I stayed at Mayfield on my way to and from a mission trip to Nakuru, Kenya. The rooms were comfortable with nice pillows and mattresses and windows that opened to cooling breezes. It was refreshing to have a wonderful warm shower and soft, sweet smelling towels. Meals are family style and scheduled so you have a chance to sit down... More

I have stayed at Mayfield a few times, and have always been happy. I am a missionary working in Tanzania, so it is always a treat to come up to Nairobi and network with other missionaries. Oh and the hot showers are something I enjoy. The staff is very accomodating, the family style meals are great and the food is... More

We recently stayed at Mayfield en route to and from Uganda. I last stayed at Mayfield when working in East Africa over forty years ago. Since that time there have been major expansions to the guest house. The accommodation and food were certainly very acceptable and the Kenyan workers were excellent. It was also good to enjoy stimulating and uplifting... More

I had heard of Mayfield over the years from several missionaries who had enjoyed its hospitality. I was not disappointed at all when I had the pleasure of staying there in May. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the facilities met all my needs and the food and friendship in the dining room was wonderful. The grounds provided a quiet... More

I thank G'd often for the treatment, the rest and care I had there. I was welcomed and taken care of after my mission trip to Tanzania. The food was wonderfully prepared and there was ample supply. There was protein sources, which lacked in the "bush". It was comfort food leaving out the "junk". I needed to get there to... More

Mayfield is a wonderful place to stay with friends or as a single traveler. With friends you can enjoy communal or single rooms with a central, homey living room for chatting and even a home-theater for watching movies and television. As a single, you can also take advantage of the friendly atmosphere to meet many fellow travelers around the dining... More

We stayed here for two nights. This was the first night of our Missionary trip to Kenya. Our second night here was on our return, the evening before our flight back. The first night was admittedly a bit of a culture shock. Fresh from America, the bathrooms seemed a old/outdated. The beds were comfortable. Some in our group shared bunk... More
