“great also for business trips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

I have spent 2 weeks at the Place and it has been great!
The rooms are nicely decorated and very functional studios with a kitchenette, bathroom and a very spacious living/bedroom, inclusive of comfortable work station. They are all overlooking a nice pool (July is too cold but I am sure it will be lovely in the summer) and have a small table and chairs outside.
Breakfast is served in your room at a time of your choice, and you can pick an 'English style' breakfast or the light combo of yogurt and muesli.
In the same compound you have a SPA and a really good restaurant, Ramblas, (great quality at very competitive price).
It is only 10 min drive (or 25 min walk) from the city business center.
Very highly recommended - I will definitely come back

Room Tip: There are only a few rooms - all quiet and very nice

We arrived in Mbabane after dark and decided to try The Place even though it only had one review on Trip Advisor. Our phones were dead and we didn't have a map but were able to call from a gas station. Monique from the hotel actually came to get us and show us the way. While it may have been easy to find in daylight with a map, it would've been a long night had she not fetced us. The hotel was brand new and full of all the modern amenities. Digital TV, air conditioning, beautiful big bed, kitchenette and a nice bathroom. Several individual units surround a little pool. There is also a good restaurant on property called Las Ramblas.
Likes: Brand new, very nicely decorated and clean. Good breakfast. Pretty good resaurant - lamb and steak on the menu - and convenient since it was late and we'd not eaten.
Dislkes: Seemed a bit out of the way, but near the golf course. However, this was just an overnight spot for us so this was not a big deal.

I would stay here again.

I stayed here this past weekend and it was amazing. This new property is in an ideal location for business travelers or for tourists. It has a restaurant onsite ( Ramblas ) where a hot breakfast is served but should you leave before the restaurant is open a continental breakfast is put in your room. It has DSTV with a wide variety of channels to chose from. The owner is friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are big and have a separate kitchenette and bathroom.

There is a golf course across the road, the restaurant on site offers tasty value for money meals.
The venue also has a small spa.

I personally will return to this property for my next stay in Swaziland be it business or for my personal travel with family.
