“Not quite right”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2008

We stayed at The Manson Hotal again on the 29th December for the one night again, mainly becaus it was convenient to the coaches for the trip back to nairobi the following Morning and the fact they don't charge you for arriving before 10am.

As arranged we turned up just about 9am the taxi driver had had problems finding me at the Airport -HE hadn't bothere with a sign though it should have been a SHE that brought my wife to the airport. On checking-In we discovered that the booking had not been put in the diary and that the discount promised for my wife as a resident apparently didn't exist. However on the upside they found 3possible rooms for us and let us choose it. Oddly, we ended up in the room we first used last year which had improved. this time I didn't have to harp on about needing a mosquito net it was fortunately already there. Also the shower had been mended since last year and there was a reasonable stream of hot water, exactly what I needed after the long flight from Gatwick to Mombasa.

The following morning we took our time going down to breakfast as my brother in law had booked a sensible timed coach. Breakfast consisted of an omelette and sausage., 2 slices of toast and a weak cup of tea from a plastic flask. I didn't mind that too much but the flask was taken away before 1) We'd finshed breakfast & 2) It was empty. I had to settle for a cup of coffee instead of tea , not too bad you'd think but coffee in Kenya is worse than tea (unless you're in Kericho apparently). Overall I would probably stay here again -more for convenience than anything but it has a constant problem of taking bookings through Email or it's website but reception or whoever the office bod is that deals with the computers consistently fails to pass the information on to the management -it happened last year too.
