I have been going to the quite ugly town of Maua on the Nyambeni hills many times for business. There was really nothing worth where to eat or stay. Until they opened this Ikweta Country Inn! It comes really as a surprise.
You arrive there from dirty roads and then you are in manicured gardens, very clean and comfortable rooms, lots of friendly staff, and the restaurant al fresco offers a lot.
Realy a surprising Inn in an otherwise undisrupted town.
While the town of Maua is not-so-inviting to foreigners, this hotel provided a peaceful and comfortable place for us.
The staff is friendly, the food is fairly good, and the outdoor patio areas are really great.
The cabana-style TV room was just completed during our stay and was a good spot for our group of 7 to enjoy drinks and card games and make a little more noise.
While modest by American standards (internet didn't work the entire time we were there, inconsistent water temperature, etc.) it was a gem compared to the rest of the town. If your travels ever take you to Maua, I would highly recommend it.
