We stayed for one night on a stop over to Diani. You can hear the bar noise from your room so that sucked! It is a basic hotel and the breakfast was really very disappointing. However, the food at the bar area was top notch especially the masala chips.

I hated everything more so food! Can't recommend to a rat coz the rotten mbuzi choma they served me would definitely kill it. Old tiles in the bathroom, no microwave, no fridge ...I mean I can't imagine I spent my 2nd anniversary in this hotel...

Went to Mombasa for a holiday last year. Tried adds places for good food and trust me this was the best place for clean, freshly made food. Had Grill Lamb (Mbuzi Choma as locally referred), with chips and salad. The best in the island. This is a must try, won't regret.

Rooms are very, spacious and clean, good service, nice live band in the evening. Good food. Having stayed here twice before, it just made sense to return for a third time and we were not disappointed.

The good: comfortable, spacious, beautifully appointed room. The bad; a disconnect between the sort of clientele the hotel would attract and the restaurant/bar/nightclub attraction. When I called about shuttle service we were assured the hotel provided it- we were not informed it was at our cost or how much it would be. The room was spotless, but dirt and dried... More

In the huge bar there is live music Fridays and Sundays. Its a nice vibe. Fridays is best. A lot of cool (adult) locals, probably down from Mombasa. Food is ok not fantastic. Drink prices are a little above average but the entertainment is worth it. The hotel is very good and reliable.
