I stayed at this hotel while my husband was in the hospital (unexpected part of trip) in Nelspruit. The room was very comfortable and quiet, which was appreciated. Other than breakfast, there is no food service. One evening I went up to the main building to get some ice. At 6pm the door was locked and the guard told me... More

Great place, value for money. Clean and comfortable. Owner just needs to chill a little...lol. Too in your face and too helpful-perhaps I just prefer to get peace when I travel. Very sweet lady but I like my privacy.

I stayed here for two nights and it was really comfortable and clean. I was welcomed by the owner and assisted with my luggage. the view from the deck is stunning. Overall it was a pleasant stay, with friendly staff and a delicious decent breakfast. I would definitely come back here again.

Great as a base for visiting the low veld & the Kruger Park. Room was big, neat, practical & clean, but a little dark. Service was accommodating. Lovely deck for Sundowners. Only serves breakfast, but there are plenty places to dine within a short drive.

We stayed here on our way out of Kruger National Park. Unfortunately we arrived as it was getting dark and the street lights were out due to a power cut. It was a little difficult to find the hotel. The only other problem was that there was no dinner served on the premises. We had to leave again on dark,... More

My fiance and I slept there Friday night on a rainy day on a business visit, after a long trip from Rustenburg. The room was a delight, clean and tranquil. We woke up to a decent english breakfast before booking out, and the staff, including security and garden staff, were friendly and helpful. Beautiful gardens and views would definitely encourage...

From the time we booked in it was just a mess! Person at reception fumbling to find our booking and eventually allocated us a room ( the wrong one / smaller and cheaper type than we booked) . TV sport channel had half a menu stuck on the screen until they fixed it late on the 1st night. The room... More

This hotel, which advertises itself as a "boutique" hotel lacks atmosphere, serves distinctly average food, and offers very poor service, especially of the personalised kind which I am used to when staying at other boutique hotels ... this is really a glorified B&B. There were hardly any staff around except in the mornings (those servicing the rooms) and at breakfast.... More

It was our first trip to Nelspruit, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Boutique Hotel. The Room that was allocated for us, was delightful and very spacious. I would recommend this Hotel without thinking twice!

We regularly use this facility for our business visits to Nelspruit. Beautifully situated with excellent food and friendly staff. Only the showers in the rooms we stayed in needs a bit attention.
