Description

Clarendon Guest House invites you to spend your night with us in this historical building that was an orphanage for girls until 1962. We offer you Old World elegance with modern facilities. The orphanage was started in 1918 by Reverend MTR Smit when he took in 12 orphaned children. 120 girls were housed here until 1962. A new orphanage was built and in March 1962, they were moved to the new building complex.

The guest house offers 16 comfortable rooms; some have fully equipped kitchens and others share kitchens. Meals can be provided on request and is served in the dining room that has a warm inviting fireplace for those cold winter nights. There is ample parking in front and behind the building.

The area offers a variety of things to do. From skiing in the mountains in winter and hiking trails to enjoy in summer. Explore the rock art and Tractor Museum, or spend a leisurely day on the riverbed fishing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at Clarendon Guest House and highly recommend it to anyone needing accommodation in the area. Chris is a delightful host and the guest house very interesting and quaint.

Our room was clean, comfortable and very well equipped, perfect for an overnight stay after a long trip. Chris Gouws looked after us well and was very generous. The only drawback was the noise from people at the bottle store across the road. We would certainly. recommend Clarendon Guest House.

Baie dankie vir die gasvryheid en dat jy so goed na ons omgesien het. Die dekor en meubels is regtig indrukwekkend en mens kan sien dit is 'n leeftyd se bymekaarmaak van oudhede. Om alles te kroon is die prys net so "oud" soos die meubels! Voorwaar "a step back in time!"Dankie, Riette Buchner

We arrived there on Tuesday late afternoon and was meet by very friendly staff and owner. Our rooms were beautiful and had a lot of antique furniture, this was to gorgeous to sleep in. Our stay was awesome, nothing was a hassle and breakfast the next morning was well worth the price. Beautiful house, beautiful rooms, charming and quaint. I was really blown away with this accommodation. Anyone looking for a reasonable priced place to stay that is fill of history, you need to stay at Clarendon Guest House. We will be returning and so will a friend of mine who travelled with us. In fact she is... see more
