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.

This was my first visit to South Africa and Green Gables is the most wonderful place I have ever stayed . The welcome from Jill and Tiger not forgetting Denzil and the excellent food was second to none. The cottage was full of beautiful furniture and artefacts . I would love to stay there again when I next come to... More

This has to be the most welcoming place in McGregor...I have stayed at Green Gables a number of times with family and friends....from the time one phones the guest house it becomes a matter of...how many sleeps Ma! Jill will just say Mamre(the cottage we are always allocated) will be ready. This last night we happened to ask if any... More

My daughter and I spent an all too short time here last weekend. We needed a bit of R&R! Green Gables was just perfect. Tiger and Jill were so warm and welcoming, and the place has such a special feel to it. We had the most delicious dinner on Saturday night, and the next morning, we had one of the... More

We had such a fantastic dinner here. The warm welcome and friendly family run hospitality was lovely. The food was excellent and the service was attentive and again super friendly! We would have loved to have stayed longer- will definitely be back when in Mcgregor again.
