A positively wondrous viewing sight(and restaurant) for the edge of Hogsback. I went on a first date there and it was "the best first date" my partner had been on.

Absolutely lovely service. For lunch as well as dinner really great. They have weird closing times though, so keep that in mind.

Did not want to leave this breathtakingly beautiful mountain 'edge'! Cottages are very comfortable with a lovely warm fireplace for that cold hogsback night! Staff were very friendly and accommodating! Gift shop was lovely to visit! The dinner and breakfast were delicious! An excellent place to spend a honeymoon!

We went to see the labyrinth and its beautiful. We went to view the edge, magnificent views! Absolutely gorgeous. We did not stay at the place but we had supper. The food is okay, the service is good but the prices are high. We will definitely be coming back to stay for a weekend

One of the most romantic spots imaginable, with spectacular views into the valley and of waterfalls. But also suited to families and anyone looking for natural beauty and good food. When we were there the mist came in and the gardens and labyrinth looked very mysterious; an excuse to get the fire going in our cottage.

We spent the weekend in THE PEAR for Leon and Annemie's wedding and loved it. We will be back but this time I am hoping to stay in HEAVEN'S VIEW. The meals were great, that salmon with poached egg breakfast is out of this world. Great Cappuccinos too. The staff were excellent and the all the catering for the wedding was top notch... I can't remember when is the last time I actually enjoyed the food at a wedding so much.

The wait was long, but worth the while. Excellent food all round. The ribs are to die for! The mint lamb pie was also very good, balanced flavors, well cooked pastry. Everything had a fresh & authentic feel to it, including the hand cut chips. Maybe order ahead to save some time... Service was excellent and our waiter Lungi was attentive & courteous. Good coffee too

review by Manjush Mathews

"5 Star"

We stayed in the Edge self catering ronadavel which sleeps 2 in a king size. The view was spectacular, the rondavel immaculately clean and the location wonderfully secluded, even though they have a number of cottages in the area, not once did we feel like we had any neighbours. The perfect romantic getaway.

review by Kerith Platts, South Africa

"Amazing stay"

Absolutely beautiful; wonderful atmosphere. Beautiful fireplace, unbelievable food, and good service.
