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 rate this a "very good" given my expectations (or aspirations) for the location--if I were in Nairobi I would rate it an average, but for being out in a fairly small city, I was very pleased to find a hotel that is very clean and also has wireless internet. As other reviewers mentioned, it is somewhat older but the... More
