Stayed here for a one night and was received by one of the most pleasant hosts. She was very helpful and efficient, even prior to booking. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with a fridge and microwave. They also have a pool area which most of the rooms lead out to. I was really impressed with the honesty of...

Bavaria is a good choice of guest house for the traveller or business person. The reseptionist and management were very efficient and helpful in attending to matters. Breakfast was of good quality every morning. The first night we did experience noisy guests, however these were firmly dealt with. A suggestion is for the establishment to create a separate entertainment area....

We had a wonderful stay at Bavaria Guest Lodge. We are a family with 3 adolescents and arrived at 4pm without a reservation. The reception was extremely friendly, the guesthouse has a family room with 5 beds and last but not least very reliable internet. Thanks for the warm welcome and good service, appreciated!

The Hosts are the best that I've come up so far! Super friendly, client focused, always available to help. The room is exactly what we need to have a nice weekend spend! It's clean, with necessary amenities and comfy bed. TV and AC will make the rest of the comfort.

My son and I stayed for 3 nights, him taking part in a cycling event. The price was an issue and the proximity to the Mbombela stadium was important. The guest house was very clean, not luxurious, but had everything we needed. The pool and aircon were life savers. The gas braai a wonderful extra! No need to buy wood/fire...

Unfortunately my husband came down with malaria on our way back from Mozambique, so we had to stop in Nelspruit to take him to the Mediclinic to be treated. As this was an unplanned stop, I had to find a place to stay over. The Bavaria Guest Lodge brochure was in the reception of the hospital, so I called hoping...

On our way to the Kruger National Park from Johannesburg in a hired car, we decided to stop over in the Lowveld town of Nelspruit. We were recommended the Bavaria Guest Lodge for our overnight stay.

We stayed only one night on our way to the Kruger Park. If we come back, the Bavaria Guest Lodge will definitely be our first choice. We are a family of five and had the largest room that would accommodate six guests if necessary. Right outside the room, there was a nice garden with pool and tropical birds. The owners...
