Just behind The Bue Posts Hotel is a wonderful nature park that is well worth visiting. Great guides company you to the walking tour. The water falls are beautiful. and I could imagining that a cold drink facing the falls would taste great.

Really lovely location to visit... nice scenery & nice garden plus the waterfall :) food wasn't good. Service was poor. Staff seem hurried & not keen to serve. Would recommend as a stopover to freshen up & catch the scenery & maybe a cold beer but would not recommend you eat here.

Was there for lunch today, the waiter was very unfriendly . Told us that the food would take an hour to serve and was not happy to serve clients. Was demotivated!!! We left the place immediately. Otherwise the view of chania falls is very good.

we stay at the Blue Post in Thika every year in January. We are there with a group called Helping Hands. The accommodations are great, the food is great and the entire staff of the Blue Post is great. We are treated like family.

After eating too much meat, meat, meat in kenya, got a break when I ordered masala chips, roast potatoes, and samosa here. The masala chips tasted even better the next morning. Great view of falls, reasonable pricing, and good food.

The old pioneers needed a place to stay on the journey north from Nairobi during the early colonial days. Just opposite the Chania Falls, a Blue Post Hotel was built, to offer a break before going north to the white Man's Country and the highlands. The hotel was gradually extended and became a popular stop over to watch to 2... More

The hotel is nested between two waterfalls and the gardens are well kept we had to wait for twenty service before we could get service which was wanting the food was okay. The children's park was average lots needs to be done. I found it expensive for such standards.
