Shandon Lodge
Ranked #12 of 79 Nelspruit B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 August 2013

I only got to stay one night, but really wish I could have stayed another few nights. The Room was beautiful and exceeded it's star rating. I was sad to leave. The only negative thing I can think of is that there was only enough plunger coffee in the room for 1cup.

We stayed at the Lodge for more than a week and were made incredibly welcome - almost as members of the family. It had been our intention to make a number of sightseeing visits and these were much helped by the information and background given by the owners, Jane and Tony Gunstone
The quality and furnishings of the rooms are delightful and ours (Room 8) had double doors opening onto the pool
The quality and choice of breakfasts was great - as were the dinners when we chose to eat in
Overall a delightful experience - to be strongly reccomended

Room Tip: Ideally for couples - rooms 5,6,7 or 8

This place is wonderful! Such a lovely family and they couldn't be more helpful. We had first night of honeymoon here before going to the Kruger. When we came back they had cooked for us and we all ate together like old friends. Will definitely return here, superb!

Believe the reviews: Tony and Jane are wonderfully hospitable. Before we arrived they provided us with lots of information to help plan our trip.

And when we arrived, they offered us a complimentary drink. But the drinks didn't stop and it was only after I left that I realised that they had given me the drinks from free as opposed to charging me for them. Thanks for the generosity guys!

The guesthouse is in a lovely neighbourhood and is exquisitely finished. If you are staying mid-week, make sure to have the dinner: we had homemade chicken pie and it was to-die-for!

The Wi-Fi is a a hotspot provided by a third party and is free for 30 mins and then charged afterwards (the free 30 mins is refreshed daily). But for the techies among you, if you know how to clone your MAC address, you can set a new clones MAC after every 30 mins, and the network will think you are a new computer and will give you another 30 mins free
