My family and I are no strangers to self-catering establishments but we rate Mpeta Guest House as the best value for money.
The location is just far enough out of town to feel like a retreat, but close enough for one to nip out for a meal or to a night spot at any time.
It's also the perfect place for runners to get their daily fix because the road is smooth and has great shoulders.
The staff were warm and friendly and made us feel so welcome, even though we arrived at 11:00pm! The units are spacious and beautifully furnished.
We were delighted to discover that they do the dishes, clean your vehical, press your clothes and provide the daily paper as well AT NO EXTRA COST.
They have DSTV too and they made sure we were never out off Milo and Coffee.
Their restaurant provides very reasonably priced breakfasts delivered to your unit. We loved it!
That is how they advertise themselves and they are right.
This is a new guest house with both 1 and 2 bedroom apartments complete with a small kitchen.
We had a third floor apartment with a view of Mt Kenya and the Abedares.
It was clean, attractive, and comfortable and was serviced every day. They even washed our dishes.
However, the best part was the staff.
They took such good care of us and went totally out of their way to help us.
They even gave us roses on Valentine's Day.
Small shops are an easy walk away but Nyeri is either a short drive or matatu ride from Mpeta. Breakfast can be ordered but we did our own cooking.
