This place was a GREAT find ... we were in Muscat for a track meet at TAISM (The American Int'l School of Muscat) and stayed four nights. Rooms were clean, room, and the air-conditioner worked great. Location is superb. Rosemarie and Theresa picked us up at the airport and were always there to help 24/7 - friendly and reliable. They... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Nice rooms and great staff who could not have been more helpful and friendly. Good value for money and a nice change from the 5 stars but will all the amenities. Graet rooftop bar area for a relaxing slurp after a busy days site-seeing Used Nomad for our trips and they were also good.

We had had a wonderful time in chris and lorna guesthouse. Friendly and familial atmosphere, comfortable, spacious and spotless rooms. The trip ( mountains, desert, transfer to abu dhabi,...) was perfectly organised. with a friendly and careful driver... Chris and Lorna advices for restaurant, places of interests were precious. The kids felt at home. Highly recommended!

While on a short break to Oman with my 2 young children (aged 8 and 5) we stayed at Nomad Guest House in Muscat for 3 nights in April 2014. We didn't want to stay at one of the large, expensive and impersonal hotels and there appears to be a real lack of family-friendly, independent accomodation in Oman. We decided... More

I have found this guest house very hard to review. I was expecting so much from it based on traveller reviews but it did not live up to the promise. Had it not been for the reviews I would have been perfectly satisfied with it as a B & B but it was the reviews which lead me to choose... More

its not often that we have to respond to what we consider are bad reviews. it is very demoralising. But is it entirely fair? you write great things about the rooms but then only give 2 stars out of 5. With reference to the "end of season feeling" as we state on our website we have been instructed verbally by... More

We spent a long weekend in Oman, and we were welcomed by Rosemarie... Our room exceeded our expectations- it was a large room off the terrace, and very clean. Our first day we did a tour with Nomad Tours, and we had the pleasure to have the Owner Chris as our guide. While on the tour with Chris, it felt... More

The rooms were big and the breakfast great. We also enjoyed the roof terrace for an evening beer. However I wouldn't stay here again without a car (Muscat is very spread out and this is suburbia). The Arabian Fish Restaurant (walking distance) is a God-send - well recommended. Overall I thought it was a touch expensive for what you got,... More

I stayed at Nomad Guest House for 1.5 weeks visiting my nephew who was staying there. I shared my nephews room which was plenty big enough being very spacious and had a large shower room.
