We stayed here for a night in December 2013. Since Amboseli National Park is a must-see and it's a bit off, you need a place to stay and this one's a good choice.
Prices are not higher than in any other hotel, and we booked early and got a (large!, clean!, comfortable!) tent with a morning view on Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Downsides: We felt much less welcome than closer to the coast (the welcome and much of the service was a bit cold, with the explicit exception of the bartender, he was just great). Also, they have this odd policy of turning off all the power about half the day, which is certainly okay during safari times but you need to keep that in mind when recharging your camera's batteries. Also, you will need the bottle of Doom provided, since the best way of getting rid of the mosquitoes, the fan, cannot be used all night.
Oh, and bring a flashlight if you frequently need to go to the washrooms at night!
Apart from that, expect a clean and cozy stay in the middle of the wilderness of one of the world's most beautiful places. We even heard elephants mating at night.
