Our last pit-stop on our getaway to the Royal Kingdom of Swaziland saw us having parting drinks at the beautiful Summerfield Botanical Gardens. The Google maps location had us driving around Manzini for quite a bit more "unplanned" sight-seeing. This turned our lunch date into a drinks session instead. The beauty of the gardens though definitely made up for the... More

I normally don't write reviews but feel I have to for this one....We initially booked for 2 nights but after the first night we extended and stayed to four nights. Last time we where here about 3 years ago we stayed in the Chalets and loved it so much we vowed to return whenever we visit Swaziland again, and we... More

As a first timer coming to Swaziland, we came here for dinner and Sanele was a great sport.. He just made everything easy for us and kept checking if we were fine with everything, so just to show that the staff there is really good and very friendly... I had prawn cocktail for starters and compliments to the chef and... More

We spent two days at this wonderful place. We found all the staff very friendly and helpful. Both dinner and breakfast were great. They have a great wine selection. We definitely would return on our next visit to Swaziland.

First time in Swaziland and stayed at this hotel based on TripAdvisor Reviews. Would not return to this hotel. The customer service is horrific. At check in, they had the wrong date and wrong room type for our reservation. I provided the correct date and room type and confirmed the amount that I PREPAID. We arrived late at night, it's...

Beautiful garden and nice and relaxing place to stay. The location is pretty close to Manzini centre and off a main road. The garden and rooms are well maintained, and the restaurant is dreamy! Food is good and prices are very reasonable. Breakfast is delicious and plenty. Service is so-so. In that some staff are very sweet and accommodating, others... More

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
