I stayed there recently while on a working trip. The hotel has an excellent location in the quieter part of Machakos town, with lots of trees and along a tarmac road. It is also near the government quarters so the security is presumably good. The grounds are well kept and the hotel has maintained a decent look despite being in... More

I was upgraded to a suite on arrival, so found the room to be fine. Bathroom particularly was a bit tired, but had reliable hot water and didn't smell. Food is good, but buffet lunches (if you're on the B&B tariff) are over-priced. Staff generally pleasant and ready to please. Chef gave good recommendations of other places to eat in... More

I recently went with a team of people to Mitaboni, Kenya to build a playground for a children's home. Since there were no hotels in Mitaboni, the best place for us to stay was in Machakos so we stayed at the Garden Hotel. For those that travel a lot and aren't looking for something "high end" hey will know what... More

We stopped for a light lunch. Prices are reasonable but don't expect Kenyan food. All items are European or American like vegetable soup, pasta or avocado. Slow service made for a leisurely lunch. We walked the small gardens that are well maintained and saw our first horse, one offered for pony rides.

I was here this month with my friends. I got there before them very exhausted and had to wait from 11am-2pm to be shown to my room. I was content with it and decided to order another one for my friends who were on their way. The people at the reception assured me that the 2nd room would look exactly... More
