Great place to have serenity, peace and comfort. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the breakfast is delicious and the staff is friendly. Excellent place for golf fans and people who enjoy green spaces.

Room Tip: All the bedrooms are cosy and confortable.

I stayed at the Matumi Lodge for a long term stay while working in Nelspruit. The staff were very accommodating and helped with any requests. On the few occasions I wasn't working, they had great suggestions for tourist activities and places to go in the surrounding areas. The rooms were clean, the food was good and the surroundings were safe and quiet. Definitely a great place to stay whether visiting Nelspruit for work or for pleasure.

beautiful view over the golf course. The rooms are luxurious with top of the range finishes. Everything you need except supper. The lodge is inside a golf estate and is secure and safe.This is ideal for doing business in the area,in the city yet removed from it. Breakfast is more than adquate and well presented. The fridge in the room is not stocked which is not ideal,I always wonder why a fridge is necessary in a room if it is not stocked. There is a honesty bar in the communal area and it makes sense to me that the room fridge should be stocked as it is the same effort to reconcile stock used in the honesty bar as it would be monitoring the room fridge usage. Be sure to ask for a room with aview of the golf course.Room 5 has no view at all.

The rooms are lovely, spacious and clean with all the necessary amenities . Very suitable work environment with ample lighting. The lodge is very peaceful, quiet and safe with lovely view - a real home-from-home. The breakfast is lovely and stylishly served.

After checking out on the 2nd day I realised that I would need to extend my stay for an extra night and at short notice (after hours) Marli went out of her way to arrange this together with an early breakfast. My thanks to all the staff who ensured that my stay was perfect. .

I highly recommend the lodge.

Room Tip: Rooms 4, 6 and 7 face the golf course with rooms 6 and 7 having a verandah. Rooms 3 to 7 are upstair...

I'm sure the experiance at Matumi lodge is good but the attitude I got from the owner was appauling. I booked through Groupon and cancelled 3 weeks in advance, initially I was told I will get a refund from Groupon even though Matumi had already remeeded the voucher from Groupon. After about 3 weeks they tell me they will refund me by the 14th of October which obviously didn't happen. I kept calling them and they kept promising to call mee back which they never did, today the woman who says she's the owner there screamed at me when I asked when can I expect my money back and told me they will not refund me and then hung up on me. Seriously??????

My wife and I had to attend a wedding in Nelspruit on the10th of September 2011 and we somewhat apprehensive about our accomodation. Nevertheless we went ahead and booked at Matumi Golf Lodge. In hindsight this was an excellent choice. The Lodge is filled with all the amenities that you require and breakfast was served in style. Our stay was epitomized by the warm and friendly service received from Yolandi, George and the rest of team. We had picked up a puncture and due to it being a Sunday could not immediately source a Run Flat Tyre. Yolandi went the extra mile to assist us and further extended her hospitality to my parents who attended the wedding and were booked in at the Lodge. I definitely will return to Matumi Golf Lodge and recommend this to all my fellow South African and International travelers.
