Very friendly hostess, who made sure that we have settled in and made us feel very welcome. Cute sandstone buildings which set a beautiful frame for pictures and gave a warm traditional feel to the place, like one would expect from a country house. Cozy fireplace and beautiful garden.

I had the privilege of spending the weekend in Clarens to celebrate a wedding. St Fort is the most memorable setting against the backdrop of mountains and breathtaking scenery, which is where the ceremony was held, providing the most beautiful atmosphere outside.
The reception was perfectly laid out inside with floral decorations and tables set and laid superbly.
I would not hesitate to recommend St Fort Country House for their venue, food, decor and personal service to bring the whole weekends events together giving the guests and hosts great ease and delight.
Such a fun, and memorable wedding weekend.
Thank you!

Last week-end we celebrated my daughters' wedding at St Fort. We were extremely well looked after by Conrad and his team - nothing at all was too much trouble. We greatly appreciate the huge effort that was made to ensure a well managed, very successful wedding day.

Conrad, your experience and attention to detail was so evident that there was never any reason to worry about a single thing. The food was abundant and quality of food excellent - all our guests commented on the meal and how much they had enjoyed it.

The flowers you did for us magnificent.

All we can say is thank you very much indeed.

Conrads' great experience and attention to detail ensured a very successful event, I would not hesitate to recommend St Fort to any other bride looking for a country wedding venue. Very nice.

Our large family enjoyed a weekend at St Fort. We stayed in the main house and reveled in the old world charm of the house and its surrounds. The bedrooms were large and spacious with the kitchen being the family favorite as with its heated floor, large table and seating it provided ample space for 3 large families to relax and catch up as we had all traveled from various parts of the country to be together. The farm house breakfast was yummy and gave us the needed energy to take on Clarens and surrounds. Our hostess and her staff were accommodating and helpful and when we left we all wished that we had had more time to spend at St Fort.

We wanted something simple but beautiful...The flower, cake and food was excellent and everyone went out of their way to make us a comfortable as possible.
I could literally sit back and enjoy my wedding, which was amazingly beautiful!
I will recommend St Fort and Conrad as a coordinator any day!
Thank you all for one of the most special days in our lives!!

FOREVER CLARENS WAS JUST THE BEST !!!!! :)
We stayed in the Family unit and it was 7 STAR - Couldn't wish for any better
Jaco & Myrna are wonderful, Everything was organised and ready for us, communication was a pleasure on whats app. And another BIG bonus is that we parked our car, and only got back into it when our stay ended. Town is a few paces away and CLARENS is just so chilled and relaxed.
Will be back to Forever Clarens For Sure :)

So many great little restaurants and stores to explore! So hard to just pick a favorite. Really enjoyed the Gin tasting at Red Rock as well as the beer tasting at the brewery. Great and friendly service. A great town to explore the surrounding scenery from.

The hikes and the quaint town experience formed a great mix of getting outside while still being able to go into town and browse around.
