we visited Lamu with an overnight stay at Petleys. The hotel is in the perfect location and a good base from where to explore Lamu. From the very start the staff ( pick up at the airport )were very friendly ( a characteristic of Lamu folk ) and helpful. The hotel was charming and quaint being the oldest in east Africa but with no mod cons but then thats not why you go the Lamu. The room was clean, comfortable and full of character as was the rest of the hotel. Obviously there are more up market hotels in Lamu but if you want a part of history then look no further than Petleys or its sister hotel , The New Palace...excellent value for money .
