Stayed here a few times before and after safari trips. Very accommodating staff and lovely grounds. Rooms are very spacious and clean.
You are completely unaware of the hustle and bustle of the busy city when ensconced in the hotel. It is very pleasant. When eating breakfast in the open air dining room you have the opportunity to watch the busy world pass you by as you enjoy a wonderful buffet breakfast. Besides the dining room and front entrance you are truly isolated from the world. The only other opportunity to see the large city is from the wonderful pool area. There you get to enjoy your surroundings but also see some high rises.
Had dinner in the main restaurant and was rather underwhelmed compared to the price. Thought the bar area had a more value added menu.
