Amboseli Lodge: "Stay somewhere else if you can!" Amboseli National Park Hotel Tip by ClareinDubai

Amboseli National Park Hotels: 17 reviews and 37 photos

We stayed here for one evening as part of a safari. There were lots of little points that made our stay memorable for the wrong reason! They may sound trivial, but put them all together and we decided to tell the managment that it wasn't a very nice place to stay! If you can stay somewhere else, I would. If you stay here expect the following....
--Don't lean on the railings over the fish pond, they aren't safe.
--The pool table, had a ball missing, the white looked like emmental cheese, there was no tips on the cues, it was also on a slope. (Very frustrating for someone who knows how to play, great fun for me especially after a few Tuskers!)
--The food was ok, but the same, very bland.
--They didn't put the mosquito net down, or spray the room. (Every other place we stayed did).
--We had no hot water for a shower in the morning.
-- The electricity went off at 7am, there is no warning about it like the other lodges.
--The receptionist was rude, we checked out and she found it such a hassle to collect our bar bill!

Unique Qualities: The pool looked very nice, and on a nice day, I believe you can see Kilimanjaro from here.....
