We stayed as a couple for 2 days and we loved everything about the hotel. Our room overlooked beautiful hotel grounds and green coffee farms in the distance. They served an excellent choice of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes buffet dinner, breakfast and lunchboxes. It always felt good when Omar the manager stopped at our table for a quick chat or to confirm that we were happy with the food, room...... Thank you so much to all your personnel for a great stay. We hope to come calling again very soon.

This hotel has just been renovated, the rooms are simply great, elegantly furnished and everything works well. Took a long hot shower and the comfortable bed with clean snow white linen felt heavenly after a long day of safari drives. Dinner was served down at the main restaurant where we mingled with other guests and they seemed happy going about their business. Entertainment by local dancers was quite captivating and we found ourselves trying the jumps albeit no so well. Our schedule was very tight and it is a pity that we did not get to swim in that beautiful pool. This place is worth visiting.

Zara owned and run so you know exactly what you're going to get. Good accommodation, excellent staff and good food. If anything, my expectations were exceeded which is always a good thing. Bedrooms first. They'd just had a makeover. A safe provided, spotlessly clean, shower ok. Only negative was one power socket and dim lights. Fine for me, but ladies doing their make up might struggle with lack of light. Note no AC but as you are at higher altitude was not a problem.  Second night no water....welcome to Africa. Restored but trickle. Outside pool good and pleasant gardens. Entertainment excellent a stand out show of dancing and gymnastics. Food served in buffet style was good, plentiful and sufficiently varied for most dietary requirements. All in all a very good stay and one that we enjoyed.

I enjoyed my stay at the Highview for 1 night either side of a 2 night safari. Nicely greeted on arrival with a hot flannel then easy check in . A porter takes your bag up to your room which after traversing some steps is either on the ground floor or one floor up.My room was comfortable enough as was my bed, I had no problems with the shower. There are areas to sit around namely the terrace and swimming pool areas but everything is dictated to how much time you have at he hotel Dinner was a buffet.The first nights food was nice.the return night the food was delicious although the red meats were a little tough on the teeth both here and on safari. They lay on activities at night,bonfires or karaoke but most people have a drink at dinner and head to bed which is a pity. There are a few things on the breakfast buffet and a chef stands by to cook you eggs or omelettes . All the staff were very helpful and very friendly to me and i enjoyed my short stay
