Just found the below report on Hotel Djenné Djenno on Trip-Advisor, which cheered me up somewhat, (apart from the mention of powercuts.) The person stayed a night just before I arrived back and it was the only night when the electricity played up since we bought our new generator in June- it was a question of a faulty fuse-box and the problem has not recurred. The electricity is not the problem at the hotel at the moment!

'The Djenné-Djenno is a lovely hotel literally just outside of Djenné (5mins walk to the city center). keeping with the UNESCO protected sudanese style architecture of Djenné, the rooms are arranged around a spacious courtyard. Our room was tastefully furnished and decorated, with a basic ensuite bathroom and air conditioning. After the bustle of the town it was a great place to relax and enjoy the view of the city, with the great mosque poking out above the roofs. We didn't meet the owner, but the staff were very attentive, friendly and helped us find an excellent guide to show us around town (a good guide is what really makes Djenné worthwhile in my opinion). The only drawback was that the generator couldn't quite cope with the energy needs of a fully booked hotel and kept cutting out, so reading was not really an option once the sun had set.'
