I've been going to this buffet since I was about 8 years old and I'll stop when I'm dead. The food, atmosphere and activities are all top notch but mostly I go for the hostess, she's amazing. Ruth is Foresters Arms

This is a buffet style of food. It has a variety of cuisines, which are cooked to perfection. There are curries, stir fries and stews. This is also surrounded by a warm environment and helpful staff! A must!

Always a worthwhile visit to this hotel on a Sunday. Excellent choices from the extensive buffet. Very good service and at a reasonable price. The hotel has a genuine “family run” feel about it. It has good facilities and is set in a beautiful location...More

This was an excellent surprise on the way to Mbabane. We have stopped over for lunch and it was definitely the best food we had in Swaziland.
