Having visited several times, we keep coming back. The staff are tremendous - almost like meeting old friends year after year. The rooms are a bit tired, but the surroundings do retain a very colonial atmosphere, and staff friendliness is second to none. Been many places on our travels, but for the last years it has been Nyali Beach. We shall be back again early 2010

We first stayed at the hotel in 1995 and have loved it ever since.It may not be the most imposing of the Mombasa beach hotels, after all it is the oldest. But once you are inside it just pure colonial charm. The grounds are extremely spacious allowing guests to spread out, something
that is not possible in other more highly rated hotels that we have visited out of interest. The staff are just great, warm and friendly always ready to help and share a laugh with you. Many have worked at the hotel as long as we have been visiting. During our visits we always meet other guests many of who return to the hotel every year, sometimes several times or for prolonged stays. The food is very good and the open air buffets every other evening with music by Mombasa Roots band are a credit to all the staff who work so hard to organise it. Yes the garden wing rooms are getting a little tired but they are kept very clean and tidy. The lift to the upper floors is rather a museum piece and is prone to fits of unreliability,so best avoided if possible. The choice of restaurants should satisfy every taste and afternoon tea and pancakes by the main pool is just bliss after a hard day lying in the sun or under the palm trees. Harrys Bar is old English splendour even though we had to witness England being knocked out of the Euros. Yes we love it and so do many others who go back time and time again. Can't wait until next time.

Top Local Tips for Mombasa

Tipping Take plently of 100 shilling notes, you need them as soon as you land. But it is worth every shilling.

Fort Jesus and the old town Take a taxi from the front of the hotel the drivers are great and trustworthy. Agree price before you set off, and don't be afraid to go with the flow! We had a great trip to Fort Jesus, our own guide, a wander around the old town, and then shopping on Moi Avenue in a morning before the tour buses hit the scene.We do wish we had taken the camera as wer a bit worried about it being pinched, we felt completely saafe with a local guide with us.Would go again it was a fascinating historical and cultural expereice.Good supporting sandels or boots though, climbing up and down ramparts and very steep steps, also water and sun screen.Enjoy!

Leave plenty of time! nothing happens fast in Kenya - be prepared for things to happen very slowly, so particularly on your way back to the airport, give yourself plenty of time...
