The staff here try very hard but are a little forgetful at times. The room is very comfortable and I'd advise the new block as rooms are better in that side of the hotel. Take some mozzy spray as we picked up a few bites. The showers are good. Lots of storage space a fridge & a TV. There's a gym but I didn't use it so can't comment. Breakfast is Ethiopian style. If you're ultra fussy take your own cereal. The omlettes were very nice each day.
You can arrange trips out from the hotel very reasonably with a guide. We got a mini bus for 9 of us and had a great time exploring churches with ancient icons. The countryside is beautiful. The restaurant food is OK for a couple of night s and cheap. A pasta dish costs about £2 and a beer is £1. St George beer is like lager or go for an amber! They are fine with you taking in your own ketchup, parmesan or wjhatever...if that's your style. Finally ask for a room at the back as the ones atthe front can be noisy in the early hours when random car alarms go off!
