Roost Guest Lodge
Ranked #60 of 79 Nelspruit B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 23, 2012

The owner met us on arrival and showed us to our room. She was friendly and efficient. I was a bit surprised that the price seemed to be slightly higher than stated on the website when booking, but even with the increase it was still cheaper than most other guest houses in Nelspruit.
We were also disappointed that the room was twin room, and not a double as booked.
The room and the linen was clean, but not the best quality. Some of the towels were slightly stained, but they smelled clean and I didn't feel uncomfortable using it.
Magazines, a hairdryer and TV with basic channels were provided in the room. There were no tea and coffee making facilities that I could see, but I didn't ask it may have been in the main house.
A group came in late in the evening and we could hear every word they said from our room. It may be neccesary to request a quiet room if you are a light sleeper.
Breakfast the following morning was very good. The coffee was excellent and the eggs just as I ordered it. Their breakfast sausages were tasty and of a good quality.
I would recomment The Roost if you are on a budget or just need somewhere to sleep.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper or on business, ask for a quiet room away from the other rooms.

Not recommended unless you are in late and out early and have no other choice. The room was small ,the linen torn and grey and the surroundings dingy. There was the most appalling smell of mothballs coming from the bathroom which gave us a both a headache.
The verandahs were pleasant but the uncomfortable garden furniture didn't encourage you to linger, and the pool was green and most unpleasant looking.
Parking outside the room meant that we were disturbed by very late and loud arrivals and by early morning departures.
Officially rated and priced at 4 star but have been in better 2 star places.
