A lovely spot in Nanuyki on our way to Laikipia. Very clean accommodation, and superb mattress! Polite, helpful staff. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast, there, plus their garden and playground. Good value!

Having read reviews about the kuku Choma, I expected more. The One we had was too dry and not tasty. The salad was okay. In general the food was too dry. The kids area was good several activities and n extra payment required.

Visited here when staying with fiances mum who lives down the road. Not advertised anywhere - as far as I can tell, but popular with the locals. (I'm currently updating trip advisor with all the places I visited in Nanyuki).
