We stayed a night at the Edenwood Guest House in George and wished that our stay here was only longer. Beautiful self contained apartments in perfect garden setting. Dawn, who owns and manages Edenwood was a wonderful host and ensured that the apartment provided all that we could ask for. Clean, comfortable with a matching decor. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Edenwood guest house in George based on it's very high rating on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed : lovely rooms, excellent facilities, and an exceptionally warm welcome from the hosts Dawn and Stan. Nothing was too much trouble.

We regret not having time to stay longer and explore the area, but we plan to return next time we pass through George.

One of the best B & B in South Africa that we have been to in a long time. What you see on the internet is what you get. Classy, clean and excellent breakfast.

Family visiting from overseas and ourselves (wife, self and 3-yr old) stayed for 2 nights at the Wiltshire Cottage... found it very homely and tastefully equipped with everything that we needed, including milk in the refrigerator and tea/coffee, and a private braai area that we used the first evening we were there.

Clearly, Dawn and Stan have taken great pain and personal interest to equip the Cottage and make it a luxurious and restful place for road-trippers like us who explore the Rainbow nation.

Had heard about Dawn's legendary breakfasts and fixed it up with her in advance... it was a 3-4 course breakfast (details kinda fuzzy since am writing this after road-tripping many days across SA) that certainly lived up to it's reputation and beckons repeat visits.

Room Tip: Make sure you feed in Edenwood House or the GPS coordinates into the GPS unit... merely house number...

I travel the Garden Route at least every second month and this is the best place to stay in George. I think I’ve stayed in all the rooms that are available and I can report the following: The rooms are cozy, comfortably decorated, impeccably clean and very well appointed with high quality bed linens and towels. You feel as comfortable as you are in your own home. Wireless internet is available for doing my business away from office. Breakfast is delicious and the table pleasantly set. The property is beautiful and green and Dawn and Stan are great hosts. That is why I always return.

We chose Edenwood based on previous excellent reviews, and we were not disappointed. We stayed in our own private cottage and greatly enjoyed the peace and quiet and privacy. The cottage had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable. We were able to eat at home whenever we wanted, but it was only a short drive to several excellent and very reasonably priced restaurants in George. Dawn and Stan took great care to ensure that all our needs were met, and the cleaning staff came in virtually every day and kept the cottage spotlessly clean. We barbecued on several evenings and the gardener cleaned the BBQ after each occasion. Brilliant! We would highly recommend Edenwood as a great place to stay in George for those travelling the Garden Route. The only negative comment is that we were often woken up early by dogs barking, birds squawking and other animal noises - but we were in South Africa so this was to be expected.

We arrived a bit early on 8 March, but Dawn gave us a warm welcome and showed us the ropes. Our whole stay of two full weeks was pleasant and comfortable.

Both Dawn and Stan were very helpful in every way. We were given really good advice on where to dine and on interesting excursions. Everything was spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished and of very good quality. Our cottage was serviced every day and our laundry done regularly. Our breakfasts were delicious, healthy, varied and beautifully served! The whole atmosphere was very friendly and we felt at home immediately. To top it all, the accommodation is near to many shops and beautiful beaches.

Our stay there was indeed memorable! We will definitely go back to Edenwood Guest House on our next holiday in South Africa!
