Ankober Palace Lodge – great place ,been twice BUT
1. Customers need to be aware you have to leave your car at the bottom of the conical hill on which lodge is built and climb steps/footpath for 5/10minutes to reach reception. Not the place to take the elderly or immobile..
2. You are some 9000ft plus – you need warm clothes in the evenings – restaurant has a fire but rooms chilly.
3. As at 09/09 Addis to Debre Berhan road under repair 2009 – ie new tarmac being done…
BUT Don’t be put off by these facts… it is a magical place —you will probably get photos with the clouds below you in the valley…..
