Following our most recent star grading assessment in March 2020, Nut Grove Manor was re-awarded 5 stars in the Boutique Hotel category with a Wedding Venue accolade by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa (TGCSA). We are thrilled to have been promoted from Guest House to Boutique Hotel as it is something the team at Nut Grove have worked tirelessly to achieve.
Aligned to international best practice, our star grading levels meet the stringent quantitative and qualitative core requirements and quality standards set by TGCSA for luxurious accommodation offered in South Africa.
What Is The Difference?
We often get asked whether we are a guesthouse or a boutique hotel. If you look at the definitions, a guesthouse is traditionally a small, privately owned homestead that rents out its rooms offering limited services with fewer rooms than a hotel, usually anything from 4 rooms. Nut Grove Manor has 10 luxury suites, which takes us out of the league of a guesthouse and puts us more in the line of a boutique hotel.
In South Africa, a guesthouse may be called a Bed and Breakfast or B&B and usually offers more of a personal touch than a boutique hotel. This is where Nut Grove Manor differs from a larger hotel where you might become just another guest – we pride ourselves in personalised service. The mantra at Nut Grove Manor is“May all who arrive as guests leave as friends”, a saying which proudly displayed to all who enter our beautiful 5* boutique hotel setting. Being a boutique hotel also ensures that each and every one of our guests receives individual attention and care during their stay – we pride ourselves on Lowveld hospitality!
Once again, you might expect a guesthouse to cater to specific needs as it is more flexible than a hotel, but at Nut Grove Manor we are well known for being accommodating and for ensuring you receive the best experiences and leave with the best memories. We have been told time and again by guests that they simply don’t want to leave!
