Away with the Fairies Reviews

Been there 4 times & still theres so much we havent done, wow

The Venue is Absolutely Good, U get that outdoors feeling nside' Always that "excited" feeling when u arrive, & u can b sure of finding a lavender flower on ur cushion evryday as long as u stay. Very clean rooms & bedding, Sitting by the Fireplace in the huge lounge makin new traveler friend, even sharing the kitchen with Others Is a great joy. Then we all leave for Adventure round 9am & return late. The coffee shops in town are really nice, friendly, nice food, not expensive, love the vibe in town. u dont need ur car!! nothing better than walking & smelling the fresh air in the mountains & the Spring Festival is a must! its awesome!

Friendly, helpful, amazing -- awesome location, just fantastic

I visited here towards the end of March 2010 for a night, and ended up staying for 3 nights. What an amazing location!! The staff were very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. I can't comment on their hostel facilities for sleeping as we had a tent, but the kitchen and bathroom facilities were just fine. My experience in Hogsback & Away With the Fairies is very high up in my top five South African experiences, and I plan to revisit for a week next year. The party atmosphere of the bar, should you choose to partake, was fun with a great variety of people to chat too. The places I stayed after this experience left me feeling very let and disappointed over the month of my visit.

Friendly owners but be prepared

I did enjoy my time at away with the fairies. The staff was very friendly and I had a great time in the bar, but I think that one needs to know what I saw there. In the bar, people were passing pills around in plain sight, and the barman and one of the staffers were openly discussing which drugs were the best. Therefore I think that families should avoid the place. If you wish to party, go there. Do not go there for peace and quiet. Another thing I disliked was the cleaning staff. They occupied the lounge area and communal kitchen for most of the day. I couldn't really cook and then enjoy my food in the lounge as it was taken by them.

Couldn't be better

Had the pleasure of staying a couple of nights in november. Great place, great food, and even better people. Frodo's room has incredible view and a fireplace.

Awesome

I stayed here in Dec. 2007 after hiking the Amatola Trail. Excellent. Cosy lounge with fireplace, clean rooms, beautiful garden with a kickass tree house (serious bonus points), nice bar area. The only downside is that there isn't much to do in Hogsback, so I reckon after a few days you'd get bored. Apparently some nights can get quite wild; the night we were there it was very peaceful. And the chef will make you the best supper you've ever had in a backpackers, for about R40 (about US$6).

We spent the weekend camping at "Away with the fairies"and would like to share a few thoughts with you.

You have the makings of a wonderful venue.

The best part is the Hot water and the new basins.

Other than that things leave much to be desired.

There appears to be a total lack of maintenance.

For example, your septic tank cover is broken and is a health hazard.

When one visualizes "Away with the fairies" as portrayed by your web site, one expects peace and tranquility, not constant barking dogs Plus Dog-mines)and disco music until 1/4 to 4 in the morning.Not to mention wandering cattle.

As a camping venue it does not rate more than 2 out of a possible 10.

It is shocking.

I'm afraid your fairies are truly away.

One of the best backpackers in South Africa, i have had one of the best new years parties in 2005, i decided to go back in 2006, still the best, excellent chef, and overall, staff that make you feel at home. i miss the mountains and the mist....
