Great host and good food.

The host Chris was great, we were very relaxed after a long drive in. We decided to have supper and it was wonderful. The bed was very comfy.

This authentic, well-preserved and historic old home is a good place for antique enthusiasts to visit - an authentic trip back in time.

Old Fashioned comfort.

Beautiful place in the country not to far from Mthata. Shops within walking distance to get the basic requirements. Spar, Shoprite and Ackerman's available in town.

Comfortable stay in a 1950s time capsule.

We really enjoyed our stay at Clarendon. The guest house is tastefully furnished with antiques. The host, Chris's knowledge of the area was very interesting. The breakfasts were out of the books and we will definitely stay there again when we visit the area.

Gerieflike verblyf in 'n 1950-tydkapsule.

Ons het ons verblyf by Clarendon baie geniet. Die gastehuis is smaakvol gemeubileer met oudhede. Die gasheer, Chris, se kennis van die area was baie interessant. Die ontbyte was uit die boeke en ons sal beslis weer daar oorbly wanneer ons in die area kuier.

Pleasantly surprised with service and hospitality.

Clarendon Guest House is an oasis in a lost town. Safe, neat and clean with all modern amenities. Spacious rooms and beautiful antique décor. Lovely, considerate people at reception. We had a great time and met friendly people.

Aangenaam verras met diens en gasvryheid.

Clarendon Guest House is 'n oase in 'n verlore dorpie. Veilig, netjies en skoon met alle moderne geriewe. Ruim kamers en pragtige antieke dekor. Lieflike, bedagsame mense by ontvangs. Ons het heerlik gekuier en gawe mense ontmoet.

'n Buitengewone belewenis voorsien deur 'n besondere gasheer wat ons altyd sal bybly.

Hier het ons 'n gastehuis met karakter en atmosfeer wat diep in ons menswees geklim het. Hier word spesiale moeite gedoen deur Chris, 'n besondere mens met passie en trots op sy gastehuis. Hy ken die geskiedenis van die omgewing en ontsien geen moeite om sy gaste te help en in te lig nie. Die etes was smaaklik en keurig in 'n besondere eetkamer en eetgerei bedien. Die kamer was baie netjies en spesiaal. Voorwaar 'n voorreg om hier te kon bly vir twee wonderlike dae.

Clarendon Guest House's response

Baie dankie vir die positiewe kommentaar. Dit beteken vir ons baie. Die Theunissens is gaste wat diep in ons harte ingekruip het. Ons sal hulle altyd onthou.

Ons huis ver van die huis!

Ek en 'n vriendin is op 'n ‘road trip’ deur SA. Die geskiedenis van die Clarendon Gastehuis is iets besonders! Oom Chris het ons bederf met lekkerte uit die kombuis, baie raad oor die res van ons reise. Hy't ons selfs die volgende dag gebel om te hoor of ons darem veilig gearriveer het by ons volgende bestemming. Afrikaanse, Suid Afrikaanse gasvryheid!

Pleasant, comfortable, clean, friendly host.

It was like living in a museum. Comfortable rooms, en-suite, clean. Very nice indoor braai area. Friendly host. DSTV in all rooms and we watched the Springbok game. Safe parking area for our vehicle and trailer. Will recommend to friends.

Vriendelik en gasvry.

Dis 'n baie interessante, histories waardevolle gastehuis vol antieke items en meubels. Die gasheer is vriendelik, gasvry en heeltemal gefokus op die gemak en behoeftes van sy gaste. Heerlike slaapplek en lekker boerekos!

Baie interessant en esteties bevredigend.

Ons het lekker geslaap in die pragtige ou geskiedkundige gebou. Die versameling antieke meubels het bygedra tot die lekker ervaring. Die gasheer was behulpsaam en het alles in sy vermoë gedoen om ons verblyf aangenaam te maak.

We were very at home and happy there. Very hospitable boss on the farm.

Food and everything were great. The company is pleasant. The place is beautifully decorated with all the antiques, which we very much enjoyed looking at. Perhaps only bedding and mattresses renewed (just a tip), yet we slept well. Sorry, it's so dry because you can see that beautiful plants are used. The owner was also very friendly that we had to stay a night shorter. After a month we missed home too much.

Ons was baie tuis en gelukkig daar. Baie gasvrye baas op die plaas.

Kos en alles was uiters goed. Die geslskap aangenaam. Die plek is lieflik ingerig met al die oudhede, wat ons baie graag bekyk het en geniet het. Miskien net beddegoed en matrasse hernuwe (maar net ’n wenk), tog het ons lekker geslaap. Jammer dit is so droog, want mens kan sien dat mooi plante is gebruik. Eienaar was ook baie vriendelik dat ons ’n nag korter moes bly. Na ’n maand darem baie huis toe verlang.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A very interesting place.

We received the utmost attention. The owner was full of interesting information. Bed was comfortable, shower was hot. The position on the main road is not ideal and dogs barked all night. We had an excellent meal.

Great hospitality but not very neat and maintenance needs attention.

Stunning decor with period furniture - almost like a museum! Not neat everywhere and needs some maintenance. Great host and delicious breakfast.

Gasvryheid puik, maar netheid en instandhouding kort aandag.

Pragtige dekor met periode meubels, kompleet soos 'n museum. Ongelukkig nie orals netjies en goed instandgehou. Netheid kort aandag. Puik gasheer en heerlike ontbyt.
