My husband and I stayed here during March 2014, one night at the beginning and one day room at the end of our Kuoni Leopard Safari.
We stayed here in 2005, 2007 & 2009 too, again around safaris. In the five years since our last visit the hotel is starting to look its age and I'm sure isn't too far away from needing a good face lift.
Its still an OK hotel, with the on-site Spur Steakhouse always a must visit. A nice improvement since our last visit is the in-room free WiFi service. The strength of signal depends on exactly where your room is located, strangely the day room we had near to the reception had problems connecting but the room half way across the complex had excellent service!
Both rooms had hairdryers. There were 2 power points 1 x UK and 1 x South Africa.
