We stayed at Sentrim Boulevard on the first and last nights of our Nomad Masaai Mara and Gorilla Tour. On arrival we were greeted with huge smiles, asked where we were from and how our flights were.
We had a twin room on the ground floor with a door leading onto gorgeous gardens that included benches and bird feeders to add to our enjoyment of being outdoors.
We went for a late afternoon swim in the large pool, and within 2 minutes of hitting the water, a lady appeared and moved sun-loungers and towels to where we had put our things.
When we had finished swimming a waiter appeared and brought us coffee.
Supper of steak, chips and veg was served outside, delicious, simple and value for money.
Our room was spotless, comfortable and the overhead fan provided adequate cooling for the room.
The look and feel of the hotel is reminiscent of Cape Town in the 1970's. Utterly charming. The service was good, old fashioned "nothing is too much trouble" and all done with a smile.
We needed assistance with the TV and the ceiling fan and this was provided promptly and efficiently, and included a friendly chat.
The bathroom was large and spotlessly clean, and the shower had the right pressure, and un-interupted hot water to wash of the grime and weariness of long haul air travel.
Breakfast offered a vast array of hot and cold choices, and when we requested scrambled eggs they were brought to our table within a few minutes of ordering.
The reception staff welcomed us back after 14 days on the road, with smiles and hugs! Wow!
They were very helpful in offering advice and assistance regarding walking around in the vicinity, prices we should pay for a taxi and arranging transport to the airport.
I would definitely stay there again. A good experience all round.
