Have stayed in this hotel a number of times for business, and really wish I didn't have to again. Air conditioner leaks, staff have no respect for keeping noise levels down (who clears the driveway of leaves at 6 am?), they chase you out your room at 7:30 for "cleaning", the ONLY chair in the room was missing a leg,...

The carpets are worn, the TVs are obsolete, internet connectivity is a nightmare, the food/ menu is standard, there was hair on the bathroom floor on my first night there, in the mornings it looked like room service was done in a haste, on...

We stayed here for 1 night in room 404. The room was fine with 2 double beds, a desk & stool, a small table and chair, A/C, tea & coffee making facilities and an OTB shower. There was no fridge or safe but safety deposit boxes were available at reception. A lift serviced all floors. We did not have dinner... More

Stayed here for two nights mid-week on my first visit to Swaziland – which was a holiday. The hotel is well located on the main MR103 road right next to the Royal Swazi Sun, with easy access to Mbabane, Manzini, and the various locations in the Ezulwini Valley. It is an older hotel but in good condition and well looked... More

This large hotel is a bit tired and in need of updating, My room was spacious but smelled strongly of smoke when I arrived, it was clean and functional. The sunbathing area and swimming pool were really nice with a poolside bar available too. The food was acceptable but nothing special, there is a nice bar area with sports on... More

We enjoyed our meal at the hotel. The staff where hospitable. We enjoyed a win in the pool, but the water was cold at this time of the year. The rooms where worn, and there where some cockroaches around.

We spent a wonderful weekend at the Hotel to attend a wedding. The accommodation was comfortable, with a great breakfast buffet. The staff were friendly and ensured that our stay was smooth. We also were provided with snacks from the bar to enjoy in the room. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

We went to Lugogo for a short 2 night getaway and had a really great time. The breakfast were great, typical Sun International buffet breakfasts. The staff were friendly and accomodating. This hotel is right next door to the Royal Swazi Spa where we went quad biking. Do yourself a favour and go quad-biking there, it was excellent!!

Stayed over on business for 2 nights recently. Generally the hotel needs some refurbishment - dated but clean. It is a very busy hotel with tour groups frequenting it very often. The meals are excellent, buffet style, but somewhat expensive - even the drinks in the bar come at a price. WiFi available for free up to a limit per... More
