This is a 3 stars hotel so expectations weren't as high. It just about ticks all the right boxes, with clean decent rooms, friendly staff and large and well maintained compound.
Unfortunately, some complaints include spotty wifi service (but it was free!), hot water that is either too hot or too cold, occasional power trips (to be expected in this country?) but the worse of it all was the air-con! It dripped so much water it puts the Victoria falls to shame! Not to mention it was as loud as having a truck parked in the room all night!
Other than the few complaints, the hotel was near enough for us to walk to town, the breakfast service was decent though not exactly extravagant.
