5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Unfortunately we stayed just for one night at this beautiful place. Our room was big and with a little kitchenette. Everything was lovely decorated and perfectly clean. They provide good sheets and you need them for the cold nights. Also the breakfast was really delicious. The staff is helfpul and friendly. We can highly recommand this place and we hope to come back soon!

Plenty of charm, stunning botanical gardens to relax in and wide vistas from the restaurant if you want a feeling of space. Food excellent. Staff charming. Rooms were wonderfully quirky and creative. Pretty pool to relax by. Lots of little nooks and crannies to explore for children. Loved it.

Room Tip: All have their charm

Been there for 2 nights, room was stylishly decorated, with natural colours - not like a typical b&b as known from SA, more basic, but really cozy, with recycled materials (we had the one on the ground floor in the brown/orange house). pool was nice and clean. breakfast was good, staff was friendly. the best about this place is the wonderful garden which is absolutely well-tended, huge like a park and simply beautiful. you can stroll around and feel like in a botanical garden. a good restaurant is next door, also very nice curio shops.
the only downer about the location: it's at a rural road, the noise of the cars disturb the tranquility.

My wife and I stayed at Malandela's 5 nights Feb 2012. Wow, what a treat! The place was clean and the ambiance was "Chill out" relaxing. If you have to be in an airconditioned place, this might not be the place for you, but we were comfortable with the fan provided and slep well.
During our stay there were artists next door at House on Fire" and the music was superb.
The breakfasts were individualized and fantastic. The best thing about the breakfasts to me was the variety of beautiful music they played in the background. We kept asking who the artists were to almost every song. The visuals of Swaziland and Malandela's were stunning.

Our 2nd visit to Malandela's in Swaziland while on bikes. Fantastic spot with great staff and service, good food, large and leafy outdoor sitting area, thatched as well as under tree. And a cosy pub almost English!

We only stayed at the B&B for one night but it was a great find. Set on some lovely grounds with the House on Fire space on the grounds as well. We got a massive room that looked more like a large studio apartment. The food at the restaurant was and the arts and crafts on sale within the House on Fire area were very good! We wished we could have stayed longer.
