This facility is comprised of separate lodges - small houses, really. Airy, bright and well-appointed. There is a pool and a restaurant on the property. Although it's showing some wear and tear, and I would not vouch for the lack of bugs, it's a good place to stay near Gonder.

We stayed here for a total of two nights, in different rooms, separated by one night in Simien Mountains National Park. Very early in the morning, there is chanting coming, not from a church, but from an athletic club working out, we were told. However, it did not really bother us. The rooms, beds, and bathrooms were comfortable and clean. Dinner and breakfast in the restaurant were good (but a bit of a walk up a hill from the rooms.) No complaints, except for the Internet being limited to the reception area and even then, not good. However, the receptionists let us connect through their cell phones and that worked well, if not as convenient as being in our rooms. While it is some distance from the sight in the city centre, we recommend it.

Stayed here for one night with family. Excellent location just a few minutes away from the airport. Our rooms (21-22 as far as I recall) were excellent, especially the bathrooms and large windows which let in a lot of light impressed. The terrace connected to the restaurant offers a great view, we really enjoyed eating our breakfast there. I would definitely come back here to stay another time, one night was not enough.

This lodge has good rooms - we luckily got upgraded to the newer and larger rooms which were very nice. The restaurant has good quality food and the service was excellent. There is a nice terrace with lovely views from the restaurant. We ended up seeing a local wedding at the hotel and joining in to dance at a corporate event being held there! I would highly recommend.

This wonderful lodge is 5 minutes from the airport but since there are practically no flights it is very quiet. The rooms are large and beautiful, perfectly clean, spread over a large garden. The restaurant is on a hill-top with beautiful views. The food is absolutely delicious, especially the European dishes; service is surprisingly quick for Ethiopia and very friendly.

We loved the spacious room, the surroundings, the kind staff and the restaurant. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was nice and hot. We stayed for 2 nights and the only downside was the amplified chanting from the local church that started at 3 am (being a Sunday) but there wasn't much the hotel could do about that. The regular wifi did not work due to a cable cut but the manager set up a hotspot on his phone which worked well in the lobby. Breakfast was a buffet one day, due to large group staying, otherwise it was a la carte. Good quality and quantity. The terrace is great for both eating or drinking. Of the staff in the restaurant, Abush was particularly attentive and efficient. It's a way out of Gondar and there's nothing much nearby but after a day of being a tourist it's a great place to relax. It wasn't warm enough for us to use the pool but more hardy souls did.

We spent two nights at Mayleko in a royal bungalow, which was adequate. Quite basic but ok for a couple of nights. The bed and pillows were uncomfortable. Breakfast and dinner were simple but ok. Note there is church nearby and you are awaken at 5.30 in the morning by their loud prayers (they go on for a couple of hours); we chose the lodge as we thought it was quiet... The pool itself is ok but the area around it is very run down with broken/uncomfortable chairs. It 40 minutes drive from Gondar , but very close to the airport. Booking, payment and confirmation were a bit hard work (I had to email several times to get replies) but got there in the end. Staff were nice. Overall an ok stay but quite basic.

This lodge was a lovely place. The rooms are separate little cottages with ample space. The food is really good with nice service. The grounds are basic---this is probably not a 4 star hotel as I have rated it and by our Anerican standards (but it is not as low as a 3) and I loved it. There are so many birds in the yard. I could have stayed all day and just looked at the birds! If I go back, this is where I want to stay. The en suite bathrooms are ample size with hot water. I really loved this hotel.

Well I have traveled extensively throughout Africa, let alone the world, over the last 30 plus years as a Nomad and Wander. I was really hipped to stay here and once I arrived I was literally appalled. Though it appears they are and have been attempting to achieve something it just hasn’t made it on the Top Ten list as it has been noted. Let’s face it after one night I moved to another location and sucked up the $700.00 dollar loss for this place being none refundable. The rooms suck over all, you don’t get what you see. The batherroom is the nices part of the entire lodge in my opinion. The Restrauant is over priced and boast how its on location. People every hotel in Africa has and on site Restrauant let alone room service. Oh did I mention no room service either, and let alone no phones in rooms. Fellow Nomads and Wanders please don’t waste your time, head the extra couple of miles into town by the University and the hotels are all 4 & 5 stars for half the price.
