The accommodation comprises seven double bedrooms (three Deluxe and four standard) with queen-size beds and three twin bedrooms (one Deluxe wheelchair accessible and two standard) with king-size beds or two single beds by arrangement.

All rooms are en-suite, have private entrances and are equipped with coffee- and tea-making facilities, free wifi, on-site parking as well as outside seating to soak up the Clarens environment. Electric blankets are supplied for the challenging winter temperatures in Clarens. There are servers, TV’s and additional seating in all the Deluxe rooms. The lodge prides itself on comfortable and affordable accommodation with spectacular views of Mount Horeb and the Maluti mountain range.

A huge lawn provides the young ones the opportunity to spend some extra energy, whilst a communal lounge with full DSTV and a  fire place, contributes further to a home-away-from-home atmosphere. A well stocked library caters for the book worms who prefers to laze the days away. The 100 square metre “stoep” with canvas sides and fireplace is ideal for small functions or conferences or to enjoy a sun downer and watch Mount Horeb and the Maluti mountains bathed in the late afternoon sunshine.
