Property's Favourite Review
I cannot think of any way that the experience at this oasis can be improved. It is perfection. The level of attention to detail is amazing. The rooms are incredibly romantic; the bathrooms are elegant and the house itself is beautifully restored. Sitting on the veranda sipping a drink on a hot afternoon is a treat. The hosts are incredibly knowledgeable and the hosting is done just right.

Torburnlea is our preferred place to stay when we are in Nelspruit for business. However is you you are a tourist it is a good start of your explorations in this part of South Africa too. It’s proximity is close to the Kruger Park. Torburnlea is situated in a gated community, has lovely gardens and takes you back to days gone by in a tranquil and brilliantly decorated environment. There are limited rooms, which contributes to the the nice atmosphere. Arriving after a busy day of traveling or dealing with business matters. a relaxing drink at the balcony with traveling companions or other guests is nice. That all followed by the fine dining prepared Stanford, the superb resident chef, coffee in the lounge at the fire place is unforgettable. Torburnlea a place have to stay the night for what ever occasion!

We had a fantastic stay at Torburnlea during our Easter vacation. The place has a beautiful, tranquil location with magnificent gardens and views. Everything from the grounds, to the food, and the rooms speaks of the owners great desire that you feel welcomed in their historical home. We were happy to have found such a special place in Nelspruit and will definitely be back!
