The rooms were renovated in March, 2011 and were some of the nicest we found in all of our 6 week trip throughout Africa. They are modern, very clean, have a deep lounging-type bathtub (with a head rest) and shower, lots of amenities, very effective air conditioning that's not too loud, and a nice heavy front foor. The bed has an easy to wrap around mosquito net as well. Our room had a plasma t.v.with lots of international channels, and an easy to use safe.
The meals are served in a large buffet and there is lots of very tasty things to choose from (including exotic animal meat). Beer is only $3 U.S. but water is a high $2 a bottle. There is free wifi but only one free computer for guests. Because the hotel is beside the river I would recommend wearing mosquito repellant since this is a malaria zone. We were buzzed only by the free computer. There are monkeys and warthogs on the grounds which are fun to watch. There is a free shuttle to the Waterfalls and back.
What really put this hotel over the top for us were the great rooms, and, the very friendly and helpful staff. Always a smile on their faces and wanting to help. We highly recommend this hotel.
