    Great stay in Mbabane

    Great place to stay to explore the greater Mbabane area. Setting was peaceful, quiet, and had nice views. Enjoyed the monkeys running around the grounds. Service was prompt and courteous. Centrally located with easy on off access to main road yet set back for a natural setting.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The service was excellent and the property too. The views were magnificent. The only thing I did not like was that there was a notice on the bath room that No drinking of tap water yet no drinking water or facility was made available. It will help even if they sell water on sight or warn people when they check in
