There is a cook there called Benson, that for sure is employee of the year. Always does everything according instructions and keeps time as well.

We had money stolen not once but twice from safe. Safe had key not code and spare stays with owner. They didn’t have a spare key for our room supposedly so we had to leave the key if going out during day so the cleaner could come in. Both times money went missing when we were out and had the room key so receptionist said couldn’t happen there and must be “internal” which is impossible and I didn’t like his attitude. Either the owner or a staff member is taking money. Until this happened we thought it was a unique excellent small hotel which is spotlessly clean the breakfast excellent and the waiter Nzai works really hard.

Incredible place - a kind of camp casbah full of African antiques and canopied pavilions. The antidote to minimalism. Perfectly quiet - you just hear the birds - and thoughtful details like flowers on the sheets. Vast closet areas, bathroom bigger than my apartment. Recommend!
