We stayed at Ashbrook for a few days with my family. Fiona was so amazingly accommodating. The unit was clean and neat. Ashbrook is close to the town and this was very convenient for us to walk to the restaurants and different shops anytime of the day. I would definitely recommend Ashbrook to anyone visiting Clarens.

The settings get and views are breathtaking and contained everything needed for self catering. Close proximity to the town centre and impeccably cleaned. The bed was uncomfortable, half the lights didn't work and the bathroom Basin tap was loose...shows a bit behind on maintenance. Overall a great place to spend a few nights but they can do better.

We've been coming here for a few years now, and never disappointed. It's in town, and a 5 minute stroll to the square and the main entertainments and restaurants. It's not what I'd call luxurious, but the rooms are huge, the furnishings comfortable and they are adequately equipped, There is no lock up or under cover parking, but there is...

The accommodation was very comfortable, the reception and all the help that Fiona gave us on arrival was superb. It is easy walking distance from the downtown, but also very quiet. Our stay there motivated us to think about returning soon

We stayed in the Beethoven Lodge from 14-18 Dec 2016. The location is quiet and private and we were welcomed by Fiona on arrival. Unfortunately I only checked afterwards and realised that the 4-star grading (from the Tourism Grading Council) that is displayed at the front door and on some websites, is not current. The mattress is old and in...

Thanks for your comments on our Beethoven Lodge. About 6 years ago we opted for the Portfolio Collection rating rather than the TGCSA grading, so apologies if any old materials gave you the impression that Ashbrook Country Lodge is a member of the TGCSA. We have investigated the issues you raise and are taking steps to touch up and replace...

Very friendly host, Fiona. She waited for us as out exit was a bit delayed. spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen (please pack an iron). It's worth a return. There is no wifi in the rooms but most restaurants have around the town area which is around the corner. Beautiful clear nights for star gazing. It's very private. Perfect weekend gateway,...
