A Review On The British Guest House Mpeketoni

Lamu continues to be a favourite for both solo and group travellers, and for good reason. The rich culture and almost unchanged history make Lamu the perfect destination for culture lovers and fans of medieval life. To this day, Lamu remains uncorrupted by the noise and pollution that motor vehicles brought with them with donkeys and walking being the main forms of transportation. Amidst all the history stands one hotel facility that offers great accommodation for travellers and locals alike. Here is a short review on the British Guest House Lamu.


The British Guest House is located at Lamu in a small quiet town that is home to approximately 50,000 people. Getting there can be by road or plane to Lamu and later by road or speedboat to the town.


The British Guest House prides itself with being a mixture of both quiet inn and adequately equipped conference centre. There are rooms of different sizes and levels of luxury available to customers according to their preferences. The rooms are well equipped with a fridge, air conditioning, television and free Wi-Fi. There is also a bar and restaurant, the latter that serves amazing Swahili dishes that will leave you licking your fingers.

Customer Service

The British Guest House has an amazing team of workers who will do everything in their power to make you as comfortable as possible. In fact, upon prior request, the hotel offers complimentary pickups from the airport. You will not have to worry about getting lost or conned this way. From the numerous customer reviews on Facebook and other social media platforms, the customer interaction offered by the guesthouse staff rates highest.
