We stayed for only one night and found the location great and the rooms very pleasant. It was just a few minutes drive to a good restaurant (and others are also close by). Nice setting on a hill, good sized pool and a lovely relaxation area adjacent to the pool. Rooms 1-3 have very flimsy curtains and very strong security... More

My husband and I have stayed at Shandon Lodge numerous times because we have friends in the area. Whenever we stay with Tony and Jane we immediately relax and settle in. They are incredibly welcoming, making us feel like we are guests in their home. At the same time, the rooms offer privacy and very well kitted out for total... More

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

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.
