I've stayed here 40+ nights over four trips. The hotel is very pretty - looks like an old English hotel (Tudor) even though it was built not very long ago. It has hardwood floors throughout (a little creaky but that's part of the charm). The restaurants are good, with some very good dishes, and there are lots of places to sit and enjoy a drink or dinner and a good book. I'm partial to the "Library" but service can be slow as one waiter may have to cover four locations. Food is reasonably priced, as is most beverages (alcoholic and nonalcoholic). Breakfasts are full and generous.
The gym is dated but not bad. There's a great set of walking paths through the golf course, ranging from 3k to 7k. I'm a big fan.
The rooms are not airconditioned, but they do have fans. Although it can get a bit humid, the nights are generally cool enough that you won't miss the ac with the fan turned up.
Don't expect an active night life. Dead might describe a weekend night. That's not bad if you want to read a book.
You are out a ways from town. From the hotel to the center of town during traffic can be an hour. In non-peak traffic, it's about twenty minutes. To the US Embassy or the UN Compound is about ten minutes, or fifteen minutes in traffic.
I like this place. It's a bit remote, a bit quiet. The service is generally good albeit spotty, and senior staff is very friendly and nice.
