My family of five stayed in two rooms in the guest house. Rooms- very clean and well decorated. Plenty of hot water and towels. In this mountainside resort, the temperature was cool, but we could have used some small fans to circulate air and provide a little noise cover at night in the rooms. This lodge was a great relaxing environment after several days of safari. The food and food service was EXCELLENT! The staff were very helpful when we requested a need, but stayed in the background, not constantly asking you if you needed things. My family enjoyed the pool, but it was cold in the early part of June. The surrounding property was a delight. It was a great place to get some great family pictures before our departure and sit in the shade and relax. A point to bring out-- for those who may not be comfortable with dogs, they have a Doberman and Weimaraner pair that followed us everywhere. My kids enjoyed them, and my wife appreciated that they sat outside or rooms all night and barked if anyone walked up, but they were quite annoying to me with one of them constantly whining for attention. Overall it was a great lodge and I would recommend it as a family retreat, if you don't mind dogs.
