“Perhaps pretty decent by African standards?”
Reviewed 8 September 2011

Since it is my first hotel stay here in Africa, I do not have anything to compare it to. Instead, I compared it to the hotels I've seen in other countries.

If you are concerned about safety, the entrance to the gated hotel grounds is guarded.

The first room I checked into did not have functioning AC. I had to ask to switch rooms, and the receptionist at the desk seemed slightly reluctant to do so. (there was no way I'd be able to sleep in the room without AC, it was quite stuffy and warm!)

The rooms aren't anything fancy for sure, but you get TV (I was only able to get a few channels- CNN in black and white, National Geographic, BET and some food channel), free wifi (bonus!!!), and nice, good pressured, consistently warm water. You also get a free bottle of water, and coffee. Toiletries include bar soap, and a bottle of shampoo. The bottle in my room looked used, and the soaps in the showers must've been sitting there for a while, as there were water stains on the wrappers.

There are 2 double beds in my room, however, only 1 has a mosquito net. The beds are pretty comfy.

The good: Most of the staff were very friendly, especially the cook, the room cleaners/laundry boys, the servers, the lady at the reception and especially the driver (Dennis) who picked me up at the airport and took me to the zoo/wildlife center and botanical gardens. Wireless internet is free and the breakfast (baked beans, eggs, fruit, yogurt, ginger tea etc.) is free as well as a daily bottle of water.

The not so good: wireless internet and electricity are not always reliable with frequent disruptions. The airconditioner is a strange contraption that looks like is supposed to be portable but can't be moved as it will leak and is not very strong.

Room Tip: Two rooms are really tiny. Try to get the normal large room with a table.

Coming from DR Congo, my expectations were pretty low. Any place in this part of Africa with clean rooms, consistent electricity, and warm water is pretty nice. Breakfast is a nice treat, and lunch/dinner is also reasonable. A/C in rooms is nice, but doesn't work the greatest. Overall a nice place to stay if you're in transit; close to the airport, free shuttle, and friendly staff.

The service was just okay, not so great. The rooms are more than I expected. All rooms are self contained with TV and air-conditioning. Something you would find in a 4-5 star Hotel. The location is excellent near the airport, quiet with adequate amenities. (No pool no gym.) I really liked the environment, quiet and relaxing. I did not like the fact that I had to go else where to swim. However, there is a fresh water lake nearby and several swimming pools in other big and expensive hotels. If you need 5 star luxury at affordable rates. This is the place to go.

I stayed at this hotel for one night on business, whilst passing through. My company use it frequently and I must say I was very impressed by how clean it was (and others have said the same). The rooms were nice and large with AC (which didn't always work but was better than nothing) and with en suite bathrooms, fans, shower and tall cupboards.

The price was very reasonable - $60 for the night and its only 10 mins away from the airport so thats very handy. The staff, what can I say, were so so lovely and friendly. The service was very efficient and always with a smile. There were a few hiccups with the room and my transfer to the hotel but the way the staff dealt with it and their manner was so professional that for me its not an issue (and not worth mentioning in a review). I would definately come back here again and recommend it to others. The price does include breakfast and airport transfers. Other meals are very reasonably priced and for a small fee they will deliver it to your room. I was also impressed by the steady internet access as I managed to put in a whole day's work without any disruption.
