We did the Greyton/Mcgregor hike and stayed over with Dorothy and Geoff, salt of the earth locals who did everything they could to make us felt welcome. Geoff also collected us and dropped us off from where the hike ends. The backpackers is super clean and neat and suited our purposes perfectly as they also have interleading rooms for families. They are also a stone’s throw away from Tebaldi’s restaurant which is great for breakfast lunch or supper.
A group of 22 of us all gathered in McGregor to pay our last respects to my dear cousin Herbie .. who passed away very suddenly whilst living in McGregor. Who would be able to accommodate so large a crowd preferably together to talk hug and offer each other support at this sad sad time??? We were told..MCGREGOR BACKPACKERS would be able to. Really? So many of us? YES..YES..AND yes again. Dorothy and Geoff became our newest family members..nothing was too much trouble and all done in a spirit of warmth and caring..whilst we were able to enjoy the wonderful comfort of our rooms..cool in the intense heat..and shared the common places where many a hug and a tear was shared in the lounge kitchen and gorgeous garden..so important to a family of outdoor nature lovers. Outstanding…
Perfect venue for a big family gathering. This was a very sad occasion but our hosts were up to it and turned it into a wonderful warm, caring, spiritual happening. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed. Highly recommended.
We came from all over the world to remember and celebrate Herbie’s sad passing, right here in Dorothy and Geoff’s beautiful and exquisite secret garden. We (Herbie’s family) were all welcomed and gracefully accommodated here, making our stay at McGregor Backpackers (the best Backpackers place I have ever visited) a most memorable and positive experience. Thanks Dorothy, thanks Geoff. You truly do have a more than a 5* highly recommended place.
This backpackers is a real gem. Dorethy and Jeff are excellent hosts who really make you feel welcome and at home. Home away from home in a tranquille environment. I can see myself returning multiple times.
