A room away from home is a room away from home. The rooms here do just fine. What makes this place extraordinary is the family that owns and runs it … especially the mother. What an amazing mensch! I arrived at very short notice for a week of business in Nelspruit. I am vegan. They’re not and have never had to cater for a vegan. Jenny took it upon herself to personally make my food for the week. I had gourmet food for the entire week! :D With delicious health smoothies for breakfast, made by Drew, the daughter. I see in the comments that someone named Andre had some bad luck. Stuff happens. But when I mentioned that the Wi-Fi was slow, they immediately connected me to something else, which solved the problem. All in all, a lovely place with a lovely atmosphere and real people who walk around barefoot and make one feel at home. And, did I mention the amazing conversations around the dinner table? This is not a holiday destination place, but you know what? I’ll definitely stay there again, even if I was holidaying in the area.

Our room was very spacious & pretty. Victorian bath in the middle of the room was awesome & unique! Staff were very accommodating and the breakfast was a full English breakfast, more than enough food! :) It's definitely worth a stay & we will be back!

My home away from home. I stay there every three weeks and just love every time. Always made to feel so welcome. Really good value for money. Comfortable room with fridge, aircon, TV, nicely furnished and absolutely clean.

Balcony Manor is a good guest house for a traveller needing to stay over for one or two evenings. Very attractive from outside and the rooms are not bad. There are however a number of rooms, some of which are better than others. I suggest ask to see the rooms before checking in to make sure you get a bigger and more modern one. Service and breakfast is good, but bookings are sometimes muddled up when you arrive.
