Great stay!
Beautiful property. Extremely safe. Gladys, the receptionist, was amazing- she made our trip as comfortable as possible. Breakfast was freshly cooked and quite good. Close to Giraffe Centre. Uber easy accessible. Would stay again.

Gladys at the front desk was amazing. Warm & welcoming & anticipated your needs before you even knew you had any! Rachel took great care of us in the dining room. Was sad to leave and would happily stay there again.

The staff were very friendly and courteous- went over and above in making us feel welcome. Quiet little oasis of a hotel. Great food prepared for us. All special requests were accommodated. Great location for sightseeing in the area.

8/10 Very Good

Comfortable but dated with excellent service.
Service was excellent and the room spacious and comfortable, but updating of the bathroom is overdue. The size of the bathroom would accommodate a stunning renovation. In the meantime even adding some counter top space would be an improvement. Location was excellent for visiting the Karen Blixen museum but not convenient for the city center. The drive from the airport was quick and easy.

Great place to crash in Nairobi
Had a very lovely stay here, thanks especially to Susan at the front desk, who was extremely warm and helpful. The food in the restaurant was also quite good.
