La Roca is nestled in a leafy suburb next to a nature reserve. What an exceptional setting! Besides the panoramic view from our room and bathroom, we were treated like royalty.
We phoned on the day of our arrival, and was offered a good rate. The room itself is stylish, with modern but functional decor and is equipped with good quality linen, towels and mattresses. The bathroom is a sanctuary with a large tub and spacious shower. The bathroom amenities are luxurious and ample.
The occupancy of the guest house was remarkably high with about 75% of the guesthouse booked.

Wanting to sample some local cuisine influenced by Mozambique, we opted for the Portugese restaurant Costa do Sol – one of the oldest restaurants in Nelspruit. We savoured sardines, catembe, prawns and enjoyed excellent service and good food.

Back at La Roca we had a good night’s rest and were warmly welcomed to a beautiful breakfast room in the morning. Besides a breakfast buffet with fresh fruit, cereals, homemade muffins, toast, yoghurt, cheese and cold meats, La Roca had freshly brewed coffee and a variety of teas available. We were offered the chef’s specialty dish of the morning – a breakfast tortilla filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, mushrooms, peppers and topped with feta. It was one of the best breakfast dishes we every enjoyed – ample, tasty and very innovative.

Check out was smooth and with a smile.
We loved La Roca – and would love to return to this guesthouse built amongst the rocks.

This is a gem of a guest house. The value for your money is fantastic. It has a beautiful view, the rooms are very tastefully done and the food is just that slight step above to please the comfort foodies as well as the more modern taste bunds. It is clear the minute you walk into the rooms that it is run by people who just care about beauty and excellence. The tubs are HUGE and the beds are super comfortable. The rooms are spacious and would easily fit a nice family.

I was sad that I only had two days there and I can't wait to bring my husband here.

We booked this guest house for a one night stopover in Nelspruit. The price was reasonable and the manager a pleasure to deal with when making the reservation. The rooms are not brand new, but everything was in working condition and the room was spacious with everything we needed. It also had a minibar with a better selection of drinks than most 5* hotels!
The breakfast room is stunning and service perfect. The 'Bushveld Blend' coffee was really good and I liked the fact that you could make your own coffee using the pots provided.

My wife and I decided to spend the weekend of our first wedding anniversary at La Roca and we had a beautiful, tranquil and relaxing stay. The guesthouse sits on the hillside just above Nelspruit with stunning views over the Lowveld. Service at La Roca, from the moment you make a booking to the moment you check out is excellent and attentive to all guests needs. We stayed in Room 12, a luxury room in the garden. The room was large, beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. If you stay there in the winter (May-September) make sure you take slippers as the stone floor is little cold - although the room itself isn't. Breakfast is one of the highlights at La Roca. Served on a beautiful veranda with spectacular views there is a choice of very imaginative, not to mention delicious, "specials" everyday or guests can simply order whatever they like "al la carte". For the techies, La Roca has an excellent and FREE wireless network which is permanently on (this is unusual and a very pleasant surprise).

We have previously stayed at La Roca with our two children in a family room and can also easily recommend the guesthouse for family stays.

La Roca fully deserves to be rated exceedingly high on Trip Advisor and is certainly amongst the best guesthouses in the Nelspruit area. We will be back

Booking at La Roca was one of the best decisions made. Thanks to Management and Staff our stay was most memorable. Friendly staff, good breakfast and complete peace and serenity is what one looks for in a holiday like this, and this is exactly what we found at La Roca. We had seen pictures on the net before booking our accommodation, but we found in the accommodation was more than what we expected, it was total luxury to say the least. Fresh air, cleanliness and complete privacy just as we hoped for. This place made a huge impression, one that will linger for a long time to come. We as a family will definitely return to La Roca whenever we visit.

Room Tip: If you looking for self catering, the apartments are great, it's a definite win win situation for the whole family.
