Great experience! Leaves Lodge is well located in a serene environment and offers a true 5 star experience. The setting of the room suits both business or personal requirements. The ambiance is awesome!

Leaves Lodge is situated in a quaint area offfering the tranquility one needs. > However, when you living in the main area of the reception you can literally all movements in the kitchen and reception areas due to the large gap at the bottom of the door and the lack of sound proof doors which wakens you quite early in...

We stayed over on a business trip and were very happy with the standard and quality of the luxury unit we stayed in. The unit served all our stayover needs and was very clean and well fitted out. The furniture fittings and lighting was of exceptional quality. I was disturbed by the outside lighting shining into the room at noght... More

I Loved it there, I stayed in the Glass Stone room, it was a very nice open homely feeling room. The breakfasts were amazing. The staff very friendly and helpful. There was easy and secure parking for the car I hired. The massages were so relaxing. I'd stay there again for sure!

The guesthouse is very pretty, but I found the atmosphere very sterile. The room was well appointed, but the space for the toilet very small and uncomfortable. Despite asking for an ashtray, I never received one. After being assigned a parking bay, I went to get some dinner only to return and find that my parking bay had been taken.... More

They have 24 hour security guard to protect your vehicle while staying over. My car's window broke and the owner allowed me to use his vehicle to see customers whilst my car's window was being repaired. He did not expect anything in return and was extremely helpful in finding a suitable repair shop. I will definitely stay over at this... More

Service was good from arrival to departure; friendly, available and helpful. The room was tastefully furnished but lacked in terms of privacy. One could hear guests in the adjoining room moving about and chatting. It was dull and in the background, but the doors are certainly not soundproof. Not made for intimacy... The bed itself was awful. A new mattress... More

Thank you for the comment – your feedback is essential to aid us in improving our service. We have a wide variety of rooms and certainly have a few options for intimacy, there are rooms designed to cater for honeymoon couples, which are set away from the house, with a private pool and immersed in the indigenous flora. The doors... More

Excellent service, and wonderful spacious rooms. Definitely a place to stay. I would recommend this to anyone whether traveling for business or family reasons. They have done a upgrade for me once to the presidential suite for no charge, and was amazing. I stay there every time I go to Nelspruit.

On our wedding anniversary we have search for one of the larger rooms in Nelspruit and found one in this lodge (presidential suite). When we arrived, the lady who welcomed us claimed to be the largest, but after we see the front room, we realized that there was an even bigger and that was what we had seen in the... More

Thank you for your review and while we understand your frustration, I think this stems from a misunderstanding from the initial booking – it does appear that there was another confirmation and we had to refund the difference. As mentioned, the manager made every effort to refund the difference and also find a similar, luxury room that is very similar... More
