Extremely comfortable accommodation ,excellent food and service. Stayed there for a night prior to heading to Kruger Park, and then again for a night afterwards. Susan and Detlef were so accommodating, the rooms and grounds are beautiful with great views. The breakfast and dinner were absolutely superb, and all advice given to us by Susan and Detlef was spot on.... More

Thanks for the Hosts at White House Lodge - you were very helpful and it was a terrible shame that Lufthansa delayed our flight by 24 hours thus making our booked stay with you impossible. We have no hesitation in recommending your customer service in staying up late in case we could have arrived very, very late in the night... More

I booked this place based on reviews on this page. It delivers everything it promises and more. Perfect stay and a shame we could only be there for 1 night. There was even a big fridge available for guests and a wine cellar and honesty bar. Breakfast was excellent. Can't fault the place; a definite thumps up!

Great value for money, friendly reception, neat and relaxing Great view over the surrounding area. Nice place to stay over for 1 night, if travelling towards Kruger and need to take a break if you had a long drive. Staff is knowledge of the area and assisted in planing our route to the Kruger, with the best roads!

We stayed in the Luxury Cottage for one night, and it was the perfect place to relax. The scenery was beautiful, the hosts gracious, the breakfast scrumptious, and the dogs lovable! A great start for our holiday!

We stayed here because it is conveniently near the airport. We had an extremely warm welcome, and beautiful food, both in the evening and the following morning. The White House Lodge building is very quirky and interesting, and there is good library of books to browse. It's also in a stunning setting on top of a big hill.

We did not arrive in Jo'burg until late in the afternoon. We immediately set out in our rental car to the White House Lodge just outside Nelspruit. After sleeping 2 nights on planes, getting lost leaving Tambo Airport, and suffering challenging driving / traffic to the west of Nelspruit, we finally arrived at the Lodge. It was late, after 8pm.... More
