Methodist Resort
Ranked #36 of 278 Nairobi B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 5, 2007

You may not find this place in the guide book (it isn't in ours), so that is why I am submitting it. Please note that having gone through Nairobi several times that I have not stayed anywhere but here, so I cannot compare this to other properties. First of all, you don't have to be a Methodist to stay here; they'll never ask you about that! It is primarily a place where groups (church, mission) can stay, meet, and eat. I would call this a semi-commercial establishment, as MGH is building a new hotel high rise right next door. Located in a mostly residential area, it is quiet, has 24 hour security, and two steel entry gates! This is where we go when we've got 10+ hours of jet-lag and want a quiet place to go to rest where we don't have to leave the grounds for any reason, not even to eat, unless we want to. If you do want to do a bit of shopping, the western-style Ya Ya Centre is five minute matatu ride away. We usually get full board, so we eat all of our meals in the dining room, where you will find good variety of food, and very attentive service. At breakfast, the chef sets up in the dining area to prepare your eggs just the way you like them! Not cheap, especially if you are on full board, and definitely not fancy with smallish rooms, this is the kind of place you can depend on to be consistently the same.
