Froncolin Lodge really offers something special! These days peolple forget the importance of small personal touches, friendly staff and genuine hospitality. Francolin lodge is one of those rare places that still offers all of the above, the true essence of hospility and great service.

Thank you Jacquesvdw for "Fantastic accommodation" Francolin Lodge is "something special" and we are proud to say so ourselves thank you very much! However, when the guests take the time to write a review telling the world about their "rare" find, we are even prouder. We do hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards

Let's be honest, there is nothing special about Nespruit and nothing to do there. This place makes you forget all that. We stayed at 5 star lodges across the Garden Route on our trip and this one was easily one of the best.

From incredibly friendly staff to a very tastefully designed social and pool area all set on a hilltop with great views I would highly recommend this for anyone with a stopover in nespruit or as a nice break when flying in i
or out.
Be sure you try the restaurant as well, great food and steaks at prices that will blow your mind.

A review like this is why we stay in business! Thank you Christian for "Fantastic Lodge". Nothing makes us happier than feedback from our guests. When that feedback is so positive we are over the moon. We are perfectly situated for stop overs to and from the Kruger National park or to break up that long trip between home and Mozambique...a little magic and pampering to get you back on track. We hope to have the opportunity to host you both again.

Kind regards

This is an excellent facility, both the room, service, food and the beautiful setting and view over the Kruger Park. Recommended to every one wanting up-market accommodation at the most affordable price.

We love "Excellent accommodation" and thank you kindly for such a wonderful review and your recommendation. While the Kruger Park is a bit further out of town, our views over the Crocodile river valley are unrivaled. We hope to welcome you back in the near future.

We felt very welcome at the Lodge, everyone was friendly and extremely helpful. Having the Orange restaurant on site was very helpful. The only disappointment is that they didn't have a kiddies menu, although they did assist by splitting the adult portion between the children.
I would highly recommend it.

"Highly recommended" is so wonderful to read - thank you Cyndra S for sharing your views. Making sure our guests have the best stay possible is what we constantly strive for and it is always nice to know when we have got it right. We have passed your suggestion of more children-friendly options on to the Orange Restaurant and we do look forward to welcoming you and your family back again.
