We stayed here for a couple of nights as the first stop on a 10 day safari with Pollmans/Hayes and Jarvis.
Hotel was ok, but probably the least nice out of the ones we stayed in for the week. It is located around 15 mins from the edge of the Masai Mara national park, and it took us around 45 mins drive each time we went for a game drive before we got far enough into the reserve to see something more interesting than a gazelle. We did see some great stuff on game drives from here though, including a group of young cubs playing not far from the track.
There was only power and hot water at night, but water pressure and temperature were good. Rooms are in pairs and as other reviews said, the walls between the two rooms are paper thin. Bed was okay. There wasn't a hair-drier in the room and every time my wife asked for one at reception there weren't any left.
The buffet always seemed to be broadly the same despite the fact the theme changed each night. Drink prices didn't seem too bad, but I'm used to central London. The buffet meat was generally a bit tough and not that tasty.
If I was in the Mara again I will probably pay the extra and stay somewhere in the middle of the park, not outside or on the edge.
