We stopped at Sagala on the drive between Nairobi and Mombasa. We arrived later than expected (8.30pm) and the staff were wating for us and were ready to cook our evening meal straight away (we were the only guests). They gave us a warm welcome. Our room was clean and comfortable, although I'm not sure why it was equipped with a fan, given that they turn off the generator at 10.15pm.
Given that we travelled in low season, we didn't mind too much that the drinks we wanted were out of stock. Dinner was fine (chicken stew with rice, fruit for dessert- no options), however breakfast consisted of 1 egg and a slice of toast. And that was it. When we came to pay our bill to leave, we were told that they only accept cash, not credit cards. We had not been advised of this on booking, and it's lucky that we were carrying cash with us - could have been embarrassing otherwise!
