Spent 1 night here on way to safari. Nice clean hotel, but a little dark for my liking. The colonial look and feel of the hotel was quite nice but the frogs in ponds were a little noisy at night. The rooms were clean and the bed was really comfortable. However, our room was on the ground floor and was quite cold and dark inside. The pool area where you eat was really nice with good choice of breakfast in a buffet style. Ate at the steakhouse in the evening which was only average. Did not get a chance to use any of the facilities so cannot comment on them.
