We visited the restaurant twice while in Swaziland in Dec 2015. The first time we sat outside which is beautiful and peaceful. The gardens are beautifully kept and staff are friendly and well taught. The food was delicious and the menu has a lot to offer. This gem in Swaziland is a must to see and experience. The second time... More

We had booked for two night stay as part of our visit to Swaziland. We didn't stay the first night because the directions on the website were incorrect and we couldn't find it so definitely double check the address. Once we did find it though, it was worth the trouble. It is stunning, we stayed in one of the smallest... More

This one was just a little stop in our travel from durban to the kruger park. Good for one night. The room was clean and big. A bit "rococo" style but why not. It's not the most charming one but globally the service is good.

Before we booked in we wanted to visit the Swazi Candles factory but the directions given by the hotel receptionist sent us all round the district while the outlet turned out to be only around 8 kms from the hotel! She now knows how to get there! When we returned we were told we did not have a reservation depite... More

Wow, what a lovely hotel! OK, it's largely artificial and not the 'real' Swaziland but why not spoil yourself if you're on holiday? Thankfully, after reading about satnav problems on other reviews, we found it was well signposted from the main road. Although there was a power cut in the accommodation areas on arrival which lasted a few hours, the... More

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

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
