Absolutely serene. I had a great 4 days stay here with my family. Plenty of space in the quiet cottage. The pool and gym looked great although I didn't try them out. Spent mornings on the porch warming in the sunshine. The staff were super helpful and welcoming. I look forward to my next visit.

The landscaping is amazing. Very relaxing, quiet, peaceful. We stayed in the cottages and really enjoyed the privacy. The service can be a bit slow but the staff are very helpful. The mosquito nets in the room hang quite low which can be annoying but other than that the room was ok.

Well set hospitality outfit on the fringes of the Lake Victoria basin and just above the towering Nandi Escarpment. Perfect and serene atmosphere. Well done cottages with a tasty finish.The temperatures are well balanced.

Located at least 20 minutes out of Kisumu; Beautiful scenery, ideal for environmental groups. You can carry out a team building activity here and enjoy the beauty of the place. The scenery & cottages remind me a bit of Brackenhurst, Limuru.

The place is serene and located out of town. The meal options are also great and rather affordable. The service times need to be improved though; advisable for you to calm and book a table or order prior

Sosa cottages in Vihiga County provide a country side homely feel;the landscaping- well manicured lawns, flowers and hedges, make this place scenic and relaxing. We took the self-contained two bedroom cottages; the houses have modern facilities & friendly staff. The location is great as you can shop for vegetables in the market nearby. It's easily accessible and you can take morning walks in the area outside the hotel. Great place also for meetings,weddings, team building sessions or a just sun downer! It adds to the list of magical Kenya!!

Beautiful, peaceful, and great place to hold meetings and entertain people when you are in Vihiga County. Vihiga County is a stone throw away from Kisumu City. You can avoid the hustle and bustle of the city by staying and dinning at Sossa Cottages.

I was at Sosa cottages on a business trip and it's an amazing place. The villas are specious and lovely, I enjoyed the sunset resting at the villa balcony. From what I saw it Sosa cottages, have mixed dwelling that are distantly located for privacy. The restaurant and foods was very lovely, staff were keen to detail and yeah it's a perfect place. My villa was clean, hot showers and I would visit again with family. They have a swimming pool, a gym and a sauna it's a gem in Vihiga county worth a visit, the price is pocket friendly as compared to the amenities. I highly recommend it.

i stayed at Sosa for a week and loved everything, i mean everything! From very clean rooms, room service when i needed it, laundry, very generous breakfast, cool quiet nights and deep nights as am one of those people who dont sleep well in new environments. Am even paying for my son to stay for a whole week to just enjoy the tranquility, environment, friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was stolen from my room-i did leave valuables and money hanging around! I highly recommend this serenity to everyone who needs to slow down on life and just enjoy life.

Another establishment I visited while touring the Western circuit. Sosa Cottages are located in Vihiga county about 10 minutes drive from the town center. The hotel itself is beautiful , has lovely gardens and a pool side area. We visited for lunch and an afternoon swim. Unfortunately, the service we received was terrible. We visited during a busy weekend so we expected some slight delays but we were not amused by; - 30 minute delays to serve us drinks - 1 hr 45 minute delay to serve food -Really rude and un-attentive staff, they got the drinks orders wrong after a thirty minute delay - The really poorly presented and tasteless food -The drainage at the changing rooms was really bad and was made worse by the fact that nobody showed up to mop up the floor all afternoon The only nice thing apart from the physical aspects of the property was the swim we enjoyed at the pool. I would not visit this place again. I only gave it two stars because it's beautiful
