“Top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Hard to find but with the trip! Stayed at The Boma Nairobi so wanted to try the hotel in Eldoret. Had to flag down a taxi driver to escort me there but once I arrived i was glad i made the trip. The room was identical to the one in Nairobi and much less expensive. It is located outside the noisy city and the view was beautiful. The food was exceptional especially the fried shrimp. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful! Staff goes out of its way to make the stay enjoyable. I plan to visit again soon as it is an oasis in the middle of chaos!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the pool! Worth the upgrade to a bathtub!

I needed to spend a weekend in Eldoret and found Boma Inn on TripAdvisor. Glad I picked it. They were very courteous both on email and in person. I requested an early check in and late check out and they were happy to oblige. The facilities are lovely. It's in a quiet neighbourhood so I got to relax away from the general hustle and bustle.. Loved the room; a few teething problems with the shower hot/cold regulator but understandable as they are just finishing the build. The breakfast of champions was a sure winner. I will most definitely be back!

Your wonderful staff are your treasure! Binti at reception, the team at the health centre, our wonderful bell boy who gave us a tour. Keep it up! See you all again.

I stayed at the Boma Inn for roughly 3 weeks in Febuary/March 2014 and was pleasantly surprised . The staff were all courteous and kind and took the time to look after you. The restaurant was excellent and everyone who worked there were always willing to help out where they could.
I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Eldoret.
Rooms were good and very clean.
You will not be dissapointed if you stay here.

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty good , i had one overlooking the pool area , which was good as on some weekends...

Boma Inn was a very welcome addition to the hotels, guest houses and restaurants in Eldoret. I use the hotel on a regular basis for business colleagues visiting and, other than occasional hot water issues and bathroom drainage issues, the hotel accommodation receives very good reviews. The majority of the staff, especially the reception staff and waiters also receive good reviews. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the restaurant food. On too many occasions now the food has been poorly prepared or not even available. Fillet steak and lamb chops are possibly the worst in Eldoret, both in terms of tenderness and the quality of the cooking and the salads are very uninspiring. It is even becoming a little embarrassing to take my business colleagues here for dinner as there is always at least one problem. Discussions with the catering staff appear to result in little improvement. Perhaps I just need to be more patient, but I would have thought that seven months was enough to sort out kitchen teething problems.

WOW WOW WOW! Travel to Eldoret a lot for business. It was my first time to stay there and everything about the hotel is just fantastic! Kudos to Boma for opening a branch in Eldoret. Makes our stay comfortable. The reception especially Betsy, Joy and Abel receive special recommendation. The breakfast was lovely. The rooms were very comfortable. Keep up the highly recommendable service and maintenance, and you will not go wrong. Worth it!

I decided to visit Boma for dinner last week on Friday and I was amazed by the beautiful hotel. It was late at night and I was unable to see much of the hotel. However, we asked for some hot drinks and it took almost 30 minutes for the waiter to come back. To our surprise, we were given some sachets for chocolate drink instead of a ready drink. We wondered how different this is with a cheap restaurant in town. When it came to dinner time we were directed to a buffet that had been set outside and the food was pretty cold - you wonder why they decided to have a buffet at night given the chilly night weather in Eldoret. There was a DJ also playing some old Lingala music from a cheap music system - it was actually noise and not music. You wonder why the hotel could not use the piped music system to play cool and appropriate music. I am visiting again this weekend to give more assessment.

Dear Philemon,

Greetings from Boma Inn, Eldoret!!!

Thank you for using our services and for your honest feedback.

I wish to apologise on behalf of my team for the poor service. We had done a special dinner for our long staying guests who wanted an outdoor dining experience but definitely it did not meet the expectations of all our esteemed guests like yourself.

We will endeavor to offer the best service as always done.

I do believe that your most recent stay with us was better and request your honest feedback as always.
