We stayed just one night in this lodge but we really enjoyed it. Our room had a beautiful view on the mountains and was perfect for our stay. The dinner was ok except of the Malta pudding which was great. The breakfast offers you everything you need and gives you a great start to your day.

We stayed one night when travelling through eSwatini but the place is also good to stay longer. Rooms are basic but clean. You can relax around the pool or on the terrace. It is not close to the town but the restaurant is good. Advice to ask for directions when you book because it is not so easy to find.

Not somewhere I chose to stay myself but was as part of a group holiday and we couldn't get rooms in the Milwane Wildlife Sanctuary which is about a 15-20 mins drive away. The place was an old Christian centre and is now trying to be an English country lodge. Rooms aren't particularly inspiring from the outside but spacious and clean inside albeit a little dated, especially the windows. Bathroom was modern though with good shower pressure and hot water. Views are great over the hills nearby and down into the valley and while I was there we had a dramatic lightening storm which took out the wi fi! The main part of the lodge contained a dining room with a good view and the breakfast we had there was excellent with choice of hot and cold breakfast items and cooked to order eggs. However we also had an evening meal there, with some of the group opting for the buffet and some for the al a carte menu which wasn't so good. Some of the buffet was cold and they had run out of many of the options on the al a carte menu. Prices were also high and there is no separate bar area. Didn't try the pool as not warm enough when there but was in a nice setting in the grounds. It's located a 10 mins drive up a large hill from the nearest town and so not in walking distance to any amenities. Overall a comfortable enough stay but wouldn't choose to stay there again as felt more like I was in the Lake District than Africa!.

This turned out to be a nice place - albeit older - but it had good Wi-Fi. We could hear some guest noise through our door, but it wasn't terribly noisy, so it wasn't a horrible pain. Our window view wasn't bad either Dinner started at 6:00 in the main area, so we decided to check out the pool first. The evening cooled down quickly, so just my husband ended up jumping in the chilly pool. We went to the dining room where they offered a buffet (but those can be of limited value to vegetarians). Instead, we ordered off the menu. I had Spaghetti aglio e olio, and my husband had a Cheese and Tomato Omelette. I don't normally even like omelettes, but for some reason, I found the pasta dish combined with the omelette to be tasty, and we have definitely replicated a version of this dish since we've been home. We ended the meal with Hot Malva Pudding.
