Beetleloop Guesthouse in Nelspruit:
Type: Guesthouse Accommodation
Approx: From R490 per night
We have found this guesthouse about 8 years ago and built a friendship with the owners Rina and Piet. Whenever we travel to Nelspruit, Beetleloop is our accommodation of choice. We planned our first long distance trip from Johannesburg to Nelspruit on the bike. We did not want to go on the highway and planned the route through a number of small towns to Nelspruit.
We left Joburg at around 11am and travelled down the N17 past Springs to Bethal, where we stopped for a short water break. Then along R38 to Hendrina where we stopped again for some snacks and energy drinks. We continued along the R38 through Carolina and Badplaas to Nelspruit. Riding down through the mountains into Nelspruit was beautiful, even after a full day (5 hours) on the road.
This was a unique experience spending the whole day riding with Heather on the back and talking together on our Scala Rider kit brings us closer together as a couple.
What a relief to get to Beetleloop and see Rina waiting for us. She gave us our special honeymoon suite that we always book. The beds are enormous and comfortable and this evening seemed to invite us.
The hospitality is friendly, warm and like family. Breakfast in the morning is always professionally presented and extremely tasty. We absolutely love staying here… There is also so much to see and do in and around Nelspruit, Hazyview, Sabie, Graskop and Pilgrims Rest.
