The views and garden surroundings are beautiful but this is probably the only thing going for it. Our room was spacious yet it was riddled with insects and lots of spiders, even in the bed! There was no wifi in the rooms, even though they state you can get it! The only place it works is near reception, if you...

Good Day, Thank you for your review. In answer to your comments: Firstly, you were upgraded from a Standard to a Luxury Room at no extra cost. Secondly, we border a Nature Reserve, there are insects, even more so in mid-summer. We spray our rooms daily and we provide insect spray and mosquito repellent body spray in all of our...

I stay over in Nelspruit monthly and had a break from the casino hotel. I was very nervous to trade my hotel room for an guest house, to my surprise it was like I got the penthouse suite in a hotel. The executive suite is like being at home while travelling. Awesome views, full lounge and dining room, great kitchen...

From now on if I need to look for accommodation in Nelspruit, I won't look any further the La Roca. My girlfriend and I stayed here for a weekend away and everything was perfect. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite and it was more like a little house than just a room. It was very big and also very stylish,...

the reception by the owner Rob and his wife was unbelievable. we arrived earlier than expected but our rooms were ready. the rooms are very spacious and well maintained: the specials on the breakfast could be improved by having at least three options to choose from. the courtesy of providing the map on places of interest, advice and the packed...

When we arrived at LaRoca, we found unexpected breathtaking views for a guest house in a suburban area! Our unit was spacious and modern and the outside shower was a bonus. Waking up to the tranquility of birdsong sets the mood for the rest of the day. The included breakfast is a winner. We will definately visit again when we...

Having booked the 'executive suite' I expected a spacious, comfortable and relaxing accommodation and was not disappointed. Creature comforts like a 'larger flat screen TV was missing and some of the furniture (couches on porch and lounge) could be upgraded though. Great!!! panoramic view from most areas of the rooms, outside bath and shower was something different. Self catering unit...

A unique experience – in a negative sense! Arriving there was okay – we were too early, our room was not ready. But that was totally okay.

Dear Anne, It would be nice if you check your facts before assuming the negative. We did in fact make a special trip to the post office to post your cards. The fact that there was a 3-month postal strike at the time is not our fault. We do not offer a postal service - we did this to help...
