me and my sister stayed there October 2011.
As we arrived a baboon walked across the entrance to the hotel....what a welcome!!
Lovely helpfull and friendly staff, who welcomed us with a drink and a view of around 50 hippos having a rest in the amazing mara river.
The place was quiet and calm, there was the odd noise out of the hippos but that was part of the magic there.
The food was nice, we had a bush baby join us in the resturant one night. Lovely to get up close to this creature, he didnt bother any one at all.
At night they light a log fire, in an open wooden building. we sat there on the cosy sofas drinking tea and reading our books. was really special.
Rooms are really clean, with nice basic bathrooms, with towls, flannels, shampoo and body wash. Wasnt expected but nice to have.
Perfect place to stay if you want to be right in the middle of it, i would stay there again, and hope to one day. Perfect safari location!!
