The main building is stunning with its cathedral height ceilings, huge windows and open fires with lovely views of the gardens.
Our room was equally impressive - large and beautifully decorated.
When you arrive, they tell you that you should not walk in the grounds after dark without being escorted by a security guard as the hippos from the lake come out to graze. We were initially a bit concerned that this might be just a clever way to get more tips for the staff, but when our guard arrived, he shone his torch at an area about 10 feet away from us and there stood a massive hippo. There were at least 10 of them in the grounds that night as one of the other guards took us for a walk later to show us.
The food at the hotel was great and so was the bar so we were really sorry that we had to leave after only 1 night!

A lovely large dining room with excellent meals, even a roaring wood fire in the corner, not that it needed it as the weather was hot, nice to sit in the bar with a drink watching the dying embers though.
Has a swimming pool, sauna and gym, although didnt make use of the gym the sauna was nice.
You are warned not to wander about on your own for the hippos wandering up from the river nearby and that was true, after leaving the sauna, there was a huge hippo eating its dinner at the other side of the wall, very cute just wish id had my camera.
Wish we'd spend more than one night here, a lovely hotel.
