We just got back from two nights at Quiet Mountain and it will definitely be a spot we return to for weekends away. The hospitality is excellent- very personal service and the staff are always on hand with whatever you need. And the food is delicious; doesn't try too hard, just really good, wholesome meals. I loved all the quirky... More

We spent two nights at Quiet Mountain. The setting is lovely, the rooms are comfortable and the food was -- with a couple of minor exceptions -- imaginative and superb. Among the culinary highlights: flavourful duck; butter, cream and yogurt from Quiet Mountain's own cows; a sumptuous English breakfast. The lounge and library are comfortable and welcoming, and a great... More

Wow, what a wonderful find. My husband and I booked to stay at Quiet Mountain to celebrate our 6 year anniversary. The farm is gorgeous with lovely gardens. My husband is a trail runner and he enjoyed running to the top of the magaliesburg - which is beautiful walking path through the property to the top of the mountain. We... More

Visited Quiet Mountain in 2001. Returned last month to find the attention to detail in every aspect from personalized service, background music, scrumptious cuisine, friendly staff and comfortable accommodation has stood the test of time. We stayed in the farmhouse which was a short walk to the main house, lush herb gardens and warm swimming pool. A must for anyone... More

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... More

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.

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... More
