As a whole, travelling as much as I do, I hate staying at guest houses. Was totally not looking forward to this as I received my booking confirmation late when I was already in Nelspruit. The place is located in a beautiful setting, way out from where I was supposed to work. The check inn and treatment was very nice,...

Dear Earl, we were disappointed and confused to read your review of our Guesthouse for a number of reasons. Shandon Lodge is a four star “Guest house/B&B” and is clearly positioned as such on our website and in all supporting communications. We do not set out to be confused with a “hotel”. We take great pride in our homely personalized...

I have been staying at Shandon Lodge regularly since I started visiting Nelspruit more than 10 years ago. The rooms are always immaculate, clean and well presented. Owners Tony and Jane are hands on, ensuring a personal touch and that high standards are maintained. Shandon is situated in a residential area, a little out of the busyness of town. I...

If I had my way I would still be sitting on the shaded verandah at Shandon. What a spot. A generous bar with lovely decor, fabulous deep chairs, and a glorious view out. Shandon gets a big thumbs up. Tucked in a quiet part of Nelspruit with gorgeous gardens, Shandon is an excellent place if you're looking for somewhere to...

We recently traveled to South Africa and rather than stay at a large hotel, we opted for an outstanding Bed & Breakfast in Nelspruit, S. Africa. We were there for 4 nights and I do have to say it was just one of the best experiences we had! The owners are wonderful and warm ~ Tony and Jane the best...

We arrived at Shandon Lodge on a hot Lowveld afternoon after a 10 hour drive. Our welcome from Jane and Tony was warm and friendly and we immediately felt relaxed and at home. Our room was luxurious and comfortable, making us wish we were staying more than just one night. Ice cold sundowners at the bar hit the spot, and...

We found the rooms to be spotless with lovely decor. My husband and I were accommodated in a delux room and my daughter stayed in the standard room. Both were beautiful. Situated in a quiet area with easy access to shopping malls. The staff were very pleasant and the breakfasts were prepared to our specifications. This Lodge comes highly recommended.

A brilliant stay in luxurious accommodation. Jane and Tony make you feel part of the family. Breakfasts were great, but the suppers, around the table, were awesome, excellent food and interesting company. Made my extended stay a pleasure. Will definitely recommend it and will be back.
