If you are looking for a relaxing stay in Nelspruit enjoying a great garden, pool and a lodge with only a few family rooms, Mataffin is the perfect place for you. Nelspruit's shopping mall are only 10 minutes away - but you are staying in quite place on top of a green hill.

Very nice, clean and quiet place above Nelspruit in a big and beautiful garden, perfect with young kids. Good family service, comfortable and friendly, the right place to stay out of city center but still very close to it.

We spent a few days at Mataffin Hill with my wife and 10 month old baby. The staff, especially Billy, were very welcoming and helpful during our stay. The studio room we stayed in had a small kitchenette and living space. A little dated, but good. The grounds are quite spacious and a fun place to relax. We will be...

From the moment we arrived we were treated in a welcoming, friendly manner - as if we were family. Billy is an exceptional chef, relationship manager and attending to everything at the lodge.

A nice spot just outside Nellies that makes heading out into the hinterland easy and convenient. Enjoy the lawns, the pool, vegetation, trees, very friendly frogs, rainbirds, loeries and friendly family feel.

“A room parallel to the dining room gives views out your door of the garden and valley below. A room perpendicular to the dining room faces the bush, so no views but tend to be more private.”
