This was our second stay at Mantenga Lodge and we look forward to another! The staff is very accommodating and the setting serene. We loved swimming in the pool, shopping at nearby handcraft markets as well as the mall. My favorite is always the wonderful breakfast on the deck overlooking the mountain.

It started bad. We arrived to be given a room below the price we paid. In fact this room is not even advertised on the website. When we asked to be moved reception demanded to know what was wrong with the room. The room we were moved to was the family room we paid for. The first room was small...

Mantenga is a great lodge with a real holiday feel. The view from the restaurant is beautiful and an ideal spot to have lunch. Really quiet and out of the busy town. The food is also really good and very welcoming staff

Great, place, clean rooms, helpful staff. Good location. It was unfortunate they didn't have bigger family rooms (mostly adults) , however, they are still great. The gardens were beautiful, and the pool is also a great add.

Nice stay overall with beautiful view of the Swazi mountains. Staff friendly and very helpful. Air conditioner was not heating up as it was cold. Could also have been improved by giving us a double bed rather two singles as requested

This is a fantastic lodge in a beautiful environment with a number of rooms to choose from, a pool, restaurant and bar, and nearby craft shops. The food is wonderful and it is quite special in many ways. My only complaint is that there is a lot of tourist business via tours and local conferences. Therefore the restaurant is often...

The Mantenga lodge is located in a pretty area not far from Mbabane. We first did a booking for one night only but then immediately booked a second night as we loved the hotel so much. From the balcony of our lovely little hut we had a view to the forest. We could sit outside and enjoy the nature's sound...

An amazing place, localized in an amazing region. The staff is extremely nice and will help you plan the entire trip. It is a place that I will definitely visit and stay lodged in. The only problem are the bugs but when you are in the country place.........
