Shandon Lodge in its own right is a superb 4 star B&B with a family touch. I have had the pleasure of being friends with the owners for the previous 3 years and seen first hand the consistency of their guest philosophy. Probably makes me biased but this is not the focus of my review, it is their neighborhood commitment... More

Jane was very accommodating and a lovely host. Had a fantastic breakfast. Neighborhood was a bit noisy in terms of dogs etc. but overall a very nice experiencing. Just a tip, if you plan on braaiing make arrangements beforehand as this allows Jane to properly prepare.

Thank you for taking the time to review Shandon Lodge, sorry about the noisy evening, we are usually extremely quiet in this suburb of Nelspruit - I can only assume that the Porcupine was on a night-time forage and was causing the trouble! Luckily this is a rare occurance. Room 9 is as you said, one of the original rooms... More

When I made the reservation, I specifically asked for unlimited wi-fi as I am a photographer and need to upload photographs. Upon arrival that though the wi-fi IS available, it is not included in the cost. I would have booked at another hotel where wi-fi is free. I had to carry heavy photographic equipment to and from my car and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our Guesthouse, I must apologise for any inconveneince caused regarding your wi-fi requirements.

We received very good service at Shandon Lodge. The rooms are very neat and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was great! It's in a quiet neighborhood, thus peaceful and quiet. Will definitely recommend it.

I've been a customer at Shandon Lodge since its opening and will always go back for the friendly service, value for money and the all important personal touch. The upgrades (patio) since my last visit just further enhance the "home-away-for-home" experience of staying at Shandon Lodge.

When we arrived on the time previously indicated the front door was closed and noone answered the phone. Fortunately we were still able to get our room. The lodge is located a bit outside of Nelspruit in a quite residential area so you need to drive a few minutes to get to a restaurant. Breakfast was simply delicious. Unfortunately wifi... More
