Het baie lekker gebly.

Die chalet se uitsig oor die vallei was asemrowend. Hoewel ons baie lekker gebly het, voel ek dat om R9 vir 5 nagte te betaal, die geriewe ietwat moderner en nuwer moet wees. Sekere goed in die chalet kort bietjie vernuwing. Veral klein detail soos 'n broodbord sal handig wees. Die stortrakkie van plastiek werk nie lekker nie en alles val uit. Dalk 'n ekstra paar handdoeke, want dit het gereën en het nie vinnig droog geword nie. Dalk net weer 'n bietjie vernuwing sal die plekkie na 'n beter status laat voel. Met die eerste aand se ete in die restaurant was ons ook teleurgesteld, want die dis op die spyskaart wat ons wou gehad het, was nie beskikbaar nie. Toe ons 'n wyn wou bestel, was die woorde ook "Sorry, we don't have that", en toe ons 'n derde keer 'n sjerrie wou bestel, ook die woorde "Sorry, we don't have this". Die pad het baie slaggate vanaf die ingang van die dorp tot by die Retreat. Mense moet net seker maak hulle het 'n motor wat hoog is, anders gaan dit nie lekker werk nie.

Had a great stay.

The chalet's view of the valley was breathtaking. Although we had a very nice stay, I feel that to pay R9 for 5 nights, the facilities should be somewhat more modern and newer. Certain things in the chalet need a bit of renovation. Especially a small detail like a bread plate will be handy. The plastic shower rack does not work well and everything falls out. Maybe an extra pair of towels as it was raining and didn't dry quickly. Maybe just a little renovation will make the place feel like a better status. With the first night's meal in the restaurant we were also disappointed, because the dish on the menu we wanted was not available. When we wanted to order a wine, the words were also "Sorry, we don't have that", and when we wanted to order a sherry a third time, also the words "Sorry, we don't have this". The road has many potholes from the entrance of the town to the Retreat. People just have to make sure they have a car that's tall, otherwise it's not going to work well.

Totale rustigheid en skoonheid op sy beste.

Asemrowend mooi. Stil en rustig. Ons was baie vriendelik ontvang. Heerlike ete by die restaurant geniet. Die huisie waarin ons gebly het was ten volle toegerus met alles wat ons nodig gehad het en 'n bonus was die kaggel in die kamer. Ons kan die verblyf hoog aanbeveel.

Beautiful surroundings, good restaurant, friendly service.

We had a nice stay at The Edge Mountain Retreat, and we made good use of the fireplace and firewood that were supplied because the weather was cold and rainy. We had dinner in the restaurant, and the food was very good, as was the service. Friendly staff. At this time of year in January, the gardens around the guest house were full of the most beautiful hortensias. We can warmly recommend The Edge Mountain Retreat, and Hogsback is a very special place to visit.

Wou Hogsback-area verken.

Nadat ons onluste trotseer het op pad na Hogsback, was dit 'n heerlike afpak en ontspan by "The Edge" - lieflike akkommodasie met alles wat nodig is. 'n Pragtige omgewing waar mens ure kan spandeer. Ook heelwat te doen in die omgewing. Ons het heerlike ontbyt in die restaurant geniet. Sal beslis weer terugkom!

Elektriese kombers en kaggelvuur was fantasties. Al wat kort is WiFi in die chalets. Ja, ek weet die WiFi is gratis in die restaurantarea sonder enige verpligting om iets te bestel, maar die feit dat daar nie WiFi in die chalets is nie, kos The Edge 'n ster.

Hogsback bly vir my een van my groot gunsteling plekke om te besoek.

The Edge is besonders. Voel die beddegoed van die eenheid kort aandag. Lyk oud en afgeleef.

Ongelooflike uitsig, rustige omgewing en goed ingerigte chalet.

Die enigste negatiewe punt is die slegte grondpad na die oord.

It’s a nice place.

The location is beautiful. The restaurant was great and the staff there very professional, polite and friendly. The layout of the cottage was lovely but unfortunately the toilet was leaking and all that had been done to fix it was to put a plastic tray underneath, which overflowed and so the floor was constantly wet. The electricity kept tripping and we couldn’t use most of the lights, fridge, kettle or microwave. They were apologetic when I reported it, though.

Was heerlik! Ons het lekker voor die kaggel gesit en rooiwyn drink terwyl ons na die reën op die dak geluister het!

