Really gorgeous. Much more than we expected. Will most definitely recommend and return Staff not visible really and entering is not the norm but luckily we had a contact number. Signage could improve. We had no hot water in 2 of the bedrooms but not even that could keep us from returning again soon!

Our stay at Clairewood was only for one night, but everything was clean and perfect. The view and the gardens are splendid and well-kept. We will certainly recommend Clairewood to friends and family. Thank you to the owners who gave us directions (late at night I may add) since our gps failed us (LOL)!!!

Beautiful and quiet surroundings - ideal to get away from it all. However the resort is starting to show signs of neglect and general upkeep is not up to standard given the expectations created on the photos.

When we arrived we were greeted by a big fancy gate. We didn't receive the code per e-mail and the gardener on the other side just looked at us like we were aliens. We called and got the code, not a big deal. When we drove onto the premises everything is like a big back yard, a plain and simple...

Clairwood is such a beautiful setting that we were quite happy just sitting on the patio. the chalet was comfortable and well equipped but in need of a little TLC. We loved the supply of logs for the barbecue and that the groundsman cleaned it up for us the next day. The dogs were so friendly and took me for...

Clairwood is beautifully located nestled in the forest with rolling hills and a ravine yet well cared for lawns & gardens. The accommodation is secluded and very comfortable. The treetop walks provide opportunity to take in the breathtaking views.

What an absolutely fantastic sanctuary - and only a five minute drive from Wilderness. Our interaction with everybody involved before, during and after our trip was fast, friendly and professional. Highly recommended.
