About Clarendon Guest House
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.
