“Luxurious and private”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

The room was huge with a bath inside the bedroom and the equally spacious bathroom enclosed containing a shower, WC and basin. It was quiet, private and very pleasant to stay there. There is a stocked fridge in the room and coffee making equipment as well as all the other usual things like TV etc. The gardens are magnificent and the path to our room even crossed a Koi pond. The breakfast is marvellous and the decor is very tasteful and understated everywhere. There is a lovely pool and a good view over the city. The owner introduced himself at breakfast and the staff were all very friendly and professional. It was a true haven after a harrowing drive. Thanks for a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask to see various rooms. Avoid close to carpark.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2010

First the good. Beautiful 4 star facilities with a beautiful 4 star view of Nelspruit in a beautiful 4 star garden setting. Our room was huge and stunning (except for the pregnant bare brested carved wood torsos -- which were a little strange). Everything almost 5 star but just lacking in some quality details. So why the mixed review.? Well, the woman that checked us in made us incrediably uncomfortable. She was more concerned in our driver's German heritage, her German heritage and the owner's German heritage than she was concerned in her guests (us). It was bizzare to scarry. We didnt sleep that evening. As absolutely beautiful as it was, no way I would return. Buy hey, if you are German you might love it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Surrounded by a nature reserve, this charming owner run and managed German Gästehaus is situated in a sub-tropical garden with water features, koi ponds, breath-taking mountain views and sparkling swimming pool overlooking Nelspruit. For nature-lovers the graceful landscape cries out to be explored. You might glimpse the overzealous monkeys from the adjacent nature reserve or see a porcupine bustling through the indigenous trees. In the soft evening breeze you can gaze out over the dancing lights of Nelspruit and hear the call of wide-eyed bush-babies. We speak German, English and Afrikaans.Jörn's Gästehaus is a perfect base from which to explore the Lowveld. You are only a short drive away from the Kruger National Park and breath-taking sights such as God's Window, Blyde River Canyon, Bourke's Luck Potholes, historic Pilgrim's Rest and the pioneer village of Barberton. Jörn is a registered SATOUR guide and offers various golf tour packages around Mpumalanga. Nelspruit Golf Course is only a 1-wood and a 7 iron away from Jörns Gästehaus. ... more   less
