A client of ours booked us into Shumba for 2 nights. I have stayed there in the past but this is the first trip in recent history. On initial arrival it looks like the place has been given a fresh coat of paint and a bit of a revamp. The reception was luke warm and directions were given to the rooms, no porters or guidance offered. The rooms have also been revamped and are clean and comfortable. There was a wifi available by the rooms but we both had problems connecting, I eventually gave that up and used a 3G connection, also very week!
I thought the dinners were very average, food was nice but certainly not spectacular, breakfasts were sufficient.
The receptionist gave us a hard time because there was some misunderstanding in the reservation. I don't have a problem being queried but she made out it was our problem.
Generally I would stay here again. In the African context this may be 4 Stars but not in an international context.
