My Wife and I stayed in Jody for a weekend over the Ficksburg Cherry Festival. The accommodation was excellent with everything that we wanted for our stay. The unit was very clean, the pots pans and utensils were of very good quality. It had a full kitchen and a very good sized bathroom. The balconies are small but more than...

We arrived in Clarens without having made any reservation for our overnight (Friday night) stay. We booked through Mountain Odyssey who suggested Brookeside which is situated just behind their offices. As we are pensioners, we did find the price somewhat steep for our pockets but, as it was the last night of our holiday, we decided to spoil ourselves and...

Thank you for a lovely weekend in Jody and Jade cottages! We would definitely recommend it to anybody. You only need to bring your clothes, food and extra wood! Very clean and well planned. Near town but outside to enjoy the peace and quiet of the country side. Safe & Alarm system. Lovely view of the mountain and well maintained...

We wanted a real "winter feel" getaway. Brookeside was very clean and very modern. The kitchen has everything and more that you will need. Bed was a King size with fresh, clean white linen and fresh white towels. The bathroom has underfloor heating, a beautiful Victorian bath and a shower, hotel toiletries available. The bedroom had sliding doors onto the...

Very nice cottage, highly recommended! Well kept, modern and clean. Well stocked kitchen. Remember to bing your own wood for the fireplace. I recommend you reverse into the parking to make it easier to drive up the steep driveway on the way out.

What a pleasant stay we had at Brookeside House during September 2014 for one night only. Clean and modern, in beautiful scenery. Would definitely return not only to Brookeside House but to cleans too.

High quality accommodation in Clarens which is very well appointed with everything you need for a few days in Clarens. Everything worked, was clean and we really felt like it was like being in our own home. We stayed over the June 16 long weekend and it was very cold, however underfloor in the bathroom worked a treat and the...

Had the pleasure of staying at the Cherry Room at Brookside House. Simply brilliant. The room was luxurious and filled with small touches that make all the difference. Would highly recommend to anyone and would gladly return.

I am travelling through the Eastern Free State for business on a regular basis. I tried more than a dozen B&B's, and at last found a home away from home. The rooms are modern and beautiful, the beds are comfy and everything is perfectly clean. A choice of breakfast served in your room, on your own private balcony, or on...
