Basic rooms, clean, friendly staff, good food and safe. Have been several times over the years, and always found it exactly the same! Swimming pool usually very busy with schools or non residents.

The Room was fine. Our stay was fine. We avioded dining in (not impressed at appearance of the buffet based on the price asked... but that was a personal decision). Breakfast was decent. "Terrible" rating is based on a bad experience following our stay. I lost a camera charger (left it in the room, my own fault). A few days... More

Returning to the Methodist Guest House in October (for my 4th or 5th stay) was like going back to meet old friends. From the warm welcome at the check in to the friendliness of the restaurant staff we knew we would have a comfortable and relaxed stay. Along with 5 colleagues we were using the MGH as our base for... More

We stayed here while visiting Nairobi a few days before going on a safari. It seemed to be a reasonable cost and a good alternative to the pricey hotels the safari companies recommended. It has everything you need- clean rooms, hot showers, access to breakfast and other food, internet. Most of all, it is safe. It is protected 24/7 by... More

The MGH is average. It is large and as a result quite impersonal I found. The rooms are fine, basic, but have everything you need, bed, lamp, mossie net. My mossie net was in a poor state but I always take gaffer tape so was able to plug the holes. Plenty of hot water in a compact ensuite - all... More

I stayed at the MGH for a month whilst looking for cheaper long term accommodation - I thought it was expensive, especially as I later moved into a furnished studio apartment that cost per week what the MGH charged for a couple of nights. The food in the dining room was also disgusting - I can't understand the good food... More

Our church mission teams have stayed at the MGH nearly every year for the past 7 years. Not only is the MGH a great place to stay - safe, reasonably priced, and with full or half board available in their restaurant - the staff is incredibly hospitable and service-oriented. Timothy was especially helpful, always with a huge smile. The restaurant... More

Excellent safe haven in a great location - we spent 10 nights in the Methodist Guest house while visiting Kenya and working with children in a Children's home. We travelled as a family - we have three children aged 11,14,17 and we felt perfectly safe and at home here. The staff were fantastic particularly Timothy and they couldnt have done... More
