I can understand the negative reviews for this club but you do need to be able to see past the shabby or perhaps almost derelict bits of the buildings. Rooms were clean with fresh sheets and towels soap and water in the room. Showers were hot and beds comfortable. After two stopovers on a road trip we preferred the charm... More

Stepping into the Nyanza Club feels like stepping back in time. Although a lot obviously hasn't changed in the past 50 years - the newer rooms are perfectly comfortable, the Indian food tasty and the secure street parking a relief after a long road trip. Have a drink by the pool and let the day slip by.

It may be old and worn but Nyanza Club had that old English social club charm. The old buildings must date back to the 30's with those heavy metal-framed windows and tall community hall-like ceilings. I rather enjoyed the charm reminiscent of the English summer fair community hall only minus the purple rinsed old ladies and their jams. My room... More

As others have mentioned, the Nyanza Club is a colonial-era private member's club which offers accommodation to non-members. Accommodation is in two blocks - the original wing and "new" wing (all relative, it certainly wasn't very new). I was there on business and stayed in the new block, since I'd been warned by a local that the original wing had... More

This was my worst stay ever at the Nyanza Club. Although the newly paved path from office to rooms is a big plus---no more slipping in the mud with your luggage---we lost water for two days and I only had cold water for another one (no hot water). Internet was out most of one night and parts of others. For... More

Friendly service in a decent location and spacious grounds, but not much more positive to say. Dining/breakfast room is very dark and musty, room furniture is old and worn. When seated on my bed a bat showed up from behind the mosquito net and started flapping about. Might not be a sign of great cleaning... Kisumu could really do with... More

Great outdoor space (pool and tennis courts), lovely setting close to the lake. Accommodation mainly clean but basic and slightly tired decoration. Good functional accommodation for a stop over but not luxurious. Breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold food but lunch and dinner were average.

Despite being Kenya's third (or fourth since the influx of Somali refugees) largest city, Kisumu is really short on good accommodation options. We checked out a few (which were all full) before we came to the Nyanza Club. We rejected it, but then returned when the other ones proved to be full or worse. What can I say? It's OKAY.... More

I stayed for three nights at Nyanza Club in February 2012, being in Kisumu for business. The hotel is a bit out of town so you probably need to use tuk tuks or hop on the back of a motorbike to get to the city if you don't have a ride. You can walk to the Impala Park. I really... More

No hot water. Toilet didn't flush. Wi-Fi never worked. This all in the OLD section of the hotel Still: clean, charming, and with gorgeous views of Lake Victoria. USE the provide mosquito net because there WILL be bugs (and bats outside). The proximity to the lake guarantees this. If you stay in the newer section, the rooms are more "air... More
