Although we spent just one night at Francolin's we had a very good time there. The staff was very friendly, the room was fantastic and had enough space for us and we had a very good breakfast in the following morning.

The staff were welcoming and extremely pleasant and helpful. The standard of the room was very high, with every facility. The situation is quite stunning, and the breakfast was wonderful. An absolute must for travelers to this area.

Beautiful place, pretty view, spacious rooms and excellent service. We enjoyed our stay a lot and will certainly return to also visit the restaurant on site. Really a lodge not to miss when you stay in Nelspruit. Special thanks to Leana for the nice introduction.

Francolin Lodge must rate as one of the best places for a family to stay over.Attention to detail is great and with all you need in your unit it can be such a great stay, BUT why an open toilet! !

Beautiful big room, great view, absolutely delicious breakfast on the most beautiful veranda. Down side, there is not one children's channel on the DSTV bouquet but 9 sports ones, the main restaurant was also very disappointing, it had a stunning view but the staff was unfriendly and made us feel unwelcome.

I did a site inspection (thorough tour) of the establishment today as part of a research tour for www.africa-deluxe-tours.com. I did not stay in the lodge but had a good look at the different room types. In my opinion Francolin Lodge is an excellent option in Nelspruit. It is graded 5-star and justly so. It is in fact the twin... More

We stayed here on arrival at Nelspruit prior to a safari at Kruger, and again on our return before our flight to J'burg. We stayed in a loft room, but did not use the loft bed as the stairs were a bit steep in case we needed to get up in the night. The bathroom is open to the bedroom,... More
