Green Gables Country Inn
Ranked #6 of 9 McGregor B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 18, 2014

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 best breakfasts we have had for years! What a wonderful find - will definitely return for longer next time.

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.

We have stayed here a few times and absolutely love the place. They cook dinner most nights and its tasty home style cooking, done by the owner. Check when you book as he does take a night off occasionally. Breakfast is amazing and beautifully presented on the patio, weather permitting.
Its close to town so we just walk down the road for lunch.
No TV or wifi, this is a place to totally relax.

Room Tip: There is a wonderful 'honeymoon' room that we love. Its away from the others and is a little...

We were in McGregor a few weeks ago, and as a happy coincidence it was the weekend of the Wine by the River Festival. We were staying up at a lodge and when we arrived the hosts there gave us a few minutes to decide whether or not we were going to be having dinner there. As we'd just arrived, we thought it might be better to go into town and called a few restaurants, but unfortunately they were all fully booked because of the festival. So we went back to our hosts, but they gave away our reservation behind our backs. Disappointed and hungry, we made our way to Mc Gregor to find more places to eat. After a long hunt, we stumbled upon Green Gables and the hostess was incredibly hospitable! She said that she had been fully booked for dinner, and that she was also accommodating her newly arrived guests (14 in number) who had not made any other dinner plans that night. But she was so nice to accommodate 5 of us!!! The property was gorgeous as was the ambience of the restaurant!! It was such a wonderful ending to the day!

Hi, I can wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Green Gables. I stayed for 3 nights with my husband, brother and sister in law earlier this month. From our arrival and meeting Clinton, who incidentally can offer you a wealth of advice should you be looking to live there, we went to our beautiful rooms. We had the very large room with self catering kitchen which was beyond beautiful. High thatched roof, antiques, pictures, roll top bath- so South African. Your hosts are Tiger and Jill, great couple, warm, affectionate, entertaining, we felt just like part of the family.

The bar is run on honesty, good selection, just write your tab down in the book and help yourself.

Breakfast was on the terrace each morning, beautifully laid out with bright linen and fresh roses, fruit salad, sausage, egg, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, toast, coffee - all lovely and cooked by Tiger. Dinner available on Weds and Saturday nights! very popular and the bar/dining room fills with local people as well and a great party atmosphere, homemade soups, curries, fish and calamari combo.

Also a very lovely poodle called Denzil who does a great howling/singing act in exchange for a saucer of milk.

McGregor is an oasis of calm, walk, hire bikes and absorb being somewhere reminiscent of former times.

Big thank you to Tiger and Gill for making a very very pleasant break.

Room Tip: All rooms great, Honeymoon suite lovely too.

Green Gables is home from home, the rooms are neat and very rustic. The hospitality is great and we enjoyed a beautiful home cooker dinner which is serves on a Friday and Saturday evenings

If you enjoy a quiet farm style stay, look no further thar the Green Gables.

Arriving after 8 in the evening, we were immediately made to feel welcome by Jill and Tiger. Dinner was already on the go but we were assured that there was definitely room for 2 more in the dining room should we wish. We were ushered into the bar where some locals were sitting and both Jill and the locals made us feel very welcome. Drinks were offered and we were told to just keep a mental note of what we were having and could fix up the next morning! Dinner in the elegant dining room was an absolute delight! Tiger has an absolute flair for cooking and everything was delicious. The 'to die for' cheese cake with caramel topping, is worthy of a visit just on its own! Both our hosts joined everyone in the diningroom later where Tiger entertained us with showing us how their french poodle Denzil, can sing in different tones, on demand. Very entertaining character is Denzil! Breakfast was served on the terrace in front of the dining area, overlooking the valley. Attention to detail is amazing. This is a family run hotel and everyone was friendly, and interacted with every guest. Everything runs smoothly and we felt as if we had made new friends. What a wonderful weekend. We really felt at home. Thanks Jill, Tiger..... we will be back as soon as we can.

Room Tip: The Barn was a delightful experience and we would request this if possible next time.
