"Very disappointed with the accommodation and the restaurant for the money we paid, which incidentally was the most expensive after traveling throughout SA for a month from George to Hermanus and Kleinmond, to Cape Town, to Paternoster, to Paarl, to De Rust, to Rock Cottage outside Pearston, and then to what we thought would be the highlight of our trip, The Edge Mountain Resort.The self catering unit (Firefly) had substandard utensils including badly cracked mugs, unheard of in this industry. The dish cloths were very old and grubby.The restaurant service took almost an hour to deliver when there were hardly any people there, and one meal had to be sent back as it was appalling. The units were not serviced and only if we asked for it would they come and service.Understandably it was very quiet and the restaurant was closed, I guess due to lack of clients, and the following day later in the afternoon there was no one there, not even for a hot chocolate, I guess our rates should also have been adjusted due to poor and lack of services.The place is very beautiful (Hogsback) but I guess due to the unsatisfactory experience, the adverse weather was all we needed to leave one day early sacrificing R1300.00.It would be very difficult to recommend this resort to anyone."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and brought our two dogs with who fitted in well. The accommodation was clean and tidy and enjoyed our dinner meals at the restaurant.A bonus was having the Parkrun starting right at the entrance and joined the run on the Saturday morning on a achallenging and very pretty setting"

"Our party of three enjoyed the By The Way Cottage very much. it was much more spacious than we expected it to be with all the necessities we needed in the two bedroom house. I would definitely recommend it to people looking for good self catering accommodation."
"What an amazing experience."

"The town was cute and the place we stayed at was spectacular. We arrived late and plans were made so that we could get to our place. This was amazing and very helpful. The place also sent someone to help us as we got stuck on a mountain. Very friendly and helpful. The view was also amazing and the place was extraordinary. We had everything we could have possibly needed and had a ball. Will stay here again in a heart beat."

"Our stay at The Edge was very short, but the time we spent there was lovely. The accommodation was very cozy and clean. The receptionist was very friendly and assisted us when there was an issue with the booking. The restaurant on site is very convenient."

"We very much enjoyed our stay at The Edge in a cottage. Very comfy mini-flat with well stocked kitchen. Good food at the restaurant when we didn't want to cook. Friendly service and enjoyed our time in Hogsback very much! Though it was very cold one night, a wonderful fire in the fireplace helped a lot!"
