After days of being shaken around safari parks it was great to get to this hotel with its pool, air con and wifi. Nice big room with balcony, good hot shower and really helpful manager. Walk up to the New Cabana cafe for a fresh cooked, authentic rice and curry.

Very good refurbished hotel. Clean pool and good rooms, provided you book the NEW rooms. Older chalet rooms are OK, No wifi or internet. they are in the process of renovating so this maybe available soon.

We saw lots of mid range rooms and the Kent had a big room with breakfast inc and a pool. It is a wacky hotel, but the rice and curry was excellent. Give Tissa a miss unless you are desperate to go on safari. This hotel was pretty good value for money. Double $25
