We stayed here for one night in late September 2009 and had a day room in early October.
Kuoni and The Travel Collection use this hotel as the start and finish points for their safaris.
The hotel has two restaurants, a bar, a business area and a small shop.
The rooms were clean and a decent size; on our second visit the shower was slightly more powerful, although both bathrooms could to with an upgrade.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
