very friendly. Rooms are great. They where very elpful and booked my drive in jrueger for. Only 8 km from crocidile gate. Food is delicous and prices are good. Wonderful owners and staff. If your in the area you will not regret staying here
"Disappointing visit to hotel with good reputation!"
Poor value indeed. Management very disinterested. Did not try to engage with us at all, so we did not even know what was available except golf and game drive.
Played golf on Legend, charged full fees despite just being cored. Golf Pro did not even speak with us despite very few people around. Getting information out of game driver was like pulling teeth (did see lions, giraffe and elephants though).
And don't get us started on the food. We were driven to 3 different locations and it ranged from dreadful to OK. When asked by waiters how things are, it is always easier to say good when it is the opposite. It is not their fault.
No bar or coffee shop or gym......staff did not know how to fill mini bar. Golf club out of stock of wine, food listed on menu, even ball markers.
Enjoy quiet nights by the fireside and days hiking around the Mpumalanga highlands. Watching anglers pull their lures in and out of the trout dams. Incredible meals by the chefs and free flowing drinks. Great stay for couples.
I enjoyed my stay at Ezulwini very much. While it may not be an ultra luxury resort, it is very nice and well kept and provides a feel like you are among family (albeit in the middle of the bush). I went solo on a business trip and was treated great. Food was still brought for about ten people and it was fresh and very good. Sean, the manager, hung out having beers with me and discussed south Africa, and on another night showed us the beautiful wine cellar. That same night, a full barbecue with African song and dance was given by the employees and it seemed authentic and was great. Finally, the driver and tracker Lawrence and Conrad were unbelievable and really made the experience. They went above and beyond and I actually saw all big 5 on my first tour out. I stayed at the more modern and larger Billy's lodge but also took a ride over to River and you can't go wrong either way. I highly recommend Ezulwini for the value offered in that price range and would definitely return.
