Unexpectedly very clean. The curry chicken was good. Fried tilapia was not fresh though. Decent bathrooms and a good stop on the way back to nairobi from lake bogoria. The service was fast and appreciated as we were in a rush to get to nairobi.

Our safari company dropped us off at this dump and I am glad it was only 1 night. I suppose it must be a really cheap place.

It was the worst hotel I have ever seen/been. Rooms quality, dining room cleanliness (floor was covered with yesterdays food), possibility to sleep (mosquitoes, no mosquitoe' net, screaming neighbours)... We only stayed there one night and waited the opportunity to leave quickly in the morning, In the morning we left, we almoust step on vomit on the floor...

I stayed here with a mission group. I rated this hotel not based on American standards...after all this is not the EU or US. That being said this hotel was fine. Rooms were clean although I would like to have screens on the windows and most mosquito nets have holes in them. The best thing was the food...all meals were... More
