Stayed here a couple of times in Feb coming in/out of Kenya and was pleasantly suprised at the quality of the rooms and service. Getting to the hotel from the airport was a mission but that was due to heavy traffic, upon arrival your car gets checked for bombs underneath before it's allowed into the hotel, you and your bags then get put through metal detectors before entering the lobby area. So you arrive feeling like these guys are taking care of their clients in terms of providing some security.
Check-in/out was fine, no complaints. Room was great, everything I needed, clean and modern, no complaints, Internet worked fine. Large comfortable bed in a spacious well lit room. Room service menu was varied enough and reasonable quality. Breakfast downstairs was pretty good, huge range of food available to satisfy all tastes.
The gym was amazing, huge and heaps of good quality equipment, a pleasant suprise it wasn't just a couple of tired machines as is often the case on the African continent.
Even squeezed in a pedicure with a very nice lady in the salon, good value, and she did a great job.
Would stay again happily.
