Guest Comments

Our stay at Clivia Hill Guest Cottage was excellent. Beautiful and tranquil atmosphere accompanied by great facilities with such warm and welcoming hosts. We had a great time, felt recharged and will definitely be back. Thanks Gill.

A truly amazing place of serenity. Wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

Absolutely fantastic stay, peaceful, lovers of fishing this is a dream come true.
Owners are very friendly and welcoming.
Definitely will go back for a longer stay.
The place is absolutely beautiful, however a few little things could be upgraded to benefit the guests and improve on the image of the guest house.
Supplying of bath towels is high recommended
A bigger TV (A plasma is a suggestion) the TV is very small and outdated.


My kids and I had a fabulous time at Clivia Hill. Clive and Gill are amazing hosts! I was a bit apprehensive about a cottage attached to the owners but they were just wonderful and accommodating of the kids and their running around...and playing with the ever entertaining Charlie the dog!
