Thank you Janet for welcoming us and offering us heaters for the cold. Well situated within walking distance to the high street. Bedding and kitchen clean. The bathroom and towels could have a serious facelift. I do realise that it is a backpackers lodge but that is no excuse. We were two couples and we were looking forward to sitting in front of a lovely fire (it was middle of winter) but unfortunately the lounge was not available after 7pm as there was a church group which had first preference. Very basic accommodation. Other than above, we had a lovely stay in beautiful Greyton. Thanks...

We visited EcoLodge in Greyton as we were doing a hike nearby. We received a warm welcome from Janet, enjoyed the views and had a fantastic time at the amazing braai area outside.
