A great little find Julia Richardson, Kenya

I chose Lucky Bean because it was close to where I was working and because the owner responded within minutes to my enquiry through SafariNow. It is a great little B&B. My room had a fantastic view towards the CBD and was well designed. The standing fan in the room was altogether too complicated though - you just need on/off/hi/low! The breakfast was great and relaxed and all the guests sit at the same table which I enjoyed. There also is a bookshelf with a great selection of books about the local area you could browse through. Highly recommended. And considering Melville's tiny properties I was delighted to find there was secure parking!
