Best service staff I have ever experienced. The place is not fancy but it has all the right amenities (including wood fire place in the rooms). It's peaceful, has isolated and private rooms, with great comfort-food type meals. Highly recommended for work outings or romantic excursions.

What an amazing weekend away. We had been there 10 years ago and planned another trip. We didn't think it was possible to improve on the excellent service and food that we received, but we were wrong. The service and food was outstandingly. The staff were so accommodating and so friendly. The rooms was so clean and comfortable. Thank you... More

Whispering Pines hosted a corporate retreat that I led this last week. We had an excellent time overall. A particular highlight was the quality and generosity of the cuisine, which was superb with fulsome breakfasts (continental and English options) and creative, well executed and tasty lunch and dinner menu items. The wine list is good and very well priced indeed.... More

We were staying at a terrible establishment in the area, and to salvage our anniversary started looking for a place to go for dinner to get away from this said horrible place. We stumbled across Whispering Pines. My husband spoke to Heinrich and he was so helpful and extremely pleasant. We decided that was our place. We were there earlier... More

After we were unable to secure accommodation at WP over this long weekend, we decided to try them for lunch. I can highly recommend the garlic chicken!

So good. Spent a delightful couple of days in this beautiful and tranquil area. Chalets are well fitted and comfortable. Staff are friendly and attentive. Restaurant is excellent. We spent our time relaxing at the pool and bush walking. Massage was so good. Only an hour from Johannesburg. Will definitely visit again.

Well appointed rooms set in tranquil surroundings. Attentive staff, excellent meals and lots of quiet! Beautiful forest walks and massive trees to rest under. Great spot to chill and feel spoilt. Also make use of the spa treatments to enhance your relaxation.

Relaxing stay, set in beautiful location. Welcoming, helpful staff (thank you Alex). Great for a short break. Luxury of the outside shower made the stay even more wonderful, showering will never be the same again! A few easy walks make for nice distraction.

We arrived very late in the evening so we did not have dinner which is normally included in the rate per person. ( They did deduct the dinner from the rate). The rooms are very nice, big and clean. There is a fireplace for winter to add romantic atmosphere and a aircon for the heat. The room has a big... More
