My wife and I were on our way to the Kruger National Park, and decided to sleep over at this hotel, to enable us to enter the Park early the next morning. Whenever we travel quite a distance we always see if there is one of the City Lodge group Hotels on our route for a sleep over, as they maintain a very good standard throughout the country. The Nelspruit Town Lodge was no exception. We were greeted by Bongani at reception in a friendly way, and our check-in was done fast and efficiently. Hendrick from security assisted us with our luggage to our room on the 1st floor. Like all the Town/Road Lodge Hotels, the room was found to be neat and tidy. Although the rooms are smaller than the average hotel rooms, we experience that they are quite sufficient for a short stay.
The Town/Road Lodge Hotels do not provide supper, but upon request reception supplied us with a Mr. Delivery menu for placing an order for in room dining. When we phoned Mr. Delivery we were informed that their credit card machine was not operational, and they could only deliver a meal if we paid cash. Upon another enquiry at reception, the Food Court across the road was recommended to us, where we had a tasty and enjoyable meal at Upper Deck at a reasonable price.
The only real problem encountered at the hotel was with the shower. The main shower head did not work at all, and we had to use the hand held one. The other problem was to exit the shower. The wooden sliding door cover interfered with the swivel glass shower door. One had to “shoulder” the glass door several times to “free” yourself from the shower. During check-out this was reported to Christel at reception who made a note and promised that their maintenance would see to the problem. We however still enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would return again.
