Elephant River Guest House Clanwilliam Reviews
Nov 09, 2007
Elephant River Guest House is conveniently close to the town without being surrounded by noise and bustle. Situated in a large garden, the Guest House consists of a main house and several garden chalets. We stayed in a chalet with an imposing brass bed draped in mosquito nets.
In keeping with its elephantine name, Elephant River Guest House has a colonial theme, with careful touches and a discerning eye. Pith helmets would not feel out of place, and were conspicuous by their absence from Georgina's impressive hat collection.
Clanwilliam can get seriously hot, and the chalets have been designed for coolness, minimising the light and maximising the airiness. The swimming pool no doubt gets its fair share of action.
Breakfast in the main house is a substantial affair, prepared to your specification, and inclined to induce somnolence in the summery sun filtering through the trees rather than the energetic impetus we struggled to muster for walking.
