          The hotel is very old style and you feel you are in an old place. It has a nice garden and swimming Pool on the back of the hotel. The gym is poor to this hotel range. Breakfast is good and very diverse.

          Stayed 1 night after a safari. Rooms are very clean but the bathroom required a make over. Good staff, but everything runs on "now" time, the staff need to understand "now,now". Fantastic pool area and great sports bar.
