Got the details from the 'Greenwood Guide' when we considered breaking up the distance with a stop at George during our trip along the Garden Route.
Although the town is quite industrial, it's well worth the effort. The people were fantastic, and some of the sights are beautiful.
Fairview is a treasure of a place. The downstairs room that we had was fabulously decorated with a well-stocked fire for the evening, complimentary port to truly 'warm the cockles', and hosts who were ever-attentive and helpful.
Breakfast was an absolute delight, and rounded off a fabulous, if all too brief, stay.
If you can time it right, drop-in when the annual cheese and wine festival is on (which we did). It put's the good food show to shame. P.S. Don't drive to it!!!!!!
