As it has always been, Whispering Pines is our top secret romantic hideaway. Alex and the staff looked after us in their normal five star fashion, breakfast, lunch and dinner was as always prepared with care and presented with class, and spending time with a bottle of wine under the big tree, I can't find the words to describe how...

We had the most relaxing fabulous stay at Whispering Pines Country Estate. The rooms are spacious and we loved sitting on our private deck watching the abundant bird life. The food is spectacular and Alex and his staff went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. From spa treatments to relaxing in hammocks under the enormous trees was fantastic....

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...

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....

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...

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.
