My first time staying here. Great location right in Nelspruit. Hotel is lovely built around huge natural boulder rocks. Rooms are impeccable easily 5 star. I was upgraded to a luxury suite. But entire property is lovely well maintained and run like clockwork by husband Dennis & wife team. Entire property has free wifi. New owners for 4 months now they claim to have done alot of work...and it shows! They plan on more renovations. Breakfast is really good serving a full english plus continental. You not lacking anything. Staff are sweet & accomodating. Best of all was the rooms. Modern luxury we literally spent all our time there. Massive flat screen with dstv channels. Beautiful bath & shower. Lovely furniture. They only do breakfast for now but you can see why... new owners for just 4 months they not likely to take on anything they cant excel in. There are literally tons of excellent restuarants on yr doorstep though. Definitely Ill be back here. Well worth the rate!

Arrived in the early evening while it was still dark. Did not get to see much of the venue. The room was clean neat and tastefully decorated. When I went for breakfast the next morning I walked through the neat garden and was welcomed by the friendly staff at the main building and enjoyed a great breakfast with a stunning view off the veranda.

It's difficult to provide a comprehensive review of this hotel as we arrived late (around 9pm) and left early (around 4am), so all we used was our bathroom and our bed! We had no issues checking in late, with the guard at the gate showing us to our room, and similarly leaving at 4am was seamless (also care of the gate guard). Management had kindly left a packed breakfast for us in the fridge because we had let them know we would be leaving early - the breakfast was relatively substantial. The shower was great - nice and large with great water pressure although the water took a little while to heat up. I really liked the bathroom. The room itself was a good size and had everything we needed for a good stay. The wifi worked well. The location was perfect as well for a stop on the way to Kruger. We will likely stay here again on our next trip to Kruger. We have stayed at a few different places but this represents the best value for money for one brief night's stay, and the ease of checking in late and checking out early makes it a great option.

Room Tip: If you have lots of luggage ask for a room close to parking
