, friendly, fun, welcoming experience!!! Katie welcomed us with open arms on Friday night & gave great tips for our outing to the Cherry Festival in Ficksburg. Our stay was too short & looking forward to our next break away to Clarens Inn!
Thank you Katie we will see you again soon!

Peace and quiet at Christmas time. A good Christmas lunch at Gosto restaurant (but beware the R100 cover charge per person). "Eat cheese" for a wonderful breakfast platter. Golden Gate in all its majesty.

It's a quaint little town that knows how to keep tourists happy. Stop in the town square on a weekend for a walk around the market and a cold beer at the brewery.
