Location will be ideal for a night stay to visit safari and elephant orphanage. Room is large and spacious. However, to take note that there is no wifi and mineral water in hotel room. Room appears to be a bit stuffy.

We spent a night at the Hotel and the first Impression was pretty good - nice and spacious room with A/C, big bathroom and view on the pool. The location, just opposite the Elephant Transit Home, was also perfect for our purposes. We had most of our food there, as in fact there is nothing else withing walking distance, and this is where the problem started: the food was OK, not very tasty and I fear not very fresh, and we had massive problems trying to the get the young waiter understand our order - he kept on going up and down and eventually even sent us a colleague, who could speak English only a little better than him - so it wasn't easy with him either. We also got sick the same day we left the hotel, but I really don't want to pin that on them, as it may well have been the heat or the general exhaustion of the trip. All in all, a good place to spend one night, I would not have stayed longer though.

This hotel does not have a view, but has superb food and awesome hospitality. They arranged a safari for us which was also worth the money. Clean rooms & friendly staff. It is also very cost effective and food is awesome.

We loved this hotel, its location is perfect for the elephant sanctuary (100 metres away) and Safari. The staff were fantastic and even arranged a driver to pick us up from our current hotel (4 hours drive away) and drop us at their hotel at a very cheap rate. Arranged our safari driver and any questions and queries sorted ASAP.

Super value and its seems crazy some people pay their hotel excursion fees which entail a 8 hour round trip before driving around for a Safari when you can book a cheap hotel in the reserve 5 minutes drive away for good value hotels.
