We stayed two nights at this boutique hotel after our tiring but enjoyable safari trip. Our first good impression was the manucred garden and the home like layout of the 12 units. The staff were friendly and the food in the bistros is delicious and reasonably priced. The hotel is located at Melrose and about 20 minutes walk away from the upmarket Melrose Arch shopping centre. We took a taxi to the shopping centre as we didn't feel comfortable walking for that distance but I'm sure the local will tell you that it's safe to take a walk. There are plenty of good restaurants and specialist shops in Melrose Arch shopping centre. Prices at most restaurants are very reasonable. We found that this area is patronised by tourists. We feel that there are a couple of small issues that needed attention. First is the WIFI, although its free, we had no connection in our room which was on the first floor. Secondly, some of the staff were not familiar with the hotel facility and also not knowledgable about local tours. Finally, the return airport transfer arranged for us was quite expensive. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at this hotel.
