Malandela’s Guest House

This converted farmhouse allows a limited number of guests to be part of the Malandela’s experience.  Offering eight uniquely decorated rooms situated in magnificent indigenous gardens that are just a short walk from the heart of the centre, where you will find our Farmhouse Restaurant and Country Pub (open 7 days a week).

From the restaurant you can enjoy views of the scenically beautifully Swazi mountains and ponder the sculptural towers rising from the lawn, a creative mingling from renowned performance venue and sculpture gallery House on Fire. The stone horse carousel is a favorite with kids and young explorers. You can stay connected with our center-wide Wi-Fi service and browse the best in Swazi hand-craft and design in our retail stores. Get advise on activities in the Kingdom; from short community tours to sporting adventures and overnight bookings at the on-site All Out Tourism Booking Office.

Back at the Guest House, you can enjoy a little dip in the guest pool then retire to one of the single, double and family en-suite guest rooms. Each room is uniquely designed utilizing local artists work in a contemporary African style, a fusion of eclectic personality and homely comforts. Many customers comment on the delicious breakfast as well as the friendly service from this creative and family orientated centre.

“Lovely B&B in Ezulwini Valley in Swaziland”

“One of our favorite places in Swaziland, with great food, shops and internet access. Beautiful setting overlooking sugar cane fields. Loved the room. Poolside available for fun and sun. Also our favorite place to eat.”.

Colleen Copple, Nairobi, May – 2017

“Rural country B&B plus Restaurant and Bar”
“This B and B has 8 individual units spread round a fantastic garden. All rooms have beams and the upper rooms are thatched. 3 different types of breakfasts are included in the B & B rate. The range of food in the restaurant is very wide and is very well cooked. During our stay we had steaks which were correct as you ordered them. Medium rare was medium rare. chicken livers were good, as were the baby chicken. We also enjoyed the Graham Beck Railroad to go with the steaks. This site also has the House on Fire Entertainment Arena. Whilst we were there when a wedding was taking place it did not interfere with our meals. It did in fact add to the attraction of the restaurant.

“Two Nights in Swaziland”
“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 to stay.”

‘“My favorite place in southern Africa”

“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 for over 30 years and it never disappoints.”
