The garden is stunning. Nice view. My room was ok. The food in the restaurant is good. It is wifi in the area, but it is very expensive, and a bit slow. Service is also ok, both at the B&B and in the restaurant.

This place is very beautiful. There is a restaurant, a bar, and a kind of sculpture park on the grounds. The rooms are artsy and well maintained. Great food at the restaurant, the ox-tail stew was amazing! There is a concert venue on the property but no one was playing while we were there. i would highly recommend this place...

This converted farmhouse is just wonderful. It offers scenic views and first rate hospitality. There is no better food in Swaziland than that offered on Malendela's wonderful Farmhouse Restaurant. They have a great pub, a few great shops like Baobab Batik and Gone Rural, and the whole thing is very artsy and creative. I have been going to this place...
