This is a small, luxury guest house in an upmarket area of Kisumu. We had a small but well-kept bedroom with a queen -sized bed which was reasonably comfortable (open-coil springs with a firm feel). The house was very quiet at night although during the evenings it can be busy as locals come in for meals or drinks. Excellent evening...

Was introduced to this place by a friend on a Friday evening date. The grounds are great. If you are looking for a private, outdoor scenery this is the place. The service is great as well and its just a minute or two from town. The food is great too. You won't go wrong here.

We chose this hotel based on the good reviews and we were not disappointed. We had a good time at the Clarice Guest house. Very warm and welcoming team. The children especially enjoyed the attention they received from the staff. Rooms were good and the meals excellent.

I stayed 3 nights at Clarice's Guest House in Kisumu, and that is the place you want to be. Rooms are nice, staff very kind and the place served well cooked food (except the T-bone). Breakfast good, especially good coffee. I will definitely recommend this adorable place to everybody, I will be back.

This place is an absolute delight. Well kept manicured lawns, clean and stylish rooms with mosquito nets and hot water. TV in room, delicious local cuisine and a fully stocked bar. The area, Milimani, is also high class, safe and near good restaurants and shopping areas - west end mall (that has an Uchumi, a java and a woolworths), nakumatt...

My wife and I were in Kisumu in mid July 2014 and we had to find accommodation rather quickly. Through word of mouth we went to the Clarice house, and aren't we glad we did. Service was excellent, the rooms are comfortable and the food was great. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

We arrived in Kisumu late at night after driving from the Aberdares. Tired and dusty we were looking for somewhere quiet, affordable and clean where we could get something to eat and safely park our vehicle. We stumbled upon the Clarice House and what a pleasure. The rooms had aircon, toweling gowns, hot water in the showers, room service, clean...
