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.

We stayed at Jorn's on the last day of November after driving from Johannesburg airport. We were made to feel so welcome (especially by beautiful little Blanca!). We stayed here with our 17 year old daughter and our room was huge. Two big beds, some comfy chairs and a desk. There was also a little table and chairs out the front of our room, overlooking the gorgeous gardens. The bathroom was very clean and the pool area was lovely. The dining area overlooks the pool which in turn overlooks the hills of Nelspruit. The breakfast was excellent. A huge range of help yourself options plus a made to order cooked breakfast. Also, the property is in a safe, secluded street in Nelspruit and is secured (with plenty of parking) from 6pm every night. We spent time at the Jane Goodall Chimp Eden and this was an easy 10 minute drive from Jorn's. I would highly recommend Jorn's to anyone staying in the area. It was a perfect stop before heading into Kruger.

We stayed at Jörn's for 5 days in the King Suite and enjoyed every second of our stay. The view is better than the pictures and the room has everything you need and more. The breakfast was delicious every single morning and they did not hesitate to pack a picnic breakfast when we left early for the Kruger National Park. Jörn and his staff are very professional and hospitable. We will recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be back, God willing.

We were only there for one night, coming from Kruger Park and going back to Jberg. Love the vibe of the place. Very calming surroundings with well kept garden, including a small bridge on a pond full of large koi fishes.
Very friendly and efficient staff.
Breakfast was excellent too!

The staff are really nice and friendly. However for a 4 star establishment you expect a little more, the beds were so hard we could not sleep and you wake up with sore bones, the aircon did not work in the room and the extra blankets were not of the same standard one new one and one very old. The DSTV remote worked but the decoder was tucked away and would not read the remote. It was quite frustrating as you had to change the channels on the decoder itself. It was a cold weekend and there were no previsions made for heating, no aircon, no electric blankets etc. However, the place was clean the bathrooms very dated and nice people. Again the breakfast was very simple not what you expect in a 4 star establishment and was not value for money.

Absolutely amazing stay. Friendly staff and Godfrey was the sweetest and made me feel so welcome. I’ll happily return for chats with him. Beautiful gardens ,very neat and tidy.
The room was very spacious and very clean, the bath was a real treat could lie back and relax and switch off for a little before returning to the lap top

What a gem in Nelspruit. It is our first time here and of all the places we looked at online, this was by far the most beautiful. And boy were we surprised when we got here - the King Suite is simply amazing and the beautiful garden makes one feel so at home. Breakfast was delicious, with different options every day. And we loved how accommodating the team was, even making breakfast packs (with great variety) for us when we had to leave early the one morning. We cannot wait for our next visit to Nelspruit - you will be seeing us again!

We were a group of swimmers (12) from KZN attending SA Masters Swiimming Championships in Mbombela. The management went out of their way to make our stay as welcoming as possible. Breakfast Packs were delivered to our rooms the night before. as we had to leave early for the Pool. Spacious clean , serviced rooms.
They also allowed us to have our Club "Bring and Braai", at the Guesthaus pool providing us with the Braai, and seating in the dining area with cutlery and crockery provided.

The facilities are clean.

Not a great place to book if you’re travelling for work. The WiFi is terrible and there’s no signal for Vodacom and MTN.

The bed I slept on was uncomfortable, the kettle tripped electricity every time I tried to have tea.
