I’ve going to Clanwilliam since I was about 8yrs old and after a spell in the US we started going back to clanwilliam. We were looking for a relatively inexpensive hotel to use when up there and found Blommenberg.
We loved it there and stayed many many times. The owner is always around and always ready to chat. I will never forget the time we bought some lamb knecks from the butchery and he slow roasted them in the pizza over during the day while we were at the water enjoying the weather and water. It was amazing.
The hotel is small and clean, the staff are welcoming. There are brick fireplaces setup and you can buy dry wood there. All the rooms have a kitchenette with cutlery and pretty much all you will need. I remember waking up in the morning to silence other than the birds chirping which was refreshing.
Great spot to sleep, shower and have a hot breakfast (which is included) before heading to the dam. There is a small pool in the middle of the hotel for cool down swim in the afternoon. There are some bigger rooms in-front which can accommodate 4 people easily. We were 2 adults and 2 kids. We used to take a few rooms with family and friends and take the place over :).
We have chosen Blommenberg GH for our stay during our trip and we did not regret. The setting is stunning with pool and garden, the accommodation was quiet and comfortable but the breakfast with different kinds of tropical fruits, salads, cereals, bakery or options of ordering eggs or sausages was definitely exceptional. It is clear that the owners are proud of their business and we took advantage of exceptional variety of food on offer.
we stayed two night is this small family run B&B. The rooms are basic with good beds. The airco was noisy so we didn't use it during the night. The garden around the swimming pool is a bit small. The breakfast is the best we had in South Africa. You can hear traffic from the main road. Fortunately the road is not busy at night time.
My research suggested that the Blommenberg Guest House was the obvious place to stay in Clanwilliam, and I was not disappointed. The service was very friendly and helpful, and the hot weather (the room has aircon) even tempted me to use the swimming pool! I came up from Citrusdal and spent a day each in the Northern and Southern sections of the Cederberg (the road South from Wuppertal is 4 x 4 only). The rocks are just great but be warned that the roads are often untarred, so it takes longer than you might think. If you get to Clanwilliam, you are probably there for the Cederberg, and it will be a worthwhile trip. It will not appeal to the people you find at the Cape Town Waterfront, but if you are reading this you must like the great outdoors.
My husband booked here as a suprise for our honeymoon road trip. I loved the courtyard set up, with all the rooms facing onto the swimmingpool. At night the courtyard is lit up and is lovely. The room was very nice with air con,ceiling fan(which ARE needed in the Summer)fully stocked fridge,flat screen tv and comfortable bed. The staff were lovely and very helpfull in telling us where was good to eat out. I think the best part of our stay and i would recomend to all that go-is to sit in the pool at night with a glass of something nice and gaze at the stars(it truly is magical)
