“Home Away from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Have you ever felt so comfortable in a place that you considered it home? I always feel so at home, comfortable and well taken care of when I visit Asante Guest House. I have come to Asante every year since it opened. The server, Eunice always remembers our favorite foods and drinks. The rooms are clean and beautiful. The property is intimate with 10 rooms yet able to host conferences, including modern Audio visual equipment and the Marimba restaurant for fine catering. I hosted a group of local dentists for a gathering and they were very impressed with the accommodations and reasonable prices.

We stayed at Asante in July of 2011. It had only been open for a few months. The rooms are named for a pattern or type of fabric rather than numbered. Then that fabric is used to accent the decor in the room (lovely!). The breakfast was plentiful and tasty. My husband and daughter are vegetarians (not a habit in the country) and the cooks worked to provide delicious vegetarian dinners for them. The staff was friendly and helpful. They even apologised for noise made by rowdy guests who arrived in the middle of one night. We are going to Swasiland this coming summer and are planning on staying at Asante.

Asante Guest House is an attractive, well kept and clean property, both inside and out. Priced reasonably well with a few room options (price includes excellent full breakfast). Rates are below hotel rates but not lacking in any amenities. Great place for business travellers and those wishing for an upgrade from budget travel accommodations, which Swaziland has many of - and many decent ones. Asante is a restful place; rooms are quite comfortable in size & clean; with AC & well equipped bathrooms including excellent water pressure & plenty of hot water; OK wireless internet connection available on property & in rooms, DSTV & coffee, tea, & kettle. Hotel staff & management are friendly and helpful. Management was flexible and accommodating (good business skills/principles) with out travel schedule and thus we stayed a 5 days longer than originally planned. Further property amenities include a nice size boardroom & larger conference room very suitable for training and business functions. Restaurant serves good selection & quality of food & beverage at reasonable prices. Location is central located in Swaziland and near town centre of Manzini, however not ideal for walking; taxi or car is needed to get around. We enjoyed our 9 day stay at Asante.
