Hotel was safe, comfortable, no frills, but excellent staff and breakfast. Shower was highlight of the room. Bed could use an upgrade... furniture overall wasn't luxurious, but gets the job done (would be considered 2-3* outside of Africa most likely).

WAS A LITTLE ABOVE AVERAGE BASE ON MY RECENT EXPERIENCE. CHECKING AND Review Of Rooms Was A Problem Because We Were Informed Its Against Your Policy To Check Room In The Night And I Wonder What’s The Difference Between Day And Night Checking Of Your Rooms Before Your Customers Can Make A Choice Of Stay.

The first room had a bad odor to where I started getting a headache, this was like a strong mildew scent. I was quickly changed to another room, without any issues.
