Our assigned room wasn't ready on time, so we were given a double family room with a huge bed and enough space for 4 people. The service was excellent. breakfast was good with a generous array of options.

I think as far as hotels in the centre of Manzini go, this is a no brainer..... The George Hotel (recently sold by Mr Tums, and no longer the Tum's George) is the best and most affordable, so don't look any further! I stay here with clients on tour, and as a guide I get to see many hotels all over the world. This is not better or worse than many of them.

PROS: The rooms are fairly large and reasonably well equipped by European standards. (They have coffee stations which in South Africa and Swaziland is pretty standard). The bed is comfortable. The bathroom is adequate. The garden with the swimming pool is great on a hot summer afternoon, and the bar in the garden sells beer on tap! The food served in the dining room is of a very high standard, portions are large, and it is well presented. There is off the street parking. If you hang out in the bar, you can meet the locals.

CONS: Several readers have mentioned the water problem.... we had that too. It was sorted out quite fast after I made a scene.... Apparently there is a booster pump that provides additional pressure to get water to the rooms on the first floor.... and this is not always switched on.... I don't enjoy having to fill in my preferences for dinner at reception before checking in, but I guess if the food is good, the extra effort is worth it.... The business centre is not very well equipped, so even if it has several pc's you can't always read your mail.... I guess that's what we mean when we say... "this is Africa"..... on the other hand, if you have a 3G modem and are travelling with a laptop on business, the signal is strong. Note that in South Africa, some hotels provide free WiFi for the guests, but this is NOT the norm....

Would I recommend this hotel?
Yes, especially for business travelers that need to be centrally located in Manzini, and for a quick overnight stop if you are traveling through and want a place to stay with rooms that are comfortable. I would not recommend it as a long-term tourist stop-over, and would rather suggest staying at one of the properties run by Big Game Parks of Swaziland....

If you want to visit some place that is typical, culturally enlightening and inetresting, but not tourist trendy.... I would suggest visiting the Manzini Market. It is located just down the road, has a great selection of curios and craft to entertain the tourist urges, but also has local people selling all sorts of traditional remedies, clothing, fruit and household goods... definitely worth seeing!

Tho it's well located the hotel facilities aren't the best I've seen around.
The internet only works near the reception and not in the rooms.
The "free internet" it0s a voucher with 1 day of use.
Not a great place if you are disabled.

At 12:30 in the morning, I was awoken by a prostitute and her pimp trying to break into my room. They insisted on seeing my face and that I had told them to come. I bolted the door and waited for them to leave . The next day, I checked out and they charged me twice for one night and will not return my money. It has been two months and still no word. Do not stay at this place!

I was travelling with a group of 12 and on arrival we learned on our own - no notice from hotel -that there was no water in the hotel. This means, no flushing the toilets, no brushing teeth or taking a shower. Although we were promised in the evening, that the problem would be fixed by 11pm, there was still no water by next morning 7am, when we left the hotel. There was no attempt made, to supply the rooms with bottled water so we could at least brush our teeth. The rooms were clean and big but since the water or lack of was a big problem, we do not remember the hotel fondly.

This hotel is included on Kuoni's 'Best of Africa' Tour. It is in Swaziland and tourists only seem to pass through Swaziland! There is little infrastructure for tourists.

Having said that it was clean and comfortable - like a good B&B. Our room overlooked the swimming pool. One odd thing though - you are presented with a dinner menu, with tick boxes, when you check in and have to fill in your choices BEFORE you go to your room. Service in the restaurant was bad despite giving your order several hours in advance. Surprisingly the food was good. The buffet breakfast was also good.

This is not a hotel to stay for more than a night (whilst passing through Swaziland)!

If you care more about what your breakfast meal is I'd say stay at the George while in manzini. It has a good breakfast buffet with lots to choose from. They make good cocktails too (uhmm not for breakfast though).

I stayed at The George Hotel for 15 days and really enjoyed it. The employees were extremely helpful and friendly. We LOVED the hot chocolate. The breakfast choices were not great, but it was better than what i expected going into the trip. I will be staying here again next year.

Even if the internal hotel yard and facility (Swimming pool + outside bar) is pleasant, many unpleasant surprises made our stay not plaisant.
First we had to change our room due to a non-working safe, then the water has been cut during my shower, then the restaurant ran out of coffee during the breakfast rush which conducted to not be able to take a 2nd coffee before leaving and worse a very noisy cooling system out side our room, made us a very bad sleeping night...

If you can avoid this hotel do not hesitate to do it!
