The lady owner, Jane, and her family were really warm and welcoming. The cabins are simple but done tastefully and were really comfortable. The food was excellent and the bar had extremely fair beer prices. I would recommend Guesthouse Jane to anyone passing through our having an extended stay in Naivasha. Really nice dog too ☺☺

26 Dec 14 - 9 Jan 15 The motto of Guesthouse Jane is prefect! The accommodations were great! Within walking distance of Naivasha the grounds were well maintained, pool clean, and the apartment was very spacious. During our stay at Guesthouse Jane we encounter no problem with the water. We opted for the full board option and the food was... More

I have been here two times, and must say its a home away from home for me. They can accommodate large groups comfortably and have very welcoming staff. There is something for everyone from a pool, to quiet areas to read and think.. highly recomended

The place needs to be renovated.there were non functioning switch lights,the swimming pool was dirty.The was no hot water for showering despite being told numerous times that the water was being heated.We were also not allowed to use the bath tabs. I believe the place can be very nice if they attend to some of these things above

My friends and I stayed here for 3 days, at the main building. After seeing a review that the pool was dirty, we called and specifically requested for the pool to be cleaned before our arrival. It wasn't! We arrived to an atrociously dirty pool with still water. We voiced our disappointment to Jane and Dieter and they promised to... More

I visited the facility with some friends (group of 13). The house was large enough to accommodate the entire group n more. The resident chefs prepared very good meals as per our agreed menu. Two thing that I found distasteful were lack of hot water in the showers and a dirty pool. The former was dependent on the solar heating... More

Stayed in the main building for a week in February, from the outside it looks great, inside is cosy but aging. The water supply could do with a complete service, the pressure is too low for the showers to work correctly, plus we were left without any water twice during our stay, the main water pump failed. The staff are... More

We went here to go to Hell's gate national park and we're given one of the 'bungalows'. The bungalow's are simple, but nice and very clean. We opted for the bed and breakfast option, which one morning was good: egg prepared in a way of your choice, toast with jam, juice, tea and fruit. And the other morning was a... More
