I am a frequent traveller. Shandon lodge is simply the best in its class! It is my home away from home. The great service and friendliness of the owners always makes Shandon Lodge my first choice when travelling to Nelspruit.

As a local I have not actually stayed in Shandon but this is where I try and place my guests. Every one of them has thoroughly enjoyed their stay in an atmosphere of calm seclusion, lovely surroundings and great hospitality. I have experienced this hospitality on numerous occasions while arriving with my guests. Jane and Tony are not only convivial hosts, they are to the manner born. A truly great experience with fine food, good wine and a scotch or two!

I've now stayed at Shandon Lodge numerous times in the past six months and can call it my home away from home with extremely comfortable facilities and excellent meals prepared by Jane. It is peaceful and welcoming just what a weary traveller need after a long day behind the steering wheel. Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: The rooms that look onto the pool are fantastic!

A most welcoming environment, with superb facilities. Set in a magnificent suburb. I enjoy the comfort of the rooms, the friendly service and feeling of being 'part of the family'. It is always a pleasure to return.
