The venue was so relevant; accessible and befitting for a weekend away and we appreciated the hospitality. The breakfast was sumptuous. The atmosphere was welcoming and we sure will be using it again.

We arrived at The Palms a bit early and unfortunately the host was out so we had to return later in the afternoon. We were warmly greeted and shown to our rooms after a quick tour of the property to show us where everything was (breakfast room being the most important). There was also a well maintained pool in a...

Before we selected The Palms in Nelspruit as our base to visit the Kruger Park we wrote to several guest houses, and the owners of The Palms entered into a detailed correspondence with us and showed great consideration for our special needs. We were travelling with three elderly parents who have limited mobility, and the owners reassured us about booking...

We booked this guest house for a quick stopover in Nelspruit and were extremely happy with our choice. Comfortable rooms, warm welcome and a lovely breakfast. There is a terrace on the side of the house providing a smoking area and views of the garden. The price was very reasonable and will definitely be back!

This B&B is a brilliant place to stay. Sue (owner) gave us the best greeting we've ever had to an accommodation. She was very helpful and gave us great dinner tips. The rooms are very nice, the lounge is great, beautiful garden, free wifi, huge breakfast, and very reasonably priced on top of that. Highly recommended to everyone.
