A fair bit away from the city centre. Basic hotel - the rooms are decent sized but the infrastructure is pretty old - doors don't close properly or the locks don't work. The saving factor is the pool which is pretty decent and there is a nice area around the pool (shaded trees etc.) for a beer. WiFi is free... More

We stayed here on three separate nights as part of an Intrepid tour. Having read the reviews of the place beforehand, I was understandably nervous. My initial impression was whilst it was by no means a good hotel, it wasn't quite as terrible as I was expecting! There seems to be a lot of inconsistency in the hotel, and it... More

Part of an Intrepid tour, so we couldn't avoid it (we prefer to stay at the much nicer and cheaper Sentrim Boulevard) but it was worse than the reviews indicated. No towels, no hot water, dirty rooms, insecure locks on the door, very, very noisy lift. Staff not unfriendly but no-one seemed to care. Why does Intrepid stay here? The... More

I stayed here twice, before a tour and half way through a tour, the second stay was much better because I knew what to expect. The hotel is basic, the staff are friendly and the wifi is temperamental but enough to let home know I was having fun and safe. Take the stairs, it will be quicker than waiting for... More

I only stayed here because it was the starting point for an Intrepid tour, and it would have been okay (basic, but that's fine, I wasn't expecting anything fancy), however, I made the mistake of keeping my money belt in my locked hotel room, inside of my backpack, and someone (very likely a staff member as no sign of break-in)...

I had my bag snatched in this hotel and it very much felt to the police and myself that it was an inside job. There are NO working CTV camera's in this hotel (CTV camera's are a norm) There are NO safes in rooms; and room door locks are from the 1960s .. easy to break into When I went... More

I stayed here as part of a group tour with Imaginative Traveller. So the hotel was not my choice. BUt Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly Staff. They were helpful and welcoming. They arranged a trip out for us to visit the Karen Blixen house and museum. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. I had no problems getting to... More

We stayed at this hotel as the meeting point of an Intrepid tour. The rooms were average, the service and food slow. Our backpack which included our passports, camera, etc was stolen from the hotel restaurant. The Manager (if that is what you want to call him) didn't seem very concerned about this. He advised that they had a camera... More

I only stayed at this hotel due to it being the meeting point of an Intrepid trip. Whilst it was not as bad as other reviews have suggested it was not great. I chose not to stay the days before the tour rather stayed at the hotel next door. The main reason for this was the price (next door was... More

We stayed here a couple of nights as this was the location from which our Intrepid tour would depart - the second night was included as part of the tour so didn't seem worthwhile looking for another hotel as we arrived a day early. In hindsight, we would probably have liked to have stayed at another place that first night... More
