Whilst we visit regularly on business trips to Swaziland we are appreciative of the quite surrounds ( after the trucks sloe down ) and normally only wish for a quiet evening and a good sleep. We get it .

After a long day of riding it was comforting to come to such a clean and neat establishment. We shared the room with our teenage son which was perfect as there were two spacious rooms with a bathroom to share. Wifi was available at cost. The grounds are very well kept and a real oasis with the inviting swimmingpool. Breakfast... More

All the staff we're looking like they freakin' hate to work there. Barely looked at you, didn't do anything with a smile.. Really makes you feel unwelcome. The food also took too long and wasn't what we expected. Only thing nice about it was the view over Swaziland.

Great place to stop just a short drive inside Swaziland. Lovely quirky cottage and fun dinner in the next door restaurant. Really good crafts here as well, we should have bought more as we didn't find other craft selection as good anywhere else on the trip.
