We had lunch outdoors with service from the restaurant and the bar. Deep-fried chicken and fries on first trip then Ugali and fish fillet on the return trip. The chicken was low average but the second meal, ugali and large fillets of Nile Perch. was awesome. The outdoor atmosphere under beautiful shade tree. Vervet monkeys and large hornbills were a...

This hotel was the 1st recommendation we got when we inquired for a decent hotel to stay in Namanga! The new self contained rooms with standard finishes are comfortable ,The lawns and planted trees make the place relaxing with cool shade from the hot tropical sun with an inviting swimming pool.The staff are friendly and

Booked the hotel for one night bed and breakfast only to realize that "YOU STILL HAVE TO PAY EXTRA FOR THE SWIMMING POOL" Despite being a resident of the hotel, "the first and the last time ever". The pool was filthy. WE AS GUESTS USED THE LEAF SKIMMER TO RID THE POOL OF INSECTS AND LEAVES WHILE THE STAFF LOOKED...

The hotel is in a great location with vast green grounds but the hotel is run down and the services are very poor. The staff are just laid back. The rooms are full of mosquito's and the bed linens look very old The breakfast is nothing to write home about It is better to cross over to Arusha which is...

You can really get that exotic African feeling at this place. Lush walkways through the grounds and rustic cabins are great. The little spider monkeys come out in the morning and are a lot of fun to feed. The facilities, however, leave something to be desired. Bare minimum is the best description. Most fixtures and sockets work, but not all....

By local standard this is a decent place to lay your head for a night. Bed comfortable, mosquito net (very necessary) mostly in good nic, hot water questionable (couple of good electrical jolts from the system which woke me right up). They could stand to add a fan in the room as it is some hot in there and if...

Nothing bad really, except for all the ants on the toilet. Good food even though we had to wait for it. We were a compani of around 35 and the handeled it well. Namanga is a great town with polite locals

The place is rustic and old but well maintained with a great customer service. The meals are fairly nice and the small house (rooms) are greatly done but miss out on the modern feel. Try it while enroute in or out of Kenya or Tanzania #MachoniMwangu @Kasun3i

It's a simple hotel, no frills and off a beaten track from the main road. The food was good and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's not a 5 star hotel, so don't expect a lot. It's a nice quiet hotel that is mainly used by travelling workers, so not luxurious. The bathroom did need new tiles,...
