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

Would love to return and would recommend this as being in the... More

Lovely place for a much needed weekend away. Spotless, reasonable and beautiful serene views too. If you find yourself going to White River, be sure to use White House Lodge. We got more than our money's worth.

A lovely location in the hills above white river with comfortable rooms, lovely grounds and exceptional attention to detail. My favourite aspect was the proper coffee! So easy to do, yet so seldom found in SA guesthouses. Only downside was that WiFi was extremely weak and slow so went back to using 3G on the phone.

We could not find any fault at this B & B. Very friendly and helpful hosts. I will recommend this B & B. Must be one of the best that we have stayed at. ...............................................

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very nice. The rooms were big and really clean (everything was so clean you can eat on the floor!). The food was a real german breakfast. We were given the best tips on sight seeing and restaurants. Every detail was well organised, from the opening of the gate, the selling of drinks... More

Hosts were superb, efficient and responsive to every question (and we had many, about things to do, places to go, packing handi-crafts, etc). Location is convenient (7 KM) for the Mpumalanaga (Nelspruit) Kruger International (MPK) airport. Fantastic views. Excellent breakfasts. Family friendly.
