I stayed here with my girlfriend in Febuary 2011 for one night. Nice lakeside plot. There was free wifi however it didnt reach our room and when taking a shower gets wet in the room but only slightly. Apart from those 2 very minor issues the hotel was great. It was well presented and close to everything you'd need. The room had an african feel to it which is what the hotel strives to achieve. I did find the menu was a little pricey so we opted for pizza hut. The pool looked nice however it was raining when we stayed so using it was a bit of a no no. It was nice in the morning to make use of the gym before departing which is pretty basic but does the job. The hotel feels really clean and it was a good base for us. I would certainly return if I was back in NZ. Keep up the good work :)
