Had to switch to this hotel last minute, we were booking into one of their "Best Rooms", but the rooms were rather dated and needed some proper maintenance.
Room looks nice in photos, but is rather dated. Shower heads seem to spray water everywhere and some power points (wall sockets) loose of seem to be partially falling out of wall.
One morning after returning from Game drive at 10am room still had not been cleaned, so we asked if they could do so ASAP so we could have a brief nap. After multiple calls, someone eventually turned up at 12:30.
One evening there were a few bugs/beetles in the room and I ended up getting bitten on corner of the eye. The next evening on coming back from afternoon boat trip, there were 1000s of beetles outside the room and they were getting into the room around the edge of the door, screens. We rang housekeeping before going to dinner as we say them spraying outside some other rooms. On returning to the room over an hour later, the room was infested with bugs over the walls, bed - it was appalling. While my partner was using towel to try to remove some bugs, eventually housekeeping turned up with a broom and swept some of them out of the room - but did not have any spray. Needless to say we were thankful that was our last night.
Food is reasonable for a big establishment, but make sure you are not back late from your morning game drive otherwise you will miss out on any breakfast.
