I was looking forward to staying at the Guest House. I had heard good things from a couple people about the accommodations and a friend lives in Lavington, so I'd be close to her. The nightmare began with the on-line deposit. I debated long before I decided to go ahead and use what I was told was a secure link.... More

I stayed there for a few nights earlier this year (2013). It is in a good location with plenty of places to eat nearby. The rooms were simple but ok. Hot water worked fine. No Mosquito net in my room. The internet was not really working that well when i was there, so this could be an inconvenience. Good service... More

Room but changed to a twin as the Dbl is all Bed at difficult to move around. The water was plentiful and very,very Hot. Seems to be common experience of all reviewers. The location is good... More

This was the only place we stayed in Kenya. It is dated but clean. Hot water all day. The internet is non-existent unless you log on between midnight and 5 am! The meals are the same every day and the quality decreased as the evening progressed. Often there was little selection and poor quality later in the evening. Staff was... More

By African standards, this place is a palace. Safe, clean and affords you all of the comforts and securities of home. Laundry, good food, the only place I've seen in Kenya that brews coffee (typically you will see instant powdered coffee and hot water, or just tea). The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The wifi signal is weak pretty... More

We could barely open the door to our room as the bed covered 90% of the floor space. The general atmosphere was good but for the price we paid this was not good value for money. There is a large swimming pool but this can be extremely busy so don't expect a leisurely swim.

My room was $80 (single person) but even that was over priced for what I got. The shower and bathroom area (photos) were grungy. The bathroom made you not want to use it. The basic single bed itself was fair but the sheets were suspect. The dinner (buffet) was terrible. Spaghetti or over cooked quartered fish with bones, rice, fruit... More

Stayed here together with a big group in January. Pros: - The standard was quite good (for the price) - Good service from the staff - Free internet (or, it costs money, but so little that they give the login information to you for free) - Nice swimming pool about 50 m from the hotel, free to use Cons: -...

Stayed here for the first time the night before and the night after my safari in the standard room. It was average, but compared to other places, it was good enough for the price. Here are the pros and cons: pros - relatively good price (paid about 50 euro/night breakfast included) - lots of security to get into the premises... More
