The first morning breakfast was great the next day we were told there was no sausage etc. One of the rooms we stayed in had molds on the curtains and was very stuffy but the other... More

We remember you and your wonderful family and the warm chats we had, helping your daughter make friends with snoppy our dog who she was afraid of.

My wife, two adult children and I just returned from a nine-day visit to Kenya to visit our daughter in Nairobi. We spent four nights at Godial's, before and following a safari and after a short trip to Mombasa. It is a safe and scenic place that quickly felt like our home away from home. The staff is very friendly... More
