Elliott accomodation.
« on: August 03, 2019, 04:18:49 pm »
Hi Guys and girls,

We are 3 chaps going on a bike trip early in October this year, and I am after sleep-over place for 3 persons.

I do not know Elliott, so have to rely on you Eastern Cape people to point us in the right direction.

We are looking for a one-night sleep-over on the Saturday evening of the 05 October 2019.

Thank you.

Thanks, I have been to Mountain Shadows on a Pielkoppe/TittyTwister rally, and from there I did a hectically fast descend of Bastervoetpad on the back of a BMW GS1100.

I kid you not, with Fred Lewis as rider, it was quite something.

I just thought that as I wanted to travel from Mosselbay to Himeville, sleeping over in Elliott, I wanted something not too far off the route.

But 18Km is not bad, I think I'll go for Mountain Shadows.

Please, if you know of any other places, shout!

Thank you Smugs, was your late boet perhaps Glen? I have never met him, but remember of his passing away in the early years of me arriving on this forum, and how popular he was.

Danie, Mountain Shadows is 'n great plek om te bly maar vir hierdie trip is dit bietjie uit die pad uit.
Daar is baie gaste huise op Maclear,  miskien 'n makliker opsie oppad na Himeville.

Maclear is probably your best bet of all the towns in that area. At least the farmers (and the local Spar owner?) keep the town fairly tidy.

Elliot, Ugie and Mt. Fletcher are dumps.

Agreed, although we stayed at a good guesthouse in Ugie a while ago but yes Maclear probably best bet.

Thanks guys, I will concentrate on Mclear, it being less out of the way.

Times like this when you wish you could take off a year, then I'd take my son up/down Bastervoetpad too. What beauty!

Yes Glen ran the country club in Elliot.
