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.

We were only there one (short) night but were made to feel very welcome and loved the house.

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.

Short Stay at Macushla House

Qualified rating, owing to the barest of time spent - predominantly sleeping between connecting flights via Nairobi. Never saw the place in the daylight, so difficult to provide overall assessment.

Place was clean and nicely decorated - bed was mercifully comfortable. Owners had waited up and were welcoming and attentive - even at delayed 1130 pm arrival owing to diabolical road transfer (appaling road conditions and traffic jam). On reflection, the place is a little too far removed from Nairobi Airport to provide a relaxing short stopover between flights.

Breakfast choice was varied and good standard, given the early hour. It was always going to be a night-stopover, but in the circumstances perhaps an airport-adjacent room would have sufficed. A shame we weren't able to enjoy more of Macushla.

We had to wait an hour at the airport as the transfer was arranged for the wrong flight.

Macushla House review

Friendly staff.

Room 1 bathroom was a little shabby and shower was little more than a drip.

Drive from Nairobi airport interrupted by Police roadblocks.

Expert Africa comments

Machushla House is a small, friendly guesthouse, however it is not top end in terms of luxury. The bathrooms are clean and bright but not ornate - and we're following up with the Macushla about the shower.
