We enjoyed our stay very much, Dorothy and Geoff are the most friendly and welcoming people, they went out of their way for us. The room was spotless and beautiful, as is the courtyard, with its plants and water. We were offered fresh free range eggs and organic tomatoes for our breakfast, free off charge. If you're in McGregor, just stay at the Backpackers.

Dorothy and Geoffrey are very friendly hosts, and the hostel itself is one of the best I have stayed in. Everything is very well kept and it is has a quirky style. Selection of dorms and double or single rooms with free WiFi and kitchen facilities. Highly recommended to anyone.

Absolutely wonderful! That's my opinion of the McGregor Backpackers after spending 2 nights there in March. Bed was very comfy, room very clean, no bugs and a very nice homy feeling. Breakfast was a delight and I got to order almost anything I could wish for. Ended up with a nice fruitsallad, rooibos tea, orange/mango juice, homemade bread, one of the best cheese omelettes I've ever had and really great ham. It was so good I ordered the same both mornings. The garden is a haven of tranquility and nearby is the wonderful Temenos. And the couple who runs the place where the sweetest. Very caring and nice to hang out with but not in that superficial way you sometimes get. No, these guys are for real and I for one will go back. Have you ever seen a 3 legged dog? Go there, they've

Now here we have a true must for anyone from backpackers to older chaps like us who needed somewhere to stay. My wife's aunt in McGregor recommended this and Geoff and Dorothy and their little place truly were one of our best places we stayed in. It is self catering but forget that if you want because there were nice places for you to eat and be merry in town. To crown the whole thing, they called my on my 60th birthday and sang "Happy Birthday" to me. Now that is what I call a truly service orientated place. Have fun and please go there! Sean

Thank you for your kind review of our establishment. We are always striving to give our guests a memorable experience and to instill in them the wish to return. We do apologise at this rather late response but we are newbies to the TripAdvisor program and have had to work out where everything is. Kindest regards to you both and a speedy return to South Africa

This backpackers lodge is without doubt one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed. A fully stocked kitchen in an immaculate condition where meals can be prepared is once again a big plus. The owners are extremely helpful, friendly people who go the extra mile to make sure all their guests needs are met. After leaving documents which I needed in my room, Geoff the owner thought nothing of hopping on his bike and bringing them to me some 40 kilometres away. We arrived late at night due to unforeseen circumstances at the start of our trip, all our phones having now gone flat, Dorothy took sms's from a worried family member at 11 pm at night to reassure her that all was well. On our last night a big bonfire was prepared and we braaied and chatted under the starry karoo sky
