The King Post is still one of the best value for money accommodation in a great location in Westlands that I have been to. It is quiet and safe. The architecture of the place is beautiful Mombasa style. The management is extremely accommodating to guests requests. While at the moment the food outlets on the property are closed all other services are operational.
