4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I recently spent a long weekend here. The location is perfect. The staff were very friendly. The room was lovely and clean, with all needs being met. A lovely little balcony to sit and have coffee or sundowners. The breakfast was very good. All in all I had a very pleasant stay here and would definitely come again.

Highly recommended- it's a fantastic place, really nice comfortable rooms with luxurious amenities, the grounds are all scenic garden with lots of trees, flowers, rocks and there's a great view over mountains surrounding Nelspruit from the breakfast room. Breakfast was really good too! The best feature is the hosts Rob and Marlea, we booked a room thinking transfers from the... More

Our party of three spent an enjoyable time (two nights) at La Roca. The breakfasts were superb. Amanda could not have been more helpful. Many times during the day we heard the sound of purple-crested turaco close by and marvelled at their beauty as they flew about in the grounds. Dinner was not available and the restaurant nearby was a... More

Safe guesthouse. Hospitality was awesome. Very friendly staff,and respectful. Love the breakfast vanilla muffins! There is a gentleman who referred to me by name, amazing! He is either the owner or manager. I loved that he knows who is occupying their rooms.Once again the staff was more than wonderful,from the security guard to the cook!!

We stayed in the self-catering apartment called the Executive suite. It was amazing. Stunning views, massive open plan rooms, high ceilings, open fire, large bath, separate bedroom with door for toddler (with cot provided). Really was lovely. Amazing breakfasts with friendly staff. They were very good about our disaster prone toddler. Only downside for us was no children's channels on... More

A lovely b&b located just outside the town centre of Nelspruit, which is less than 1hour drive to the southern gate of Kruger National Park. We stayed in what must have been the honeymoon suite and enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast at a very reasonable price (the exchange rare worked in our favour). Staff were exceedingly polite.

One night in our trip between JNB and the Kruger Park. Nice large room, king size bed, shower, bath. We appreciated the breakfast outside, with beautiful view, terrace and pool. We highly recommend this place !

My husband and I agree this was our favorite lodging (of the 6 places we stayed) while in South Africa. BEAUTIFUL view, comfortable bed, warm on a winter's night, and GOOD wifi. We only wish we had've known how nice it was so we could've been there sooner to enjoy the view!
