The whole experience was exceptional from arrival. The accommodation facilities were excellent. The staff were incredibly friendly, efficient and professional and nothing was an effort on their part. Had a wonderful dinner and breakfast. Thanks again from The Gauteng Central Seniors tennis team (February 2020 )and see you again next year.

Such a wonderful 1 night stay. Perfectly positioned with beautiful views over Clarens and the nature reserve behind. Had a great run in the nature reserve. It was quiet and the grounds of Il Castello were immaculate. Had a wonderful dinner in the Limoncello restaurant. Staff were helpful and accommodating. Room was a good size and we had a lovely little garden to ourselves.

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.
