Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nelspruit Lodge has earned commendations for its service, with guests frequently applauding the staff's friendliness and professionalism, despite occasional minor glitches. The rooms are generally appreciated for their cleanliness and spaciousness, although some guests feel they could be larger for family use. While the hotel's cleanliness, especially in common areas, is often highlighted, opinions on the atmosphere are divided due to noise issues despite its unique and friendly vibe. Even though the lodge is considered affordable, there are calls for updates in amenities and a more varied breakfast to enhance its value.

We had a running race in Nelspruit and stayed over just one evening in Nelspruit Lodge. The staff members was very helpful and accommodated all our requests with a smile. The rooms is private, there is easy access in and out of the gates at any time (we needed to get out early for the race). Rooms are clean and more than adequate. We are very happy with the accommodation will use it next time again

The lodge is ok for business travelers but needs attention in the maintenance department. I personally would not stay there again. The price paid without breakfast when added to the price for breakfast puts it in the same price range as far superior establishments.

What a pleasant surprise to have found this hotel, I will certainly keep it as my go to place when visiting Nelspruit again. The staff really make one feel at home and the room was clean and comfortable. Even when the load shedding kicked in, they had a generator late enough to keep the lights on and more at the hotel. This was a godsend for me as I had to recharge equipment batteries overnight for work the next day, and without it I would have been in trouble!

The service was very poor, the treatment from the receptionist who were working there was very disappointing I must say. I wouldn't recommend it to any one

They didn't even have any decent cutlery for us to use during our stay not to mention wine and champagne glasses only juice glasses.

It was so disappointing hey, the bed I slept on..... 😒 Please do something with your beds.

The guest house is very clean and accommodative. I enjoyed staying at the guest house. I like the fact that it have a small kitchen inside and also the bathroom has both the bath tab and the shower and you can also cook if you want to.

Aircon in the room was not working properly. The Restaurant closes very early, would have loved to sit and socialise a bit more that evening.
The shower head in the room was leaking, and then fell off while i was showering. The water burned me!

The Lodge is situated close to the Mediclinic, giving my mother and I quick access to my very ill, 91 year old father. The staff helped arrange transport to and from the hospital daily, removing a huge stress factor from our shoulders. we will definitely use the Lodge in future, when necessary.
