“Middling average place”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Its up a dirt road in Kisii,signboard not clear,neither is there a sign for the entrance.Parked and walked to the reception and waited for someone to attend to us,which took about 20 mins for someone to turn up.Rooms located near the outside seating area.Room adequate though shower flooded so showered in 4 inches of water.
Dinner in the main lounge which is enclosed with some nice couches and sofas.Seperate bar in the corner.Ordered a beef burger and a chicken burger turned up and they wouldnt believe me until the main chef came out and apologised which was at least a nice touch.
Its a small hotel set in nice grounds but the location of everything is rather haphazard as the outside seating is right next to the rooms.Could do with some more facilities like a pool.
Checked out and they give you a small slip that you present at the gate to be released.
As my friend stated,this is Kisii and you cant expect much.Could be a nicer place,with some training and adjustments.

We stayed for 5 nights on our trip to Kisii. It was during the short rain season and not during a peak tourist season. Staff went out of their way to accommodate any request and even to see to small details that gave added comfort. They upgraded us into their loft rooms for the last two nights which was very nice!

Room Tip: Loft rooms are the best, cost the most and the building is still under construction. The cottages ar...

Hotel is set on a hill just outside of kisii which is itself a manic place so it was good to find a hotel spread over several small blocks amidst greenery.

Room was clean, the shower worked a good nights sleep was possible.

The restaurant was good with selection of food at good value. The staff were very helpful including the owner who went of of his way to ensure that matters were attended too.

This is not a tourist destinstation as such but if you are looking at this review you already know the area. and what to expect. I used it as part of a circuit and would recommend as a stopping point to Homa Bay / Rusinga/ Kisumu. So would I stay here again. Yes.

Room Tip: Hotel is still being improved / extended and I am sure in 6 months it will be even better. Check als...
