Message from our Owner and Personnel

Thank you for choosing Nelspruit Lodge as your preferred accommodation during your stay in Nelspruit. We are delighted to accommodate you.

In 2006, when Hendrik Kruger, the owner, was trying to find a place to stay while in a little town, he noticed that most options were either extremely expensive and offering limited facilities or the available accommodation and its facilities were too basic for comfort.

Just like a typical entrepreneur, he spent the night calculating income, cost and expenses and the next morning when he returned home, he said “We are going to open a hotel. Not just any hotel. A hotel to fit anyone’s budget without compromising quality of stay!”

That is how Nelspruit Lodge, The Place to Stay, started its journey to becoming one of the best hotels in town. We began with only 20 rooms, now called Block A, and soon developed Block B, C, D and E, over a 12-year period. Each block has its own unique character and each is priced differently, to give everyone an option.

It was very important, for the owner, to incorporate open architectural designs, to avoid having enclosed corridors that will make you feel trapped. With the wide open spaces of the Lowveld all around, guests staying with us will enjoy a real sense of nature and can enjoy the scenery from all over the lodge, either by walking out of their front door or by gazing out of the windows of their rooms.

We strive to be the best hotel in Nelspruit by doing everything we can to accommodate our guests. We are always open for any feedback from you, whether it is positive or negative. We take your feedback very seriously, and we cordially request all guests to leave us a review on any of our social media platforms or on TripAdvisor.

Alternatively, any complaints can be shared online via our survey, written in our complaint book or reported to our reception staff. Immediate attention will be given by a manager or directly by the owner.

We hope you enjoy your stay with us, and that we’ll see you again soon!
