It was my second time in this place, giving it a second chance after a disappointing first experience. The room had disgusting stench probably caused by dirty carpets. The restaurant is good but the quality of the rooms is poor. Rooms are old and some not well kept. Staff is undertrained. At breakfast I was asked my room number 4...

We stayed at Mantenga Lodge during our short visit to Swaziland in late March. First the positives - Staff were very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed both our buffet breakfast and dinner the night before.

I was 3 days in Swaziland and stayed in Mantega Lodge. I think this hotel is really nice: the room is clean, the bed, service and breakfast are really good! Besides the room rate is really worth. Perhaps, just one thing is that you have to walk around 10-15 min to get to the nearest shopping center. But next the...
