“Excellent!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

I was here last month and stayed for a total of 4 nights. The rooms were great, the view was stunning, and the food.... AMAZING!! So good, and so delish! Their bacon avo salad.... I was obsessed with it and now I make it a few times a week since I've been back home.

I highly recommend staying here and would stay here again in a second!

We spent two nights at Malandela's as part of a longer 3-week trip. It is an attractive B&B with gorgeous gardens. Rooms were simple and didn't have enough lighting but had some nice decor touches. Breakfast was tasty and the restaurant on the grounds was very good. The staff was not especially helpful or friendly, although there was nothing to complain about either. Malandela's is part of an incredible complex that includes a concert venue and several boutiques selling Swazi crafts - it's a fascinating place. I didn't stay other places in Swaziland, but have to believe this is one of the best places you could stay there.

Room Tip: There is a nice double room on the second floor that was good for families.

We enjoyed our three days at Malandelas and can recommend this lovely and cute place to everyone who appreciates a nice B&B in a great surrounding with a nice pool and garden. Breakfast was great, staff very friendly and helpful and the nearby House on Fire just amazing. The room was pretty small but very cosy and nicely designed. Would definitely love to come back another day.

Malandela is a lovely bed & breakfast, located in the middle of a wonderful tropical garden. The pool looks very clean and is quite large. The restaurant nearby is not to be missed with good food, reasonnable prices and good "vibes".
The breakfast is really very good with high quality home made products (but small portions).
We would have expected a warmer welcome...

This is by far the BEST place you could stay in Swaziland. A Really affordable Bed and Breakfast offering the facilities you would otherwise expect in a five star establishment. Really stunning well looked after gardens, Incredible staff who are lovely and welcoming. The place is clean, a lot of detail is paid attention to and you couldn't be more at ease. With a lovely farm pub to watch sport and have a drink, a beautiful farm house restaurant to order meals from i cant stress what good value for money this establishment is! Love to Happiness, Zandi and Lungile - you guys do a fantastic job, see you soon x

What an amazing place Malandela's is... a total and pleasant surprise. We had a huge room/apartment with large comfy bed, bathroom with awesome big shower. Room beautifully decorated with quaint African theme carvings. Dinner was at the local Malandela's restaurant-pub. Great vibe, excellent food at really good value for money. Breakfast on the B&B side was very good too. The House of Fire is just an awesome amazing place, and hopefully one day we can go back and attend a function/event/party there... must be a crazy setting for a party/concert!

I was a bit worried when we arrived and they had mis-booked us, we got a fine consulation room. It was quite beautiful but seemed to be just a bit lacking, like chairs... Also, the shower took a long time to correct temperature. The gardens were beautiful, the breakfast was good and filling, even for big appetites, but our last day there the staff really didn't take good care in mantaining the museli bar area, and we had had fruit the other 2 mornings but it wasn't out on the last day. Also, the pool was freezing cold! House on Fire is a neat place and we really enjoyed the little shops around and the internet cafe people were friendly and helpful, but I do think as a guest at the B&B you should get at least one free wifi voucher. The restaurant had good food too. This was a really beautiful place, it was close to other touristy stuff because we had a car, but there were just a few small things lacking. The security guard washed our car and we really appreciated that too!
