Nanyuki sits at a cold windy altitude of 6389 ft above sea level. There are many establishments offering bed and breakfast packages for travelers in and around town.
The majestic Mount Kenya towers over the town. It is arguably the centerpiece of a Nanyuki visit. On a clear day you will see the whole mountain up to the 3 peaks. On your stopover, keep in mind that Nanyuki is a rather sleepy and peaceful town.
Looking for Accommodation in Nanyuki
Fafa Dante started me off with a visit to the Town and Country guesthouse or something. On arrival, unfinished stairs and lackluster service greeted us. There also followed a rather unpleasant conversation with one staff member.
Naturally, I struck the Town and Country guesthouse from my list of Nanyuki accommodation recommendations. However, the place has good amenities and is relatively well-priced. I hope to revisit the place under more pleasant circumstances.

Queens Inn Nanyuki
Next, we hopped into the car and quickly drove about 3 kilometers outside town. Our drive took us past the Equator Crossing to our destination – Queens Inn. The first words that came to my mind on arrival at Queens are ‘sweet and spacious’ because of the ample space for relaxation and parking. A few cottages for their guests who spend a night there take up space on one end of the Inn. Their bar is well stocked to keep you busy throughout the evening. You will want to revisit Queens Inn because the food from their kitchen is just ‘Wow!!!
At the Queens Inn, you have an excellent view of Mt. Kenya from an upstairs open-air deck during daytime. You can still use the deck at night – the establishment has invested in some cover to pull over the front. It very effectively keeps out the cold mountain wind. The prices here for bed and breakfast are very reasonable.
Nanyuki Ibis Hotel
Ibis Hotel is great, so there was no need to check it out. I know Ibis’ services are good. Their prices are however tweaked a little upwards. Ibis Hotel is an old player in the Nanyuki accommodation sector; they know what they are doing.
Park View Hotel Nanyuki
Nanyuki Park View hotel faces the recreational Central Park. I bet it gets its name from that fact.
