Previously owned by the Cape Governor and Earl of Clarendon, the properties were recently renovated into the elegant charm we see today. The restaurant and terrace overlooks the landscaped garden and secluded pool, while the property itself faces the ocean that is located a mere few minutes away. Breakfast is served daily, with a fine selection of cakes and coffee in the afternoon. At night, you can dine in truly authentic South African style, with a typical outdoor barbeque on a balmy night. If a traditional braai is not what you are looking for, then you are spoiled for choice with all the restaurants within your direct vicinity.

Keep to the right as the road forks after Groote Schuur Hospital. Take Strand Street and travel through the city, which will eventually become High Level. After about 5 kilometers, you will turn right into Fresnay and left again into Kloof. The Clarendon Fresnay is situated on the left hand side at number 67.
