8/10 Very good

I paid in full upon arrival. However upon checking out they demanded a furyher 2000 KES because the dollar / KES rate had changed. I'm sure if it had moved the other way, they would offer me a small refund. I refused to pay but did when it became apparent that the cashier would have the diffetence deducted from his salary. The garden and pool are is fabulous, as are the staff. The rooms are tired though and not really worth the money. The AC is ineffective. I would not stay here again though purely because of the odious practice I've described above.
