I have stayed at this lodge on a few occasions and have always felt welcome. The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable with an excellent shower. The chair at the desk is a little uncomfortable and it might be time that they changed these but other than that the rooms feel like home. Dinner & Breakfast are catered for on site. The rate includes breakfast which is good. The dinner is extra but its a reasonable menu and reasonably priced. Service is very good & the staff are friendly and attentive. Only negative is that WiFi is extremely slow.

Accommodation is clean and spacious, very comfortable. The following was available in the room, bar fridge, aircon, coffee and tea with a kettle, DSTV, Wifi. The bathroom is also very spacious with a large shower. Cant complain about anything in terms of the rooms, very good. The restaurant is also excellent as well as the food and I will definitely recommend Shamba Lodge.

There's nothing nothing with this place it'd beautiful but the service is Awful & the lady who runs this place is Rude.They have so many unnecessary rules forgetting that we are adults paying for these rooms... don't even go to the bar it will cost you an arm & 2 legs. you also cant have more than 7 friends at once again you're Adult. if you have a choice don't come here. the internet sucks it's slow. breakfast takes forever you have to be there 30 earlier if you wanna eat.

Dear Mr Mmbi It's very unfortunate that you feel this way a d we sincerely apologise. We have set the rules as we have to ensure that the standards are maintained and kept in control. I am sorry my assertiveness in enforcing our house rules was taken as rude. We have these rules in place so avoid any problems and ensure that the place is kept in order. I think any other place would not allow 7 people in their rooms due to noise control. Am sorry that you were not able to have 7 people in your room but the room capacity is actually small and would not fit 7 people anyway. If you order breakfast when you in hurry it is done at the best speed possible to ensure its cooked properly. But if you had wanted a packed breakfast it should have been ordered in advance to avoid delays as you experienced. The restaurant and bar prices are competitive with other places and according to our standards which are fairly priced. The Internet we do sincerely apologise for but that is our service provider HAI and we are engaging with them to upgrade our current system. Once again we apologise but thank you nevertheless for your criticism. Our rules are in place for all guests who frequent Shamba Lodge and shall remain enforce to ensure we keep our standards up. Regards Management

I stayed in this Lodge once again a couple of weeks ago. As always the staff were welcoming & friendly & the accommodation good. This time I had a Pizza for dinner and an Omelette for breakfast and can recommend both of these meals.
