On arrival we were greeted and shown around very efficiently. Our hostess was extremely considerate and helpful - the breakfast buffet was outstanding and the well-stocked honestly bar was impressive. Lovely view from atop the hill. A definite revisit when in the area again.

Beautiful place. We were a family of five. It felt like we were home away from home. The breakfast was not fancy but was good value for money. The service was personalised without being intrusive. We will definitely recommend the place to friends and family.

This is why I love Trip Advisor! I had read the overwhelmingly positive reviews and decided to stay here one night on our way between Johannesburg and several days on safari on Kruger. As one or more previous reviewers have said, it's unfortunate that we stayed only one night and didn't get to see the landscape by day. We had... More

We really enjoyed our stay at White House Lodge and would recommend it to anyone. The owners are very helpful and professional. The property is located well and the breakfast in the mornings were really value for money and well prepared with a personal touch.

I chose White House Lodge for my stay based on the overehelmingly positive reviews. I trusted such reviews once before in my travels and it paid off big. Equally so in this case. Everything about this stay was perfect. It is absolutely beautiful. The grounds are so large and impressive. Beautiful vistas in every direction. Susann is warm and kind,... More

White House Lodge A beautiful, comfortable, clean place to stay with friendly hosts. The property is gorgeous and there is an exquisite view from the swing - we must have spent at least a couple hours just savoring the view! The swimming pool looked very inviting but given that it was winter season it was a bit on the colder... More

My reviews of our holiday places are a little late, from Sept 2014 but better late than never. WH Lodge was a great stay in every way and super value. The bedroom was comfortable with a balcony and view of the grounds, toiletries provided as were tea making facilities and hairdryer, the air con worked really well too. The guest... More

This is a very pleasant guesthouse on the outskirts of White River, with a nice big garden, and peaceful views over the valley. Susann and Detlef are very welcoming hosts, and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. For example, I was there with a friend to compete in a local bike race, and they got up... More

Peaceful surounding with beautiful views over the valley! Very good bed, everything you need and more, in the room and bathroom. Very good wines! Great breakfast with a touch of German hospitality! Loved it!
