Comfortable stay

Comfortable over-night stay here, between flying in from London and flying out to Kigali.
Location graded relatively poorly as a hotel closer to the airport would have been more convenient.

Macushla house overnight

The only glitch in our entire holiday was the taxi driver not being at the airport when we arrived in Nairobi. The tourist enquiries at the airport phoned Macushla House to sort it out for us. We think that he was around somewhere but not at arrivals holding up a sign for us!

This was just an overnight stop for us, we arrived at 10pm and left after breakfast the next morning. The staff were helpful, staying around to serve us a beer from the bar even though everyone else had gone to bed.

The room was comfortable with mosquito nets and a hot water bottle. The hot water tap on the bath didn't work but we didn't discover it till the morning. Breakfast was fine.

Macushla House review

We arrived late at night and left early in the morning, so it is difficult to comment in detail - we went straight to bed on arrival and left after an early breakfast.

Having taken an age to get out of the airport - channelling every car leaving the airport through a single checkpoint to pay for car parking is a terrible idea - we really could have done with accommodation a little nearer.

Macushla House review

Very good small hotel. #i stayed there 3 times over the couse of a month so got to know the place well.

The staff and owners are very freindly and helpful. When we had a medical problem with one of our daughters the owner drove us into town to visit a pharmacy. They even made us early morning tea when we were leaving for the airport at 4am on one accasion!

The only drawback is that it is some distance from the airport so you need to leave a long time before your flight. Nearby elephant sanctuary is worth a visit if you have time.

Macushla House review

A delightful place with a good ambience I would definately stay here again if I ever found myself in Nairobi. A second night here would have been most welcome

Macushla House review

This is a great stop over which probably deserves a longer stay. The staff are very helpful and the pick up service from the airport works extremely well.

Macushla House review

Would have preferred location nearer airport for such short overnight stay. We weren't there long enough to be qualified to comment further (in and out in a few hours)!

Macushla House review

A veyr nice place for a stop over in Nairobi between safari locations.

Having an arrangement to pick you up is very convenient the only slight negative is it's distance from the International airport but this is more than made up for by the rooms and ambience at the House.

Veyr nice rooms and friendly and efficent staff and excellent cusine.
