KILIMA, Manager at BEST WESTERN Kilima Hotel, responded to this review
Dear John A, Thank you for your kind review of the hotel and I hope to see you both very soon. Just a quick note to others that will read this we now charge for the car park but if you book direct by phone with the hotel you will never be charged for car parking. Also for the benefit of others if you have a request it will only become a guarantee when you book direct. So to avoid extra charges and disappointment at not getting your request all you have to do is pick up the phone and dial 01904 625787 and if you use your mobile or call after 6pm the call is probably free as well. Regards to all and looking forward to your call. Chris
