I stay here almost every time I come to Nelspruit - either this or their sister property where I can do self-catering. It's an absolute gem. The internet is consistent and the rooms are large, clean, and beautiful. The grounds are a nice blend of modern architecture and the green of the surrounding nature. The staff have always been very...

Very friendly and helpful staff through all stages of the process. Great views and food; the attached restaurant is superb. Ideal for visiting Kruger NP especially as you can be picked up from the Lodge. Lovely complimentary snacks each evening, made you feel welcome and cared for.

On our way to Kruger Park we had an excellent overnight stay in the Francolin Lodge with very spacious rooms and an excellent restaurant. All in all a place we would definitely come back to when we are in Nelspruit or surroundings.

Stayed at Francolin Lodge for two nights while in Nelspruit on business. Found the staff friendly, the room spacious and comfortable and the breakfast amazing. A great place to lounge by the pool, breakfast outdoors or dinner at the adjoining restaurant. I left some very important documents locked in the safe but the staff were kind enough to retrieve them...

Excellent service, clean rooms, all amenities and appliance in working order. Very inconvenient for smokers, as dedicated smoking areas are very far from the rooms. I suggest that rooms with balconies can allow smoking on balconies only - Not in the room.

Thank you Hannes for reviewing your stay with us here at Francolin Lodge. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your feedback. As it is, when we first had to implement the no-smoking policy according to law, we did still allow smoking on the balconies. This did not deter guests from still smoking in the...

Large comfortable rooms with a superb view over the city and surrounding areas. Fresh milk in the fridge is a nice touch, much better than those horrible little pots. Excellent breakfast. Had a really good dinner in the attached restaurant, very high quality. It is popular with the locals so essential to make a reservation early.
