We had a family function on in Nelspruit over the past weekend and were fortunate enough to come across The Palms Guest House. What a lovely time we had! The breakfast was superb, the rooms were clean and tidy and the service received from Sue was great. She was very accommodating and very friendly. Nothing was too much for her. I cant say enough about The Palms. This was one of the best weekends we have ever had in Nelspruit. We travel every now and then to the Lowveld and will definitely stay at The Palms every time. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Stayed for a long weekend, always felt very welcome. The cooked breakfasts were great, the dinners even better. House and grounds are large enough to never feel crowded, but there are plenty of areas where guests can socialize if they want to. Overall, a clean, quiet and relaxing place to stay.

I have stayed at The Palms many times over the years and I have always found it restful, homely and hospitable. Sue and Chris have always gone the extra mile in terms of a warm welcome, great food and stylish decor. I go there whenever I need to relax and chill, and I have never been disappointed. Thanks, Sue and Chris, for being unfailingly fantastic!

I have found a home away from home for the best week end get aways ever. This guest house is like a little dream lodge with a homely vibe while being classy and upmarket, clean and prestine, and I just love the bathroom in No3. I completely reccomend The Palms if you have a business trip, coming to the soccor in Nelspruit or even just wanting a week end out of your city, JUST DOIT! Sue and Chris, Thank you for our beautiful stay, we will be back in July.
