My Birthday Splurge!”
After 3 nights of low budget but great places, I needed to splurge for my birthday - the Giritale Hotel was just what the doctor ordered! I wanted a Pool, I got a beautiful pool with a view, I wanted a Beer, I got an ice cold Lion Lager with a view and a bonus elephant on the opposite shore of the lake! I wanted air conditioning and a mosquito free room for the night! I got an air conditioned mosquito free room for the night! The sunset was phenomenal over the lake and the morning sunrise on the mountains was pretty great too! The staff was attentive and helpful and my stay was exactly what I needed and expected!

great location hotel but overrated and overpriced.”
location, the view from the hotel and wild elephants on the road to the hotel
the Hotel is pretty let down, the room was pretty let down. bed and furniture was old, mattress was worn out. the staff was very polite, but it wasn't worth the price for sure. if it was 50% of that, i would agree, but not that amount. additionally hotel wasn't able to provide taxi to airport with basic safety needs - seat belts. we definitely encourage everyone to book your taxi directly from official airport taxi - it will be much cheaper and safe as well, because the way how they drive there is not so safe. and if you take a bottle of water it will cost you about 30 times more than that you can buy on the street or in a shop..food was +/- ok.
