Built in 1946, Petley's Inn is a Lamu landmark. It's the town's oldest hotel and is colonial in style. The terrace and rooftop bar claim exceptional views of Lamu's bustling waterfront. Problem is, this 11-room inn is looking worn. The renovation in 2003 didn't make it modern or quirkily colonial but rather left it looking dumpy. Family travel tips: The rooms are noisy. The penthouse is the only room large enough for extra beds. Air-conditioned. The pool is too small to swim.

Overpriced even for Lamu!

Our stay at the newly refurbished Petley's Inn was a disappointment in every way but one. Our room was noisy, smelled of mildew, and, with an extra bed, had no space to move. To reach the bathroom, we had to crawl over the beds! What's more, the much lauded swimming pool is a mere handkerchief sized square. The rooftop bar is this hotel's one plus. It boasts exceptional views and is one of the best spots for people watching in all of Lamu. Don't stay the night but stop in for a drink.
