During a recent trip to South Africa that includes several luxury stays, we had to overnight in a town we had never heard of called Nelspruit. After reading Lonely Planet, we decided on a place called the Francolin Lodge. Were we ever pleasantly surprised.
With large, open two-story condo-like rooms with balconies that are beautifully appointed in contempary style, our room was by far one of the best values of our entire trip. The Francolin Lodge is nestled high up in the hills overlooking Nelspruit and even boasts an excellent restaurant and terrific pool. The staff was attentive and friendly, and to top it off, we were welcomed by Francolin's Great Dane, Frank.
I would strongly recommend staying here and certainly would if I ever returned to South Africa.
