“Overnight on the way to Lesotho”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Thank you Carol and Richard!
Lovely B&B with well cared for facilities, cozy rooms and very helpful management. My girlfriend and I stayed over for one night on the wat to Lesotho and it was a very restful experience. Carol and Richard accomodated us the next morning with an early breakfast which was fantastic.
We ate at their restaurant, Gosto, as well and all I can say is - eat there. The steak was great and the meal was good value for money.
We will def be staying at Patcham again.

My girlfriend and I went through to Clarens for the weekend and chose to stay at Patcham place for two nights. What an awesome experience. The atmosphere was great and the lady who runs it, Carol and her partner were very welcoming people. The BnB has an amaizing view that looks directly onto a large mountain and the BnB is located about a 1 minute walk from the restaurants, shops and the local brewery. The service was great, good food, and very clean. Thanks again and will definitely go back!

Room Tip: Book the double room at the back. Gives a good sense of privacy.

Very clean, beautiful place within walking range of everything.
Carol is stunning, vibrant and friendly. Very nice breakfasts. I was with a group of friends, but I am single, I got my own room, but only paid for myself. That is very nice of them. We also ate at their restaurant. Very good food. Will stay there again.

My wife and I with three other friends made a long weekend visiting Clarens... we decided to stay at Patcham's Place. The B&B is very nicely decorated that suits the beauty of the mountain views. Patcham's is also very close to the town centre and we could walk everywhere. Carol & Richard were extremely friendly and we would come back without hesitation - thank you!

This is a perfectly situated B&B in Clarens. We were there in the cold of winter and were kept warm with underfloor heating and electric blankets. Breathtaking views, beautifully decorated with some nice use of funky colours (but not too much!), excellent service, and a full and delicious breakfast. Carol and Richard are great hosts and everyone was very kind. Lovely walks into the town of Clarens and on the nature trail practically on your doorstep. Heartily recommended!

We spend the whole long weekend in Clarens. Patcham Place is such a beautiful, clean place to stay, and a beautiful view! Breakfast each morning was devine! Thanks Carol and Richard for your hospitality, We recommend your place to anyone! Also remember to visit their restaurant in town, Gosto! Best fillet steak we ever had! :-)

My fiance to be and I stayed for 2 or 3 nights in Patcham place in April `14 whilst heading further South to the Drakensburg and South Coast.

Carol and Richard have a beautifully appointed BnB which suits the quaint artistic town perfectly. The breakfast was awesome, being cooked by Richard with Carol's hospitality to match. The location is just off the "main road" so was quiet, yet close enough to walk to virtually all of the town's main areas.

I'd take Patcham place over a hotel a million times over. We could find no fault - The perfect place for a couple to stay in Clarens.

Room Tip: Each room has their own "character" but I'm sure that all are equally good.
