I stayed there recently on a working trip. It's probably the best hotel in Kakamega, though there isn't a wide choice of these in the town. The food was quite fresh and in healthy portions. The rooms are well maintained and the general environment is cool. There is a swimming pool but it does not afford the residents much privacy....

I order potato salad. Sadly the chef did not know what ingredients were required. IwantedBlack peper to garnish. No pepper pots were available. Neither were any salt pots. Dinner should...

This place could do a lot better. Management has a "couldn't care less" attitude. Parastatals breed laziness, corruption and nepotism. Mismanaged. Mispriced. Unclean pool and changing areas. Pool deck slimy. Life guard? What a joke. Ckean it up or be replaced. Do not underestimate the power of the customer.

Our holiday house needed some repairs so we decided to spend a night at this hotel. Its supplsed to be the best hotel in this part of the country. First no lifts. This can be a problem to some people. We reached the rooms to find no water in bathroom. We went out to eat, came back and no water....

Visited with my family for lunch. I must say it is good place for Sunday lunch out while in Kakamega. I grew up around the hotel during its glory days late 80s / early 90s. Must say the present management has tried to restore that glory. One thing though.. Just remember to double check your bills before paying.

The facility suffers from lack of competition. There simply are no better facilities around Kakamega. It has nice green lush gardens but that's about it. The rooms are depressing. The lighting is not good. The heavy curtains have a tinge of dust - not good for a person with dust allergy. The washrooms have old and chipped fittings. The wardrobe...

Right from the gate. I was welcome with a smile. The staff at the reception were willing to support and ensured they gave be proper direction. This was the same with all the other staffs. Then I was served with fresh orange juice. I felt relaxed. The rooms are clean, well lit and spacious. Drinking water and Toiletries were replenished...

There’s literally no competition: the Golf is the best (and only) large hotel in Kakamega. If you need a room, stay. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the showers run hot water, there are TVs that usually work, and the restaurant has a good menu. When the power cuts off, a generator does supply back up power. However, if you...
