Perfect location. Lovely modern room and en suite. Only down side was the noise from the fridges going on & off during night. Jane said this will be sorted out later. If not for that we would have giving 5* to all.

A modern, clean and spacious room was just perfect for us. Jane is really nice and made our stay very enjoyable.

Wow, this is such an amazing place to stay with prime location on the square and surprisingly not noisy. Just not having to search for parking on the square is enough to stay here. The rooms are extremely clean, stunningly modern fittings and in winter surprisingly extremely warm. The smells from the bakery may wake you in the morning which is something no one can complain about. We only got to test out the breakfast which was just the best so the lunches must be great. Thank you for being so accommodating and this is now our preferred place to stay when visiting Clarens from now on.

We stayed there for a long weekend and had a good time.  Rooms are nice with open and the fireplace helps with the cold during winter.  Cafe downstairs serves a good breakfast with a nice selection.Would stay here again.

Lovely place and Jane is very helpful.A little noisy being on a main rd but delighful otherwise.Didn't get the a chance to sample the lunch or dinner menu as we had to leave early but smelled and looked great.A little disappointed we didn't get any refund for not staying the full 3 nights having to leave due to family emergency so will not pay in full  again before I see the establishments referred by Safari.
