Stayed here overnight on a safari trip. The hotel is a beautiful colonial structure with a peaceful garden. We arrived in the middle of night after a long flight. The staff were welcoming and available for help. The rooms are well-appointed and the bathrooms were luxurious. Most important the place was quiet and peaceful and allowed us to get some sleep. Breakfast allowed a number of options and the service was excellent.
One inconvenience was the stairs to our room and the lack of an elevator that did not allow easy movement of luggage, although staff were quick to offer help.
