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.

Its a real pity as just needs a paint etc and this could be a nice place. The outside bar area nice with a good garden have only been here twice and that was for food and drinks. It had wifi which for me is a great plus and its free. The golf club is about ten mins walk and... More

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

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

The Garden hotel is nice to have a tea in the garden. For sleeping it is far from ideal. Lots of evening party noise and the matrasses in the beds are really really OLD and worn out. Not value for money. I

The Garden Hotel is mostly used by NGOs holding workshops, as it is affordable and had decent facilities. The place is nicely located in a green garden. The building is ok, albeit somewhat old fashioned and worn out. Staff is helpful, if somewhat too serious, and the main hall is spacious and has lots of natural light. The rooms are... More
