  • 8.0.Very good

    The children’s pool kept our grandkids and their friends of various ages happily playing all day with a wall dividing two depth levels, they could choose which side to play in while the 2 and 3 year olds were kept safe. The Olympic size pool gave so much space for swimming and games with older kids. The pool service was excellent and I enjoyed a massage inside the massage tent.

    Great place

    Great place, very recomended. The only remark and offer to other travelers is to ask for a room with good wifi connection since there are areas where the wifi is not so good. Except of this. The place is clean, the food is good and service is fantastic

    The rooms are nice. I would not recommend staying here. When it rain the rooms are so far away from the main reception and breakfast area its a mess trying to get there. Reception is not terribly efficient and the breakfast buffet was quite odd.

    I have to admit that I was a little disappointed with our accommodation when we first arrived but by the end of our stay I had warmed up to it. We stayed in one of Speke's suites which overall was clean and comfortable but there were areas that would definitely benefit with being updated. For example, the kitchenette could do with an upgrade. The fridge in our suite didn't have handles which made it difficult to open and the facia on the top of the fridge was missing which made it look unclean. The floor cupboards didn't have backs to them which could provide an entry point for insects. I know we are in Africa and you have to expect the odd insect every now and again but reducing their entry points helps to avoid the situation in the first place. The bathroom seemed to have been partially upgraded but the shower pressure was poor and the floor tiles within the shower were very slippery when wet. Textured tiles in this area would reduce the possibility of guests slipping in the shower. On a positive note, the outside spaces of this property are amazing. It is situated next to Lake Victoria and has beautiful lush green gardens and views. However at night the outdoor dining areas are a little on the dark side which made it difficult to read menus. This could be a deliberate ploy to avoid insects being attracted to lights and causing a nuisance to guests whilst dining. Overall this is a nice hotel in fantastic location. I would stay here again but maybe in a different room.
