A beautiful hotel with lovely grounds and views but the service and rooms need attention. Needs a refurb and staff need training. The golf course is great and common areas are lovely. Feels like it's living off it's location and setting and is failing short in other areas. Great potential.

Some reviewers describe this hotel as past it. I do not think so. It remains the best option in Swaziland anyway but it should be judged in the context of the slight time warp which exists in this small African kingdom. Yes it could do with a face lift but I worry it might lose its charm. The food is... More

I really want to rate this property Excellent or even Very Good. It has potential on so many fronts. My bellman was wonderful. He was a 5 star concierge. He carried my bags up the stairs (no elevator), opened the room, turned on the temperature control, showed me how to work the television, got me ice...asked if there was anything... More

Made just a one night stop here on the way to Mozambique from White River. I would not have stayed anywhere else. It was my first stay there and thus I do not have anything to compare it to. It does feel very colonial and perhaps a little old. The pool and bar area was simple but still quite nice... More

This was a visit mid October 2014... I've been slow to catch up! I'd agree with other reviewers that this place is definitely not a 5 star, though location and grounds are good. It is, though, rather soulless in a lovely and fascinating country. The rooms, at the very least, need a proper makeover - carpets are dirty, paintwork scuffed... More

What a lovely place to visit, nature is excellent. When one has to review the staff services at the Spa then it lends one to believe that this one highly recommended resort has really lost it's key objective and that it to make sure that guest have a 5 star experience. The spa personnel did not want to work they... More

My wife and I stayed here one night on an organised tour and although the hotel was acceptable by the standards in Africa we were not happy being given a smokers room. When asking reception for a change of room as the tobacco smell was bad all they could offer was that staff will come and "spray the room. This... More

The hotel, dedicate in 1966 according to an outdoor plaque, shows its age. The rooms are clean but need modernizing. Staff is curtious. Food is average. Respectable accommodations in a city offering few alternatives. Storms earlier in the week I stayed there caused wifi to disappear for three of my four days.

We actually visited the royal swazi spa for our honeymoon. We had the suite and the food,drinks and gaming were excellent! I would give this a 5STAR. Only negative thing I noticed was the service at the pool were poor I had to go to the bar myself to order cocktails
