We received a warm welcome from our host at this impeccably maintained guesthouse. Our room was beautifully furnished, the kitchenette had everything we needed as well as extra luxuries such as an Espresso machine. It is set in a peaceful location which is conveniently close to many restaurants. I would definitely recommend Whispering Oaks.

Stayed at Whispering Oaks last week with a friend on a golfing trip. Our first impressions were that the house and rooms were beautiful and spotless. Janelle greeted us upon our arrival and showed us round the property and the facilities also recommending some eating places in the area. Janelle was lovely. She accommodated an early breakfast (which was lovely) the following morning and even cleaned the fallen leaves out the pool so I could cool down with quick swim. The property has additional lighting to cover for the load shedding albeit we didn't need to use them while we were there. There is onsite secure parking and as mentioned in other reviews there are a number of restaurant that are walkable from the property. If I were to visit George again and I hope I get the chance I would definitely make efforts to stay here again. Thanks Janell for making us welcome

Set in a relaxing environment.
Very Clean room, all modern, loved the detail of the bathroom , wonderful host.
It was well set-up-I experienced a cold and rainy George but this gem of a place was geared with aircon to heat the room. additional oil fin heater, large bed with really good linen, not forgetting the electric blanket to warm up the bed just before jumping in. Felt at home and made my stay quite easy...Thank you

Thank you for your review Meg. It's important for us to have toasty warm rooms on the cold and wet days that we sometimes have in George. I'm pleased that you had a comfortable stay and I hope that your next visit is on a sunny day to enjoy an afternoon tea on our patio.

I stayed at Whispering Oaks Guest house for two nights. Nice and comfortable room. The shower/bath is an added bonus if you want to have a relaxed bath after a long day. Since it was a business trip, the small refrigerator and microwave in the room adds value if you just want to warm something for lunch or dinner. I would like to thank Jonelle who arranged our packed breakfast that was arranged late at night for the next day as well. Great service!

Jonelle, the host, was marvelous. My wife has food issues and Jonelle went out her way to provide wonderful breakfasts for my wife. When we requested an earlier than usual breakfast she was happy to accomodate us.
The room was spacious and comfortable
There is secure parking and the building itself is rather lovely. A fie miunte walk brings you to the Hussar Grill and the Fat Fish Restaurant, both of whom served tasty meals at reasonable prices.

Returning to George we chose Whispering Oaks for our 4 night stay. The location is in walking distance to some of the recommended restaurants in George and is offering not only a stylish look made with attention to detail but also superb breakfast, friendly service and secure parking on premise. Just perfect for our stay and so it was a very good choice to visit.

Friendly staff, great service, room was spacious and tastefully furnished, breakfast with a nice touch. Went for a walk in the in the suburb with some amazing trees. Thought that the street can be noisy but the rooms was situated to the back of the property and the garden walls does an excellent noise cancelling job. All and all an excellent stay.

This was one of the best and most relaxing stay I ever experienced during my trips in South Africa. The guesthouse is centrally located in a residential area on a quiet street. Clean room, comfy beds and shiny bathroom. Tasty breakfast. The most precious asset of the guesthouse is its staff. Jonelle was always available to provide the right information and ready to help. By her friendly and open nature she made our stay memorable. Thank you!

Stayed for one night on 23 March 2023 for work, and had a lovely night, place is clean, neat and friendly staff. Breakfast was delicious and healthy. The owner was kind enough to wait till 11pm for us to arrive as our flight was delayed and only landed at 10pm that night. My room was upstairs, and it was a very comfortable stay.

My wife and I stayed for two nights at Whispering Oaks Guest House in George. The guest house is lovely and nicely located near town and on a quiet street. Jonelle, the manager, was helpful and made our stay comfortable. The breakfast was first rate and Jonelle was helpful on answering questions on points of interest in George. We would be happy to stay in this guest house again.
