We had a girls weekend and stayed at the Self Catering apartment. The unit was spacious and had all the facilities we needed!! The location is the best, we literally parked our car on Friday and walked all over. Will definitely only stay at Red Mountain House when visiting Clarens.

The room is beautifully decorated with a good bed en comfy chairs. One can see that they are geared up for cold weather with an open fire place and the wood ready to be used next to it. Also a heater in the bathroom. But... when we were there, it was 30+ degrees and there is a ceiling fan but...

We have a wonderful stay in the penthouse. It was clean and the patio was amazing in the afternoons! It is near everything, actually in the middle of it! It is real value for money. .near all the restaurants.

The guesthouse is ideally positioned. Everything happens around you, parking is at the back of the venue. The breakfast is very good and overall a great value for money. Will promote the venue to our friends

Clarens is nestled in the SE corner of Free State with 5 minute access to the Golden Gate National Park. Red Mountain House is one of the high quality B&B's in Clarens. There are many good places to eat and drink, but for me the highlight was the excellent Claren's brewery.

Red Mountain House was our first venue of our three week holiday. Clarens is a lovely little town surrounded by beautiful scenery full of little curio shops and restaurants. Our accommodation was very nice and although breakfast was served down the road this did not prove any problem. Smashing little cafe with own bakery was just outside our venue. We...

We stayed one night in room no. 4, with a view of the mountains. Fantastic! The working fireplace adds a cosy touch. The hotel is on the town square, regardless, our room was very quiet and private. Easy access to shops, bars and the brewery. Breakfast was excellent, with a large variety. Can't fault it at all.
