I stayed in a double room with my father on a business trip. The room was excellent and there was plenty of room for both of us.
My experience in the hotel was great, from stepping out of the taxi and being greeted by one of the friendliest concierge staff I have ever met, his name was Evans and made our stay very memorable. There was also another lady, Maggie who represented the African Heritage store and she was also very nice and made our stay even more excellent. The staff in this hotel were some of the best I have met on my travels through out the world and deserve pay rises for their exceptional people skills.
The restaurants were very good especially Sikia whose continental food was great, I recommend the duck. The food in all restaurants was always fresh and of the highest quality with great presentation. A little pricey but still great. A cheaper alternative for food is the Gazebo restaurant over the road from the hotel, which is also very good.
The business centre was open until 11pm and met my needs, printing is very expensive so I recommend you come prepared if you are on business.
If you travel in cabs make sure your doors are always locked and try not have your valuables on display.
Overall great hotel with exceptional staff.
