    The amenities had changed and no longer offered self catering facilities. We ate one dinner there and thought it poor, maybe we were unlucky. The self catering kitchen had become a bar but it was seldom open. The fridges at reception had no white wine to buy There seemed to be few guests. We much preferred the previous self catering option which also offered breakfast and dinner if required. The current prohibition of bringing any alcohol or food onto the premises was officious and unfriendly.

    The faded photographs say it all, people told me not to try the food as it is snatched away so I didn't. I asked about guides and was given the cold shoulder. Do not travel my Mszani bus as they leave you stranded and do not care about client safety.
