Just to the right of the Great East Rd, and not far from Juls, Oleander is clearly signposted as 'Intu Afrika'. Formerly La Maison, it has been taken over by Intu Afrika and was undergoing renovation in summer 2003, with a view to the international market. At present, its simple rooms are carpeted, with a fan and TV; six have en-suite tiled bathrooms, and the rest share showers and toilets, but all will eventually be en suite. The cottage in the grounds has its own kitchen and there's secure parking. If it stays sensibly priced, this could be one to watch.
