The cottage we got was lovely. Nice electric blankets, feather duvets and fire place and sherry. It is a self catering unit but as we were only gonna be there one night we opted to eat at the restaurant. I cannot remember that I ever had such bad food. Menu had good choices but quality was bad. The waiter could... More

Hogsback is a special little piece of heaven, a veritable jewel in the crown of the already exquisite Amatola mountain range. It is an ideal getaway for any person wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Visit it in spring to experience more shades of green than even the most creative artist could imagine, while in... More

We visited the edge riding Harley Davidsons and the road in and out is really not suited to a motorbike. It was difficult to find and certainly off the beaten track a little. However once there it was an enjoyable stay. The rooms are spread out and some are over 109 meters from the check in and restaurant area which... More

Cliffside cottage is great. It is big and has lovely views when the mist clears. But be warned... go and enjoy the view immediately when you find it clear - the mist rises very quickly and it changes from clear view to white-out in minutes. The food in the restaurant was very good. Our only complaint was that the wood... More

We loved the view and gardens, it's so peaceful and beautiful! We were in a BnB room and found it comfortable.The food is outstanding! Dinner is terribly over priced but very good food non the less. We didn't find much to do in Hogsback but we enjoyed just relaxing at the Edge. You must make sure you see the view... More

We stayed over in one of the lovely double rooms on our way to Jeffreys Bay. Stunning little village with lovely restaurants and pubs. The restaurant at The Edge Mountain Retreat can do with a bit of renovation though. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will be back in winter for the Christmas in July weekend. Hope for snow. Imagine it... More

We thoroughly enjoyed Hogsback in general, and The Edge added to us enjoying our stay so much. We only stayed 1 night, which was very shortsighted, if I could go back I would have stayed at very minumum 2 nights!!! The Edge is beautiful though, we stayed in Firefly which had a huge king bed, a nice bathroom and wasn't... More

This was our first visit to Hogsback and by using Trip Advisor chose The Edge to spend the night. We were not disappointed! The setting was absolutely stunning, the unit was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The starlings were nesting in the roof and saw us as intruders. Every time my husband walked out on the patio... More

A lot of houses to choose from and each house has a different style and of course budget. Some houses are spectacular, we had the Stargazer and it was a complete house, from bedroom to bedroom you had to cross the kitchen an living room (about 25 metres of space). A huge fire place is there for you to admire... More
