Upon check in, we were rushed through the process by a manager who certainly didn't want to be there. A few rules were thrown at us and she left. Later that night, we retuned to the room with no electricity due to a storm. Not La Roca's fault by any means, but getting to the room from the parking lot...

Dear Shirell, Whilst we agree that constructive feedback is necessary in order for any business to improve, we also feel it is appropriate to respond to feedback that is unfair. We have discussed your review with our managers and do empathise with some of the issues you raise and whilst an apology will regrettably not alter the outcome of your...

Our overnight experience at La Roca exceeded our expectations in every way. The room and the grounds were beautiful, and the staff was incredibly helpful and professional. Breakfast was outstanding and the location was convenient to nearby restaurants. We're already looking forward to the opportunity to stay at your gorgeous lodge again.

This is really a beautiful guest house. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated. The swimming pool area is fantastic and breakfast is one of the best I've had at a guest house. Friendly helpful staff. Safe parking. The only downer was the wi-fi signal in our room was very weak. We stayed in the Moroccan room which I thought...

Everything in this guest House is exquisite: the architecture, the forms and colours, the decoration, the gardens and verandas, the private and common areas, up to the food!

We stayed in a standard room, it was quite expensive we thought (1100) for a room that wasnt anything special, really. Room was super cold in june, but its the case everywhere in Nelspruit. On the upside, a very clean room and a very good breakfast. I believe the nice rooms are the 'luxury' ones with valley view.
