From my room, I can view the small lake, gees, grass ground, and clean asmostphere! It is also comfortable and special type of food for breakfast and any meal servered, e.g. by table coffee serve with your own small inox pots of coffee, milk. Great to stay and enjoyable in Qaribu Inn (meaning of Welcome in Swahili language).

Room Tip: 5th Room have a best view and quiete

Staid here for a week, had some good dinners in the restaurant but the last one (I ordered a burger) made me very, very sick and kept me in bed for almost 3 days. As I told reception the only response was "we'll make sure to inform the kitchen", didn't even apologize.

So it's a clean, simple hotel where you can stay if you're on a budget (though rooms are a bit small, WiFi is very slow and didn't had hot water one day) but would not run the risk of eating here.

What you would expect from a 50USD/ night hotel.
The rooms are ok, decently clean, though not very spacious. Shower and bathroom could have been in better conditions.
Lovely outdoor seating area of the restaurant, fantastic for any meal, with a little lake where you can see some really nice birds flying around. Peaceful atmosphere.
The buffet breakfast is good and so is the lunch. Not so much the à la carte offer, which is limited and not of the highest quality. Though prices are reasonable.
Staff is very friendly and accomodating.

Room Tip: Frogs in the lake can be loud. If possible pick on the other side.

Stayed here for a week for about $400 USD.

Staff is great and the marketing manager, Kenneth Thuo, was able to quickly solve a payment SNAFU that was stressing my colleague.

Great hot showers with a large rainfall head, in fact they could save some money by turning the temp down. Be careful because the tile floors are extremely slippery.

Room is about the size of a college dorm room, but who case when all I did was sleep on the firm and comfortable mattress.

The hotel food is uneven. The best parts of the $10USD breakfast buffet were the omelettes and the excellent grilled veggies. The rest of the menu is OK, but after a long day at work and a cold Tusker (local beer) you'll be fine.

One tip, ask for two room keys. You need to insert a card key to turn on the power in your room, so you use the second card key charge your laptop or some device while you're gone.

I would stay here again.
