Whispering Oaks is a real gem in the bustling town of George. I was frantically looking for accommodation in George for myself and my mom over the Festive Season. My mom has impaired vision and walks with a walker and is anxious about staying at new places, due to her lack of vision and mobility. From the moment we spoke...

I travel often and widely as a tour guide and am sometimes really pleasantly surprised by my accommodation (not always). Staying at Whispering Oaks was a really pleasant surprise. Situated in a really central location just a few hundred meters safe walk to a selection of restaurants, this elegant and well-maintained 1930's mansion has been a guesthouse for quite a...

Me and my 4-year-old son had the great opportunity of staying at this fantastic guest house in George along the Garden Route while vising relatives in the area. We can now conclude that we definitely had found the perfect place for our almost two weeks’ long stay in George in the beginning of January 2017.. Whispering Oaks have different rooms...

We stayed at whispering oaks for two days over Christmas. This guesthouse is situated in the middle of town close to a church and a library. The rooms are very comfortable with Cloud 9 mega flex mattresses which are in my opinion the most comfortable you get. The hosts are really sweet and welcoming.

It's a nice place to stay, hosts are super friendly and accommodating. They all welcomed us with a big smile in their faces. The interior is fabulous, 'Elle Decoration' should come for a visit and take some pictures. Breakfast is fantastic!! Only downside: walls are too thin, you can hear what's going on next door. Host's baby is super sweet,...

We suddenly decided to go to the garden route in the middle of the festive season. All accommodation was fully booked out. We still managed to find this one in George. Nice, neat. It provided us will all we needed for and it was a good value for money.
