"Relaxing spot for an overnight layover"

1 night Arrived 20 Jun 2010
"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." See all these reviews: 8n in Tanzania; 5n in Rwanda; 1n in Kenya

"Macuashla house was a great place to relax"

1 night Arrived 31 Aug 2009
"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!" See all these reviews: 6n in Rwanda; 1n in Kenya

"Comfortable stay"

1 night Arrived 24 Jul 2009
"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." See all these reviews: 6n in Rwanda; 4n in Zanzibar; 1n in Kenya; 1n in Tanzania

"Macushla house overnight"

1 night Arrived 21 Jul 2009
"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." See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar; 1n in Kenya

"Macushla House review"

1 night Arrived 19 Jul 2009
"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." See all these reviews: 13n in Tanzania; 1n in Kenya

"Macushla House review"

2 nights Arrived 6 Jul 2009
"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." See all these reviews: 5n in Tanzania; 4n in Zanzibar; 3n in Kenya
