About Clanwilliam Hotel

Ensconced in the magical Olifants River Valley, Clanwilliam Hotel is situated off the beaten track. Only two hours’ drive from Cape Town, the hotel offers air-conditioned rooms, a swimming pool and secure parking. When you enter Clanwilliam Hotel, it is like coming home, where guests are still welcomed with true country hospitality.Founded in 1732, the picturesque Cape Dutch homestead of Clanwilliam is one of the 10 oldest towns in the country. Tucked away at the foot of the Cederberg Mountains and perched on one of the countries favourite dams, its rich settler history offers a central location for a variety of attractions, from flower viewing to bushman art and a range of water sports. Clanwilliam is also famous for growing and cultivating rooibos tea, and for its original leather ‘veldskoene’ factory.Leipoldt's Cellar Restaurant is situated on the premises and offers lovely farm breakfasts. We are also situated within walking distance from all local restaurants. Clanwilliam Hotel is a five-minute drive from the spectacular 18 km-long Clanwilliam Dam, where visitors can partake in a range of water sports the likes of waterskiing, wake-boarding, parasailing and angling. Alternatively, nature enthusiasts can enjoy sweeping vistas of flowerscapes in the nearby Ramskop Nature Reserve which boasts over 200 indigenous species of wild flowers.Hikers and anthropologists can peruse Bushman rock paintings, visit the local planetarium or Pakhuis Pass, just outside of town, which boasts magnificent landscapes and is the gateway to Wupperthal – a Moravian mission village.

                      To be fair, we did change our room to the ground floor at the last minute. The room was musty and damp. A leaking air conditioner outside was seeping into our room. The toilet did not flush. My husband had to fix it each time it was used. It was convenient and we enjoyed the pub upstairs from the KFC.

                      Lekker groot familiekamer gewees. Hotel aan buitekant kan doen met lagie verf en swembad en braaigeriewe kan bietjie opgeknap word. Restaurant was baie oulik en lekker ontbyt gewees. Ontbyt was nie so warm nie alhoewel dit op warm plate was.

                      The rooms were good as was the pool area.Look at upgrading the braai facilities.
