Apart from needing a major revamp , this previously better than average establishment has lost the plot .... they are allowing unaccompanied teenagers to stay over AND access the bar . The corridors were full of cigarette smoke and buzzing with drunk teens , some displaying their affection towards one another in public. It was generally unpleasant for me and... More

The hotel needs a makeover. The lift/elevator feels as though it is going to either come to a shuddering somewhere inbetween floors or drop precipitously into the basement.

We came with quite low expactations, but very much enjoyed our three day, two night stay. We have previously frequented several of the lodges and B&B's in and around the Valley, but the Lugogo Sun offered a totally different vibe. Rather than having a predominantly European tourist and/or Jo'burg/Maputo expat clientele, Lugogo seemed to have more local Swazi punters, which... More

Great location, well maintained hotel with amazing 5 star buffet and breakfasts (spoilt for choice). Guest rooms overlooking pool a little noisy during day as close to highway and balcony sliding door seals gone long ago, however night time traffic noise is quiet so only an issue during the day. Maybe double glazing or new sliding door seals would help... More

I read quite a few reviews on this site before my stay and I was a bit concerned about my booking. My concerns were unnecessary. The hotel was quite full, but we never felt crowded.

Old furniture,TV and lifts. What hotel has house keeping on the same level and next to guests rooms? The staff, cleaning ladies and handymen hang out outside the rooms from morning to evening. I would go back only if I had absolutely no other choice.
