This is a no frills budget hotel however it does provide a very good value for money.
The owner gives you a welcome drink on your arrival and provided a helpful map of Lamu. They can arrange trips etc and were helpful in advising what we should pay for taxi boats.
The room was basic but provided anything we needed. And there was a lovely terrace where you can watch the sun set over the town. The only downside was that our bathroom wasn't on suit although it was still private.
If I was to return to Lamu I would stay here again.
