Checkin was swift. When we got to our room situated at the entrance of the hotel, there was no water to shower. This took sometime to address with many explanations given - no water in the town, previous guests used up the water in the room tank and so on. It was great that our morning departure was later so that we were able to insist on receiving water for a shower. We were advised that a large tank is to be installed hopefully as this account is being reported. A box of wine was given as a good will gesture - much better to have water in place. The room was very spacious, four poster beds with mosquito nets, slippers locally made, dressings gowns, tv, a mini bar but no fridge, well supplied with towels and toiletries. The restaurant staff were excellent and are worthy of mention, had we brought their names away. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner. Porridge was readily available. We particularly loved the choice of juices. The grounds are not necessarily easy to negotiate at night but we very much enjoyed the pleasant morning stroll. We did notice young people being given a guided tour of the hotel - a venue the proprietors must be proud of. The view from the patio with the swimming pool looking in any direction is very pleasing. We enjoyed the spa treatment very much and thank the manageress and her staff for the excellent service they provided us with. The duty manager is to be acknowledged here. Many thanks to the bell boy - Mesganew Atloge who brought our cases out. Nothing was too much for him to do. We hope that he is recognised for this by his employers and also for his talents which could no doubt be used more appropriately. We could have happily rated this property five stars had we not had difficulty with the water.
