I had enjoyed the stay at this excellent facility in the heart of the city. Excellent location. The hotel is so green like you are staying in woods. The rooms are also very well located. The food is great. I can keep on going on the pluses.

We all loved the stay and would definitely like to stay again!

Stayed there on our arrival from London. Had previously stayed there in the 1960s. Much larger but still manages to keep its pleasant charm. Beautiful gardens and nice selection of places to eat with excellent food. Rooms and facilities were first rate. Staff was very helpful and friendly.What a pleasant place

Very good hotel in a charming setting. Pros: very friendly staff; very good location, excellent breakfast; very good infrastructure including a beautiful outdoor swimming pool; a wide variety of restaurants: gourmet, casual, sushi and poolside. Cons: rooms are correct but a bit austere. All in all: an excellent price-quality ratio. I fully recommend it!!

This is a descent hotel.
My dad used to take us there 40 years ago. Even now the place is still a country paradise found in the heart of the city.

The rooms are astounding,
The food awesome,
The staff very friendly, family-inclined, and professionally-trained.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We stayed here twice, one night on each occasion, as we completed various legs of our Safari. The only criticism is that getting here from the main airport during peak traffic is a nightmare. It's quite close to Wilson airport however, the airport used for all the light aircraft.

The hotel has a lot of charm, rather than being ultra modern. There are four different eating areas, and the gardens are wonderful, adding considerably to the ambience. On one night we did try their upmarket restaurant, and while one main was amazing, I thought my seared tuna steak rather plain for the price. Service was impeccable. We also used two other dining areas, and the tapas served in the main dining room were excellent. The lunch we took at the front area was excellent, being a special - burritos.

We used the gym, and it was certainly adequately equipped.

Room Tip: If its a Friday night, a room away from the bar might be better.

I stayed here for 5 days for a business meeting and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. We booked the executive board room and conference facilities were excellent. My room was simple, but clean and housekeeping kept everything nice and tidy. Breakfast and lunch in the dining room was pleasant. Best thing about this hotel are the open spaces, bright bouganvillea and lovely gardens. Highly recommended!
