We spent a night on our way to Serengeti and this turned out to be exactly what all the reviews say. Great bird life set in a working coffee plantation with well appointed rooms , all having quaint Swahili names. A very pro active chef who obviously knows his onions adds charm to this place.
The laundry service is super efficient-- took in the laundry at 6 pm and had them back in the rooms by midnight.
Internet is dear -$5 for 30 mts but worth it for those who cannot do without it.
The curio shop has some good stuff but the manual swiping of the card can lead to problems
