We stayed at this hotel based on my great experience staying here several years earlier. There was over an hour wait for the airport pickup, although the lovely owner offered us a free drink later as compensation, so that was fine!
Our room was noisy and quite smelly, although we had a nice hot shower and comfortable bed. It does seem a bit run-down from how I remember, although I think the room quality must vary as last time I stayed it was great (in a different section of the hotel). The TV was tiny.
The location isnt great as there is not much to do nearby. Apparently they offer a transfer to a shopping centre, although we didn't try this.
The meals and breakfast were good.
This place is saved by the absolutely outstanding barman.. when we arrived and were feeling quite unsure about the place, we sat at the pool and he bounded over to introduce himself, and made us feel right at home. He was so friendly and instantly made us feel comfortable. He was a wealth of information about where to go & what to see in Africa, writing down information for us. On the second day we asked where the nearest shop was and he walked us there and back! Absolutely brilliant guy who is a great asset to this hotel.
It is a pickup point for the Baz Bus so that is convenient if you are using this service.
