We stayed for one night on a stop over to Diani. You can hear the bar noise from your room so that sucked! It is a basic hotel and the breakfast was really very disappointing. However, the food at the bar area was top notch especially the masala chips.

I hated everything more so food! Can't recommend to a rat coz the rotten mbuzi choma they served me would definitely kill it. Old tiles in the bathroom, no microwave, no fridge ...I mean I can't imagine I spent my 2nd anniversary in this hotel...

Went to Mombasa for a holiday last year. Tried adds places for good food and trust me this was the best place for clean, freshly made food. Had Grill Lamb (Mbuzi Choma as locally referred), with chips and salad. The best in the island. This is a must try, won't regret.
