"Could have been a better experience"
10 Mar 2017
By Stephano Radaelli
"The breakfast was what made the experience ultimate, as for the rest, it was mediocre. The main lights kept tripping and even when checking in, it was not hospitable at all - having the security guard show us in but not dressed approrpiately nor offering us the delight that we were looking for. Friendliness goes a long way. The first impression upon arriving set in disappointments. I have stayed in better in Balito for less, so I would have expected something more remarkable given the existing reviews that were posted. Even upon checking-out and leaving, there was just a lack of friendliness from the lady who worked at the restaurant next door. The question is, would I stay here again, no... not even for the breakfast experience again."

"Not quite sure how the 4 star grading was achieved but 2 star is more applicable. Hygiene standards poor - one of our rooms contained the previous guest's undergarment and hair on the bed linen.. TV not working. Noisy live music in the pub next door until late. Would not return."

"We had a good stay at Lake Clarens Guest House, Bruce runs a nice Guest House, the rooms are clean, the linen is clean and the rooms are decored out nicely.The breakfast is first class and neither my wife nor myself could complain about the service at the Guest House.We had one minor down fall, on Saturday evening we wanted to shower, however the water was cold. After a while I investigated and found the circuit breakers for the geysers had been switched off. As I could not find anyone around, I switched them back on so we could have hot water. Needless to say after an hour waiting, we had a warm shower each.Otherwise we would recommend the Guest house and will return when we visit Clarens again.Thank you Bruce and Team"
"Absolutely Execellent"

"We had a last minute business trip we had to arrange and my boyfriend and I were so very happy to have got accommodation here. It was our first time in Clarens and Bruce the owner made sure we will definitely go back. The room was very clean, beautifully furnished and the bed was very comfortable. They really go the extra mile here, one gets fruit and snacks with your tea and coffee in the room, the breakfast is yummy and they even have a car fairy who washes your car in the morning. The restaurant next door to the Guest house has food as well. It was recommended we try the pizza, and we now recommend you try the pizza. Thanks Bruce, we will be seeing you again."

"Not pleasant at all. The place is tired and run down - far from 4-star quality. The only good thing was their breakfast"

"We had a wonderful stay at Lake Clarens: the room was clean, the staff were friendly and breakfasts were good. The owner, Bruce, runs a calm and comfortable establisment and was a mine of knowledge for our journey ahead - which roads to take and which not to. Thank you."

"Highly recommended. A restaurant on the premises does not require going out for dinner. Rooms are well appointed, clean with cozy underfloor heating for chilly winters evenings. Had an excellent breakfast on the patio overlooking the lake. Highly recommended."
