"I didn't get a refurbished room and my friends did - there is a huge difference so make sure to ask. The beach isn't great as it is very tidal and is swarmed with 'beach boys' hassling you. However the hotel set up our safari and it was phenomenal - as a coastal safari base the place is perfect. It's a 2-3 hour drive from the parks but if you're doing a 3-4 day safari that's fine. As far as standard of hotel, it's not 5 star by any means but it's trying to be, and this or Serena is the best you'll do on the Mombasa north strip. Due to the lack of tourists recently the value was insane. The Kenyan people are incredibly friendly, and almost all speak English. The staff weren't always brilliantly competent, but were always eager to help and lovely people."

I would definately recomend anyone who would like to enjoyed beach holiday or relaxing to visit this hotel. Its great. Just ignore all the travel advissories. Its all rubish. The place is quite peacefull and very secure. Just dond rely on negative publicity of Mombasa otherwise you are missing a chance to experience a holiday of your lifetime. Just book, get on that plane and go enjoy your holiday at the Severin."
