I have never stayed here but the restaurant is fantastic. The grounds alone are worth a visit but the food and service have never disappointed. The steaks and good and the seafood is excellent as well. Lovely atmosphere inside as well but worth having a drink outside beforehand.

This has got to be one of the top rated hotels/ resorts in Swaziland, accompanied by an equally spectacular restaurant. The chalets are luxuriously spacious and spaced far enough apart so as to feel alone - the abundance of vegetation and trees add to the serenity of the place as do the roaming peacocks and other birdlife. The level of... More

We had some difficulty following the directions to the hotel (eventually arrived with the help of a police escort!) but it was so worth taking the trouble to find it. The gardens are stunning and make for a truly beautiful setting for the hotel. We were very pleased with the standard and quality of our room - it felt spacious... More

I love this place. Beautiful, spacious rooms with high, thatched, vaulted ceilings, roomy bathrooms with soft fluffy towels and great amenities. The shower was one of those which feel like heavy rainwater cascading onto you. The bed linen... sigh... I can't say enough about it. The sheets were so beautifully soft (I even considered asking the management where they get... More

I didn't stay in the hotel but visited the gardens and had dinner. The gardens and waterway walks are simply beautiful. It is a very relaxed, quiet area to stroll through. Lovely landscaping and animal sculptures throughout. The restaurant was nice, clean and enough space so that even when slightly busy you have privacy. The menu was large and our... More

Only possible to find the hotel if you are coming through border closest to Johannesburg. If not hopeless. Not on any current GPS maps. Coordinates took me miles off road for three hours. Best to put town name in GPS And ask at Total fuel station for final destination. Disinterested staff upon arrival. Had room service supper which hit the... More

I took my partner for his very first trip to Swaziland and made reservations via email. Having never been there myself, I was not sure what to expect. I must admit, we were both bowled over by the sheer splendor and tranquility of the hotel. The facilities, our room, the grounds and the restaurant (which served the most delicious food;... More

We found the choices of Luxury accommodations in Swaziland were almost non existent and Summerfield Botanical Garden looked like our best choice. We arrived, after some difficulty finding the place, to a warm and welcome reception. Our room, an Executive Suite, was large, private, comfortable and well decorated, the grounds were beautiful and immaculate. We had a drink in the... More

perfectly located in the mysterious Swaziland, rooms are large with great bathrooms. Close to all major attractions and tourist ideals. Resturant is great but ideal for groups and not the couple experience. Great service from the staff very accommodating especially when hosting our media.

Excellent 5 star facility in the middle of the beautiful botanical gardens.Restaurant food was also of a high standard.A jewel in the middle od swaziland.Makes a change from royal swazi hotel. Note Nkonyeni golf estate greens are in a shocking condition.
