We were received very warmly, the place looks beautiful and clean. There were also quite flexible with the breakfast, in that it was served at our preferred time (and I must add, the breakfast was always on point).

Everything is on details. And details are there : very cleaned rooms, with all accessories for your comfort: a tea cup point with homemade cookies, umbrellas available in case of rain. Very quiet nights, excellent homemade breakfast with scones and bread. Very good welcoming. À sweety guest house

We got a warm welcome, and some help with correcting a reservation. Which was really representative for the host during our stay, as she was very enthusiastic to inform us about great spots in the environment, traffic info and making great suggestions. We had to leave early but were well foreseen with an early cold and warm breakfast, including healthy...

Whalesong is the best B&B we have stayed at during our 5 years in SA. Its excellent position, wonderful structure and a staff that assists you in all that you may need or wish make it your best pick if you ever decided to enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park.
