I was greeted with big Swazi smiles, a cheerful country atmosphere and the most delicious dinners and breakfasts where I helped myself to homemade pickles and jams. Ruth and her team make sure guests travel on safely to their next destination so that their Swaziland experience is an unforgettable one.

"Foresters Arms is great. The setting is gorgeous and the rooms, while not the height of luxury, are remarkably pleasant with patios outside but it is the little touches and extras which really make it : a stove in the room with a substantial supply of logs; porterage of bags to and from the room; morning tea brought to the room; cars washed in the morning; the liberty to select as many of the options for each course at dinner as one wishes. Much stems, I suspect, from the personal supervision of Ruth. A lovely place to stay and we hope to return"

"It was wonderful - have stayed at many hotels over the years and whilst probably there is one with better food or one with a better view and one with better bathroom overall this is the best - there are no weakness and I think the beds are the best anywhere Highly recommended for the best relaxation hotel anywhere"
