Loved Christie's, it is a well run, clean and impeccably presented boutique hotel. The pool and gardens are beautiful and well kept and a serene place to relax after a hot day. All the rooms I imagine are of a high standard, we stayed in the family room and were very comfortable with every amenity imaginable, including fresh ground coffee and a cafetiere. Staff are knowledgeable and courteous with your every need catered for. Loved our stay!

Christie's outsource their breakfast, lunch and dinner offerings to Orange, a reputable local restaurant. The quality of the breakfast was very good but the one dinner we had was average. The portions were huge, no question, i got 3 chicken breasts on my plate, but the chicken breast was a tad tough, the veg it came with was beautifully cooked and very tasty. The service was also average, the staff were friendly and pleasant but the white wine and £3.50:bottle of water was warm and when we asked for ice it was a while before it came. I understand completely that it can be challenge keeping things cool it this hot climate but at least serve the drinks with ice so the customer doesn't need to ask. The breakfast service was similar, one morning at breakfast we didn't get offered tea or coffee once! Granted we could have asked but by the time we actually got our breakfast we weren't bothered. I asked for some toast one morning as I didn't want a hot breakfast, when she brought it, she announced that she had brought me one slice was that ok, as I had waited a while for this I accepted it but quite an assumption that I only wanted one slice instead of asking me. Once again the staff were friendly, but attentive service to the needs of their customers was lacking.

O my goodness, we are humbled by your kind feedback regarding our property, staff and service. It is wonderful to know that yet another guest loved Christie’s. We take note of your feedback on our catering options and service there off. This is still a new venture recently forged and we could not be more delighted to have Orange on board. As with all new ventures there will be teething problems. We will certainly address these issues immediately. We thank you kindly for providing us with such detailed feedback. This kind of constructive feedback is crucial in the process of assisting us in our journey to excellence. Hospitality greetings Suzanne van Breda General manager

Dear Christie’s at 32,
I am very grateful for the most wonderful stay.
When asked whether you had a room with a bathtub (one of us was suffering from a stomach ache) - you immediately upgraded us cost free to a better room with a bathtub. We were so touched and grateful by such hospitality! Your breakfast is almost most wonderful.
With thanks!
Best,
Hugo

The facility is beautiful with immaculate gardens and very nice appointments. Rooms were a bit small but very clean and comfortable. Only one issue marred an otherwise nice stay. There is a JoJo tank right outside the bedroom window and every time someone uses water the pump kicks on and make a very prominent noise. Really they need to move that tank away from the windows so that you don't hear a pump kicking on and off endlessly. They did offer to comp our rooms the next day when we complained about the noise. So that was kind.
We would have had breakfast there happily if it were not for the R150 charge. We went elsewhere to eat because of the cost and two of us had a lovely breakfast for that amount.

We were on route to Sabie river so we decided to break the 7 hr journey and spend a night in nelspruit.
Christies is a hidden gem and from the time you enter this private boutique hotel, the ambiance speaks luxury.
Spacious interiors well planned and private rooms with all the luxuries you can imagine. Rooms are large spacious so are the beautiful bathrooms. The website does absolute justice to this immaculate, too end market accomodation and yet not badly priced at all
DEE the owner of this family business is of Greek origin, and is hands on with guests she met with us and assured us of her very service with her team.
Collin her front desk help was most helpful he listened to us to keep our group together and made it happen
I was most impressed with everything from room amenities, bath toiletries, up market linen only the very best in each of the 3 rooms we took.
After we lost a younger brother this marked a reunion of my 2 siblings and myself. With sister turned 70 we will very happy to treat her at Christie's
Wonderful venue and bed and breakfast
I will be back

Christies's is a beautiful guesthouse, the service is excellent. I was upgraded to a superior room free of charge as the previous guests had checked-out late from the room I initially booked. Suzanne and Maria are superstars and made my stay warm and comfortable! Our breakfasts and lunches were delicious!

This is a tranquil hotel with gardens to relax in making it a quiet location on the edge of town. The rooms are bright, airy and large with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The hotel is very tastefully furnished making it a joy to look around and relax. Both breakfast and dinner are to the highest standard and with the open aspect onto the lazy river pool.

Christie's is a wonderful retreat, right in the city center. We needed easy access to downtown, and we could walk wherever we needed to go. When we came back, it was as if we were at a resort in the country. The landscape was beautiful. The rooms are luxurious. The restaurant was amazing. Each meal, and we tried most everything on the menu, was expertly prepared and presented. Christie's gets my highest recommendation.

Beautiful location and facilities. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food and top notch bed and bedding. Only issue we had in our room was a thin wall dividing the rooms. I literally heard neighbour switching on his bed lamp, closing his cupboard door and walking to the bathroom.

This place is beautiful and clean, the staff was very friendly. I loved how quiet and peaceful it was, the rooms are very spacious with almost everything you need. I requested a microwave which was not in my room and it was brought to our room without any hassle.

The food was amazing, we had a platter on our arrival, everything was very tasty, breakfast was nice with many options to choose from. Will definitely be coming back.

Super Friendly staff. Comfortable, neat, and clean rooms (Gatehouse) with the usual amenities, although a little on the small side. Annoying that the WIFI didn't work (and remains so through the stay) and the bed sagged on the one side, however, when brought to the manager's attention this was resolved. The outsourced breakfast was ordinary and a little overpriced. Definitely recommended for stays.
