The Service was friendly - Room was OK and had all that was required. Stayed over as I had a evening function - Food at this function and the service was great. Breakfast was hearty - If I must gripe it would be the following - I found the breakfast hall stuffy and no view to the beautiful outside gardens...

I stayed her for a three-day meeting. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, making you feel very welcome from the time of your arrival to your departure. The extensive grounds are nicely maintained. While my room was a bit far from our meeting room, I preferred to walk rather than wait for the complimentary golf cart shuttle in order...

It was good value for money as it included a spa package and stay over with breakfast but facilities are average and the different massage options were too short. having said that though, we will consider this again for a spa getaway in the city.

Stayed here for a weekend. Cons: 1. The courtyard area served us two meals. The service was poor. The waitress kept disappearing. We had to ask other staff for your drinks and food. I saw my food sitting by the kitchen and actually asked someone to bring it to me! The prices were good but the food not so good....

We visited here as a family for my husbands birthday. Spa stay and pamper package was amazing. Sunday lunch at Chiefs Boma was also very good. Rooms a little tired but fit in with African decor theme everywhere. Overall a really lovely weekend away in a hotel which is very good value for money
