About Elephant River Guest House

Set in a large garden with a swimming pool in Clanwilliam, Elephant River Guest House offers a sense of the past mingled with modern comforts and wonderful country hospitality. Charmingly decorated with an artist's sensibility, the friendly house and owners welcome you into a relaxed atmosphere where you will feel instantly at home.

The four comfortable garden chalets have double brass beds and twin beds. All units have en-suite bathrooms with showers, mosquito nets, fridges, TVs, coffee and tea facilities, fans, heaters and comforters. They lead out to a generous veranda and a leafy garden and swimming pool. There is safe off-street parking.

Take lovely walks through the old part of town and head into the mountains or coast. The coast is 64 km away for pristine coastlines, wonderful seafood and birdwatching. Elephant River Guest House is within easy walking distance of local shops and restaurants. Beauty therapy, self-defence lessons, aerobics classes and Pilates can all be arranged for the active at an extra fee. You may rather sit and relax under the trees while admiring the mountains or stars as you are on holiday after all.

As a one night stopover only. It's a bit rundown and in a poor position. Georgia is quite accommodating though.

We stayed here for one night. The hostess was very pleasant and helpful in suggesting local restaurants. We had had a long drive from Namibia so she gave us a welcome cold beer when we arrived! The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast next morning was delicious. Good value for money.

Agréable chalet et une propriétaire très gentille qui nous a aidés, fourni le nécessaire pour utiliser le barbecue, et a généreusement amélioré notre repas en nous offrant du poulet cuisiné !

The hospitality was great. Breakfast was a meal to anticipate with excitement. Georgia is a great hostess. The third star was definitely for the breakfast!
