We have very mixed experiences. The room we ended up with was well appointed, secure and clean. Ask for a private room by the tennis court, ours was room 20. Staying in this room we had a great experience and were happy with everything including the breakfast and morning coffee break. However, the first night we arrived our private room was unavailable and so we had to stay in a room with a shared bath room which was shabby and not clean to the standards one would expect for the price being paid. The second weekend we arrived back after our safari to be bitterly disappointed with the room we were given, room 12 in the garden quarter, which was old, dark, a bit smelly and not clean or as nice as room 20. The shower and toilet had separate doors off the bedroom, but had filthy windows and old fixtures. We decided to check out and pay the cancellation fee, and find accommondation elsewhere. Had we been able to get the room 20 or similarly appointed rooms near the sports courts we would happily have stayed and been very happy. 4 stars for the nice room (didn't have mosquito nets but did have sprays) and 1 or 2 for the other rooms, so 3 overall. The grounds were extremely pretty and beautiful too.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Amani Gardens Inn, formerly the Mennonite Guest House has a 50-year reputation of warm hospitality and quiet gardens. Located in Westlands, our guest house is situated conveniently close to major shopping malls, banking centers, and restaurants, yet the place still retains the feel of a retreat in the countryside with our old English-style buildings and ancient trees. You can spend the morning quietly reading under a 100-year old jacaranda tree, or hop in a taxi and be exploring down town a few minutes later. Amani means peace in Swahili which is a distinctive of the Mennonites. We hope you will find our gardens a peaceful oasis in the middle of a bustling city. Amani means peace in Kiswahili. Spacious gardens, friendly staff, and traditional American food bring our guests back again and again. Amani Gardens is under the Mennonite Board of East Africa. ... more less
