I don't normally write reviews, but here goes!
We stayed here for a wedding (didn't go to the zoo). The hotel room was fully prepared for us and our 1 year old. There was a great cot set up (which we didn't use in the end as we did take our own just in case), activity set and a little bathroom set for him (bath, body, hair stuff and even a rubber duck!) which was great. wish we would've known as we wouldn't have packed it all! the children's menu was very tasty, but quite large for a 1 year old. They do do half portions but i was told it still cost the same. There also have Ella's kitchen food available, but my little one doesn't like packet/mushed up food, but i did think it was an excellent idea, especially for the littler ones.
It was very hot in our room (seemed to be hotter inside rather than outside). No aircon, but did have a fan. Expect air-con really.
Beds nice and comfy.
Breakfast nice (had to ask for fried eggs and porridge), but no full fat milk for the kids.
Hotel set up lovely- like being on a safari.
Hotel bar - really expensive for drinks. But i guess you find that with hotels that do weddings. The bar can get really full as its used by hotel guests and wedding guests.
All in all, i'd go back. The food was tasty, the kids facilities were really good and the room was a decent size. Just wish the food/drinks weren't so expensive and that there was air-con in the bedroom, and perhaps the bathroom was a bit more modern.
