Stayed here on business. Sprawling complex but average service. Staff were friendly, although the service was ordinary. Food at the restaurant was unremarkable. All in all, the facilities were okay but not quite what one would expect, given the sprawling complex that is discernible on arrival. However, the price was very good, overall, was good value for money, in the... More

Everything about the Golden Peacock is substandard. Everything in the room is Chinese made, marked in Chinese and of poor quality. The TV doesn't show any satellite channels other than those from Star Times (a Chinese TV channel provider). Annoying because I couldn't watch Euro 2016 football, a favourite past time. I just switched off the TV as the other... More

Rooms are clean and perfectly equiped. Excellent free internet. Spa, fitness... tenis and swimmingpool but... the worse (and expensivest) food I ever eat in all Africa (both restaurant Chinese and Occidental) They also have a shopping mall (Chinese store) inside the compound together with a conference center. Big hotel.

The problem with this hotel is that it is dirty and the food hygiene standards are questionable. It is fine to stay for a night or two but if you are staying for longer, I've had to bring my own food in because the restaurant is making me ill. Though now, I risk the problem of cockroaches in my room... More

This hotel in general was a pleasant surprise. The rooms are spacious, quiet and clean. The chinese food is very good (better than the other food on offer), with great variety of choices, and can be ordered via room service, but you have call and ask for the Chinese menu. The grounds are nice as well, with a big swimming... More

I stayed here for two weeks. The rooms were very spacious. The swimming pool is well maintained. I, however, had a tough time with the meals. They serve almost similar options in breakfast every day. So if you are planning to stay for a long time, that may be an issue. The hotel has amazing wi-fi using which I could... More

Stayed for 5 days with two of us plus a 16 month old baby. Staff were super nice to the baby always. Room had a few not unexpected flaws (safe locked open, one window can't close...). Shower is good with loads of hot hot water. Chinese restaurant is not bad. Western one is a bit rougher (don't expect to love... More

Out of other hotels nearby, this is probably the most affordable for what you get. I didn't have any trouble with Wifi, in fact it was pretty good. My room was clean, however the towels are a bit worn. The local staff were very friendly and were always keen to go out of their way to make my stay more... More

Stayed at the Peacock for 2 weeks in Nov/Dec 2015, I was positively surprised about the warm welcome and the friendliness of the local staff, who made my stay there worthwhile, having experienced much worse places around Africa.....this was a personal highlight. Then the downsides, after almost one week all the little hick-ups came to light, which you do not... More

Though over-priced, it offers a very quite undistracted and comfotable stay. Room wifi signal is too weak and you have to go to the lobby to send messages. Have a designated block for smoking which makes it comfortable for non-smokers. The menu for room service is rather limited. Has a gym and a massage room which is ideal for people... More
