Piggs Peak Hotel & Casino
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Piggs Peak
Reviewed 12 January 2010

My partner and I and my mother were travelling through Swaziland and decided to stay here. We were quoted one price, charged it and paid on the spot by card and then as we walked away to go up to our room, the receptionist ran after us to stop and tell us she had charged the wrong price. I can't remember details of prices etc.. but they basically charged the two of us (my partner and I) way more than they charged my mum for her room and we were in 2 identical rooms next to each other. The lamp shade in our room had a large burnt hole in it and it was generally a little worn down. This is the most money we spent for accommodation during the entire trip as our trip all down the coast of South Africa was spent in Bed and Breakfast establishments that were far more reasonably priced.

Apparently the hotel has been remodeled since the awful reviews. I was just there and it was quite nice. The elevators were not working, but the staff delivered the bags, so no problem. The dinner and breakfast buffet's were quite nice and the pool is beautiful. I didn't see anything that the poor reviewer was talking about. I was there with Smartours.

This hotel is a Dump. There was stuffing coming out of room furniture, the mattresses were nasty and shabby, the water from the taps was so dirty and disgusting we used bottled water for 'bathing'.
The staff seemed oblivious to any of these problems being worrysome and it took a 'stand' by our tour group in the lobby to even get the bottled water made available without extra charge.
We chose not to eat from the restaurant, as a Chemist in our group pointed out, the brackish water was all ANYONE had to wash with, including kitchen staff. Thank goodness for 'trip snacks' most had packed for it was a long night at this hotel. They may have a Rolls Royce parked out front, but don't let it fool you. The hotel rooms are filthy and brokendown, elevators don't work (causing a handicapped member of our tour group to barely leave her room whilst there) and the staff seems to have only received training in giving you the, 'I am sorry there is nothing I can do' answer for any problem.
In doing some research it seems the Atlas Bus Company which many tour operators, including ours (Smartours) use, has some deal with this property which explains why we were forced to spend a night in the Swaziland version of the Bates Hotel, instead of travelling on and spending the night at the wonderful accomodations we found the next night at Kruger National Park.
If you are signing up for a South African Adventure, strongly protest any stay at this shameful facility.

What a disaster! Arriving as night fell, and greeted by AK47 toting guards, I made it to the front desk to claim my reservation, confirmed a couple of days earlier by the hotel by email. Turns out they'd bounced me, due to holding an All-Africa Poker Tournament and, as I was not a poker player, I was cleartly not likely to spend enough money. They did direct me to a newly buily facility 30km away, which many faint-hearts might not have been happy with in the dark in Swaziland.
