Mandy wrote a review Dec 2021

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Amour Guest House the last weekend in November. We had planned a trip to George 2 months prior at a different guesthouse but then mother nature came with a storm and caused damage across George affecting the facilities at our booked guesthouse. We were notified 1 day before our departure that we should consider changing our reservation. We couldn't change the dates so I spent the day hunting for alternative accommodation. I called George Tourism and they gave me a list of places. I went down the list, calling multiple places and they were either booked full or affected by the storm, too. I got to number 5 on the list and the sweetest lady Margarita was able to accommodate us at Amour Guest House, due to a last-minute cancellation. This meant that she had 24 hours to prep for our arrival. We confirmed and paid the deposit shortly after the call and thereafter corresponded on WhatsApp chat. She checked up on our journey to George and once were booked in, she checked in daily if we were happy with the accommodation and to confirm our dietary requirements for breakfast. Amour Guesthouse is beautiful, spacious and spotless. I would love to visit Margarita and her husband again during our annual Garden Route trips. We got after-sale service too as I forgot something and she had it sent to Cape Town for me. If you are looking for a modern-homely place to stay I highly recommend Amour Guest House.

This property excels itself with how spotless their accommodation is. In these difficult Covid times, we felt very safe and comfortable with how they manage, not only the property but their staff as well. Immaculate Rooms and surrounds. The service is excellent, the breakfasts delicious and overall the peaceful beautiful surroundings just what we needed for our short stay.
Will definitely return to this spot again! Lovely friendly hosts!

I recently booked my family in at Amour guest house as my son was competing in a gala in George. I initially made the booking through Booking.Com and made immediate payment. The owner called me shortly thereafter to advise that I should cancel my booking through the OTA (Online Travel Agent) and book directly with him as it will be cheaper.
On arrival, my wife was informed that there is no hot water during load shedding, something that should have been mentioned during the reservation process, when she showed her disappointed the owner (Francois)informed her that load shedding is a "South African thing", in other words suck it up! In the room there was a basic light as consolation to see you through the 2hr period of load shedding.
Given that the house finds itself in darkness during load shedding, one would feel unsafe entering the property during this period. Unfortunately load shedding is a "South African thing", however any credible hospitality offering should mitigate this issue with a generator, inverter, battery pack or even solar power.
My wife checked out with my son an hour after arriving, when I enquired what the refund would be the owner advised that there would be no refund.
If the lack of power was declared upfront to me, none of this would have mattered, however the owners unsympathetic approach will just land him in "cold" water.....
My advice, book a Hotel or Guest House with power!

Dear Glynn Thank you very much for taking time to leave a review. I am glad to inform you that our solar system was installed in December and all the electrical outlets and lights at our guesthouse operates as normal during loadshedding. Unfortunately, with the sudden deterioration of loadshedding during 2022, the demand for solar systems increased significantly which resulted in extremely long lead time for our installation. I apologize for your wife’s inconvenience. I was not aware that she checked out until you informed by SMS later that night. Most of our guests enquire on the security and the backup plans for loadshedding before they take the decision to book with us. As we discussed, unfortunately, we do not offer a full refund for cancelation on the day of arrival. However, we do offer a credit for the days of the initial booking not used. I would like to invite you to make use of your credit with us the next time you will be looking for accommodation in George. We offer a quality hospitality product as you will notice on all previous reviews on the major travel websites like booking.com, TripAdvisor and Google. We would like to have the opportunity to make it up to you for the inconvenience Samantha faced. Kind regards Francois

Amour guesthouse is situated in Heatherlands, George, Western Cape, right on the Garden Route.
Beautiful mountain view setting, newly renovated, clean spacious rooms, sparkling pool and deck, relaxing gardens, and a lovely welcoming greeting. What more could you ask of your stay?
Very central to George, close to the airport, and a wonderful launch pad for your tour of the Garden Route. You won't regret staying here.

My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights in January while visiting family in George. The house is fantastic and the area is lovely and quite with fantastic views of George peak. The house is completely unaffected by load shedding which was brilliant as while we were there the electric was off quite a lot!

The room was spotless and cleaned each day, the pool was perfect and breakfasts were great as well! Francois and his wife are very attentive hosts and did all they could to ensure our stay was perfect.

Cannot fault this guesthouse and definitely hope to return in the further. Highly recommend!!!

We had a wonderful stay at Amour. We were in George for our daughter's swimming event and Margarit and Francois went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. They provided us with the best breakfast packs, as we had early mornings next to the pool as well as made sure everything was perfect in the rooms when we got back late.

We stayed here as had a client meeting in George and I must say we will definitely be back. The welcome was warm and friendly. Very clean and modern and the room had everything you need. The garden was neat and lush and the view in the morning of the sun on the mountains was stunning. Breakfast was great and the free wifi worked perfectly.
