Macushla House review

Our host/owner Grant was very accommodating and helpful. The staff was excellent especially our server/bartenders Peter and Stephen. The food was quite good and besides an excellent breakfast we eat dinner there each night because it was convenient and good.

The rooms were quite nice and interestingly decorated. However I would suggest in the room in which we stayed (Room 4 as I remember) the shower head and bath tub fixture really needed to be replaced and the toilet seemed to leak while refilling which seemed to take forever to refill the water tank and was quite noisy.

The decore of the inn itself was lovely and the fresh flowers throughout were lovely and the fireplaces in the main living areas were lit on request each evening as a chill took to the air when we were there.

Macushla House review

We thought Macushla House was lovely and the staff were very welcoming.

We enjoyed an excellent, cooked to order, breakfast next morning. Our main regret was that we did not feel we had sufficient time to enjoy the place given that we arrived at 11.00 pm and had to be up to leave at 5.30am to avoid the traffic.

On reflection, we thought we might have welcomed staying another night or perhaps staying somewhere closer to the airport even though it would not have the same atmosphere or introduction to Africa.

Macushla House

We only stayed here overnight on the way out and had a day room on the way back but Macushla had a lovely feel about it and the staff could not have been nicer.

The food was good and freshly cooked to order. The pool looked very inviting.

good but too far away from the airport given the time we had, although very accomodating given how late we arrived

Macushla house not ideal for a transit stay

Too far from airport from an overnight stay bearing in mind we were in Kenya [from landing to take off ] for less than 12 hours and at hotel for less than 7 hours

In addition there was confusion over whether I had to pay for the transfer to the hotel and who needed to book and pay for the return transfer. There was no advice on what time to have the transfer for in the morning.

The hotel seemed good and other guests rated it. Staff were friendly.

Macushla House review

We only spent a few hours at Macushla House as arrived late at night and left early in the morning.

The rooms were comfortable and staff friendly. We would have liked to spent more time there.

Macushla House

We needed a room overnight in transit.
It took us over an hour to get to it through
traffic on Friday night which felt far too
long after two flights . They are clearly well
organised for people in transit and gave us
an early breakfast but we never saw it in the
light and would have been better much nearer
the airport.

Relaxing spot for an overnight layover

Machushla House was a lovely respite after a long day of traveling.

Although it is not located in the immediate vicinity of the airport, it was not a very long drive to get there. Although I arrived fairly late at night, the kitchen staff was still able to make a snack for me.

The room was very comfortable and had a lot of character. The grounds were very nice as well.

Macuashla house was a great place to relax

A great place to relax after our long journey. It was very quiet and calm after previous experiences of staying in the middle of Nairobi.

Shame we didn't have more of a chance to enjoy it. Would definitely stay there again. Great breakfast before we set off too!
