Its a beautifully located and very beautifully done guest house. The moment we entered, we thought- wow why do we stay in all those fancy hotels, this is much prettier. We were staying in the lemon tree cottage and it was a duplex with a small living area on the ground floor and a bedroom on the first. The room was very clean, equipped with all the things one would need for their stay and the kitchen was also very well equipped. The location of the guest house was also beautiful, in a residential area- hence very very quiet. We loved our stay and Edenwood and if we ever get to visit George again (which I really hope we do :) ), we would definitely stay here!

Thank you for the wonderful comments, it was a great start to our day to see such a lovely review. We are so happy you felt so comfortable and we would also love to have you both return one day. Hope the rest of your holiday was special and that you will return to South Africa again some time soon.
Best wishes

From the minute that I arrived I felt so welcome and comfortable. Dawn, the owner, and Corne, the manager, are wonderful hosts and take genuine interest and care of their guests. My room was so lovely and the bed so comfortable, and I had my own private balcony with the most beautiful views of the forest and bird life. This guest house is in a very tranquil and beautiful setting, and I will always choose to stay here when visiting George. Breakfasts are top class and served in the lovely breakfast room overlooking the swimming pool and forest. I even saw two Knysna Loerie's in the tree tops while having breakfast....a first for me! Thanks again for a really lovely stay and for the most amazing and warm hospitality.

Edenwood Guest House is the best place to stay in George, so we had no difficulty in choosing once again to book in there - it really feels like home from home. As always we were greeted very warmly by Stan and Dawn. The lovely quiet area and beautiful garden were most condusive to getting us in the mood for our holiday. Dawn again treated us to a delicious breakfast in the breakfast room overlooking the garden and pool. Thank you for allowing Amy access to your computer to try and recover her photos - as always you go the extra mile for your guests.

Room tip: All rooms highest quality. Advise requirements as not only rooms- also flats with more than one room which might be better for a family.

Return guests are our favorite! - it makes us feel that we are on the right track, and more importantly that we have new friends who want to return time and again. Thank you so much for the kind words, and we are so glad that eventually the photos were found - what a relief! Looking forward to your next visit, when you come to the beautiful Garden Route again. Hope it is for longer next time so that you can relax a little bit more, without such a hectic schedule.
Kindest regards
Dawn and the Team at Edenwood

I came here on 11th of September and will be checking out tomorrow 18th of September. I had the intention of taking day trips out of George. And that's what I did, George is a great location for that.

This Guest House is the best!! Dawn is fabulous with wanting to make every guest's stay special. She helps with directions, recommendations for restaurants, things to do.

Corne is always on top of things, wanting to make sure you have everything you need to make your stay comfortable and feeling like home and your breakfast is to your liking.

The breakfasts are wonderful with a wide range of items on the buffet table to graze on, as well as a hot freshly cooked breakfast of your choice.

I stayed in the Annex room which is a little cottage-like accommodation separate from the big house with a little kitchenette. Very comfortable and quiet.

Cordelia makes sure everything is spotless and you have all the linens, etc. that you need.

Overall, Dawn, Cordelia, and Corne are an amazing team dedicated to making your stay comfortable and special. Every guest is special to them, and I truly did feel special. I will be sad to leave tomorrow.

It has been such a pleasure to host you this past week and we hope we have contributed just a little to your "African Adventure", with happy memories. We certainly hope that all the other travel plans around our beautiful country work out to plan, and that you get home end of October tired but exhilarated from all you have seen and learnt about our culture. We also think that as a guest your were "Absolutely fabulous", and so brave to tackle such a long trip alone. Travel safe.
Very kind regards
Dawn, Corné and Cordelia

Great B and B - excellent host and manager very attentive to all details. Breakfast was more than satisfactory with a good selection. The room was well decorated and clean with all necessary additions to make it feel like home from home. Great location.
