We expected more, nobody about most of the time. The room ( the honeymoon room) was not very nice, very small, thank goodness we weren't on our honeymoon, otherwise I think our marriage would have been over. The breakfast was very good.Im sorry but I can not recommend Green Gables.

Well, well, well, here it is, one of the best places we stayed in in South Africa on our major trip. Fantastic room, cute decor and great shower. Lovely restaurant open Weds, Fri and Saturday nights - the food was really home cooking and delicious. Please go there if in McGregor - a MUST SEE!!!! Sean

Green Gables is picture pretty with beautiful interior, neat, clean, well equipped and good value for money. The meals are excellent, beautifully presented and very tasty. Gill, our hostess, was very hospitable. We loved the old world charm of this place.

Such a great experience! feels like you are in a home, a guest of theirs. Great food and warm hospitality Wild vineyards to walk through, and some of the best wine farms are a shirt trip away, like Springfield!

This is a difficult review to write! The hosts were outstanding as was the breakfast in the morning. The room was okay but the shower a disaster! A trickle of water, dirty shower floor, towels that were so hard, you could exfoliate when using them. A lovely view. So, what do I say, loved the hospitality and breakfast but the... More

Gill and Tiger are very special people and thier welcoming happy nature made us feel right at home. This is a wonderful place, full of old world charm and values. The food was delicious, a treat in fact. The pace is gentle and relaxing. I am unable to fault anything about our time there. I cannot wait to go back.

If you're looking for tv's and modern fittings then you've got the wrong place. Green Gables is all about adjusting to the relaxed pace of McGregor, taking long walks through the town or reserve or alternatively just sitting on the veranda reading your book. We had such a great stay here and the highlight was most definitely dinner on Saturday... More

We spend this unique warm winters weekend at Green Gable in McGregor RSA where the owners Tiger & Jill give personal service as if your one of the family. One gets to meet British Expiates mixed with local Afrikaners and young couples escaping Cape Town. The home interior ceases to amaze me, with colourful painting filling the walls. We were... More

Gill and Tiger are the best hosts ever, the minute you walk in you feel as if you have 'come home'. A great spot for a quiet getaway. They offer dinner on some days of the week, so check when you book. The meals are home style and delicious. The little Bar is abuz with locals, a great spot to... More

This is everything one would want from a country guest house. Comfortable, clean, good value and last but not least charming hosts. We were a demanding group (requiring breakfast at 5 a.m.) and nothing was too much trouble. I will definitely be back.
