Lugogo Sun Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed overnight very comfortable beds clean room if a bit dated. The restaurant was excellent with a good selection of food and efficient and friendly service. Swimming pool a bit disappointing as looks good in the pictures of the hotel but is really shallow with a very small deep end. Ok for children but not for serious swimmers,

Big hotel with large room’s reminiscent of a travel lodge with the two double beds in. Room was well appointed and clean if a little bit in need of some refurbishment, its old and in need of some TLC, but anent we all. Restaurant is good with the food of a high standard; you’re bound to find something to eat. Pool is huge and with enough sun beds to go round. The porters have a unique uniform, that of a local chief, in national costume.

As a child, my family and I would often visit the Ezulwini valley and stay at either the Lugogo Sun or the Ezulwini Sun. After 25 years I thought it time to take my own family (hubby and 2 boys age 9 and 10) to experience Swaziland together. We spent two nights at the Lugogo Sun and I was amazed at how well looked after the hotel is. It is still almost exactly the same as I remember and despite being an older hotel it is still in great condition and very well looked after. The service we received from all the staff was absolutely exceptional, the waiters at breakfast had the friendliest cheerful natures and made us feel very welcome. We decided to partake in the famous Sunday Buffet lunch which did not disappoint. The food was absolutely delicious, however my one gripe would be that the aircon was broken making it almost unbearably hot in the dining room. If you are looking for a comfortable family gettaway I would highly recommend this hotel, it is great value for money and a very pleasant stay. Thank you Lugogo for maintaining such a high standard over the years.

Decided to stay over at Lugogo Sun in Ezulwini Valley again. Reasonably priced including lavish breakfast, comfortable rooms, covered parking and very friendly and helpful staff. Although this hotel was one of the originals in Ezulwini, it's still a favourite.

The hotel has clean rooms with comfortable beds. The grounds and pool area are well maintained and offer a pleasant respite while enjoying the views. Great selection at the Buffets at both breakfast and dinner.

Rooms with two double beds represents a good affordable option for families. Our children loved the pool and the breakfast buffet. The dinner option is too expensive but there is a mall nearby with many options (Spur etc.). We were happy for a pool view room. The balconies are missing a table and chairs to enjoy the sunset and evenings - hereby a recommendation to management.

The old was built in the 70's and needs a major revamp to modernise it. The rooms are clean and the food is ok but the décor is tired and outdated. The Hotel sits on very beautiful grounds and a great view. The staff are super friendly and always willing to help

Lugogo Sun had clean basic rooms with working air conditioner. Others have mentioned the elevator - it was a little scary. I thought the room was a little overpriced but we paid a "walk in" rate (vs booking in advance on a discounted website). The hotel does not allow you to bring in food from the outside. The dinner buffet was very expensive. When the server asked for our drink order I asked if wine was included (the price would indicate that it was). She said yes so I slurped down 2 glasses. As I was getting up to leave she asked if she could bring the bill for the drinks. When I reminded her that she said that the drinks were included she said drinks were not and they should have told me that when I paid for the buffet. Overall I got a good nights sleep, but the overpriced buffet and confusion on the drinks was disappointing.

Good comfortable place to stay, Really not anything close to this hotel. It does have a nice pool and lovely grounds. WiFi was available in the lobby, but remember you're in Africa. Had a good buffet supper and breakfast at their Dining Room. They has a small bar and gift shop. Room could use an update not not a bad hotel in Swaziland

I went back to Swaziland after 22 years and found things almost exactly the same. The Lugogo Sun hasn’t changed or upgraded at all. Reception and breakfast room could do with sunlight and happy colors. The rickety elevators seem like they will shudder to a stop anytime. Rooms are average size with twin beds, too soft mattress, lumpy duvet and empty pillows are standard. Tiny bathroom with ancient taps and shower curtains really need attention. On the positive side, staff are ultra friendly and helpful. Breakfast was relatively varied and decent. This hotel needs a major makeover, where’s Ramseys Hotel Hell team?
