Reviewed June 12, 2014

We are returning to Edenwood on our way back to Cape Town. The accommodation was thoughtfully considered with attention to detail; the rooms are comfortable and large; the service was excellent and our hostess considerate and helpful. The garden is beautiful and the breakfast very nice.

I am so thrilled that you liked Edenwood so much you returned a week later! That in itself is the best compliment you could give us. I am just so sorry I was not there to meet you both, but pleased that Ilse made sure you were very comfortable. Hopefully next time I will be there to meet you personally and thank you for taking the time to review our establishment both on Tripadvisor and other media - we really do appreciate it.

Thank you so much for the kind words. We appreciate you taking the time to write a review. We hope to see you and your lovely family again some day under less sad circumstances, but we are glad you were comfortable during your four days in George and that we were able to get Wiltshire Cottage ready for you at such short notice. Also that other members of your family were able to be with you for support at that time.

Thank you so much for your wonderful and enthusiastic review. You made our day, and more importantly we are just so glad that we helped to make this special holiday with your daughter such a good experience. I hope you both saw lots of animals in The Kruger Park and that the rest of your stay in South Africa was so good. Happy you are safe home, but we are certain you will return to South Africa - we could hear how much you loved our beautiful country, and if you venture this way again we would love to have you stay at Edenwood.
Kind Regards
Dawn and the team at Edenwood

As part of our holiday in S Africa we spent 2 very enjoyable days staying in The Annex at Edenwood, a comfortable suite in a cottage adjacent to the main house. Our hosts Dawn and Stan and team made us very welcome and its easy to see why its a favourite with Trip Advisor reviewers. An added bonus since our last visit a while ago is the provision of free wi.fi for guest use in all rooms including the cottages which worked well for us in The Annex.
Dawn and Stan have vast local knowledge and further afield and answered all our queries and more so do not miss a visit if you have the opportunity!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms with verandahs have good mountain views, cottages are in nice gardens.

Thank you once again for your kind words and tips for future guests. It is always a pleasure to receive returning guests year after year, it is like old friends coming to stay. I am so glad we were able to secure you a room at short notice and hope next time we will have The Forest View open,but we know your constraints with booking.
I looked up the place you recommended in Montague and must say it looked lovely, so next time we break a journey to Cape Town we will go that way.
Hope the rest of your stay was great and that the weather improved. Once again always a great pleasure to see you both, and the greatest compliment in the world, is for people to want to return every year :-) -it makes us feel we are doing something right, as we enter our 19th year in business.

We are a retired French couple from Canada (Montreal) and traveled South Africa during 2 months renting 31 different lodgings. This one was #20. We had reserved the «Poppy» room at the RC of the main house. As we arrived, they upgraded us and gave us, for the same price, the cottage called «Lemon Tree». Wonderful!!! It is a 2 story cottage with the living space (living room, kitchen) at the RC and the room and bathroom at 2nd level. Flat screen cable TV with many channels, terrace with table and chairs on a nice garden, free WiFi, free parking, Very well equipped kitchen, big room with a lot of places to store your things and a balcony with stools, good bathroom, pool at the main house. We really enjoyed our short stay there.

Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review for us, it means such a lot. Sadly I did not get to meet you personally, but I knew Ilse would take good care of you. I am also pleased you found the cottage so comfortable, I am sure The Poppy Room would also have been comfortable, but unfortunately there was an issue a pipe in the floor that had to be repaired, I am just so glad you did not mind being moved to Lemon Tree Cottage. After such a long trip - it is nice you were able to unwind and make food "at home" etc - we loved your description of everything and hope to have you stay with us again some day - should you venture on another long trip around our beautiful country!
