Thank you Golf Hotel Kakamega for hosting me.

The hotel is a tucked away gem in Kakamega. Awesome ambience, comfy bed and expansive scenery to help the mind. Awesome golf play across the fence too.

Keep it up.

We have been to this hotel several times and it has got progressively worse. The food is over priced and of a mediocre standard. The staff hate any children having fun in the pool. You’d think we had entered a fun free zone, rather than paid a lot of money to go to a hotel! Will not use again!

I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy my stay at Golf Hotel Kakamega. The service is excellent; Awesome super-friendly staff who are keen to attend to your needs at any given minute.

But they have a not-so-good experience in some areas that need immediate fixing.

That being said, I'll break down this review into three sections:

1. The Rooms
- On a scale of 1-10, I'd give their rooms a 7.1. Why so? The only remarkable thing about the rooms is the garden view you get from the balcony. Other than this, they lack to a large extent. More work needs to be done on their closets and bathrooms.

2. The Restaurant/Food
- Again, save for the local Kenyan cuisines, Golf Hotel performs average when it comes to the meals. I resided here for three weeks, and I had hoped for international and diverse cuisines on the menu, but unfortunately, I didn't get any.

3. Location
- Golf Hotel has good proximity to Kakamega town. It's tucked in a serene location away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

But it's a walkable distance to the town, to be precise. Several major supermarkets and a mall also neighbor the hotel should you want to buy general/personal stuff.

Finally, the weather is also superb. But Kakamega rains a lot, so remember to carry your umbrella if you'll be staying here for a while.

Room tip: Choose rooms on the first floor or second floor as they have a good balcony view.

On a rainy late afternoon after work. A book and the Tea, no sugar needed. It was a spiritual experience.
The service check, food check, the beds, and oh my word that Tea.
I'll be back again and again.

Comfortable rooms, with a view of their well-maintained grounds. Breakfast was generous, buffet style. Their coffee needs work, but then it's not a typical Kenyan drink anyway. From the restaurant, you can view the pool and see the leading lights of Kakamega enjoying life with their families. My Kenyan friends and colleagues enjoyed meeting me at the hotel -- it's conveniently located in the centre of town. Definitely, my choice the next time I'm in Kakamega.
