Meru County Hotel

You are Here: › Meru County Hotel

The Meru County Hotel is a good hotel when in the context of rural Kenya. The odd superficial fault such as some showers not working should not overshadow the fact that the food is good, service is fine and the staff is well trained and polite.

Our group appeared out of a dark and stormy night with 14 guests in some unusual vehicles and they did not bat an eyelid and were organised enough to sort out an evening meal for us without much delay.

They were also quite happy to give us access into the bar in the morning before we left so that we could get online. So the MCH is highly recommended.

The Meru County is a close to the centre of Meru town. By rural Kenyan standards this is a reasonable choice for the traveller.

The hotel is situated in its own grounds and offers a restaurant, outdoor garden restaurant and a bar. It is a four story block building in its own grounds surounded by a wall with security guards at the gate.

Rooms are in need of redecoration/refurbishment but are a reasonable size and are clean. They have a tv, telephone and a bathroom with either a shower or a bath.

The hot water is not always reliable. Beds have a mosquito net but mosquitoes are not a big problem in Meru which is a cold place by Kenyan standards, due to its high altitude location, even though it is on the Equator.

All staff are friendly and do their best to be helpful. The main restaurant offers a reasonable menu, service can be slow but the food is ok.

Breakfast is served in the main restaurant, there is a very limited buffet and you can order eggs etc from the staff. Prices are very low by Western standards for both food and accommodation.

This is a clean,safe hotel offering basic standards which are acceptable to travellers, it is certainly not a luxury tourist hotel by any means but a reasonable, clean and safe base for visitors to Meru town.
