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.

We arrived early evening after a 7 hour trip and were met by a dour, very unwelcoming officious receptionist who made us feel like a complete inconvenience. After asking for a porter, (no one available), he escorted us like a prison guard to our room. Our room was a down an unlit pathway at the edge of the property. The... More

Very nice chalets with loads of space. Quality bedding and peaceful surroundings. The restaurant is very good and the service is excellent. Breakfast menu is good although limited for choice. Internet Wifi is very poor in the chalets but at the poolside not bad. Will surely return.

The room was big and nicely decorated but the service was not the way you could expect in this price category. Upon arrival it was raining but noone was taking care of our luggage, nor after checking in. DIY seems to be the concept here. In the room there was a Nespresso coffee machine but no capsules. Wifi is very... More

We chose based on so many 5 star reviews. Setting our expectations high, we were disappointed with the poor service. The resort boasts 5 star rating, the service is 2-3 stars. Non functioning telephones, the staff would "forget" that we have ordered drink or a meal. Often, too often. The pool was not usable for the first 3 days (dirty... More

Talk about an experience never to be repeated! Service at the restaurant was just terrible, apart from the terrible (and overpriced wine) our waiter greeted us with what can only be described as disdain. The food was average and I never really felt welcome or comfortable. When I requested a doggy bag, a waitress took my plate to a table... More

we stayed there with my family, and had the loveliest holiday that i can recall. The restaurant is a real treat, you take your breakfast with a lovely view of the gardens, with peacocks walking around, the cottages provide privacy but not isolated. There are various restaurants, providing different sitting areas ample change. The restaurant sitting on the lake is... More
