We booked at the last minute to watch a Springbok rugby match and I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, as I am always a little concerned when there is a vacancy and everyone else is fully booked. So, what a pleasant surprise to find this beautiful B&B tucked at the top of a Nelspruit hillside. The staff are welcoming... More

Should Consider having more Breakfast Options.I would have loved to have French/ English breakfast.The rooms were clean and staff was so professional and knowledgeable of their scope of work. I enjoyed my stay and also I had requested that a Rose Wine should be in the room for my next stay.

This is a beautiful lodge in a gorgeous setting. The service is fantastic, the rooms large modern and super clean with a small but convenient kitchen and fridge stocked with soft drinks, and milk. We also got complementary wine, sherry, coffee and tea. Breakfast is plated but tasty and well presented. A great stay.
