We had last stayed over about 19 years ago. Very little has changed - a few more stunning rooms and the trees have grown but the essentials are the same - tranquility, quirky decor in the dining room and lounge, personal service and great food. We were in room 7 - more of a mini suite with magical views over the foothills / mountain which lend the name. This place has been going for 30 years and it will no doubt go for at least 30 more. If you want quiet, intimate, understated luxury and great food this is the place. The selection of food is perfect and is complimented by a small but well - balanced and priced wine selection.
My husband and I stayed here last week as the last 4 days of a 3 week holiday to South Africa. When I saw the website and video, I knew we would love it, we weren't disappointed. The location was stunning with the Magaliese mountains making a great back drop. The food, service, staff and the owners made the stay for us. We felt totally spoilt. Nothing was too much trouble. We had room 1 which was a large room with a big en suite bath with separate shower. It was a very comfortable room, spotlessly clean. We enjoyed our morning coffee on our veranda, bird spotting. We could have have quite easily stayed longer. The gardens despite being in the middle of a drought looked very pretty. With the lake and the pool as well. I loved all the little hidden away seats where you…
Absolutely lovely place and stay. From the comfortable quiet rooms, to the delicious breakfasts and dinners in the elegantly adorned dining room. Gracious and friendly owners. The eclectic decor is a feast for the eyes and rich with history. We will definitely return!
A gay-run, gay-friendly but not gay-exclusive retreat in Magaliesberg. There are 9 rooms, of varying configurations. We went in winter so selected a room with a fireplace. The rooms and common areas are decorated in a unique way - comfortable, inviting, homely, unpretentious. John fronts the team in an intellectually challenging way. Terrence produces the superb meals - dinner is a 4 course experience. Quiet Mountain sits on a beautiful, large property so you can walk up the Magaliesberg hills if your energy level allows, or you can wander the grounds, encountering lovely plants, flowers and birds. This is a place to step off the conveyor and feed your soul for a while.
We've been six times and have always had a fantastic experience, great staff, great meals, clean rooms, great gardens, can't fault it, look forward to our next visit. John and Terence really make sure you're happy
