4/5 Good

Traveled with family and small children, Business traveler
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Beautiful views and attentive staff. The rooms were clean and hot water reasonably available. Although this wasn't a huge surprise, we did all get gastroenteritis from eating at the restaurant at different times during the week. They were often out of food options as well, though there was a big conference going on, so this may have been the reason. This resort is also somewhat overpriced for the amenities and area.

5/5 Excellent

Traveled with group, Business traveler
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Beautiful grounds with many lovely flowers and right on the beautiful Lake Tana. Food is very good, including the breakfast buffet. Some of the rooms have older plumbing, but overall great hotel for the location. Hot water and semi-reliable Wifi.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with group
Disliked: Staff & service
Did not get a room with lake view though I made the most expensive booking. Staff handling it was a bit impatient and rude. After some argument/persuasion was changed to new room with l/view.
