La Roca has far exceeded my expectations. I ahve been back and forth to Nelspruit for business as of late and they have been home away from home. The staff are exceptionally polite and friendly and always able to assist as best they can. The rooms, whether luxury or standard are of the highest quality and the best interest of...

The hotel offers excellent and well maintained rooms and premises. Unique view of nature and a quiet and relaxing environment. Just siting on the balcony of our room and enjoying the view at night; morning or any other time was a very relaxing exercise. The rest of the premises from the gardens to the pool were very well taken care...

Feeling at home and safe is what I most value and it's exactly what I felt at La Roca! I'm very glad to have made this option, and I strongly recomend La Roca to a shopping week end at Nelspruit! Cozy and Safe!

The views and garden surroundings are beautiful but this is probably the only thing going for it. Our room was spacious yet it was riddled with insects and lots of spiders, even in the bed! There was no wifi in the rooms, even though they state you can get it! The only place it works is near reception, if you...

Good Day, Thank you for your review. In answer to your comments: Firstly, you were upgraded from a Standard to a Luxury Room at no extra cost. Secondly, we border a Nature Reserve, there are insects, even more so in mid-summer. We spray our rooms daily and we provide insect spray and mosquito repellent body spray in all of our...

I stay over in Nelspruit monthly and had a break from the casino hotel. I was very nervous to trade my hotel room for an guest house, to my surprise it was like I got the penthouse suite in a hotel. The executive suite is like being at home while travelling. Awesome views, full lounge and dining room, great kitchen...

Spread amongst 6,000m² of sub-tropical garden, several of our rooms, the breakfast lapa and pool deck enjoy stunning uninterrupted views over the Nelspruit Nature Reserve and escarpment beyond. Conveniently situated only 2Km from the city centre, La Roca is a peaceful oasis within which to unwind from a long days work or to use as a base for exploring the many world class attractions in the vicinity: the Kruger National Park; Blyde River Canyon; Mozambique and Swaziland are all less than an hour away. Offering standard, luxury and executive accommodation, all our en-suite rooms have been individually decorated with attention to detail and each have a private entrance and a balcony or patio.
