                              I enjoyed my stay very much. Great food, beautiful room and nice people. The only thing that was to my dislike was the fact that it said wi-fi in the rooms, but unfortunately my room had no signal. I did inform the owner and she said she will get someone out to sort out that problem. That is the only reason I don’t give a 5 star rating

                              I hadn't been in Harrismith in 5 years and was shocked by the town's deteriorization! You should reconsider all your listings there. I did not feel safe and will only "pass through" in the future. It's obvious that Shady Pines once enjoyed glory days in the past, but no longer...like many others in the town. Terribly sad, but grim reality!

                              We loved everything about this establishment: The old architecture, historic fittings & old-style accommodation. We found the hosts accommodating & helpful & the breakfast spread was sublime. We would recommend this as a stay-over for the journey from Gauteng to KZN.

                              Really beautiful little spot in Harrismith with very friendly and helpful staff. The only downside was the cat that meowed all night right outside our room - very little sleep because of this.

                              Awesome place. Would stay there again.
