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.

Room tip: All the rooms are nice, but better further from the road

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.

Room tip: Higher numbered rooms are further away from the main road, not that it generates much noise

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.
