La Roca is an owner-managed 4-star boutique guest house located in an upmarket residential suburb of Nelspruit. Spread amongst 6,000m² of sub-tropical garden, several of our rooms, the breakfast lapa and pool deck enjoy stunning uninterrupted views over the Nelspruit Nature Reserve and escarpment beyond. Conveniently situated only 2Km from the city centre, La Roca is a peaceful oasis within which to unwind from a long days work or to use as a base for exploring the many world class attractions in the vicinity: the Kruger National Park; Blyde River Canyon; Mozambique and Swaziland are all less than an hour away. Offering standard, luxury and executive accommodation, all our en-suite rooms have been individually decorated with attention to detail and each have a private entrance and a balcony or patio. Our approach is professional but our style is with a smile - creating a friendly and warm ambience. Welcome to La Roca - an ideal base for corporate or leisure travellers. You will wish you had stayed for longer!

Our room didn’t have a microwave or bowls to eat from so that was an issue . They brought bowls upon request though. Some of the staff members aren’t friendly .The view is great as well as the breakfast. Good proximity to shops. The outside sitting areas aren’t private. Tv is quite small and WiFi a bit slow.

Located in a calm, clean and safe prime neighbourhood, with beautiful garden with many trees and plants, it is a excellent place for those visiting Mbombela and Kruger National Park. The room was comfortable, clean and care with a nice balcony. The delicious breakfast is served on a splendid balcony with a wonderful view. The best way to start the day. The hosts and all the staff were very helpful and friendly making the atmosphere very welcoming.
