Stayed for five nights in February. Delightful room which opened out on to a beautiful garden. Our breakfast was served in the garden every morning and was delicious. Yoghurt, fruit and granola followed by a hot dish of eggs, bacon etc. Val, the owner, was very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. We were totally relaxed and would definitely return if we visit. McGregor again. Thank you Val for looking after us so well.

We have been coming to McGregor for over 15 years and love the village. We only recently discovered Fountain Place, which is just magical. Valerie was so welcoming, and the cottage is beautifully designed with some wonderful art on the walls. We had a superb breakfast in the courtyard watching the sugarbirds, and she has the most delightful and entertaining rescue dog! We will definitely be back!

Thank you Valerie for a wonderful stay with you. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening drinks on your terrace and our suite was absolutely exquisite. Unusual for us both to sleep right through a night and wonderful to wake up to your beautiful birds. The garden and setting is truly delightful and the coffee delicious. What more could we want? Thanks again!

My wife and I were paying our second visit to McGregor and chose this guesthouse as it seemed to offer the comfort and quiet surroundings that we sought. In fact, Fountain Place offered much more than that, as it was managed by a charming couple who did everything possible to make us feel welcome. This was despite my wife suffering from a tummy bug she picked up en route and myself tripping on a rough piece of pavement in the village and collecting a nasty cut hand in the process. The breakfasts served were excellent, the sunbirds were lovely to watch and we were sorry when our stay ended.

We are so pleased that you chose Fountain Place for your second stay in McGregor, Henry and Rosie! It means that we got to meet two wonderful people! Your kind review is extremely appreciated and we are delighted that you felt welcome and were able to enjoy the comfort and quiet surroundings. We were just so sorry that Rosie was not well enough to enjoy a full breakfast each morning, as she tried to recover from her bug, such a shame. We were pleased that Henry was able to do our breakfasts justice though! Such a shame that Henry cut his hand too, while out and about in the village, and we hope it has healed now. Thanks for your kind compliments about the breakfasts! So happy you enjoyed the sun birds too! We, too, were sorry when your stay ended! We could have chatted with you both for hours! You had some amazing stories to tell, truly fascinating! In fact, we have since been trying to track down the image of your cat, Harry, featured in Pink Floyd's Endless River album leaflet! How amazing that he visited them on their floating recording studio and became friends with them! Hoping that you have both fully recovered and have been able to enjoy the rest of your stay in South Africa! Kindest regards to you both, thinking of you, Linzi

We wondered if we could possibly enjoy our return visit, as much as last year. No problem at all, better than ever. The welcome and attention to detail is very heart warming. Advice on restaurants and attractions is spot on Even more exciting as Linzi, is now becoming a popular authoress, with her lovely new children’s book, ‘The little cat that thought she was a dog’, so even some bed time reading

Dear John, We cannot thank you enough, as always, for writing such a kind review of your stay with us! It was so special to welcome you and Sue back to Fountain Place, we thoroughly enjoyed seeing you again, hosting you, and spending time chatting to you over a G&T! We are delighted that your stay was as special as last year, and even better! On a personal note, I cannot thank you enough for your kindness in reviewing my book, the Little Cat who thought she was a Dog, by Linzi Carlisle, on amazon! That was an amazing thing to do, John, thank you! And five stars too! You are star indeed! I am excited to be working on my first full length novel for adults now! I hope you enjoy it when it is published! Thanks again, to both of you, for staying with us! Warmest regards, Linzi & Justin

Two beautifully converted heritage cottages attached to the main thatched house. Each has a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. Swimming pool was refreshing and adequate off street parking. Linzi and Justin were very friendly, caring and helpful. They provided an excellent breakfast and we would love to stay with them again and highly recommend.
