The whole focus of the hotel seemed to be on German guests which made me and Kenyan guests feel a
little uncomfortable at times. For example there seemed to be quite a few elderly German male guests with their Kenyan girlfriends who commanded more than their fare share of staff attention. Breakfasts were excellent but other food seeed to be designed for German tastes. Hotel facilities close early compared with the first class hotels on the Coast that I'm used to. It seems a bit much not to be able to order food after 10 pm for instance. I also found it a little irritating that chits were required for beach towels lest one steal them (which incidentally I wasn't given when I checked in which led to confusion). Maybe all of this is acceptable to German travellers. On the plus side there is excellent attention to detail in the rooms and the air conditioning is modern and quiet. At a time of heightened insecurity and crime in Kenya I was concerned about access to the hotel which is down a narrow murram road, some distance off the main road, where I was told several of the staff had been intercepted by thugs. I have no idea if this is true but if I wanted to explore the nightlife of nearby Mtwapa, I would not choose Severin as coming and going in darkness would concern me.
