we spent one night in that place , luckily it was only one.
as from arrival porters were talking to us as if we were friends since years, to a certain limits that is a good thing but they were behind the limit , it was the first place where i checked hands with the hotel porter, we went directly for lunch, its a buffet lunch, the whole restaurant smelled bad, absolutely nothing to eat , everything had a very bad smell , thing i understood after going to the buffet, by the very hot weather, all legumes ," cold meat " and cheese were not refrigerated , same for sweets," cheese cake " well you can still eat bread.
rooms are very old and dirty, the house keeping team are spending not more than 1 minute per room, WC dirty, no change for towels , shower gel and shampoo in small quantities and of very bad quality. no electricity between 1 and 5 AM , meaning no ventilator , with the high temperature if you are thinking about sleeping, GOOD LUCK.
for diner we got same buffet then lunch, same means same tomato, same cold meat same desserts, and i can not certify but i am almost sure that it was not into a refrigerator in the after noon because it was really not appealing and in a very bad shape.
we thought that it is the standard we must expect in the lodges and camps during our safari, but we were much more lucky in sarova lodges - lake nakuru and in olare kempinski - masai mara. i do not know how much Kenya expresso tour paid for our night, but i hope they did not pay much...
