Beautiful room, nice views, especially from the breakfast room, very nice people - only minus: no restaurant, so you need to go out at night or go to a supermarket. Close to routes for Kruger and Panorama route. Good help for organizing tours. Very recommendable hotel.

Set in gorgeous gardens with beautiful rooms this is a real gem. It boasts a great pool/deck area and has its own Brai facilities. Stunning views from the breakfast deck, great food and very helpful and attentive staff. They'll even help you arrange your safari to the Kruger National Park !. Highly recommended. David Bough

Accompanied a friend to Nelspruit for the Kaapsehoop Marathon. Thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing accommodation and settings at La Roca. The staff were friendly and very hospitable, the scenery was amazing and most of all, the atmosphere was so relaxing and peaceful. Will most certainly be back.

Exceptionally welcoming staff, every need pro-actively catered for (even arranged breakfast pack for early hours departure!). Gorgeous rooms, stunning pool, awesome gardens (with skinks of every colour)! Next time in Nelspruit - DO make La Roca your home away from home!

A nicely hidden beauty in a high-end residential part of Nelspruit, with the usual high fences.
