Although this is part of the holiday inn chain, this hotel offers much more than the standard. Themed rooms and view of the Wanayama reserve make for a brilliant break with the children. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean. On this visit we stayed on the second floor overlooking the reserve and the view was fantastic. The kids jumped out of bed when they realised that the oryx and ostrichs were just being let out and having a great time tearing around the reserve. It made getting the kids to breakfast diffiucult as they wanted to stay and watch! We had room 231 which also meant you could see across to the bird cages and the vultures. The one night package was excellent value with buffet breakfast and entry to the zoo on two days.
Being half term meant the hotel was packed with the only downside being that so was the pool/spa (ran out of towels) and also the Zafiri grill. We only managed to get a late table for dinner and service was extremely slow although this seemed to be down to our waitress as others around us were served quicker by other staff.
Overall would thoroughly recommend this break to others.
