The property is beautifully set out and maintained. I was made to feel extremely welcome the entire time. The people behind this guesthouse clearly care about what they do and it shows. Well worth staying for a few days

Excellent value - a lovely room and delicious breakfast. Made very welcome by staff. Easy to find. Great sunset from the terrace. An ideal stop off near the Kruger. No restaurant but you can order a huge range of food for delivery.

Beautiful room, nice views, especially from the breakfast room, very nice people - only minus: no restaurant, so you need to go out at night or go to a supermarket. Close to routes for Kruger and Panorama route. Good help for organizing tours. Very recommendable hotel.

Set in gorgeous gardens with beautiful rooms this is a real gem. It boasts a great pool/deck area and has its own Brai facilities. Stunning views from the breakfast deck, great food and very helpful and attentive staff. They'll even help you arrange your safari to the Kruger National Park !. Highly recommended. David Bough

Accompanied a friend to Nelspruit for the Kaapsehoop Marathon. Thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing accommodation and settings at La Roca. The staff were friendly and very hospitable, the scenery was amazing and most of all, the atmosphere was so relaxing and peaceful. Will most certainly be back.

Spread amongst 6,000m² of sub-tropical garden, several of our rooms, the breakfast lapa and pool deck enjoy stunning uninterrupted views over the Nelspruit Nature Reserve and escarpment beyond. Conveniently situated only 2Km from the city centre, La Roca is a peaceful oasis within which to unwind from a long days work or to use as a base for exploring the many world class attractions in the vicinity: the Kruger National Park; Blyde River Canyon; Mozambique and Swaziland are all less than an hour away. Offering standard, luxury and executive accommodation, all our en-suite rooms have been individually decorated with attention to detail and each have a private entrance and a balcony or patio. Our approach is professional but our style is with a smile - creating a friendly and warm ambience. Welcome to La Roca - an ideal base for corporate or leisure travellers.
