... Stay at Eddies.
We had a wonderful stay at Eddie's. It's ideally situated, being a short walk from the town. Dawn is a fantastic host, in that she was willing to take us on walks, and help us out with any information we needed regarding the town.
We highly recommend Eddies to anybody that stays in Clarens.

We had an amazing experience. Went there for our anniversary. Dawn, the owner, was kind enough to upgrade us to a bigger unit at no extra charge. The place is extremely neat and well maintained. Brilliant and affordable cleaning service. Amazing views of the mountains. Free daily walks up the mountain. Could not have asked for better accommodation.
Fantastic B&B, lovely owner Zoe Raffray, South Africa

After booing this accommodation based solely on the reviews I read, I have to say I agree with everyone who says it is a gem in Clarens. We arrived on the Friday afternoon and were greeted by Dawn the owner. She is absolutely lovely, knows everything there is to know about the do's and don’ts of Clarens and is willing to give any of her guests’ advice. We stayed in the unit called Santa: very cosy with a fireplace, heated blankets and our own little kitchenette. And for only R30 a day the room gets cleaned, dishes done, beds made etc. We were really impressed with the quality of the room; the bedding was lovely as was the mattress. We will most definitely consider Eddie's again if we return to Clarens.

Accommordation was superb. Very clean and I liked the fact that the staff goes an extra mile, like washing and ironing clothes without any extra charge. Dawn(owner) took us for a mountain walk of which I think was very adventurerous for "Gautengers" and has taught us a lesson that no matter how hard the climbing can be, ones you have reached your peak, the rest will just be smooth. Thank you Dawn.
Thank you Paul herbst, South Africa

New, nicely decorated, neat, friendly people. However we tried to change booking from 12 to 8 people but were refused and we had to settle the full bill for 12 people only to hear that accomodation was desperately needed for the weekend (weddings etc). We could have saved some money and others could have had accomodation if only the request to change the booking could have been granted. It is recommended that the policy on changing bookings be reviewed.

My family spent one night at Eddie's and absolutely loved it there! It was more than what we have expected and we're really glad that we chose Eddie's. We stayed at the unit called June. It is a two bedroom, self-catering unit. The unit is well equipped, cozy, clean and homey. The view from the units (in particular June and Santa) is spectacular! Overlooking the Maluti Mountains. The owner, Dawn, welcomed us as we arrived. She is such a warm, friendly person and quite an artist too - beautiful paintings inside the unit are painted by her. We definitely recommend Eddie's to anyone coming to Clarens. Can't wait to plan our next trip to Clarens and looking forward to stay at Eddies again!

The accommodation was clean, well appointed, comfortable and well equipped for self-catering. The establishment is within easy walking distance of the town center and restaurants. The upstairs apartments have stunning views of the mountains. Our stay was enjoyable and we recommend Eddies without reservations.

Vier van ons, twee afgetrede pare, het twee aande hier oorgebly. Dit was 'n baie lekker en genotvolle ondervinding.
Alles was pragtig skoon en netjies; Dawn was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ons kan Eddie's sonder voorbehoud aanbeveel.
Four of us, two retired couples, stayed here for two nights. It was a very nice and enjoyable experience. Everything was beautifully clean and neat; Dawn was very friendly and helpful. We can recommend Eddies without reservation.

We enjoyed our stay. Dawn was very friendly and helpful. The unit itself was very cosy. It was also nice that they cleaned the unit every day. We would refer other people to her.

My wife and I stayed in the June unit which has a great view. Though basic, the unit was clean and had everything we needed. It's also just a short walk to the town centre, so it was convenient while also being quiet. And Dawn's price was excellent. We had another quote for the same nine days that cost R9000 more - needless to say we didn't accept it. Dawn was away for most of the time but stand-ins Francois and Jan looked after us very well. (And as a footnote, if you are taken ill in Clarens (which my wife was), the Hoogland Medi-Clinic in Bethlehem deserves the highest praise. It's like hospitals used to be!)
Enjoyable B&B Pauline Prinsloo, South Africa

Clarens is a very cosy town, and Eddies was comfortable, hosts, friendly and accommodating and helpful - really had a good stay even though shorter than anticipated. Just one small suggestion - the small units could do with a fan or air-con - it was very hot inside the unit as it was a scorcher of a day until later the evening when it cooled off with the rain.

Accommodation was ideal for what we needed as we were only travelling through. Reception on arrival was great and settling in was fine. Do hope to stay longer next time.

We got married in Clarens Methodist Church 7 years ago. It is tradition to visit Clarens since then for our aniversary annually. We (two adults and two kids) managed to book ANKI at Eddies during the weekend of 30 August -1 September 2010. This was without doubt our best experience of Clarens. The main contributing factor was the luxurious facilities of Anki with her spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen, fire place, the best view of the Maluti's from the stoep - where we shared as family good memories while we enjoyed good wine and the tranquility of this precious pearl of the Free State. The overall cleanliness of the unit, the secure parking area, the fact that we were at walking distance from the major shops, restaurants and attractions added to our good memories of our stay. One thing is sure, we will visit Clarens again and we will ensure that we stay next time again at Eddies.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!!! Anonymous, South Africa
