Excellent service and provisions, and they were always "right there," and frequently anticipating needs. They also understood Western expectations and approaches to travel and hospitality (not a given when dealing cross culturally as here). Well done - very well done!

The hospitality at this guest house was phenomenal! The guesthouse has a keen understanding of western expectations, and provided the most spacious and well functioning accommodations we had in Ethiopia.
