Lieflike oornagverblyf in die Midlands.

Netjies en skoon verblyf met 'n wonderlike uitsig oor die woud en rivier.

Netjiese akkommodasie, vriendelike ontvangs.

'n Onderdak paadjie na die braaiarea en sitkamer sal goed wees wanneer dit reën. My kinders het in Nr. 4 geslaap en die personeel, wie se kamers aan die kamer grens het baie geraas. Dit het baie gereën en modder was dik in paadjie langs kamer 8 af. Voorstel dat paadjie met gravel uitgevoer word.

Neat accommodation, friendly reception.

A covered path to the braai area and lounge would be good when it rains. My children lived in No. 4 slept and the staff, whose rooms adjoined the room made a lot of noise. It rained a lot and mud was thick in the path next to room 8. Suggest that the path be made with gravel.

Mooi area, goed vir 'n ekonomiese oornag.

Die plek is rustig en skoon. Pak jou eie seep, haardroër, handoek, water en enige ander benodighede vir die aand. Dit is 'n entjie se loop, so wees voorbereid wanneer jy met bejaardes toer. Die plek is 'n goeie keuse as jy op 'n budget travel maar verwag net die nodige. Gasheer is vriendelik en hulpvaardig.

Nice area, good for an economical overnight stay.

The place is quiet and clean. Pack your own soap, hair dryer, towel, water and any other necessities for the evening. It's a bit of a walk, so be prepared when touring with the elderly. The place is a good choice if you travel on a budget but only expect the necessary. Host is friendly and helpful.

Baie mooi natuur en 'n rustige kuier langs die rivier.

Ons was net na 12:00 daar en is baie vriendelik ontvang en dadelik na ons kamers geneem ten spyte daarvan dat ons te vroeg daar aangekom het. Het dit baie waardeer.

Great venue to explore the Midlands.

Location is great, beautiful property right next to the Lions River. The communal kitchen/games room is great to relax in and has everything you need. The rooms are big and clean and perfect for a weekend getaway. The area has so many great spots to visit or just relax and have a beer next to the river.

Absoluut puik!

Dit was voorwaar baie aangenaam! Puik ligging reg langs Lionsrivier waar jy heerlik kan sit en ontspan. Die eienaar, Dave, was werklik uiters behulpsaam en vriendelik en het tot ons klein maltesie, Gabby, opgepas terwyl ons uit was vir funksie. Ons sal beslis weer besoek, ons nuwe tuiste in die Midlands! Nogmaals baie dankie Dave!

Filthy, run down and mismanaged. Nothing of what you would expect from a standard accommodation establishment.

Did not deliver what was advertised. Filthy dirty. Badly maintained. Bedding was poor quality and insufficient. Facilities offered are minimal and filthy. More suited to backpacking than a getaway.

Beautiful setting, terrible customer service.

We arranged an early check in with the owner beforehand and on arrival (our arrival was delayed by the weather) the rooms were not ready. It was raining and we were not directed as to where to wait or accommodated, we had to wait in a communal area that was filthy dirty with broken glass and bottles all over from a previous function. The cleaners advised us that the room would be ready in 10 - 15 min but almost an hour later they were still in and out the rooms. I spoke to the owner, Dave, who was very unaccommodating and all he said was " he will offer us a refund and we can find another place". This is unacceptable with a family with a small child, in the rain at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon. We understand that there was a delay from the previous night's function, however the problem was more the attitude of the owner who basically said if we're not happy, we must take a refund and go elsewhere. His direct words were, he does this for fun and doesn't need issues. This made us feel very unwelcome and just stayed the night and left as early as we could. The rooms were still unclean when we eventually got into the rooms with the dustbins still having tins and mess in them, the tea and coffee stations they offered had no tea and the bathrooms had no soap, hand sanitiser or toilet paper.

Mooi omgewing en lekker stil. Mooi uitsig oor rivier.

Dit lyk baie mooi op die foto's, maar nie alles is soos dit moet wees nie. Op die oog af skoon en netjies, maar onder die bed was dit baie vuil. Handdoeke en beddegoed is werklik oud en deurgewas en nie die tipe linne wat mens vir gaste sal gebruik nie. Deur van kamer wou ook nie toegaan nie, behalwe as mens dit sluit.

Nice surroundings and nice and quiet. Nice view of river.

It looks very nice in the pictures, but not everything is as it should be. On the surface clean and tidy, but under the bed it was very dirty. Towels and bedding are really old and washed and not the type of linen one would use for guests. Door of room would not close either, except when one closes it.

Prentjie mooi, rustig, ontspannend.

Dit is alles wat die Midlands mooi maak, op een plek! Die eienaars doen baie moeite, met lekker eetgoed, beskuit ens. Die enigste negatiewe punt, was dat daar nie krag was nie agv 'n storm en ons sou 'n kers/liggie waardeer het.

It's everything that makes the Midlands beautiful, in one place! The owners make a lot of effort, with good food, biscuits etc. The only negative point was that there was no power due to a storm and we would have appreciated a candle/light.

An excellent setting with comfortable accommodation from which to explore the Midlands, and great hosts in Dave and Che.

We had an enjoyable stay over the Easter weekend. The accommodation was very comfortable and the complimentary coffee was most welcome. The Trough at Clydesdale is a great recreation room for the family to unwind and relax, especially in the evenings with the roaring fireplace. The location along the Lions River is ideally suited to explore the greater Midlands Meander. Dave and Che were very helpful and willing to oblige.

Best place to stay - perfect for families. Peaceful and hosts are over the Top! Big love.

Clydesdale on Lions River is a unique little piece of heaven. So lovely to come with kids! You go out for activities and foods and come back for the chilling parts of the day and if the kids need some extra active time, they just stroll around, play games or pool, or keep themselves busy along the Lions River! Perfect for a short break or longer weekend. We love our stays and will come back in winter.
