“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Patcham Place in Clarens is a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle from the big city life. It was our return visit to this quaint yet elegantly styled bed and breakfast. Carol and Richard are very warm and welcoming which makes you feel at home straight away. The rooms are neat, well-presented and I love the attention to small detail which sometimes is overlooked:) It is situated very close to the restaurants and gallery so you in walking distance to where you want to be. The breakfast menu is delicious and I love that they have a little form that you fill out the previous night as to what you want (attention to detail). Thanks Carol and Richard for a lovely stay! From Chris and Reinhild, the newlyweds:)

Room Tip: Great rooms! I loved the one with the small kitchenette!

Carol and Richard have thought of everything, you have your own front door, the view from your balcony is wonderful, the location is quiet yet only minutes walk from the restaurants and shops. And the breakfasts are terrific, especially the fresh fruit we had, and eggs fried, boiled or poached to perfection and offered soft, medium or hard! No hesitation in recommending to anyone.

The attention to detail and service is superb and create a relaxing environment and a feeling of 'I want to stay longer'. Situated in town centre, make it easy to walk to the local shops, restaurants and local brewery for a free beer tasting. Staying over for one night on a bussiness trip felt like a mini holiday and I will definately come back. Jaco

Fabulous place to stay - clean, neat, airy and beautifully decorated. Carol and Richard run a great B n B and have just opened a restaurant as well - great Portuguese style food. So all in all 10 out of 10 and would def return!

Room Tip: We had the blue room and loved it!

Caron and Richard provide a wonderful place to stay within a few minutes of the centre of Clarens. We had a large clean room with a balcony and the bedding was spotless. The breakfast was perfect and we look forward to returning again; for a fourth visit.

I had the privilege of staying at Patcham Place on my last night of a 6000km bike trip around South Africa.

My room was clean, neat and more than what I expected. The owners were friendly and made me feel welcome. I got a room with a view if the mountain next to Clarens.

Breakfast was made to order and exactly what I wanted.

The location makes it perfect for walking anywhere in Clarens.

I will be returning to Patcham Place on my next visit to Clarens and that will be soon.
