I used this hotel as a stopping place so I could have an early morning start in the Kruger park. Lives up to the protea standard with friendly service. The food was okay, the rooms were really comfortable. I will stay here again.

Nelspruit has nothing to offer, but at least it is a gateway to Kruger. I slept one night in this hotel and it is comfortable, nice rooms, good breakfast and helpful staff. The rooms are clean and the entrance is little bit hard to find.

The stay at the hotel was comfortable. The room I was in generous and clean. The staff helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is just outside of the town and under an hours drive to The Kruger National Park.

The location is easy to find, not far from the centre of town and near a small shopping centre. The entrance is guarded and the parking is free. Check in was professional and pleasant. Our stay, however, did not start very well as we were given a room in the building where they had a huge water leak some days... More

That is what they make you do. You wait and wait for table service in the restaurant at dinner and at breakfast. Of all the Protea hotels we have stayed in on our round of South African Provincial cities this has been the most unpleasant of stay. All because of the waiting and waiting, time is no matter to some... More

I stayed at this Hotel while on business trip in January 2015. This was not my first visit to this Hotel, as I usually stay here when coming to Nelspruit. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the management of the Hotel makes you feel welcome from the start with a welcome card personally addressed to you. I ordered... More

Disappointing. Suppose to be 4 star. We were not welcomed at reception. Nobody to help carry our luggage up the stairs. Room was not aired. Wrong name on welcome card in room written in the worst handwriting. Pool tables wobbly, chairs unravelling. Screaming children in the pool splashing us wet. Hardly space to sit at pool, smoking section. Terrible view... More

We booked two rooms on the 12 December for a night in Nelspruit on route to Kruger National Park. Staff were pleasant and helpful and willingly stored our perishables in the freezer. Rooms are comfortable and of a high standard. The hotel is perfectly positioned to tour all the attractions Nelspruit has to offer. It is on route whether you... More

We stayed here two nights. This is a well managed establishment. Comfortable beds, solid internet connection, well appointed bathrooms, and outdoor areas seemed to be a notch above the other Proteas. We'll stay here again.
