“Always a pleasant stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Our third stay at La Roca and all have been excellent. We loved the room over looking the nature preserve--visited by monkeys and lots of birds. The breakfast is always good and they are very accommodating.

A very pleasant, clean, welcoming place to stay. Fully recommend it, especially the dinner (that needs to be pre-ordered) and is much better than having to go out and search around Nelspruit. Very nice grounds and pool - what more do you want for a very reasonable price!

Stayed for two nights: the hospitality was warm, breakfast was delish, location was great. Not a complaint, but just to note as in another review, the floor plan is open and the bathroom doesn't have a door. I was with my three year old so not a problem, but it wouldn't have been a great set up if I had been with my older children. Would definitely go back, however!

La Roca Guesthouse is situated in a beautifully green suburb less than 2km away from the Nelspruit city centre. The backyard and dining area overlook beautiful, green mountains, the surroundings are quiet and peaceful; perfect for some downtime.
The rooms are functional and warm; they have a sitting area as well as a luxurious bath and shower. There's a balcony area with even the standard rooms which I enjoyed for most of the afternoon. The rooms exceeded my expectations.
My overall experience was just lovely and I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the second floor if possible.

I have had the opportunity to stay with La Roca recently during our stay in Nelspruit and what an experience. The initial feel was that of "other" lodges but to the contrary it was out of this world. I have also noticed that they have been awarded thge Trip Advisor Winner 2013 for the region and can concur.

The food and cuisine is unique, special and pretty good with variety every day and new "menus' ready when you are seated letting you know what you are going to be treated with.

The staff truely are a huge plus to La Roca, interested in your day's activities and pleasently helpful organizing your breakfast or supper.

They are at your begging and calling ready to assist.

The accommodation is stylish and has flair that realy touches all your senses. The ambiance is just great and has no room for improvement, with soft music, gentle lights plaing on the pool's water next to the giant rock (La Roca) casting its image into the water.

The staff also welcomed us on our arrival with a smile taking our luggage to our beautifully situated room overlooking the Bombela Mountains and gorges.

I have taken wonderful pictures during our stay and will upload them soon, so all reading this review please return to this site for an awesome picture of the best place I have stayed.

Room Tip: Room 9 is a definite "must" and be sure to request ROOM 9 on booking your stay with La Roc...
