Good and home feeling. It has a lovely sitting area with a fire place. There is also a swimming pool which is great especially during the heat of the summer in the western cape. This town is on the R62 which is famous for many reasons, and this town offers great dry fruits and wine. This is a good place...

This is the place you can go to if you want to unwind from the rat race. Jeremy and Sharon makes you feel at home and welcome you with true Karoo hospitality. Have a cup of tea on the stoep and enjoy the stillness of the area. Go for a walk in the tiny town and enjoy the beautiful surroundings...

We slept soundly in a spacious double volume room with double doors opening onto a warm sunny patio with a view of the mountains. I cannot stress the importance of a firm mattress which we found at this B&B. The B&B is in a historic Victorian home spacious and charming with the warmth and hospitality only found in the country...

Jeremy and Sharon have proved to be superb hosts! I just love this little guesthouse in the middle of nowhere! Well almost nowhere! it is nestled in the foothills of the magnificent Swartberg Mountains on the edge of Meiringspoort, a road carved through the Swartberg and a delight to ride through on a motorcycle. Meals are fab and tiny village...

I was told that the house is accessible for a wheelchair...to me accessibility extends beyond the bathroom, so I wasn't prepared for all the steps I saw on arrival around the house! We travelled 6 hours to get there and we booked 6 months in advance, so there was no turning back point and we made do with the lower...

Gee, Fionna - what a pity you didn't mention these things to us during your stay. We would have gladly helped by offering you a ramp for the more shallow stairs at the front door and a lower table and other accessories in your room to make your ablutions easier. As neither you nor Lodewyk mentioned anything when you were...

Klaarstroom is in the middle on nowhere and that is its charm. Come out of Meiringspoort heading towards Beaufort West and it is on your left. Blink and you will miss it. But stop and stay and you will love it. It is a wonderful end to the beautiful journey down Route 62. This is rustic charm at its best....

This place is a beautifully, clearly lovingly restored high-ceilinged, wooden-floored Victorian Klein Karoo farmhouse, complete with a pool & windmill. For anyone who has fond memories of holidaying in the Klein Karoo in the second half of last century (as I have), this place will feel very nostalgic.The hamlet of Klaarstroom is an almost perfectly preserved Victorian village. We had...

We drove down from Jhb to Cape Town and decided to sleep over in Klaarstroom. Not many people know about Klaarstroom, it was my first trip to Klaarstroom as well and I will definitely go again (will also recommend the guest house to our friends and family).

Thank you for being our first Tripadvisor reviewer! As you can tell, we have been a bit slow on the uptake about registering with Tripadvisor but it's been such an easy process that we feel quite silly now that we didn't do it earlier. We love it that our first review really "got" the essence of Klaarstroom as we experience...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Klaarstroom Guest House offers you an authentic country house breakaway in the beautiful, tranquil Karoo. The guest house is one of only 11 houses in the tiny old village of Klaarstroom. Sharon and Jeremy, the owner-managers, live just across the road. Experience old-fashioned hospitality in the lovely old homestead, enjoy home-cooked meals and let yourself relax into the nostalgia of being comforted and content. There are 3 bedrooms in the main house and 2 "waenhuis" (coach-house) rooms. All rooms are spacious and comfortable with their own en-suite bathrooms. There are magnificent views of the majestic Swartberg mountains. The water-wise Karoo garden offers a restful haven for the weary traveller. The swimming pool and enormous old tree are there for cooling down in and chilling out under. ... more   less
