Watercrest is an excellent place to stay especially if you are a no-frills person. The staff are friendly and very welcoming, the rooms are clean and neat, the food well made and it is generally good value for your money. A little difficult to find (they are happy to give you directions as you make your way) but once you... More

We struggled initially to find the Watercrest Gardens but it was worth it. Clean and comfortable with wonderful attentive hosts. The art on the walls is lovely. There are no flashy extras but everything that is done is done well. Food is well cooked and the menu is flexible. My highlight was the last breakfast when they set the table... More

We have just spent a week staying at the Watercrest Gardens guest house. It has been the perfect place to stay whilst we visited Eldoret for the first time. Leah and Fred were outstanding with their hospitality, helpful, friendly, couldn't do enough for us. We enjoyed hot showers, clean and very comfortable beds, and very clean guest house. Breakfasts were... More

We were staying in Nairobi for the summer of 2012 and had to make a quick trip to Kitale in July to conclude a business deal. We couldn’t fly into Kitale so picked Eldoret as being close. We checked with TripAdvisor and saw the WaterCrest site as the most appealing and workable, based on only two TA reviews. We are... More

I stayed in Eldoret for one night on business, and the staff at Watercrest was extremely friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean, and I had no mosquito trouble (though there were no nets) -- no complaints! I'd love to return to visit the lovely owners.

We were travling from Kampala and Watercrest was a good place to stop. We had crossed the border a few hours earlier and were very tired. The folks at the guesthouse are very good......words cannot express how good they are at what they do. The room we stayed it needs a mirror in the bathroom but other that this everything... More

Eldoret town is noisy and chaotic. I prefer to stay at this tranquil guesthouse in the suburbs, just south of town. Comfortable and cozy. There's nice gardens, they're so hospitable, very nice rooms, and they don't blare the TV all night. Mama Mia, Eldoret's only serious dining option, is also nearby. I can't say enough how hospitable these folks are.... More

There seems little choice in Eldoret, and you are likely to be a bit disappointed on first arriving at Watercrest Gardens, but don't panic! The rooms are old-fashioned by western business standards, but most are roomy and all are clean, with very comfortable beds. The hotel stands in a pretty walled garden and is secure. However, what REALLY sets this... More

I was traveling with a group of five and we stayed there for two nights while on business in the Eldoret area. We had trouble finding the place and so Felix, one of the staff, actually came out to town to guide us to Watercrest Gardens! Even got to meet the owners--had a great conversation with them about the work... More
