My husband and I spent a weekend at Mhlati Guest cottages as had a 40th birthday party at another lodge down the road. We had a fabulous stay at Mhlati. The rooms are so clean and very comfortable. Eric and Jan are excellent hosts. The breakfasts were amazing, especially the eggs' benedict! Lovely stay and we will definitely be back.

The cottages are charming, luxurious, clean, and exceptionally well maintained. Breakfast is delicious. The hosts are friendly, helpful, and interesting to chat with. Location is great - a few minutes from Malalene gate. What more could you ask for?

This was our third stay at Mhlati and simply the best in this area! The fact that this classy guesthouse is owner run makes all of the difference. Egg's benedict prepared by the owner himself was simply delicious. It's the care and attention to detail that makes your stay here. You can feel the pride oozing from the team! Thanks... More

We stayed in Malelane between 13-16 June and stayed at this guest house. Eric and Janet are very warm and welcoming in their hospitality. They lend a personal touch to the breakfast and general upkeep of the place. The rooms with the thatched roofs and ethnic interior give a very homely feel, with the right amount of comfort. Definitely recommended... More

Travelled to Malelane for a week for work - Such a lovely bed and breakfast. Service was great and the conversation was even better. Close to nice touristy places. Jan and Eric are wonderful hosts. Definitely give this place a visit if it's ever on your way somewhere that goes past there - totally worth it.
