La Roca is nestled in a leafy suburb next to a nature reserve. What an exceptional setting! Besides the panoramic view from our room and bathroom, we were treated like royalty.
We phoned on the day of our arrival, and was offered a good rate. The room itself is stylish, with modern but functional decor and is equipped with good quality linen, towels and mattresses. The bathroom is a sanctuary with a large tub and spacious shower. The bathroom amenities are luxurious and ample.
The occupancy of the guest house was remarkably high with about 75% of the guesthouse booked.
Wanting to sample some local cuisine influenced by Mozambique, we opted for the Portugese restaurant Costa do Sol – one of the oldest restaurants in Nelspruit. We savoured sardines, catembe, prawns and enjoyed excellent service and good food.
Back at La Roca we had a good night’s rest and were warmly welcomed to a beautiful breakfast room in the morning. Besides a breakfast buffet with fresh fruit, cereals, homemade muffins, toast, yoghurt, cheese and cold meats, La Roca had freshly brewed coffee and a variety of teas available. We were offered the chef’s specialty dish of the morning – a breakfast tortilla filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, mushrooms, peppers and topped with feta. It was one of the best breakfast dishes we every enjoyed – ample, tasty and very innovative.
Check out was smooth and with a smile.
We loved La Roca – and would love to return to this guesthouse built amongst the rocks.
