Lovely spacious accommodation with good beds. Kevin and Lynda are warm welcoming hosts who bend over backwards to help you in any way they can. Their backpackers is well looked after and it is a pleasure to stay there. It is centrally situated and there is a lot to do around the area.

The backpackers was immaculate, a very pretty house with loads of space and the single that I stayed in was lovely. For sure will visit next time I pass through the wine route of...

We got stuck at a garage in the main road when our car broke down! The friendly staff at the garage recommended we call the Backpackers as it was already 9pm. As there is no cab service in town, Kevin offered to come fetch us from the garage. We were treated to comfy beds, warm hospitality and amazing kindness! Thank...

Lovely place! Very good! I strongly recommend this place to stay. I was there with a group of friends, some of them from other countries such as England, Australia and Brazil. If I go to Robertson again, this is the place I will stay.

The fact that the word backpacker is in the title of this place almost doesn't do it justice to how good it actually is. Booked a private room here with my girlfriend just to check out the wineries for an afternoon and had a splendid time. The staff on hand there were so gracious in taking care of us and...
