Clarens – where to stay

I recently asked for recommended places to stay in Clarens as we are going there for a wedding soon, and tons of people asked me to share the recommendations, so here they are in a blog post – easy to come back to when you need to.

Please remember I haven’t personally stayed in any of these places, but all recommended by my community on IG.

Clarens is a small town situated in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains in the Free State province of South Africa and nicknamed the “Jewel of the Eastern Free State”. Source
