“Superb Guest House complete with wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 31 March 2011

Shandon Lodge was a lovely place to relax for a couple of days before going off to Kruger National Park (KNP) for 6 days. As we were coming back to Shandon Jane and Tony kindly lent us a picnic backpack with all the utensils you could need and a cold box! On Tony's advice we went off to The Crossing shops and stocked up with everything we needed for our adventure. When we arrived back at Shandon a Brai (BBQ) was waiting for us. Jane and Tony's hospitality was second to none with wonderful breakfasts too? Thank you both we are now planning our next visit....

Be prepeared to want to stay there for longer. Jane and Tony offer 'home from home' comfort and cannot do enough for their guests. Thank you both for a wonderful stay. We'll definitely be back...for longer next year!

Tony and Jane: Thanks for making your home my home during my time in Nelspruit!
I really enjoyed the warm atmosphere and felt like being in a guest family. The excellent food, the drinks and discussions at the bar - all in all your hospitality - made me feel being part of the family! I/we will definitely come back.

Jane's cooking was fabulous, Tony's advice on the Kruger experience made our time there that much more pleasurable. Your personal attention was unsurpassed! Thanks for making our holiday in Mpumalanga a memorable occasion. See you again ASAP.

Reviewed 25 July 2010

The room, the swimming pool area and main house were nicely appointed and felt very comfortable. My only complaint would be that Tony and Jane didn't feel as much like B&B owners but like they were running a business, and that they didn't want to be disturbed too much. They wanted to charge $30/day for wifi! And they tried to charge triple the quoted price for laundry. Overall I still give 4 stars, though, because it was a busy time and the main things were all completely in order (clean, comfortable room, nice facilities, good breakfast). You just don't expect for hosts to make you feel like it's an inconvenience for you to be there!
