Clair Garden
Ranked #47 of 62 Wilderness B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 January 2015

Excellent self catering option. Rooms are spacious and all have superb views over Wilderness National Park. The shared balcony is huge and has the same views, very suitable for breakfast in the morning or wine in the evening. I am not a bird watcher but was abundantly explained by both owners about the extensive variety of birds that can be seen from the property, by what I saw it must be bird watchers heaven. The shared kitchen with spacious dining area is spotlessly clean and a big plus. Beach is very close on walking distance, as are multiple dining options.
In all, great value and recommendable hospitality.

Room Tip: All rooms have superb views

Clair Garden B&B has an exeptional view and a great service. The rooms are very big, clean and nice with a beautiful view on the valley, lake and mountains.
The location is perfect: close to the beach, lakes and village. Beautiful and very diverse walks are very nearby.
You can also enjoy yourself relaxing on the terrce and watching many different kind of birds, even the Knysna Loerie.
I highly recommend Clair Garden B&B to anyone in the world.
Susanne and Jan, thanks for the great time end the wonderful hospitality. I will be back soon!

We had a great time and Susanne and Jan really spoilt us. The luxury room was very beautiful en clean and we enjoyed the marvellous breakfast in the morning. The view over Wilderness National Park was breathtakingly beautiful and the ocean was only a walk of a couple of minutes. We made a four day trip to Addo and we could not wish for a better guide than Jan. Thanks for a great time! Jeanne en Erik.

Jan and Susanne are wonderful hosts. The 3 bedroom 1st floor apartment that they give to guests is very well maintained. The rooms are spacious and allow for families with kids to stay comfortably (they have bunk beds in addition to the double beds in some of the rooms).

We reached there on christmas and Susanne had thoughtfully placed christmas crackers on the beds - the kids were absolutely delighted.

The view all around is like a picture postcard. You can sit for hours on the terrace outside the living room and watch the birds come to feed on the fruit laid out for them by Jan. The mornings especially were lovely - with a hearty breakfast on the terrace, and a telescope to watch the birds on a distant tree.

The place is just off the main road, and easy to reach. We used it as a base for our trips to Pletternberg Bay (1.5 hrs drive), Bloukrans (bungee jumping - 2 hrs drive) and Knysna. George airport is barely 30 mins away. The place has a grocery store close by (we actually cooked one dinner in the well supplied kitchen) and several restaurants too.

Jan knows the region very well and gave us good tips on planning our short 2 day trip. Wish it was longer!

Highly recommended for Garden Route!!

In a nutshell: This Bed and Breakfast is truly extraordinary! The location is perfect; close to the beach the lakes and with stunning views to the mountains. A luxury at an affordable price. Outstanding location for day trips to Plettenburg Bay, Knysna, Tsitsikamma Park and of course the whole Wilderness area. Jan and Susanne are extremely friendly and really made us feel at home preparing wonderful breakfasts to keep us going on the tours. I would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast to all my close friends. If you are planning a trip along the Garden Route this is probably the best value for money accommodation you will find on a superb location. The next time we plan a trip in this area, Clair Garden will come top of our list as this is definitely the place where we will stay. Thanks again Jan and Susanne for your kind hospitality.
