“A nice stopover on your travels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2011

In November 2010, we stayed two nights in Edenwood Guesthouse during a four week trip through South-Africa. The owners Dawn and Stan were on holiday themselves and we were received by their daughter and shwon to our room. This room was a very large en-suite family room with a private kitchen. George is not directly on the main tourist route along the coast and that probably why the cost of accommodation is lower than in Plettenberg Bay, Knysna of Mosselbay. But at 600 Rand a night (breakfast excluded because the owners were away), the very clean and spacious room was a bargain. Edenwood also has a small but lovely swimming pool. There is free use of the Internet as well. The place itself in a suburb close to nature and many trails but far away from the centre, but we had a car, so this didn't constitute a problem. But be advised, you have to drive if you want to go to the restaurants and pubs in York street. I would recommend a stay at Edenwood as a clean and affordable Guesthouse to anyone who is thinking of visiting George for a couple of nights and doesn't want to pay the outrageous rates some places directly at the coast charge. And the coast is less than half an hour driving away and George gives you an excellent access to the surounding mountains and wonderful scenic routes over the passes.

Dawn and Stan were our most hospitable hosts on the garden route. As this was our first drive through the area their tips on best routes and places of interest made our holiday more memorable. Having breakfast in the sun room overlooking beautiful gardens was a great start to the day.

We had a lovely stay at the B&B from Stan and Dawn. They are warm people to meet and give you great advise. We got some great info from them what was nice to see in the area, they advised restaurants and made some bookings for us. The breakfast was superb, every morning we had fresh fruit, yoghurt, eggs and bacon, etc.
My advice if you're in the area of George. If you want to stay in a B&B for a reasonable price, and get all the benefits mentioned above go these folks.

I stayed in the lemon tree cottage at edenwood for two weeks whilst on business in George. The accomodation was first class and extremely comfortable which made for a very relaxed stay. The location is ideal , peaceful and in a pleasant neighbourhood just below the outeniqua mountains about ten minutes drive from the airport. All amenities are totally accessible with just a short drive to recommended restaurants , shops and beach etc. The owners Dawn and Stan are well travelled , informative and extremely pleasant ,breakfast each day was cooked , continental , BOTH! - whatever you fancied all tailored to suit
This is a great place to stay if travelling along the garden route and i would recommend to couples , families etc - the hospitality was excellent
