    They have all the basic us amenities on the menue, from hamburger via milkshake to ice-cream. Security is good. Too much mosqitoes though, and service is extremely slow when managment is not around. All in all a decent place.

    I don't think they have conference room. Also no pool. Is just a very nice small hotel with a good African restaurant. They allow also to camp.
