We enjoyed our stay at Jorn's guest house. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the birds and listening to the frogs at night. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. A most pleasant and relaxing stay. Thank you.

This was our second time here and we, again, had a good stay here. The guesthouse has a beautiful garden, nice pool area and it is run by very nice people. This time we stayed very close to the parking area, which prevented us from carrying any bags a distance. The room was comfortable, spotless and tastefully decorated.The bed, though...

Pleasant guest house close to all the amenities of Nelspruit. Beautiful garden in a quiet area. Very helpful staff. As I had an early flight a take-away breakfast was prepared the night before. About half an hour from the airport.

This was an overnight stop on our way to the Kruger Park. We arrived late and had to leave fairly early next day so did not spend enough time here to enjoy the pool and beautiful grounds. The room was lovely and the breakfast plentiful, served in a room overlooking the pool. Shame we could not have spent more time...

What a beautiful place - the attention to detail was incredible and the decor and setting utterly gorgeous. The food and service was also fabulous. Our idea with this property was for a couple of nights of luxury after 10 days of safari, and it absolutely fitted the bill. It was also so reasonably priced we decided to go the...

Lovely guest house this, in the southern outskirts of Nelspruit. Beautifully appointed rooms, good food, lovely grounds and gardens - a real home from home.. You will not be disappointed. Would be a useful base from which to explore Kruger - it is about 50 minutes drive to the park...

We only had one night here and there was a huge electrical storm which wiped the electrics out but the staff managed still to give us hot coffee and cooked breakfast in the morning.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Surrounded by a nature reserve, this charming owner run and managed German Gästehaus is situated in a sub-tropical garden with water features, koi ponds, breath-taking mountain views and sparkling swimming pool overlooking Nelspruit. For nature-lovers the graceful landscape cries out to be explored. You might glimpse the overzealous monkeys from the adjacent nature reserve or see a porcupine bustling through the indigenous trees. In the soft evening breeze you can gaze out over the dancing lights of Nelspruit and hear the call of wide-eyed bush-babies. We speak German, English and Afrikaans.Jörn's Gästehaus is a perfect base from which to explore the Lowveld. You are only a short drive away from the Kruger National Park and breath-taking sights such as God's Window, Blyde River Canyon, Bourke's Luck Potholes, historic Pilgrim's Rest and the pioneer village of Barberton. Jörn is a registered SATOUR guide and offers various golf tour packages around Mpumalanga. Nelspruit Golf Course is only a 1-wood and a 7 iron away from Jörns Gästehaus. ... more   less
