Adrian is one of the best hosts ever met. Always willing to assist and supply braai fires One of the most beautiful surroundings and well kept facilities. The Self catering accommodation is of high standard and all needed essentials are available.

Well taken care of, nice views, well maintained, the man welcomed us in and showed us around the house is very humble, polite and interesting! No breakfast provided which in my opinion puts this nice place behind its competitors, the gentleman there, his name I forgot, is keen in introducing changes to the place so more happy guests will visit,...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. The guesthouse do not serve any meals and this is mentioned in the quotations we sent out to all our potential guests. The Lavender Room is a tastefully decorated one bedroom unit with coffee/tea making facilities.(coffee/tea/sugar included). This room does not have a kitchen.

Although the room was a bit small I strongly recommend this guest house. Clean, with bath and shower and well placed at the foot of a mountain but within very easy distance to all shops and pubs. The manager was friendly but not intrusive as some can be.

Reception on our arrival was excellent, everything was explained to us about the accommodation, where to go for pleasure and shopping, how to get there. The location was perfect for relaxation and the premises were clean and quiet.

A lot of space, a quiet place, great view, very friendly - perfect for us! We can highly recommend it. Clarens is next to the Golden Gate National Park, which is a wonderful place to do some hikes, to watch Zebras etc.

Loved our stay at Mont Rouge. Riaan our host was very accommodating and helpful. The Lavender room was very comfortable, underfloor heating and electric blanket made it very cosy on the cold evenings. Mont Rouge is just out of the centre of the town so easy to get to all the restaurants and quaint shops. The view of the mountain... More

On our way to Afriski in Lesotho for the weekend, we chanced upon the Mont Rouge for an overnight stay in Clarens before crossing the border in the morning. The proprietor was decidedly welcoming and went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We were provided the Attic room that housed a double bed, a... More

“Stay in the main house. Saw that there was another room in a log cabin of sorts and read a review here which said it was poor value - so cannot comment on that other room. The main house, however, was excellent value at 500 Rand per night.”
