We stayed in La Roca guest House 1 night prior to going into Kruger, and 1 night on our way out. The little guest house is beautiful! Each room is decorated uniquely and modernly.

We could not have made a better choice. We have stayed at another guest house in Nelspruit but nothing beats La Roca. Arrived late afternoon, had a good friendly welcome and taken to our guest house -the Executive Suite - spacious, well equipped, self-catering accommodation. Had a good nights sleep - clean - free wi-fi, breakfast was more than 5... More

Decided to change my accommodation for Nelspruit from hotel to a B&B & settled on staying at La Roca. This was based on price & the pics from booking.com look quite nice, but pics can be deceiving. It was a surprising, pleasant & peaceful stay, rooms was clean, but my pillow took a bit getting used too. There's a breakfast... More

Arriving 5pm & departing 5am the following day did not really allow us to do justice to the pleasant overnight stay we had at La Roca.

Friendly, clean, interesting gardens, lovely view, wonderful pool.... we stayed as a family and it was lovely to feel that our 6 year old daughter could run around in the gardens and swim as if she was at home...

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.