Ons het heerlik gebly. Die huisie was skoon en netjies en het al die nodige geriewe gehad. Die uitsig is pragtig. Was geseënd om 2 Knysnaloeries voor ons deur te sien en ook die Kaapse Pappegaai. Die Labyrinth was heerlik om te stap, vroeg oggend in die mis.

Wonderlik en rustig.

Die cottage was heel netjies, maar ongelukkig was die bed baie ongemaklik en die matras cover was seker baie lanklaas gewas en was vol kolle. Verder was heerlik met pragtige uitsigte en die kos in die restaurant was heerlik. Sal beslis weer daar gaan oorbly.

I wish all the people I know could stay at The Egde Mountain Retreat for a night or more.

The Edge Mountain Retreat is exactly what it says. The accommodation is on the edge of a mountain range around Hogsback and to stay there is to feel like you are at a resort. The comfortable atmosphere created by the staff makes you feel immediately at home and welcome and the pampering of a warm blanket and a fireplace in the room made us wish we could have been stuck in Hogsback for at least a week be. The fact that there is an on-site restaurant is another plus for The Edge.

We stayed in a lovely unit, Birchwood, and were very comfortable. The weather was freezing so we were grateful for the mohair blanket and wall heater. The meals are delicious and reasonable and the staff all very helpful. Just worried that the road conditions will soon make it impossible for normal vehicles to reach this beautiful spot.

Netjiese blyplek in uitstekende natuur.

Alhoewel daar talle verblyfopsies in Hogsback is, is The Edge baie goed geleë naby die rand van die kloof. Ons eenheid was langs 'n bos, wat 'n unieke atmosfeer geskep het. Die restaurant bied nie goeie waarde vir geld nie (niks fout met die kos nie, net te min vir te veel) en ons het omtrent 'n uur gewag op 'n aand wat nie besig was nie. Dalk beter om in The Edge te bly, en in die dorp te gaan eet. Daar is verskeie eenhede beskikbaar by The Edge teen billike tariewe.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

Neat place to stay in excellent nature.

Although there are numerous accommodation options in Hogsback, The Edge is very well located near the edge of the gorge. Our unit was next to a forest, which created a unique atmosphere. The restaurant does not offer good value for money (nothing wrong with the food, just too little for too much) and we waited about an hour on a not busy night. Maybe better to stay in The Edge, and eat in town. There are several units available at The Edge at reasonable rates.

Lovely venue, excellent surroundings.

The Edge is a lovely venue with rolling hills, clouds and plant life. The labyrinth is phenomenal and became a daily routine. My only negative comment is that the best view from the Sunbird house is through the toilet window, other than that staff were great, food was good, even if a bit pricey and I can only imagine what this must look like in winter. We will be back for one of the other units later in the year.

'n Gemaklike huis reg op die rantjie van die krans!

In vergelyking met ander bestemmings in SA was ons verbaas om hierdie tipe skoonheid en luuksheid te kry vir die prys. Ons stap net 'n paar tree uit ons huis uit, dan is ons op 'n asemrowende krans wat uitkyk op 'n vallei oortrek met 'n woud.

'n Asemrowende plek om op mens se moet-sien-lysie te sit!

Edge Mountain Retreat was uitstekend. 'n Heerlike klein huisie (Sugarbird), weggebêre in die berge in 'n woud. Waarvoor meer kan mens vra? Edge Mountain het sy eie restaurant met heerlike maaltye en groot gronde met pragtige uitsigte en stappe. Die tuine is baie mooi en goed versorg. Diens is ook puik. Sugarbird-eenheid was skoon en gerieflik met al die geriewe wat 'n selfsorg-eenheid moet hê. Die gesing van Knysna loeries by mens se venster elke oggend is 'n besliste bonus. Dit is stil, privaat en beslis 'n plekkie om rustig te kan wees.

A breathtaking place to put on one's must-see list!

Edge Mountain Retreat was excellent. A lovely little house (Sugarbird), tucked away in the mountains in a forest. What more could one ask for? Edge Mountain has its own restaurant with delicious meals and large grounds with beautiful views and steps. The gardens are very beautiful and well maintained. Service is also great. Sugarbird unit was clean and comfortable with all the amenities a self catering unit should have. The singing of Knysna lullabies at one's window every morning is a definite bonus. It is quiet, private and definitely a place to be peaceful.

Dit was net een groot plesier om in hierdie lieflike plek te kon bly. Goeie ontvangs, gawe personeel en die mooiste uitsig. Lekker cosy gewees. Al wat pla is die toestand van die strate in Hogsback, maar dit het niks met The Edge te doen nie.
