The beds and rooms were good. The front desk staff was helpful

The food was very good and inexpensive. Most evenings the bar was empty but it was nice to sit outside in the gardens. Breakfast buffet was average but also had cooked to order eggs

Date of stay: June 2018

Its very accessible hotel,so near the main road to and from the airport. They have a spacious, beautiful long clean swimming pool. The showers have warm waters and their customer service is warm and friendly. They have restaurants and good touch of African culture in the hallways. Beautiful place to spend a weekend.

Room tip: the rooms on the higher floors have a beautiful lake veiw

This was once a beautiful hotel with extraordinary facilities. When we stayed there it had about 200 empty rooms. It felt very empty and I wouldn’t have been surprised to see Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall. The food was poor and we only ate once in the restaurant and regretted it. Breakfast was a handwritten list of random items which appeared in no particular order, usually different ones to those we ordered.

The staff were universally polite and tried hard to make our stay better. They agreed to discount the charge for the airport shuttle which is reasonable considering it was supposed to be an eye watering $30 per person.

The rooms overlook the Botanical Gardens, which is beautiful. Other than that I can find nothing to recommend it.
