“Exceptional !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

We just absolutely love it here! Close enough to town for ease of access but yet so quiet & peaceful, awesome food, comfortable & clean rooms, great location and terrific people - my wife and I are in the travel trade ourselves having travelled extensively across South Africa but this one comes out tops. This is now our guesthouse of choice in Nelspruit whether staying in town for business or passing through en-route to Kruger National Park. Well done to Marlea & Rob, the very hands-on owners, for getting it right every time....you guys 'La Roca'.

LaRoca is my most surprising overlook to a GuestHouse. Gourmet food, staff attention, vibe and landscape, all part of an amazing experience of travelling to Nelspruit!

A simple search for a place to ease my mind of things turned out to point me to a paradise that surpassed all expectations.
La Roca Guest House wins for its overall simplicity and beauty. It's inevitable not to feel at home and the services nothing but great.
I now know that whenever I plan to stay in Nelspruit, La Roca will be my first choice.
