Wow what a great place, Dorothy & Geoff went out of there way to make our stay another memorable adventure. Dororthy organized all our food & drinks so we did not have to hassle as we were on adventure motorcycles. Great Steaks & cold beer what more do a few guys want. Stuart also received a valet service on arrival as he was covered in mud, at no extra cost. Cheers Vaughan, Stuart, Anton

We did the Bosmanskloof hike from McGregor to Greyton and Geoff picked us up from Greyton. We had a lovely stay at McGregor Backpackers where we were hosted by Dorothy and Geoff. We would recommend staying here, very comfortable and friendly.

What a wonderful place in the little town of McGregor, did not have this haven in mind when we decided to overnight there. A friend did say that she stays there quite often but you have to do it to understand what the experience is all about. Our stay was to short to enjoy all that is available. Not even mentioning the warm reception and hospitality of the inn keepers. Try it you will be surprised.

We were a group of 23 at the Backpackers for my 30th birthday. The friendliness of our amazing hosts, Dorothy and Geoff, that facilited the perfect experience for us will never be forgotten. I was highly impressed with the cleanliness and relaxed ambiance. We could just relax and enjoy being in a beautiful place with good food, a fire and beautiful friends/family. Thank you does not express my gratitude.

Thank you Alika for your kind and generous review. What made your group so special was the way you included Geoff and myself into your celebration. Your friendship was heartwarming and we hope we will see you back at the backpackers in the not too distant future.

A friend and I recently spent a most enjoyable couple of nights at McGregor Backpackers. Guests of our hosts, Dorothy and Geoff, will find themselves accommodated in comfortable, ensuite rooms overlooking a quiet, inner courtyard and and garden a full of indigenous, water saving cacti and succulents. Both Dorothy and Geoff take real pleasure in talking with their guests and are full of ideas as to how one can make the most of a visit to this historic, charming and out of the way village nestling amidst the winelands of the Western Cape.
