“Good setup marred by an unfortunate incident”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

This hotel is well set-up for visitors coming through. It is appropriately designed in that the pool is the focus with a bar and also a separate restaurant on two sides of it. The rooms themselves are spacious and clean, and have relatively new fittings. The floors are tiled but everything else is of decent quality. The room was clean and there was a good range of cable channels. It seems many NGOs use this for conferences and the like.

Unfortunately I had a laptop case with a hard drive inside stolen from my room, and subsequent events led me to believe that it was housekeeping (why else would someone try and open the door at 8am the next morning without knocking, supposedly to check on housekeeping matters). Given I did not fully recognise this at the time there was not much that management could do but they were quite sympathetic and it is by no means their fault. It reinforces the fact it always pays to be cautious in Africa - lock your valuables in your bags if you are going out.
