All the rooms very tastefully decorated, with the upstairs room amazing views of the surrounding mountains, downstairs rooms very accessible and could accommodate my mother with a mobility impairment with comfort...

We were so pleased to have found Millpond House on Trip Advisor. We stayed in the Blue Room, Merri was kind enough to convert the twin beds into a King Size bed which was very comfortable.

What a surprise in Clarence. A wonderful country house with a pristine garden. The service was great and a the rooms and breakfast excellent but the best was the helpfulness of the friendly staff. Definitely recommended.

The big bathrooms, with underfloor heating, are extremely well appointed with large shower, rolltop bath and more than enough shelving for toiletries. The peaceful garden is beautiful with enough shade to sit under... More

Millpond House is easy to find and is in a quiet location on unpaved road. Car parking is within the grounds. The room was lovely: beautifully decorated, plenty of space and with complimentary tea, coffee and sherry. It overlooked a stunning garden. We walked into town for dinner - bring a torch if you plan to do similar. The breakfasts... More

Lovely homely and very comfortable accommodation, well fitted en suite rooms in quiet country garden setting close to town centre. Highly recommended. Magnificent breakfast with lovely home made orange marmalade, one of the best i have tasted.

Millpond is a beautiful B&B hosted by Merri who has taken much pride in presenting a selection of beautifully decorated rooms. The breakfasts are freshly prepared and really enjoyable (a personal favorite is the freshly baked bran muffins). This is a little gem in Clarens and I will definitely be returning shortly. Thank you for a most pleasant stay Merri!

Merri and Roger ensured we had a lovely stay in Clarens. Millpond house is a relatively quick walk to the town centre. We had lovely room looking out onto a really pretty garden. Recommended for anyone looking for a quiet peaceful place in Clarens

An exceptionally room with all the necessary appointments. Situated in a quiet area in Clarens with a private entrance and secure parking. One of the best B&bs - we will definitely return on our next stop over in Clarens.
