It pains me a little to give a low review of this hotel. The staff at this hotel was the most genuinely humble staff I have ever come across. So much so that you find yourself wanting to love this hotel. Kericho in itself, is an area where there aren't many hotel options. So, if I compared Sunshine Hotel to... More

One is welcomed at the gates by a friendly security detail keen to show you where to park. There is limited parking inside but o had no problem getting an overnight slot. The receptionists are charming and articulate. A helpful pair of hands ported my luggage into the lift to the 4th floor. Surprisingly, given that I had arrived well... More

Sunshine Hotel Upperhill is modern yet basic hotel in the center of Kericho. Clean, simple rooms with attached bathrooms. Both the room and bathroom which might benefit from better lighting. It was difficult to read a book with no bedside lamp. There was a mouldy smell in the bathroom, but a hot shower was a definite plus. There is a... More

I visited the hotel while facilitating a strategy workshop for ICPAK. Good central location though parking is poorly planned. For those with children there's limited options for your kids. The hotel is great for business meetings and has great wifi all over which makes it convenient for a business person. Staff are super friendly and fast.

The New Sunshine Hotel Upper Hill is adequate for a short stay in Kericho - you get a small but clean room, and great views if you get a room to the back of the hotel. There was a fair bit of noise from the cleaning staff in the morning, but I otherwise had a comfortable night's rest, and the... More

There are indeed two sunshine hotels in Kericho - the original in town, noisy well priced with hot showers. The other the upper one has bleak rooms, tepid showers and a restaurant to avoid. The only reason to go there is if you want wifi - this is good.

There are 2 Sunshine Hotels owned by the same operators. The one in town, and unless it has changed, is noisy with very limited parking. I would recommend New Sunshine Upper Hill which is newer and seems to be quieter at least the last 2 times I stayed there. The staff are very willing to help out but may not... More

Had an overnight stay on our way back to Nairobi. First impressions were ok. The staff were quite friendly and rooms warm and clean. I think it may be the best place to stay when on a short trip to Kericho. The tea was remarkably good...if you are looking for a great cup of Kenyan mixed tea, this is the... More

We checked in to this hotel after leaving Taidy's which was a few meters down the road. The service was remarkable right from check-in as we were well received. The room was very clean, warm and cosy - almost 5 star level. I would greatly recommend this place. Best value for money in Kericho.
