3/5 Okay

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness
Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service
No arrangement for tea/coffee in room. One cannot get morning tea before 7.30am. There should BDS provision for booking activities on request by guest, on prior payment. We could not do bamboo-rafting, since the slots were full during our 2-day stay there.

5/5 Excellent

Superb Rooms, Service, Location and Value
I love this place. The rooms are VERY large, and have an attractive, irregular shape and various appointments that make them very comfortable and just right for a country safari lodge. The bathrooms are very good and also large. The common area/tea room where breakfasts and teas (including their fabulous English plum cake) is small and includes the reception area and adjacent kitchen, but this results in their very fine, attentive and friendly staff being constantly present and eager to help. They arranged for me an otherwise complicated ticket on the first, 7:30 am boat in the park. With a very good location, rooms and service, I would enjoy staying in this place for weeks.
