Bruce and his team are dedicated to making you feel like a guest of honor. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, you are afforded your privacy and when visiting for breakfast or just passing by everyone you meet has a sincere smile. Imagine my surprise when I woke up to check out and found that in the early morning hours my car had been washed to take the journey home.

Out stay at Lake Clarens can only be rated as ‘just OK”. Nothing really to complain about and also no “WOW” to rave about. The room was clean and comfortable, but the decor definitely needs a re-vamp and some feminine touch. The breakfast was good, but the staff serving it need serious training and finishing touch. Overall I would say is was a bit below average experience,…I expected more.

We stayed in Room 5 which faces the garden. It was comfortable with all you need, including bath and shower. If I had to complain, it would be about the TV channels, they could include a sport channel but overall it was very comfortable; within walking distance to the square where everything happens. The breakfast was superb and sitting outside made it so much more special with the awesome views and great outdoorsy feel.Next time though I will request a room in the guest house as the views will be superb.

The breakfast was what made the experience ultimate, as for the rest, it was mediocre. The main lights kept tripping and even when checking in, it was not hospitable at all - having the security guard show us in but not dressed approrpiately nor offering us the delight that we were looking for. Friendliness goes a long way. The first impression upon arriving set in disappointments. I have stayed in better in Balito for less, so I would have expected something more remarkable given the existing reviews that were posted. Even upon checking-out and leaving, there was just a lack of friendliness...

Not quite sure how the 4 star grading was achieved but 2 star is more applicable.  Hygiene standards poor - one of our rooms contained the previous guest's undergarment and hair on the bed linen..  TV not working.  Noisy live music in the pub next door until late.  Would not return.
