This was the first leg of our three day safari with Pollmans - I knew we would have to rough it but there is roughing it and roughing it - this was a step too far !
Rock hard beds , a mozzie net that had seen better days, a fan that was plugged into the wall on two pins with a nail stuck into the third pin to make it work - a fire waiting to happen (Room 17)
I read that it had been re-furbed by the last reviewer - where ??? Please tell me where ??
The linens were old, beds hard , one pillow per person that was also dilapidated and old and smelly - just the worst place I have stayed on my many travels , really, the very worst !
The food was inedible and you couldn't actually identify what it was on the plate . The restaurant was so dark (maybe it was a blessing) it was hard to see what you were eating. Drinks were also very overpriced - £8 for two waters and two Cokes was daylight robbery .
The views may have been magnificent but there was no wildlife there in the rainy season (April) to view apart from the delightfully coloured lizards and a few baboons around the watering hole .
The floors in reception which were highly polished rock were downright dangerous they were so slippery and you had to walk very carefully across them .
The pool was a welcome addition as it had been a long drive to the Voi but it needs a good clean and new sunbeds as they were very old and tatty and some had no padded mattresses on them .
Not a very nice experience overall - I would try and avoid at all costs .
