this charming place unfortunately was a let down! view is fantastic but everything else was poor. The rooms is a garish pink but the only escape is the occassional view of mt kilimanjaro.
the owner a local, sitting in bar in the evening drinking and watching loud tv!! checking out we understood that we were over charged and the owner shouted loudly at the poor receptionist in front of guests who broke down in tears later. staff tried best but untrained and look tired. not the kind of place would want to return to simply because of the air of sorrow hanging in the location.
