With the good... It's reasonably clean, staff are pleasant and has quite nice views, sorry that's as good as I can do. The food was mainly overcooked we nicknamed the chicken "silent witness" chicken ( a UK pathology/crime tv program) and the packed lunch was a joke. Rooms are small with no cupboards as others have said and the shower...

Amazing view. Lovely services. I arrived late at night and the staff had prepared a nice meal, the rooms are nice. The weather was cool when I visited. Ensure you call ahead as the online booking platform isn't the best for making reservations

Visited it as a party of a safari tour. The hotel was as expected, nothing more or less. The food was a little boring but decent, except for the lunch box you could prepare for the next days, which were just horrible. All the staff were absolutely fantastic, we felt very welcome.

This was a brilliant place to stay at the start of our African Safari. It is simple accommodation, what you would expect in this area. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms acceptable, the food outstanding. We enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the place, and the lovely swimming pool. Electricity is provided by a generator, so occasionally might go off....

Rooms are very simple, 2 beds and a bathroom. Outside you have 2 chairs and a table for each room where you can sit and admire the scenery. The restaurant is in another building and there is also a bar. Food is good and the staff is helpful and friendly.
