I stayed here in December, it is basically on the budget side and is located close to Lake Victoria, about two streets away, though some rooms do not have a view of the lake at all. The first two nights I hardly slept, noisy motorcycles late at night, and dogs howling. I only slept reasonably after my room was changed. The food did not work for me, it is mostly pizza based, and I am not a great fan of pizza, I can only tolerate it in small doses at a time. Other food options are available but are rather limited and do require some forward planning, i.e. letting the staff know what you want to have for supper in the morning so that they can source the ingredients during the day. Breakfast is rather simple, with little variety. Generally, the rooms are spacious, furnished in a simple but welcoming manner. The first room I stayed in had a problem with the fan, the second one was fine. I also experienced problems with the hand basins in both bathrooms. The basins themselves are reasonably large, and the taps are of good quality. However, the placement of the taps is somehow not right, I could not wash my hands without touching either the tap or the basin, the taps are set too close to the basins. There is no alcohol served at the establishment, making it a favourite for missionaries.
