Stayed here 5 nights. The rooms are decent and so is the service. However, the fittings in the bathroom seem quite old. Had to let the water run for about 10 minutes until there was hot water. At times hot water wasn't even available. Water from the AC would drip every morning. The restaurant and breakfast buffet are quite good....

I really liked this hotel. The 1970s design is a really attractive features. However, I would say that there were some things I did not like. I did not feel welcome. Overall I think it was overpriced: $165 for one night. 1. It had a very post-colonial feel to it. 2. Upon arrival they wanted me to pay up front....

We stayed here for one night on our way from the Masai Mara to Amboseli. It was a Saturday night and there was loud music coming from the hotel bar/disco all night until way past 4 a.m. making it unable to get any sleep or rest. This must have affected all the rooms from the way the setup is. Breakfast...

We stayed two nights at the Jacaranda bookending our visit to the Mara. The first night the room was small, dingy carpet. A little humid. Worst of all my friend found a long hair (not ours) in her bed. We were not pleased. The sink drained really, really, slowly. Then to make the toilet flush, we had to figure out...

Decent mid range hotel. Rooms are large, airy and well kept - as is the entire hotel. Very pleasant pool area and adequate restaurant. Room service & house keeping were a little erratic but everyone was very helpful. A really good alternative to the tedium of the branded chains and great value for money.
