About Harmony Guesthouse

The eight-bedroomed Harmony Guesthouse is well-named. The surrounding mountainous regions enjoy a sunshine-filled, tropical micro-climate; so this is a perfect base from which to explore the Mpumalanga region.

Accommodation choices at Harmony Guesthouse include family and double rooms. Satellite TV, air conditioning, a refrigerator, and free Wi-Fi are among the typical inclusions. Some rooms have a patio area.

In addition to the outdoor pool, the gardens are home to a relaxing fountain. Optional services via the 24-hour front desk include an airport shuttle and car hire. Secure on-site parking is free.

Breakfast choices include fully cooked options. Locally, and about one kilometre away, desserts are in demand at The Greek Kouzina. At Cicada, a four-minute drive away, chicken peri peri is a popular menu choice.

It is only about four kilometres to the hiking trails, animals and birdlife of Nelspruit Nature Reserve. Shopping and entertainment, with an adjacent casino, are around seven kilometres away at Riverside Mall.

Positive Reviews

Dedicated owners

The atmosphere, in guests’ opinion, is that of a home away from home. It is, they feel, something which cannot be manufactured. The ambience of the guesthouse is created by the naturally welcoming and helpful owners whose dedication to the happiness of their guests is fully appreciated.

Homely and clean rooms

Guests agree that the rooms are comfortably furnished and very clean. Guests say that the beds are comfortable and there is praise for the bed linen which, they say, smells nice and fresh. Rooms also have that home away from home feel which guests enjoy.

The garden is a perfect spot

The tree-filled garden, with the added abundance of flowers, is loved by guests as being the ideal spot in which to relax and unwind. The addition of the clean and inviting pool is said by guests to be a wonderful bonus.

Negative Reviews

Bathroom privacy issues

Guesthouse-staying guests say that, in this day and age, a private or en-suite bathroom is assumed to be standard. Some rooms here though have shared facilities. Guests see this as being an inconvenient reduction in privacy. Even guests in en-suite rooms complain about these factors because there is no door between the bedroom and bathroom areas.

Morning comes too early

Guests wish that the rooms could have thicker or blackout curtains. The existing ones are very thin so, as dawn breaks, they wake up earlier than they would wish.

A microwave would be a godsend

Although the guest house is not particularly remote, motorised transportation is needed to get to shops and restaurants. Guests feel that the introduction of a microwave in the rooms would enable them to prepare simple meals without the need to leave the property.
