“Quiet Mountain - Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

Quiet Mountain is a little treasure close to Johannesburg far away from all the noise and fuss!!! The food is divine and the service excellent!!!! Order a tray of tea and it appears within 5 mins with homemade biscuits/ cookies too!!!

The gardens are beautiful and add to the sense of peace and harmony and take the walk up the mountain - that is an experience. The G&T's with fresh sandwhichs when we got back was excellent.

John as the host is a wonder, he will make you laugh and feel most welcome! And Terence's food is outstanding - don't even try to worry about the diet when you are there :)

This was our 3rd visit and we will be back in Dec again - a rare gem!!!

Room Tip: Room 7 is divine with it's own lounge!!!!

Quiet mountain is perfect for a retreat from Joburg. A quick drive, an hour max. The grounds are immaculate and the walk up the mountain is beautiful and relaxing.The food was also absolutely delicious and all the staff were so friendly and promptly attended to any request.We will definitely be back!

A romantic weekend getaway for my partners Birthday was made just perfect by booking at Quiet Mountain. The food was phenominal, with a choice to cater to every pallet, sipping red wine by the fire in the grand lounge was wlecome. We will be back, and want to see all the gardnes in their summer beauty.

We have visited Quiet Mountain on a number of occasions and it remains the gold standard for places to escape the rat race and catch our breath. Terrence is a consummate and gracious host, each room has its own personality (room 7 is a particular favorite), the food is delicious, service excellent...in short, you couldn't ask for more. I find it odd that Budmarsh, a place we visited recently and found very disappointing, should receive a higher ranking from trip advisor...

Room Tip: Rooms 5, 6 and 7 are particularly good.

Stayed at this establishment recently for a work-related visit.
The grounds are absolutely beautiful and well maintained
Guest Rooms. Lounge and Dining Room are beautifully decorated, warm and charming with an interesting array of antiques and bric-a-brac
The food is scrumptious and beautifully presented by courteous friendly waitrons

It is a great pity then that John, one of the owners, who acts as primary host to the guests goes from being quite abrupt and abrasive on the phone to being momentarily charming and helpful and accommodating but then easily reverts to a rather irritable, impatient and abrasive way. This was discussed amongst our group as more than a few people had noticed it. Despite us being a very quiet nerdy bunch of people, John seemed quite irritated with us, he sometimes barked out instructions or unsolicited advice as though he were directing a group of young naughty children. Then he would suddenly reappear and try to be charming and accommodating for a few minutes before getting irritable again.

On the whole, as a group we agreed that while the place was really beautiful, John's manner with his guests left rather too bitter a taste for us to return.

It seems that he is a reluctant host, clearly in the wrong line of work.

Firstly, the property is called Quiet Mountain Country House and not Country Club as it is sometimes listed.

We have been regular visitors there over the past 15 years.

With quirky decor lovingly collected over years from the surrounds, the rooms are comfortable and homely. There are rooms with fire places ideal for winter, beautiful gardens with walkways for summer.

Excellent food and service too!

Tip: try room 7 for that extra special weekend away.

Quiet Mountain is a place suspended between - it buffers and cushions and nurtures and pampers. It is the quintessential Joburg weekend getaway. From the king sized bed, to the fudge in the pottery dish, to the coffee discretely delivered in the morning, to the stylishly prepared and served meals, to the unbelievable estate, to the starry night sky, to the view of the mountain that just stand there, and has done, and will do. Thank you, Terence and John, for offering your home to the weary. Step out of the rat race and into the soft, still, slow dropping of peace.
