“Beautiful setting for a chilled holiday”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

We booked out the whole house for a few days in December. It's a beautiful house (10 minutes or so from Clarens on the Fouriesburg road) set in a stunning garden with an amazing view. The rooms are great (if you don't book out the whole house try and get the main suite), the staff are friendly and there are a couple of hiking trails on the farm itself. Highly recommended for a relaxing break away from it all.

What a beautiful place and venue for a wedding. the mountains in the background, the scenery and a well kept farm. The guest house is quaint and pretty and was able to accomodate the whole wedding retinue. Conrad's attention to detail was amazing and between him and his staff they made sure the wedding weekend was as fabulous as we had hoped. There are lovely walks and hiking trails, The place is full of history, Clarens is just 5 kms. away, hikes in the Berg just 30 minutes away and the Fertility cave, 30 kms. away on the Fouriesburg road is definitely worth a visit!

I got married at St Fort in September. It was the perfect setting for a country wedding. Conrad was brilliant in making sure that all the pieces tied up perfectly on the day and everything happened the way we wanted. The service providers he suggested were all excellent. The guest house was the perfect place to stay for the weekend. It had plenty of space for my family and bridesmaids. We were close enough to the venue to pop across when we needed to. The rooms are very comfortable and the patio is great to sit outside and relax and take in the beautiful area. There are also stunning walks on the property that we did.

This is the most beautiful place on earth. We were at St Fort in March and now in August again. In the winter as well as summer this place is stunning. For the adventurer the walkway to the mushroom rock will be unforgettable. My husband did it and the photos speak for itself. The owners Brad and Ernestine , as well as Conrad , are such likable people. The staff are friendly and helpful. Thanks to St Fort and its wonderful people for the unforgettable weekend . Hope to see you all soon.

We as Barefoot Safaris have stayed at B&B St Forts while doing our 3 week mobile safaris quite a few times now. Everything about our experience, as well as clients, was top quality. The rooms for our guests used were pleasant and very comfortable, with all the amenities of a very good quality hotel. The grounds were beautifully maintained and a pleasure to walk through. The service in every part of the facility was always friendly. The breakfasts was delicious and varied. Our many questions were knowledgeably answered and reception staff provided able concierge services, making restaurant reservations and arranging tourist experiences. All around an excellent experience. Thanks to Ernestine and her staff.

We rented the whole house on a self-catering basis for a large family get-together. The house is spacious with well-appointed rooms and suites. It is beautifully situated. We used the barn for communal dinners. The venue was ideal for this purpose.
