Hello Dawieda, Thank you for your thoughtful review. Before Geoff and I retired to start our backpackers we did a lot of camping and caravanning and our years out there taught us a lot about what people need in those situations. Hot, strong showers being one of them and plenty of hooks and rails to hang your things on in the bathroom without having to put them on the floor and foot towels. Simple things really but they go a long way to make a guests stay more pleasant. We hope when you come to our side of the world again we will be your place of choice. Kind regards Dorothy and Geoff

Hello Nigel, We enjoyed your visit very much and while we were very quiet on Friday night we more than made up for it on Saturday morning with the breakfast crowd and the rugby which unfortunately we did not win but the friendships more than made up for that. We look forward to welcoming your family and friends and showing them some good country hospitality. Take care on your lean orange machine in the meantime.

We had such a fantastic stay! Our hosts were so friendly, they made us feel right at home. They had suggested the farmers market on Sunday and what a terrific half hour it is! So much love is poured into the sprit of community. We were also lucky enough to catch a Tony Cox concert given especially for the backpacks! Accommodation is clean and the kitchen very well stalked. You will make a few new friends on this stay, guaranteed!

We decided to stay at the backpackers in May this year. We had no booking but was lucky enough to find the last room available. We ended up extending our stay for a week. The couple who owns it made us feel right at home and we had the most amazing time around the camp fire. Will we be back..Hell yes!!!

Thank you kind traveler, we love to have guests around the fire, that's where special friendships happen and often guests who make friends and leave, arrive once more to find that special fire friend has returned at the same time. We love this and are happy when our guests are too

5 Star accommodation, appliances, service, safe parking, meditation garden. Spotless clean lavatories. Crisp fresh linen. Home away from home in a village situated on a convergence of Lay Lines. The hosts, Geoff and Dorothy are superb entertainers with oceans full of knowledge. Humble, refined, courteous and polite. Heavenly experience that I would never trade for gold. I value their sanctuary and rate it well above backpackers in many cities. Gratitude to Gracy, Feebie and Jessie who make the backpackers feel so homely. I am blessed to have the affinity to stumble across this garden of Eden in the Breede Valley. Gratitude.

This is my fifth visit to this extra-ordinary backpackers, and I will definitely return, again and again! The tranqual gardens and fantastic hospitality makes you feel welcome right from the start. The owners take pride in keeping the kitchen, rooms and on-suite bathrooms super clean. If you ever need a place to really switch off from all the stress and just sit back and relax, McGregor Backpackers is the place to go, whether you are single, a group of friends or a family. And don't think this is just a quiet little village with nothing to do, you're making a big mistake. The various quaint little shops, the art galleries and pottery studios, together with the various wine farms and the donkey sanctuary makes for pleasant outings. As I mentioned, I'll be back!!

Even with your foot in a "moonboot" due to your accident, your insistence on always wanting to help warms our hearts. As usual, when it is time to say goodbye, it will be with sore hearts. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your stay with us
