What You Can Expect

The hotel’s guest rooms are among Africa’s finest. Even the standard Deluxe rooms come with a sitting area and most have balconies. Suites range from Junior to Presidential, the latter featuring 1930s Baccarat crystal light fittings and a desk dating back to when the hotel opened in 1899. The spaciousness is evocative of the colonial era, when guests often stayed for months at a time – bringing their own bone china and fine crystal with them.

Offering the ultimate in luxurious seclusion, there are eight Garden Cottage suites housed in perfectly restored Victorian cottages. Each is set in its own rose garden with a white picket fence, with easy access to the swimming pool. Their sumptuous décor features toile wallpaper, Venetian mirrors, four poster beds and working fireplaces. Not surprisingly they are highly sought after by honeymooning couples and those seeking privacy.
