5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Excellent staff (Mirriam, Matthews, Mike, Ernestine, Paulina all very friendly and helpful), good value for money for a private room, well laid out with pool, catering facilities and mix of dorms and private rooms, good location for access to everywhere. I had a wonderful stay especially as I spent more of my time inside the lodge than outdoors.
