I stayed here from the 2nd june 2004 for a few days when I went to meet my girlfriends family for the 1st time (She's now my wife). I contacted the the hotel directly along with several other hotels and this was the hotel that gave the most prompt and helpful answers and othe advise and organised a good if expensive taxi from the airport.
Even after my wife had returned to her familyfor a few days they were kind enough to only charge me the discounted rate for Kenyan residents in a Single room although I got to stay in the Double room.
Also they advised me to walk to the Akamba station with an Askari rather than catch a taxi.
The breakfasts were rather samey but at the price were fair and always well cooked, they also were more than happy to serve me breakfast early so that i could be in time for the bus to upcountry(or shags as it is better known to the younger generation). The bamburi weren't that helpful when we were coming back from the coast on this charge around Kenya meeting the possible relatives at the time (they now are relatives)
