We spent an afternoon and a morning here while we were waiting to continue our 5-day safari. When we first arrived, we were the only people who were staying in the hotel. This was nice because we had the entire garden area to ourselves while we ate and relaxed.

Positive: The food was excellent! While breakfast was standard fare, lunch and dinner were fabulous. I cannot stress how good the food was. Also, the service from the staff was great. Everyone helped us with any need we had, and were always willing to help us. Great job! Lastly, the area is quiet so you can relax and rest away from noise in the garden.

Neutral: Internet wasn't working and TV was limited to one channel which you had to use mobile money to purchase. If we hadn't had our books, we would have been itching for some sort of entertainment during our stay. We also had some problems in the morning with the water, but the staff were able to fix the problem in time for us to shower, pack, and leave for our next safari.

Negative: Plaster in the bathroom kept crumbling off the walls and falling everywhere each time we closed the door.

All in all, the staff and food is what really set this hotel apart from the others during our stay in Kenya. I don't think I will every have food this good again at a budget hotel!

Very nice personal! Very kind! They helped us with the tour. The food was really good. The room was clean. Wifi works in the whole hotel. Great to spend a couple of days there. We walked to the town and it is very safe town.

Quiet place in Naivasha. Good service, clean rooms. Small restaurant inside, cold beer. The territory and infrastructure is too small and basic to call it "resort", but it has everything what a backpacker may need.

The only "-": weak WIFI, absent in the rooms, only present on the ground floor and in the restaurant.

This place is basic and budget but the service is exceptional. Breakfast and dinner was a great experienced with 3 course meals.
The beds were comfortable and although our showers didn't work properly they gave us another room with a perfectly good shower.

The Taphe guest house is clean and nicely arranged Hotel. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. Plenty of hot water in the shower, even though the bathroom could use a little renovation. Staff very nice and pleasant. Breakfast was excellent included, eggs, pancakes, toast, fruits, juice, and coffee. A nice place to stay before a visit to the park.
