Overall very good. Opposite a supermarket and ATMs. The security staff was excellent: friendly and able to organise taxis. Sadly can't say the same of the receptionists who were universally rude and disinterested.

Great place to stay! Excellent location with supermarket, ATMs, cafés and restaurant nearby. The staff were really friendly and super helpful and you can book lots of tours with them too (although I wish they didn't advertise for elephant rides and lion encounters). I had a great time staying here and would highly recommend it. I made lots of friends here (being on my own) and would definitely go back if I ever travelled here again :-)

Very warm welcome. Then, walking into the room, I felt I was transported to Europe, because of the cleanliness and facilities available: fridge, drinking water, spotless sheets, bathroom facilities and general cleanliness. Very good traditional food, cooked to order. Various wi-fi packages available. Air conditioning was a welcome relief.

The property is overall attractive and the zebras roaming around add a nice touch. Staff are mostly friendly and try to please. Pictures found on other websites might be a little bit flattering, keep expectations modest.
